It has become a common trend in the built environment for the service of the building professional to be ignored. As a building construction company YEMTECH CONSTRUCTION with specialty in building construction and maintenance project design, costing and construction to ensure project are delivered within or below set budget, set time frame and also to clients satisfaction, we attend to hundreds of anonymous phone calls and emails monthly from home owners who embarked on building design and construction projects without engaging the service of a building professional.
From our statistics during the questionnaire stage on why they refused to engage the service of a building professional at start-up 70% of this home owners claimed the cost of service is not affordable or its expensive, so they end up taking critical decision be heeding to advise from Artisans (Masonry, Steel Bender, Carpenter, Electrician, Plumber etc). But along the line project get messed up in terms of project funding due to under estimation or over estimation at the budgeting stage and some other factors not considered such as cost effective project design, proper project planning and schedule, quality control and financial control.
At this stage, home owners will now be on a look out for a building professional to step in and clean up the mess and eyesore in order to put things right and back on track, but according to our observation most home owners projects we have intervened in tend to cost the home owners a lot to carry out corrective measures, re-designing and re-positioning apart from the building professionals fee, all this unforeseen cost are always within 100%-200% higher than the initial building professionals fee ought to have been spent at start up, just like a saying
“Any error or mistake in a construction project is always expensive”
So it is advised that home owners measure the technical and financial risk of not engaging building professionals on their projects, if the cost of the risk is equal or higher than the cost of engaging a building professional then they should resolve to engage a building professional before start-up so that any unforeseen risk will be avoided.
