Qualities of a Great Industrial Construction Company

Qualities of a Great Industrial Construction Company

Anytime you're spending money on any kind of third-party service or program, you'll want to do your research in advance and ensure you're partnering with the right individual or company. This is especially true for major industrial construction jobs, where it pays to take the time to look into all your options before beginning work on a given project.

At Redi, it's our pleasure to provide a huge range of industrial construction services, from site setup and safety training to mechanical services, trucking, shut-down work and dozens more specific programs. We're also happy to see our services compared to others in our field -- both because we want clients to get the very best solutions for their needs, but also because we're supremely confident that we're the ones best-suited to provide them. Here are some of the key qualities you should be prioritizing in any industrial construction company before you consider hiring them.

Full Licensure and Insurance

Before you proceed any further with any kind of industrial construction project, you need to ensure your partners are fully licensed and insured. Only a company with this level of credentials can guarantee that they're following all the safety and quality standards under which they should be operating, while also providing legitimate protection for their clients in the event of any accidents or damage.

Any company who cannot provide these credentials should be avoided at all costs.

Experience in Your Specific Area of Need

The realm of industrial construction is a wide-ranging one, with everything from electrical engineering to piping and valve work falling under its umbrella. While some companies might be able to do great work in a few different areas of focus, you want to make sure the one you're considering can provide for all your needs -- especially if you have a complex project that requires multiple sub-specialties working together in perfect harmony.

For instance, if you run a pulp mill, you'll want to find an industrial construction firm that has experience in the specific kind of challenges your job will present. If, on the other hand, you're working with a chemical plant, you'll want to be sure they've worked in a similar environment before -- and are ready for anything that might come up, from confined space issues to those involving hazardous materials.

In short: get a firm that's had experience with your specific industry, and knows exactly what you're up against in terms of potential challenges.

References and Reviews

Another key factor to consider when trying to find the right industrial construction company for your needs is the firm's reputation among past clients. If you're about to hire an obscure start-up, it pays to look into their track record -- and if you can, do some customer reviews or get in touch with people who have used them before. This will give you a clearer picture of what to expect from working with a given company.

There are a few different things you'll want to look for in this regard. One is simply a sense of whether other clients were happy with the service they got from the company in question, both initially and over time -- if people tend to come back for more work or recommend them to others, that's a good sign. Another factor involves how much information clients were given about the work ahead of time: ideally, you want a firm that's forthright and up-front about what kind of program they'll be implementing for you.

Safety

Safety is one of the single most important factors to prioritize when choosing an industrial construction company, and you should do your best to find a firm that puts safety protocols at the forefront of every single project they undertake. Any contractor worth their salt will have documented procedures in place for ensuring no one gets hurt on-site -- as well as rigorous health and environmental standards in terms of how materials are handled.

If you choose a firm that prioritizes safety, in other words, you'll have much less to worry about in terms of potentially life-threatening issues -- and will be able to focus on the project itself without stressing over whether or not it's being handled properly.

Flexibility and Changes

Things can happen in the world of industrial construction that necessitate an element of flexibility on the part of your chosen contractors. For this reason, you'll want to find a company that's willing to make adjustments accordingly -- and is open to new ideas in terms of how best to approach a project in terms of materials, timing, or any other relevant factors.

A flexible firm will always be willing to talk things through with you, and will work closely with you to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible. If the company you're considering seems rigid or unwilling to compromise, it's a good idea to look elsewhere -- after all, not every project can go exactly according to plan, and having an open-minded contractor on your side is important if anything goes sideways.

Cost Factors

Finally, you'll want to make sure you're getting the best possible value for your money -- and it's important to look at both sides of the coin here. Naturally, you'll want to avoid any construction company that's wildly overpriced or seems like they're trying to pull a fast one on you. But it's also vital to look at the flip side: If a given company's prices seem too good to be true, that's likely because they are.

Ideally, you'll want a construction firm that's fair and equitable in their pricing -- not charging high fees for every little thing, but also not trying to rip you off with bargain-basement costs or shafted deals. In addition, if the company you're considering has an established track record of providing quality work at a fair rate, that's definitely a plus.
