We’re a residential construction contractor covering Aberdeen & some surrounding area. Our work usually involves bathrooms, kitchens and some building work. Efficiency is at the core of all that we’re doing, you’ll struggle to find a better team suited for your project.
Compared to other companies, our focus is on efficiency and constantly improving our service. Our business started in 2015 and since then we’ve become better and better. There are a series of projects posted on our website, but basically we can do any residential project which takes at least a few days of work.
What makes our business so efficient? First of all, most of the admin/office work is automated. Almost all the appointments are done through the website, we spend 10-15 minutes only when visiting for quotes, most quotes take 15-20 minutes to compute in total, we don’t have any costs with a showroom, we don’t use sales people (you’ll deal as direct with the contractor as possible) and we also use the best tools possible that make our job much easier.
Our efficiency with the admin work doesn’t mean that we charge a lower rate. Instead, we are left with money that we can invest in improving our business. This usually means technology and staff training. Other companies can’t afford to use the proper tools & machinery or to spend enough time training their teams, which means that they’re limited to what they can achieve, no matter how hardworking or good as tradesmen they are.
There are a series of disadvantages if you want to use us. While we consider that you can’t get a better team for your project, there’s a few disadvantages that you must consider.
First of all, we are very selective about what sort of projects we do. If we consider that we can’t do a profitable job with a project, we won’t do it. It’s Economics 101, we must do a profit in order to be a viable business. If we consider that your project is something we can’t do in a cost effective way, we’ll let you know of this asap, sometimes even before attending a property visit. Some people get upset when we don’t want to quote for their projects, but it would be foolish from our part to quote/do projects that are not cost effective for us.
Secondly, we are a contractor and we want to remain one. Many businesses that do bathrooms & kitchens convert themselves into a sales/showroom business. Although we could easily do this, this is a very inefficient way of managing costs. Business rates, rent and wages for sales people would be huge amounts per year, we consider that it’s much better to invest into various tools/technology.
Finally, the demand for construction work is huge in the UK. The country desperately needs new houses and the old houses need improvements, so all good contractors are really busy most of the times. The capacity of our business is limited, there’s only a certain amount of hours we can work per week, so sometimes we must choose what projects we undertake. When we have multiple projects we must choose from, we’ll apply certain criteria: who is the customer (we prefer to work with good past customers or references from them), location (the closer the project, the less time/money spent on commute), project type (some projects are more profitable than others) and project size (we tend to prefer medium sized projects).
All in all, if your project is something that we are interested in doing, then you’ll probably get the best team for your project you could find. The important part is to understand that it’s not only you that you must be interested in our team, but your project must be suitable for our team.
