The past year has brought many challenges for the construction industry. Skyrocketing prices of materials and a significant reduction in labor availability have contributed to make 2021 one of the most challenging years on record for southern California builders. At the same time, however, there is a record demand for new housing and businesses which must be met by intrepid builders who are not afraid of changing markets and patterns.
Those who survive these winds of change all have something in common: they utilize the best techniques and settings to optimize their production while simultaneously lowering their costs. They do not sacrifice quality but instead find workarounds and more effective ways of getting the job done. For many builders, this means finding ways to streamline and speed up the construction process while, at the same time, delivering solid, reliable results.
How To Plan for 2022
If you find yourself caught between the rock of rising prices and the hard place of labor shortage, you are not alone. A recent 20 percent surge in construction in southern California alone has driven great changes in the industry. Ultimately, builders are faced with a dilemma: control costs while delivering even more product in a shorter amount of time.
