Communication is key to keeping construction projects running smoothly. There are a lot of people involved in a project including the client, the construction team, subcontractors, vendors, architects, etc. It’s important to be able to communicate with everyone, not just about the project information, but also on a personal level to create trust and build a long-term professional relationship.
Here are some tips that everyone involved in a project can use to communicate well, make sure needs are met, and build relationships.
- Always be honest and genuine – Trust is earned.
- Every interaction is an opportunity to build relationships – You can learn more about someone even during a short conversation.
- Be attentive and responsive – Pay attention to what is needed and respond accordingly.
- Go above and beyond – If you don’t exceed expectations, someone else will.
- Building a good relationship takes time – Have patience and continue to communicate throughout the project, and remember to follow up after.
