Although Northeast Ohio’s construction industry is struggling, some construction companies are still succeeding.
Those that are doing so are taking a hard look at what they do and how they do it to stand out from the crowd and give themselves a competitive advantage. You need to examine your current scope of work and determine your strengths to help maximize your bottom line.
What can contractors do to grow their business in the current market?
The most important thing is to look at the scope of your work and determine what you are really good at. Take a hard look at whether you are better served by focusing on general contracting, or whether it makes sense to get into a different segment or trade of the construction process. Can you take on more of the project instead of subcontracting some parts out? Doing so can help you grow the top line.
Challenge the scope of the work you’re doing, and consider whether there are new skills you should add for work in different areas. Or perhaps it makes more sense to get out of areas in which you are spending resources and not making money, negatively impacting your bottom line.
