Know Your Subs

Making a List, and Checking it Twice
 
 


The Subcontractor Check List:

1. Become Familiar with your Subs and their Sub Tiers

Congrats- You've awarded a portion of your new project to a Subcontractor. Now that you know who is going to be preforming the work, you should ask your project engineer/FOP the following:
  • Do we have their Insurance Information?
  • Do we have their Sub Tiers Insurance Information?
NO SUB CAN WORK ON YOUR SITE WITHOUT THIS INFORMATION!


2. Understand your Project Scope

Your Subs have given you their Insurance Information- Whoopie! They are now legally allowed to step foot on the Construction Site.
  • Do you know what work your companies have agreed to?
    • Read the Exhibit 1 for each Sub
    • Know what you have paid them to Do!
THEY CERTAINLY WON'T BE TELLING YOU WHAT THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN TO DO!


3. Have your Subs' Submittals been Approved?

Ummm- It's not good for your team to be building things/building with things that haven't been approved by the owner, architect, and engineer. Let's please stay ahead of this matter!
  • 4 Dates to Know: Required, Submitted, Reviewed, and Approved
    • Most Approvals are Approved as Noted. IE- if there are so many points that it cannot be fully noted in the note section, then the Submital is typically rejected
MILLIONS COULD BE LOST IF YOUR SUBS BUILD WITH UNAPPROVED MATERIALS!

4. schedule, Schedlue, SCHEDULE!

know it, Know It, KNOW IT! Any Questions?
  • See Above and Below
NO EXPLINATION NEEDED.
