If you fail to plan, then plan to fail.

As most of us obviously know, construction is an ever-changing and highly complex industry. Projects big and small can quickly become delayed or go off the rails if the proper planning is not executed. That is why it is so important for construction companies to develop a full-scale strategy before starting any new project. 

An adequately qualified construction company will always be looking for new ways to improve its productivity and efficiency. In addition, by taking the time to gain a deep understanding of the construction process, construction companies can identify potential risks and develop solid plans to avoid them. By constantly striving to improve its performance, a construction company can stay ahead of the competition and deliver projects on budget and on time.

That is one of the many reasons why RFW Construction Group has a team of experienced experts with expertise in the field of construction planning. Advanced planning is key for all construction projects, especially when dealing with larger projects such as warehouses. 

Evidence of why planning is so key can be seen with the situation that Amazon is currently facing. Reports indicate that the company is now facing issues with several previously planned product warehouses in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, and California. Their warehouse construction is now unfortunately experiencing delays, unspecified times tables, delayed hiring, and some plans have been completely canceled or withdrawn.  These delays and cancellations are blamed in part by the fact that the company overbuilt its warehouse footprint earlier this year and that it needs to reduce operating expenses for the time being. Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky stated that, “For the consumer business, as I said earlier, we currently have some excess capacity in the network that we need to grow into. So, we’ve brought down our build expectations. Note again that many of the build decisions were made 18 to 24 months ago, so there are limitations on what we can adjust midyear.”

While some changes and shifts in a project are bound to happen, planning for the future is key and takes a team of construction professionals to help foresee any potential issues. This can lead to growth of a business and happy customers who receive products on schedule.
