The current situation is showing that the race between contractors on the way to conquer the investor is gradually becoming tougher than ever. The factor that has increased the drama is not strange when it comes from competing bidding costs between construction units. This can be easily explained because everyone wants to find a firm foothold and affirm their capacity in the Vietnamese construction market. But if only focusing on the attractive cost but unintentionally forgetting the factor of quality and standards in the design and construction of factories and industrial houses will the general contractor still be able to gain full trust with the contractors and investor?
Massive selection based on cheap criteria, whether standards in construction are being forgotten?
Society is developing day by day, along with continuous advances in science and technology. This also requires the construction industry not to stand aside. The most obvious proof is a series of measures and new technologies that have been born, contributing to speeding up construction, saving costs, human resources, and especially, the quality is much superior to traditional methods. In addition, it is necessary to mention the introduction of a series of specific standards in the construction industry to adapt to each industry, each nature of each factory, and industrial house project.
Specifically, in the work of factory construction related to the medical-pharmaceutical industry, GMP standards are always prioritized, clean rooms, smooth flat floors, etc. are the requirements of investors. In addition, with the criteria of green environmental protection, saving, and renewable energy sources, the LEED standard was born to bring a comprehensiveness from quality to sustainability between production and the environment of a company submit.
Speaking of which, we can also see the importance of the construction standards and quality that contractors need to achieve. Simply because this is the requirement of the investors before proceeding with construction, even after the project has been completed and put into operation. However, in the face of fierce competition of contractors in offering prices to conquer investors, perhaps the massively running low-cost orientation is creating a great attraction, enough for us to win unintentionally forget the important requirements standards and quality in design and construction.
Effect of cost on quality and standards for factory and industrial buildings
Any investor understands what their project needs, what standards are to operate sustainably and safely, and of course they will want a cost that is in line with the budget they have set plan. So as a professional construction unit, what you want will be quality, prestige, or simply a priority for an “attractive” price in the immediate future, but not 100% guaranteed standard requirements. Once the issue of “cheap” costs is overestimated, is it possible that both the investor and the general contractor must prepare for their own “quality and standard” trade-off.
The consequences for a long process, followed by a series of painful problems. The first is the beginning of a lot of price competition between contractors, by offering immediate financial benefits to the investor with lower construction costs. Racing on price against specific standards is a race with no long-term benefits. Most importantly, once the concept of “the cheaper the price, the more investors choose”, one thing is certain, the corresponding quality and standards are no longer of great value as before and the evaluation The quality of construction and the reputation of the construction team have also declined since then. More dangerous is that when the problem is repeated many times, it will create a bad habit, affecting the bad view of foreign investors when they intend to “join the playing field” in Vietnam. Unwittingly, Vietnamese contractors lose their competitive edge in this field.
Le Gia Phuc chooses to ensure standards, quality, and reasonable costs, ready to convince investors
Besides researching, exploring, learning, and applying new construction methods, Le Gia Phuc always knows how to select and prioritize experimental processes to ensure the right factors for each construction site. Le Gia Phuc’s leadership and engineers themselves understand that not all projects are the same, each project will have its requirements, requiring construction properties and appropriate measures most stable.
Moreover, the cost will also vary between the construction of each specific project. It all depends on the specific standards for factory buildings. This always requires all departments in the company, from project reception, bidding, to structural engineers, design architects, field supervisors, and workers to have smooth coordination in Le Gia Phuc’s operating apparatus. With careful preparation, understanding of the work and technical requirements, it is possible to avoid errors, limit waste and loss, and affect the construction costs of the investor.
