A Building Contractor oversees a project of construction work from start to finish. You might be building a new structure or renovating an existing building. Building Contractors will need to organise workers, tradespeople and subcontractors as well as things like equipment and materials. You’ll need to manage budgets and timeframes and ensure all building codes, legislation and safety standards are adhered to.
A Building Contractor needs good communication skills as you’ll be dealing with clients, workers and other building industry professionals. You’ll be supervising a large team so you’ll need to be a good leader and you’ll have to be organised because you may be working on more than one project at once. You’ll have to plan ahead and be able to manage your time.
