Ep. 15: Making Money on Change Orders with Brad Hogan
No matter how meticulously a job is planned, change orders are inevitable. They can either cost you or make money — the good news is, you get to choose!
In Episode 15, Tim and Steve learn how to make the profitable choice by putting the right systems and communication channels in place from Brad Hogan of Hogan Design & Construction.
Brad’s the Production & Sales Manager at the Geneva, IL, company, and organization and leadership have always come naturally to him. Brad started as a carpenter, and worked his way up to his current positions. He’s developed, changed, and implemented new systems to make Hogan Design & Construction stand out in the industry.
We all know there are going to be changes and change orders on jobs. Avoiding miscommunication at the beginning — at the handoff from sales or in pre-construction — is one key to keeping change orders from costing you.
Brad’s insights into turning your change orders into more profitable jobs include:
- How to structure your contract to avoid conflict
- Empowering your project manager or lead carpenter to handle change orders
- Preparing the client for unforeseen complications
- Establishing clear communication channels upfront
- How to get a higher markup on changes orders
- Holding the line with subcontractors
- And much more…
Getting a handle on your change order process is crucial to your bottom line, and Tim, Steve, and Brad are here to help!
