Very few construction companies can carry out their work independently. External organizations, third parties, and all manner of specialized contractors allow even relatively small companies to complete large and complex projects.
Managing all of these collaborations, however, is a significant task in and of itself - one that should be taken seriously. Building strong relationships with the right trade partners is an essential step to ensuring timely, effective, and safe operation.
