What trade is a builder?

Do you know what a builder does? You might think they do hands-on building and carpentry work. However, that is probably the last thing they do. Builders are more involved in managing the project. Project management is the most important part of their job.

Responsibilities of the builder

  • Creating plans that meet building code regulations and client specifications
  • Providing plans and quotes to clients
  • Submitting plans to councils and getting building permits
  • Managing the building project - scheduling the project, organising the purchase and delivery of building materials
  • Organising, scheduling and coordinating the construction crew, trades like electricians, plumbers and bricklayers
  • Liaising with building inspectors and clients
  • Working within the project budget
