Paul Hatcher, President of Oliver / Hatcher Construction, recently commented on the rising cost of materials, supply chain issues, and labor shortages in the construction industry. In the August 2022 Issue of Heartland Real Estate Business, Hatcher discusses how Oliver / Hatcher recently change the building model to continue on schedule based on material availability.
“The precast walls are normally installed first, but due to delays we resequenced our schedule to start with the installation of the available steel.” Hatcher believes that material shortages are the biggest challenge today. “Communication and collaboration between all parties is even more important as we look for alternative materials, equipment and means of construction that could save time the schedule, costs or both.”
