Every month, Utah Business hosts a roundtable event focusing on a variety of business topics featuring a diverse group of industry insiders. Last month, Utah Business invited local building and construction leaders including Big-D’s own CEO, Rob Moore, to discuss trends in Utah’s commercial and residential building, partnering with subcontractors, and the industry workforce.
One of the primary discussion topics focused on the challenges in the industry with regard to subcontracting. Rob had some positive feedback about how our teams are working together to make Big-D’s partnership with subcontractors continue to be mutually beneficial.
“…I think for contractors, we’ve got to be really careful not to overburden our subcontractors, who simply are trying to keep the pace of work. They don’t want to say no to many of us at times and they want to keep the work in front of them… We’re very conscientious about that.
Our prequalification of subcontractors is more robust than we’ve ever had it in the past. We’re making sure that the subcontractors are keeping up, or there’s insurance or financials and people. Our number one challenge to a robust market is: can the sub-contractors keep up pace?” – Rob Moore, CEO
