Construction Debris Removal As Project Management

Construction Debris Removal As Project Management

 Every construction project results in something being built or remodeled. It also results in a lot of construction debris.

And cleaning, removing, hauling and construction debris removal is a necessary evil and one that many contractors would love to avoid.

Construction Debris and Project Management

On a very small project such as a one room remodel or even a minor addition to a structure, the debris generated may be easily dealt with. But it doesn't take a much bigger project to begin to see a substantial increase in waste, trash and different types of debris material that has to be managed.

Smart contractors and project managers know that every phase of a project must be closely managed, processes streamlined, and resources optimized. What is often left out of these equations is construction debris. But in order to maintain an overall goal of cost-effectiveness, this is a function that should be equally managed and planned for.

The Real Costs of Doing It Yourself

As most contractors and site managers know, cleaning up and hauling off debris can be done with their own crew members and their own vehicles. Better yet, some contractors feel they have gotten a great deal by simply handing off this work to a local individual with an available truck. The downsides of both these approaches are numerous.

Doing it yourself involves not only the costs and time involved with cleaning, removing and hauling the material, but also the "lost opportunity costs" of having labor and vehicles tied up with debris removal and not with building.

One source has identified at least 20% of a project's costs fall under the category of "miscellaneous" which includes clean up and debris hauling and removal. When you are considering the cost-effectiveness of your overall project management, 20% is a substantial amount to leave to chance!

Bringing In the Pros

Hiring an independent contractor who happens to be a "guy with a truck" can seem to be a smart option. However, going with this approach you run the risks of legal issues, lack of accountability, and possibly finding that they aren't as quick and efficient as you need to keep your project moving forward on schedule.

The fact is you could easily hire a local guy with a truck for some cash and hope the job gets done. But that's the problem with that approach: you hope it gets done. And done right. And done legally. Everything can't always be hauled off to the nearest landfill. And everything doesn't need to be disposed of when so much can be recycled and re-purposed.

In addition, there is the potential issue with improperly disposed material that government agencies have determined as hazardous. Possible liability and penalty concerns should be enough to rethink this option. But with a professional and local debris hauling firm these concerns can be eliminated.

A third option is to outsource this work to a licensed, reputable, professional hauling company like Junk King. The advantages with this approach far outweigh opting to do it yourself. Competence, security and the peace of mind comes with knowing your vendor will do the job right and quickly. The costs involved can often be far less than doing it with your own staff.

And the potential for costly issues that can arise by using a local guy in a truck are eliminated.
