How the best builders adopt new materials and building techniques to boost quality and profits

How do the smartest builders keep going in good times and bad? By adopting best practices. In this article, Fernando Pagés Ruiz and Rob Yagid talked to many successful, progressive builders, and they discovered common themes that help to maintain quality and ensure profits. Among the elements of success are providing consistent oversight; establishing a network of reliable employees; analyzing the effectiveness of your work; earning certifications for yourself and your projects; and embracing the value of continuing education. Other lessons include involving all parties (builders, subs, inspectors, clients) in meetings before construction begins and adopting code changes years before they are due for implementation.
