Concreting is one of the most physically demanding jobs in the construction industry. It’s not an accredited trade but concreting projects are often more complex than jobs in other skilled trades.

Unlike electricians and plumbers, there isn’t a pathway through an apprenticeship or TAFE for skill development so the pressure is on the employer to train their team well.

The high value and complexity of concrete work means it’s critical to get every job right. Errors in the process – particularly early in a project – can’t be undone easily. A mistake can push out the rest of the schedule and can carry the cost of liquidated damages and reputational black marks.

That’s why business coaching for concreters focuses on building efficient crews of employees, subbies and specialist contractors. Some of the key areas we work on with you are:

  • Repeatable Training: Implementing standard operating procedures to reduce the risk of errors and make every job as “set and forget” as possible.
  • Recruiting and Retaining: Attract quick learners and hard workers (and filtering out not suitable), and keeping the good operators with right-size remuneration and development.
  • Management Training for Crew Leaders: Develop the leadership skills of your crew leaders. Build their knowledge of how to manage well-run sites: delegation, training labourers, setting high quality standards and attention to detail.

Innovation in concreting to advance your business

Business coaching uses industry insights to give your business a competitive edge

To an outsider, concreting looks basic. Box, mix, pour, finish. But people within the industry understand the range of complexity across jobs. From faced-paced slabs for volume builders to engineer-designed skateparks, suspended slabs and tilt up wall construction, it takes skill and experience to deliver work that can withstand the pressure of time and weight.

And then there’s the weather. No other trade in the construction industry has to manage a factor that is consistently inconsistent as concreters have to deal with weather. Can’t negotiate with weather, can’t incentivise it or penalise it. Weather puts the “liquid” in “liquidated damages”. We get it.

With serious costs and very little room for margin of error, you need to minimise mistakes and maximise margins. As specialist business coaches to the construction industry we know the pressure on profitability. It’s why we invest time researching innovation in the industry that can give our clients an edge.

But it’s not just about looking at groundbreaking products or tech. Bionic exoskeletons and 3D concrete printing (3DCP) are good to know about but if you’re a concreter specialising in domestic basements, exposed agg driveways or hardscapes for local councils, those technological advances might not be as relevant for you in the short term.

However, other developments such as eco-concrete, faster systems for forming up jobs or self-healing concrete could be commercially beneficial. At Tenfold Business Coaching we explore how these opportunities can give your business an advantage, focusing on the markets you specialise in and your operational methods.

Tenfold business coaches specialise in growth strategies for experienced concrete contractors. As Australia’s most awarded coaching firm, our effort shows where it counts: on your bottom line.
