    Contractor Loans: An Expert's Guide On How To Finance Your Business

    Posted by Chad Otar on Fri, Jan 11, 2019

    Today's Guest Article Is From Chad Otar

    Running a contractor operation takes a pretty special individual, especially since there are going to be so many different moving parts with each and every project your contracting outfit takes on.

    Hammering out bids, winning jobs, managing a crew, knocking out material lists and – most importantly – making sure that you stay on top of your cash flow are all big pieces of the contracting business puzzle. Because of the size and scale of these projects (even the smallest of contracting jobs), things get pretty expensive, and the odds are pretty good you’re going to need to tap into business loans every now and again.

    Building Information Model as an effective cost estimating software

    Posted by K. Shakti Prasad on Tue, Dec 04, 2018

    Today's Guest Article Is From K. Shakti Prasad 

    Back in the days when an estimation (be it cost estimation or the estimation of materials) had to be done, the estimators had to start with digitalizing the architectural or engineering drawings into an estimation package or the worst, to do manual takeoffs from the design drawings.

    Let’s take a look at some of the risks contractors face while doing their job.
