    86. How To Start Prefabbing (feat. Bill Seery)

    86. How To Start Prefabbing (feat. Bill Seery)

    Have you ever stayed in a Marriott, Hilton, or Hyatt Hotel? There's a high likelihood that you've used one of our podcast guest's bathroom pods.


    Bill Seery is the Vice President of Business Development and Marketing at SurePods. SurePods is the leading producer of prefabricated modular bathrooms in North America.  

    SurePods has been implemented into over 100 new construction projects in the U.S., Canada, and elsewhere in North America with over 30,000 pods in use currently.


    It's no surprise that we're fans of prefabrication around here. If you've listened to the show at any point, you know this about us.

    Here are a few questions we asked Bill 

    - What is this whole “Don’t ship air” thing?
    - Do we need to work prefab into the design early?
    - What do you do to overcome that there aren't many install companies out there?

    We've wanted to do a podcast episode on this for quite a while and we're pumped we got to talk to Bill about this!

    LOOK FOR THESE THINGS IN YOUR CONTRACTS! | 5 Minute Friday

    LOOK FOR THESE THINGS IN YOUR CONTRACTS! | 5 Minute Friday

    Special thanks to Karalynn Cromeens for providing these awesome tips for us this week!


    Here's what we're covering.

    - READ. THE. SCOPE. The scope you are hired to do is not the same as the bid. Make sure you know what work you are agreeing to do.

    - Don’t agree to the terms of the prime contract. 99% of all subcontracts make you responsible for the prime contract as well as your subcontract. Cross out the part that says you are responsible for the prime contract or at least get a copy of it before you agree to it.

    - Add language to any contract that you sign that will allow you to get paid for any increased cost in materials. For specific language see Karalynn's blog!

    - Don’t agree to a schedule you can’t complete. Delay damages are based on the date you agree to in the schedule. Any contract you sign should also include a clause that will give you extra time due to delays in getting materials or finding qualified workers. For exact language see my recent blog article. 

    - Do not do extra work without a signed change order BEFORE starting the work. Before you sign the contract review to see how this particular company agrees to the amount of any change order and the process required to get it signed. If you do the extra work without a signed change order you will not get paid for that extra work.

    85. How To Drive Tech Adoption In Your Company (feat. James Benham)

    85. How To Drive Tech Adoption In Your Company (feat. James Benham)

    What is the best way to implement technology in your company? We asked the man who has dedicated his life to helping construction companies do just that.

    James Benham is the host of the Contech Crew Podcast and is also the owner of JBKnowledge. We had the pleasure of sitting down and talking about implementing construction tech into your company. 

    We asked him questions like -

    - How do I convince people who are set in their ways?

    - What do I do if I don’t have a massive budget?

    - How do I know if one of our new solutions isn't working and I need to change it?

    We also deep-dive into some 90's grunge. 😂
