Contractor Management - What's it all about?
AUSTRALIA HAS SOME OF THE MOST STRINGENT GUIDELINES FOR CERTIFYING ITS TRADESPEOPLE, ENSURING THAT THE BEST INTERESTS OF CONSUMERS AND CONTRACTORS ARE MET.
For individuals, the production of a genuine licence by a tradie is an assurance of quality and safety - and insurance, in the unlikely event of a mishap.
While licensing requirements differ slightly state by state, they are consistent in the rigorous standards they set forth for aspiring contractors. Fortunately, the trade regulatory bodies for each state have online databases which allow the public to check that their a tradesperson is licensed.

The larger the job, the more complex the rules and regulations. For this reason, contractor management can be a worthwhile choice for larger scale residential, commercial and industrial projects.
Contractor managers understand the subtle differences involved in licensing and permit requirements for different types of projects. They will ensure that the work is carried out with full adherence to local state and council regulations, as well as OH&S.
Contractor management also involves sourcing the very best tradies for the job, taking into account quality of the work, adherence to schedule and value for money. At Samico, we also pay particular attention to professional and open communication. Ultimately, our goal is to best honour our clients’ goals for every project we complete, and this can only come about through deft communication with our team of contractors.
