Within each industry, there’s a lot of competition. But when it comes time to work on certain types of projects that require two industries to work at the same time, there’s a prime opportunity for cooperation, either on the job site or through business-to-business sales.
One combination that illustrates this is when there’s a building project, and heavy construction and architecture businesses definitely can work together to create a more efficient, workable, and profitable overall project scheme. Consider the following five places they could intersect on a large job order.
Lay the Physical Groundwork Together
On a big construction site, there’s going to be heavy machinery moving supplies and materials all around to where the architect needs them. To prevent damage to the machines and the ground, using industrial mats is a necessity. If the architect is aware of this need in advance, there can be early agreements about where to use them and how, so there isn’t a delay in work once the initial resources are present.
Combine Resource Management
And within any industry, there is waste. So if a construction company and an architect get together early and decide resource management issues like who is going to take care of waste disposal, material disposal, and even onsite storage, there doesn’t have to be a doubling of effort in that category. Again, it’s a matter of managers talking to each other early about prior experiences that will smooth that entire process out, and that savings is either going to help the company’s financial situation, or move straight to the client. Either case is a win-win.
Co-Promote Via Digital Output
Everyone needs good promotions. And if industry leaders can get together cooperatively with some type of reliable social media marketing plan that releases consistent output along both company lines, that can be a huge confidence boost among potential clients, and further orders may be requested in a manner than the two industries can continue working in tandem, organizationally.
Plan Future Developments
Future developments are a big consideration for high-dollar industries, and if the construction and architecture industries can combine resources and utilize business-to-business sales plans and relationship, then that cuts of a lot of the competitive bother for the future, allowing focus more to be on the task at hand.
Lay Out Risk Assessments Together
Risk assessment is a big part of construction work, but by having the combined mental resources of managers from two industries, there should be less work in the department as well. There are always potential problems with delays or even breakages, but recognizing potential problems in advance would be a great deterrent.
