What Does A Builder Do?

A professional builder co-ordinates all activities that lead to the construction or maintenance of a home. The builder ensures everything goes according to plan while your extension or conversion is being planned, constructed and finished off with final touches.

The builder first begins their job by obtaining building permits for their client and surveying the land. An architect then designs the blueprints, while the builder oversees the transformations into an actual structure. This includes overseeing the laying of the foundations, erection of the house frame, and roofing. The  builder then works with the plumbers, painters, electricians and other tradesmen on finishing touches.

Builders are often knowledgeable in fields such as carpentry, painting, plumbing and electrical wiring, as they organize and co-ordinate these activities during the building process.

Below are some specific responsibilities of a builder:

  • Co-ordination of Construction Services: Builders are usually have various skills within the construction trade. For example, a skilled extension builder may also carry out work on a barn or loft conversion.
  • Overseeing Project: Builders are responsible for handling the entire building project, from the designing of blueprints to getting a permit to paint the exterior of your house. They are generally well-rounded enough to supervise other tradesmen.
  • Organisation of Tasks: A builder is responsible for the organisation of tasks for every contractor. They organise construction hours to ensure compliance with the time specified by the local authority; for some councils construction work should not be done in the early morning, while others are okay with evening or weekend building work.
  • Supervision of Contractors: The builder supervises the work done by the electrician, carpenter, painter, plumber, and bricklayer, to ensure it is according to plan. He also ensures safety standards are maintained throughout the project.
  • Administrative Duties: The builder takes on administrative duties such as getting a building permit from local authorities, calculating cost and quantities of building materials, and paying contractors.
