So, where will you get water for your building construction work? Will you buy tanks and purchase water from local water tankers? Or will you sink your borehole right away and use your own water?
If you choose to sink your own borehole at the begining of the construction work, then you have to provide a standby generator so your workers can pump water as and when needed because the public electricity company is unreliable. Besides, your building project may be taking place in a remote area that do not yet have public electricity connectivity.
Now about cost.
How do you minimize the cost of your building project?
A good way to minimize the cost of building materials is to buy in bulk. When you buy in bulk, you get good negotiation platform to negotiate for a lower per unit cost.
For example, if you're buying cement in bulk, you have the option of buying directly from a major distributor at a much lower price. And the distributor's trailer will even ship the cement to your construction site.
The same applies to building materials like floor tiles, plumbing materials, and fittings and fixtures.
However, there's a caveat when you buy in bulk. And you need to weigh this carefully.
Construction workers are known to steal construction materials when the owner is not watching. So, when you buy in bulk, you increase the chances of people stealing from you without you noticing. So, there's a risk with buying in bulk.
Weigh all the risks and do what's best in the circumstances.
