Started Working for a Contractor

Posted on 16 September 2016 under Uncategorized

At this point in time I do not have any real knowledge in this line of work or at least I have no clue how to quote bids on hvac contracts in NYC, which is eventually what they expect me to learn how to do. That is a really complicated thing to know, especially if you have no hands on experience in the field. Of course being able to do the job and being able to figure out how to make money on doing the job are entirely different things. It is obviously a delicate balancing act, because you have to be able to turn a profit when you do the job. However you are going to have a lot of issues when you do not have any real knowledge of the hands on part of the thing. You are figuring out something really quite complicated, with all sorts of underlying factors to consider.

The big thing you need to know is how much material you need and how many man hours will be required to get all of that put where it needs to be. The bottom line is that you have to know what everything will cost at the end of the job. Obviously if you get it just right, then you would win the contract and when you got done with it, you would walk away with a profit. The opposite thing can happen if you make a mistake. It is clear that you want to be careful and you want to do all of your homework. At the same time you can do it all right and still end up on the wrong end of the deal. All sorts of things can go wrong that were impossible to predict. For example the weather can simply be too bad for you work.
