00.1. Foundation Surveys

These FOUNDATIONS courses will provide you with a basic understanding of what is involved in building your own construction business, whether you are just planning to get into business or have been in business for a while.  

All the Foundation courses are survey courses in a very literal sense.  You will be answering questions about your vision and preparation levels, and at the same time developing a deeper understanding of where you want to take your business and what is going to be  of you in the journey.

The questions will focus on your business, and are intended to jump-start your thinking about your enterprise, where you are today and where you are planning to take the business.

We will go through courses in Starting a Business, Daily Operations, Marketing, Estimating, Sales Process, Client Management, Associate and Subcontractor Management, Project Management, and Finance.

This series of courses is meant to be be an initial treatment of the topics, many of which will be developed in much greater depth and detail in other Builder Academy courses.

You will be developing your own “Ten Commandments” as you move through the exercises.  At the conclusion of the courses, you will have a road map for your business future, and a firmer grasp on what will be necessary to be successful.
