The key elements to keep in mind when purchasing for the construction industry is cost. When purchasing for vertical construction (the house) it is imperative that service and quality levels are maintained even while reducing cost. It is not in the best interest of the end user to have a house that does not meet the exceptional standards of the consumers. Purchasing for a production builder is a unique opportunity. You have the fun of negotiating with manufacturers on the type of faucets, lights, counter tops, cabinets your company will offer to buyers and they will select to make build their dream home.
Innovation is a necessary part of purchasing for housing. Each project is different from the last due to site conditions, governing entity, master plan and all of these effect how the house needs to be constructed.
