Custom Homes Stay on Schedule with Clean Organized Job Sites

When building a luxury custom home in Southwest Florida, organized job sites are a key sign of a disciplined, proactive custom home builder. It’s essential for general contractors to establish and maintain clean, well-organized job sites from the very beginning of the project.

Especially during the dog days of Florida summers, job sites and work flow can be significantly impacted by sudden rains and even tropical storm events. Proper staging of the site, ongoing organization of work areas, constant attention to scheduling, and creating space for materials storage, all make a construction site function more smoothly for subcontractors. This gives easy access to suppliers and delivery trucks when arriving at the job sites, and allows subcontractors to focus solely on the quality of their craftsmanship.

Proper staging, cleanliness, and organization of job sites allows everyone on the site to be more productive. These images show the secondary garage and pool/rear retaining walls and steps are all being strategically held off until a later date. Doing so allows the Nautilus team and subcontractor crews more room to work, and to get the interior dried-in so rough trades can start.

At 9.5 weeks since start date — even with 12 days of rain delay, this Nautilus Homes luxury waterfront project, called Bougainvillea Beach, is on track. Thanks to our project team’s dedication to maintaining a clean, organized job site, and to the awesome subcontractors and suppliers who deliver such great work and product.
