Construction business: production of modular buildings
Business in the construction industry is always quite complicated, but at the same time promising. Due to the fact that capital construction requires a considerable investment, consumers are often interested in providing alternative services when construction can be erected with minimal time and financial costs. In this case, it is advisable for them to contact the company that is engaged in the construction of modular buildings. Such buildings are delivered to the object in a practically ready state, it remains only to assemble according to the developed scheme. For such a building does not require laying the foundation, the resulting building can subsequently be disassembled and moved to a new location. All this allows the use of temporary buildings at full-scale construction projects, during any events, for the customer’s own needs, in general, the scope of such buildings is very, very extensive.
There are already companies on the market in any city that offer services for the construction and further maintenance of modular buildings, so a novice entrepreneur risks not taking a significant place and not getting a percentage of consumers sufficient for work. Market research, identification of needs, as well as the search for opportunities to provide better and / or cheaper services are a very important area, without this you can not start your work. Some businessmen begin to manufacture modular buildings, already having established work in other areas of construction.
However, it should be noted that the construction of modular buildings is significantly different from capital construction. This is due to the fact that in order to obtain a modular building, it is necessary to obtain parts of it from which it will subsequently be assembled (this is a very simplified explanation, but the point is in this), and these parts need to be made first. Of course, they can be ordered from third-party companies, but for the correct assembly you need a circuit and technology, therefore, only components that will not fit together will be delivered. In this regard, for such work it is optimal to open its own production facility for the production of modular structures themselves, so that after products of their own manufacture are installed at the facilities. Of course, such enterprises do not exist in all even large cities, but usually one enterprise can serve customers from all over the region. However, the scope of work in any case will be limited, because objects can only be delivered at some maximum distance, then transportation costs will already be too large, which means that the client will be forced to overpay for the service, which will not be interesting to him.
To get started, you need to register as a business entity. You can work as an individual entrepreneur, it is much simpler, because it does not require complex design, maintaining complex reporting, registration will require very little money and time. If there is a need to register a legal entity, then the preferred form is a limited liability company. Activities fall under several definitions, these are (OKPD 2) 16.23 Other wooden building and joinery products, (OKPD 2) 25.11 Building metalwork and their parts and, most importantly, (OKPD 2) 41.2 Buildings and construction works, as well as (OKPD 2 ) 41.1 Design documentation for construction. A simplified taxation system is available for LLCs and IEs; this allows transferring no more than 6% of revenues or 15% of operating profit to the state.
After registration, you need to get membership in a self-regulatory organization that brings together several construction companies. This was done as a substitute for the need to obtain a building license: today it is not needed, but it is forbidden to work outside the SRO. It is the SRO that will issue permits for carrying out certain works, all reporting documentation will pass through it, in general, a lot depends on this company in the activities of the entrepreneur. In other cases, the SRO can also significantly help the entrepreneur in his work, because he will coordinate the activities of his members and even sometimes give orders.
Next, you need to find a place to place your production. For the sake of economy, it can be located outside (but close to) a large city, because the land there is much cheaper, and renting is much cheaper. For work, several ares of land will be required, although some industries require ownership of a plot of several hectares, only here all infrastructure, including access roads, is taken into account. You can buy a bankrupt or non-working plant to convert it to your needs.
Buying several buildings with a plot will cost several million rubles, you can only buy a plot and build a plant with a self-reliance, but in any case it will be very serious expenses at the first stage. If there is not enough investment, then you can rent a factory.
