Own business: frame construction
Not everyone can afford to have their own housing – real estate prices are too high. Nevertheless, today there are special technologies that allow the construction of strong and reliable structures at a relatively low cost. This includes the so-called frame construction, which today is presented as something innovative. However, such a technology has been known for several centuries, and it is quite common in Europe. In Russia, there are still not too many firms involved in frame construction, although there is a tendency toward a constant increase in the number of players.
The popularity of frame construction is due to the fact that the construction of buildings does not require specialized equipment, a small number of people are involved, the construction time rarely exceeds several months (and can be carried out in the winter season), the materials are cheaper, and as a result, the client receives a full-fledged house with all communications for a short period of time and an acceptable amount, and you can naturally live in such a house – this is not a summer house, which is left by its tenants for the winter, not a temporary cottage and not an auxiliary tion structure. This is a residential building. Moreover, when comparing the cost of the plot itself with the frame house built on it and the cost of an apartment in a high-rise building, you can see that the cost of the apartment is lower only because of the lack of need for the purchase of land. Sometimes a relatively large frame house comes out cheaper than a one-room apartment. Of course, all this very much attracts consumers, especially those who are puzzled by the housing issue. After all, if you have a plot on the outskirts of the city, you can get your own home, keeping within the budget of half a million. In which city today can I buy a normal apartment for the money? ..
When offering frame construction to your customers, you need to understand all its advantages and disadvantages. The main fear of the customer is instability to fires, insufficient stability of the structure to external influences (hurricane, strong wind) and generally the suitability of such houses as residential. Of course, the frame house is somewhat worse than the ordinary brick one, but you can live in it year-round, permanently – that is, it can become a permanent place of residence. Comfortable. The cheapness is due to technology, and not to the fact that something is saving. There were cases when formaldehyde hazardous to health was released because it is used in insulation, but even this can be eliminated if high-quality materials are purchased. People’s fears are quite understandable – who will believe that a house can be built for several hundred thousand rubles, and it is important to convince them that this is possible. But you shouldn’t hide the whole truth either, just pointing out the shortcomings and the ways to eliminate them. Usually, this comes down to the purchase of more expensive or additional materials, but all this very seriously affects the reliability and performance of the building.
To get started, you need to register as a business entity. It is preferable to register a legal entity here, and in order to use a simplified taxation system, you need to register a limited liability company. The construction license was recently canceled in this country, but construction companies are now joining self-regulatory organizations (SROs), which monitor the activities of their members. Therefore, after registration, you need to find a suitable “parent company”, each of which has its own conditions for entry. As a rule, this is some kind of membership fee (and rather big, which will have to be planned from the very beginning) and available opportunities for work (that is, three eternally drunk builders with two hammers who proudly call themselves a subcontractor construction company). However, there are also advantages in membership in an SRO, for example, potential clients often turn to it directly, already trusting it, and the SRO transfers the order to one of its participants.
To work on your profile, you must correctly specify the OKVED code, but depending on what services the construction company will offer, its activities may fall within the definitions (OKPD 2) 41.1 Design documentation for construction, (OKPD 2) 41.2 Buildings and work on the construction of buildings, (OKPD 2) 42.2 Structures and construction works for the construction of utilities, (OKPD 2) 42.9 Structures and construction works on the construction of other civil structures, (OKPD 2) 43 Specialized construction works, (OKPD 2) 43.2 Work e ektromontazhnye, works on installation of water and sewer systems and other construction installation works. Everything is connected with the fact that even during the construction of frame structures, you can offer your customers additional services.
