3 Reasons to Hire a Telecommunications Contractor for Your Next Development

Whether you’re a seasoned developer or new on the scene, managing the NBN connection on the homes you build can be challenging. Not only do you need to get the complex design and installation exactly right, you must also navigate your way through the difficult (and at times frustrating) compliance process too.

Without a solid understanding of the latest telecommunication standards, policies and developments, managing this yourself will soak up big chunks of your valuable time—and if the finished work is not 100% correct, you can expect to devote a whole lot more time making it right.

The good news is, that there is another way—you can choose to hire a telecommunications contractor. When you work with an experienced contractor, not only will they take care of the entire process, from the drafting and installation to the compliance paperwork, they’ll also get it done right first time, so you can cross it off your to-do list with confidence. So, if you’re wondering if hiring a telecommunications contractor is a good fit for your needs, and would like to know more, read on!

Get it right first time to avoid delays

Free up your time to focus on what matters

It doesn’t matter if you are building one home or ten—it’s a juggling act coordinating all the different elements that are necessary to complete the build. The last thing you need is a small part of the project (such as the telecommunications) to cause headaches and take your focus away from the bigger picture. Due to the complex regulations and specialised skills and knowledge required to complete the job, NBN connections is one area where many developers, surveyors and builders choose to outsource to a telecommunications contractor. In doing so, you can have confidence in the quality and standard of work and importantly, you’ll free up your time to focus on other aspects that require your expertise.  


Avoid unnecessary complications

The last thing you need as you near the end of a build is a hiccup—especially a major one that requires a large investment in time and money to rectify. Unfortunately, this scenario does happen on a regular basis in situations where the NBN connection is handled by someone who lacks the know-how to get it right the first time. Partnering with a professional telecommunications team who know the ins and outs of every aspect of the process does require a small investment upfront, but it can help you avoid unnecessary issues in the long run, as well as significantly reduce your headaches!

Option 2

Done right with zero hassles                                                                            

When it comes to telecommunications, if you decide to go it alone, it’s important that you (and the person undertaking the work) understand all the rules and requirements before you start. These days, councils require VC-81 documents before they will issue a Statement of Compliance, and the documents must be signed by a suitably qualified person or business. The rules are constantly changing and the regulations are often complex. So if you have plenty on your plate already and would like one less thing to worry about, outsourcing your telecommunications needs in your housing developments could just be a game changer.
