 Challenges

“Our team comprises experienced contractors, architects, and engineers who collaborate closely with all parties. Leveraging our diverse background, we strive to deliver efficient, high-quality construction projects,” said Adam M.

Seylone, a firm that offers comprehensive construction and construction consulting services, has a team of experienced professionals, including LEED APs, ENV SPs, licensed Professional Engineers, PMPs, CCMs, and ACI-certified professionals. These experts bring their knowledge and expertise to ensure high-quality and sustainable projects.

During our interview, we spoke with Adam M, Who has a civil engineering background and experience as a geotechnical engineer and project manager. He brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to every project.

Relying solely on word-of-mouth referrals can limit Seylone’s ability to expand its client base and access new opportunities. While word-of-mouth referrals can be valuable, they may not provide a consistent and steady stream of leads for sustained business growth. Seylone must explore additional avenues for lead generation and establish a broader network of contacts.

The fluctuating economy poses another challenge for Seylone. During periods of economic uncertainty, lenders may exercise caution and become more risk-averse when providing loans for construction projects. This increased caution can lead to more stringent lending requirements and potentially limit the availability of financing for developers. A slowdown in lending activities can impact the pace of construction projects and industry growth.

“It ultimately boils down to the economy. New York has a robust construction foundation with ongoing building projects. However, lenders have become more cautious due to perceived risks, making the loan process challenging for developers. This cautiousness may potentially slow down construction in the New York area. The decision to develop or hold onto lots depends on the comfort level of lenders in providing loans and the sentiments of individuals involved in the development process,”said Adam M.

Seylone also faces unique challenges associated with seasonal changes in a region with harsh winters. Cold weather and adverse winter conditions can impede construction progress, particularly regarding site preparation and concrete work. Completing the superstructure before winter and managing the complexities of working in inclement weather require careful planning and resource management. Seylone must consider these challenges and implement strategies to mitigate their impact on project timelines and productivity.

To overcome these challenges, Seylone is actively pursuing solutions and adopting strategies to navigate the dynamic construction landscape.


Solution

“We were actively searching for a platform to assist us, as it can be challenging for a construction manager or general contractor to discover leads. This industry heavily relies on word-of-mouth referrals, and while having a network is beneficial, it ultimately depends on whether they have ongoing projects. Sometimes, you need more than that. Having a directory with a consistent stream of contacts and projects proves invaluable for finding leads. After evaluating multiple platforms, we found that this one was a perfect fit,”said Adam M.

Seylone discovered the power of PlanHub, a platform that goes beyond traditional word-of-mouth methods and provides a constant directory of contacts and project leads for general contractors (GCs) and construction management (CM) companies. With features like the subdirectory and lead finder, PlanHub has become an invaluable tool for Seylone.
