As a site manager on a big building job or a sole trader with a large construction or renovation project underway; you want the building process to be as smooth as possible. Unlike your tradies, your job doesn’t start with digging holes and laying concrete. It starts much earlier, and organisation is the key to a successful project. There are several things you need to consider when planning the build to make your life easy throughout the process, and the delivery of building materials in Sydney is just one of them.
Before You Start
First, plan it. Check the plans and make sure you know exactly what you are building and the materials you’re going to need. Use your experience to ascertain what is urgent, and what can wait. You don’t need to order all your materials at the start, and in fact, this could be more of a hindrance as it just gets in the way. Plan it well to ensure there are no hassles along the way with missing materials or wrong orders. If you need crane truck hire to deliver anything, make a note. Write it all down, make the calls, get quotes, and order everything you require to get started.
Second, arrange your resources. How many tradies are you going to need? If you don’t have any yourself, contact some local agencies who might have tradies on the books. Once you have the tradies sorted, work out if you’re going to need any large machinery to complete the job. And of course, if you will need to bring in any large storage facilities so you have somewhere safe to put everything overnight. You might also need excavators, dumpers, concrete mixers, and so on, depending on the scope of your project.
You need to check the site is ready and that it has been cleared of any debris and anything that might get in the way of your workers. If there was a previously demolished building, make sure the land has been fully cleared and is ready to use.
Next, you’re ready for the delivery of building materials and your heavy machinery. Crane truck hire is an easy way to get everything you need to the site safely and efficiently. They are manoeuvrable so can get the equipment you need into tight spaces, and they are designed to deliver materials to high levels, on the ground, horizontal or vertical.

Finally, it’s time to start work. Ensure you inform all the tradespeople on site about safety protocols and make sure they know who does what. Construction sites can quickly become messy if no one knows what they are supposed to be doing. As a site manager, it’s your role to guide them.
