How we keep costs low

80/20 Rule

We believe in low overhead and practice an 80/20 rule for keeping out resources in one area.  

Regardless of the type each construction project or product has fixed costs which represent large amount of you pay. The Build Directory ensures that 80% of our resources are kept in one area which reduces our fixed costs, allowing us to reduce your bill. The result: happiness.

How it works.

We work with over 10 fitting teams each carrying approx 4 people so regardless of weather or work they have a cost. Then we target specific areas to maximize efficiency. By working in a single location we are able to make huge savings. These saving are passed on to those customers who can be flexible on the bulk installations.

The remaining 20% of resources which have a higher cost base are separate teams such as grab wagons, scaffold installers and surveyors.

No Gimmicks – No expensive advertisements.

Advertising on TV with scripting, the basic production crew and broadcasting can cost £130,000 for a campaign of 30 second commercials.  Local commercial radio costs around £8000 for a small campaign package. In local newspapers a quarter page ad can cost in region of £1200 per single insert. Showrooms and retail premises are very expensive to maintain with rent, rates, staffing and fitting regardless of any customers. TV Radio Press can be very expensive and put huge stress on a budget.

All this cost is also not guaranteed to be effective, even if the adverts are effective the responses can be spread so far and wide geographically that the extra cost to service them means larger service costs. Both the cost of advertisements and the running costs can only be recouped through the cost of the product, meaning you the customer pay much more for the same product.  At the Build directory we say “if you haven’t heard our name that means you won’t have to pay for it!”

A better way.

Instead of insulting your intelligence by putting lifetime guarantees then changing it in the small print or adding huge lumps on to the retail price just to offer you by one get one free packages, coupled with with ridiculously high rate APR’s on loans, we offer buy one get none free with guaranteed none commissioned credit and an insurance backed guarantee. We will bring the showroom to your lounge so you won’t be paying for expensive rents and rates! You only pay for your products.

Specially for the retired.  

Our Retired Rate qualifies anyone receiving pensions or those retired from medically and uniform services. We realize that there are many home owners on a fixed income that have needs and wants to improve and solve their property problems. That’s why we have designed a package to help reach all ages after all there is no age limit on happiness.
