- complex construction;
- reconstruction of houses;
- annex or superstructure;
- assembly or demolition of a building.

Requirements for a construction company
Setting up a business in the construction of country houses usually does not require special education or other additional conditions. Anyone can create such a company. Professional knowledge and practical experience make it easier to do business and can be a guarantee of its prosperity.
Who can contact a company where the owner does not have the appropriate knowledge and qualifications? This also applies to the hiring of workers. An entrepreneur must know how his employees perform contract work.
Exception - all necessary functions are performed by hired personnel with appropriate qualifications. But this approach is unprofitable for the following reasons:
- Substantial additional costs. More space in the office will be required, the monthly payroll (payroll) will grow by 40-60 tons. and more per employee;
- Low efficiency. A business owner who understands sales and performance of work, sells services (it is desirable for him to do this during the formation of the business) much more efficiently, potential buyers close for sale 2-3 times more often;
- High risk of customer withdrawal ... Managers can refer leads to other firms for a percentage of the deal. Often they create their own firms on the model of the employer, and at his expense they are provided with orders.
Certain construction activities require an independent technical permit. If all the requirements of the licensee are fulfilled (relevant education, qualifications, material and technical base), you can apply for the corresponding licenses. They will enable the company to perform the necessary technical functions in construction.
But getting a license will require some effort and expense - time and money. A sensible alternative is to hire appropriate professionals from self-regulatory organizations for jobs that require a license. They have already issued permits to carry out such work.
