Projects require professional supervision to ensure that the repair work is executed with a high level of quality and matches all agreed plans. TAH act as experienced construction site supervisors in diverse projects. With our help you can ensure that the goals of the project are reached.
The skilful supervision of a building project requires vast knowledge: knowledge of building parts and systems, of building practices and methods in different areas as well as of the usability of current building practices and methods. Furthermore, being aware of prices and cost levels and broad social skills are prerequisites for successful project management. TAH has professional teams that have mastered these and, in addition, listen to their clients’ needs.

A much overused term, integrity is nevertheless an absolute necessity for TAH business to stand the test of time. Although each person within a company is ultimately responsible for the decisions that he or she makes, leadership with integrity becomes all-important for the overall health and longevity of the company. Integrity begins at the top and trickles down to every employee in the form of personal responsibility.
What does it mean to lead with integrity? It means that you must define what integrity means for your business in behavioural terms, instead of as a vague, hollow concept that is open to interpretation. It means establishing the company's "moral compass" as opposed to just complying to your industry's code of ethics. And finally, it means having the courage to lead by example, to be fair to everyone and make your word your bond.
Outline Core Values
To build integrity in your organization and ensure that it really matters, management must articulate the company's core values. Definitions that are too vague, such as "Do good work," are open to lots of interpretation and, therefore, may be somewhat meaningless. Creating hard-line rules and mandated codes of conduct is not the answer either. After all, do we really encourage honest, ethical and truthful behaviour when we tell someone exactly how they must behave? Done properly, TAH can define their values and inspire employees to a higher level of moral responsibility. Though rules and restrictions may be necessary, most people are motivated more by empowerment and the desire to fulfil a worthy goal.
The bottom line regarding integrity is that no company can survive for any length of time, without an authentic, moral code of conduct. But remember, a company can't lack integrity-only people do that. When personal responsibility begins at the top and is carried on down to every single employee, integrity becomes a cornerstone of the company.

TAH Construction is a collaborative activity; only by pooling the knowledge and experience of many people can buildings meet today’s let alone tomorrow’s needs. But simply bringing people together does not necessarily ensure they will function effectively as a team. Effective teamwork does not occur automatically. It may be undermined by a variety of problems, such as lack of organisation, misunderstanding, poor communication and inadequate participation. This TAH sets out some of the key ways in which construction teams can harness the collective energy of all their members to achieve a common purpose.
TAH teams with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose and hold themselves mutually accountable for its achievement. Ideally, work together in a co-ordinated and mutually supportive way to fulfil their goal or purpose.

The benefits of successful teams
Effectiveness is the extent to which a team is successful in achieving its task-related objectives. Successful teams achieve:
- a wider range of ideas than individuals working in isolation, and better decisions

In order to work effectively, TAH team have a clear vision of what it wants to achieve.
Project Teams are more motivated to deliver a vision that they themselves have developed. When team members believe they have made a real contribution to the overall vision they are likely to work hard to achieve it. Shared aims help to create a sense of common purpose and ownership, and promote team identity.
Communication is the process of transmitting and understanding information and ideas. Good communication is essential if a team is to collaborate successfully and make best use of its pooled knowledge. Open communication and information sharing:
Team members need to strive for clarity in communication, and to be patient, explaining and expanding where their ideas are unclear. It may be necessary to make underlying assumptions explicit, as options are negotiated and proposals explained.

- good listening habits, such as re-stating others’ ideas
- where necessary, seeking constructive clarification and asking supportive questions focused on what, where, how and why issues
- being flexible enough to take on board others’ suggestions and to build on others’ ideas
