Enforcement agencies recommend hiring certified professionals for a gun range reclamation or environmental remediation project. The magnitude of the undertaking requires significant know-how, equipment, and financial input. Subsequently, to avoid exposure from unfinished projects, it is crucial to identify a financially stable and trustworthy contractor. This is because if an issue comes up months (even years) after your project is complete, you must ensure that the contractor you selected is stable enough to sustain regulatory agency inquiries and potential lawsuits and fines.
It’s Not Only Bullets You Need to Watch Out for in a Shooting Range!
The increased popularity of outdoor ranges heightens the cases of lead exposure, presenting a danger to the general public. Vital to ensuring compliance and even surpassing regulatory requirements, you have to identify a contractor with verified financial assets. But how do you do that?
- Scan the firm’s project management capabilities. The contractor should be capable of adhering to the quality requirement listed in the building and construction guidelines. Besides, construction contractors must be able to comply with set environmental standards especially those relating to lead remediation.
- Seek audited financial documents to prove the construction contractor has sufficient company assets. With this insight, you can leverage on the company’s ability to compensate you without going bankrupt in the eventuality a violation of the contract terms arises.
- Contractor must be able to document, with
audited financials, sufficient company assets to finish your project, not just
take your lead and allow it to sustain defending you against a claim or actual
violation without going bankrupt leaving your range unprotected and exposed.
