How We Do It
Experience a Better Build.
A good build begins with good communication.
It starts with the initial planning.
Goals are set, budgets assigned, and expectations are discussed so that from the beginning everyone is on the same page.
It’s no secret that construction is a detailed process, with many-many working parts that all affect the timelines and end results. Suppliers, labor, weather, permits, inspections, and design decisions are just a few of the elements that affect the big picture.
Once the “big picture” is defined, then clients are given a high-level overview of the timelines and decisions that need to be made in a timely fashion. Delays in selections (such as cabinetry or tile) can snowball to affect other aspects of the build and potentially delay construction by weeks—so it’s important to have open dialogue and work hand-in-hand with the builder, designer, and also the vendor/suppliers.
The planning phase is the best time to consider special elements and requests. That’s the most effective time to ask questions, and will eliminate or reduce the need for Change Orders—as well as preempt budget surprises!
As they say in real estate: “Location, location, location!” And in the construction world, the key phrase is: “Communication, communcation, communication!”
