Planning and preparation to save time and money

Our pre-construction package means everything is carefully planned and documented and your design and build project will be executed precisely to your specifications.

This is the time when you'll be making critical decisions about the design, materials, and timeline for your project. Proper planning and preparation during this phase can save you time and money in the long run, while ensuring that your project is completed to the highest standards.

Establishing Your Vision

Before anything else, it's important to have a clear vision for your project. This means understanding your goals, budget, and timeline, as well as any special requirements you may have. Working with an experienced architect, or design team can help you clarify your vision, and develop a plan that meets your needs.

Site Analysis

Once you have a clear vision for your project, the next step is to conduct a thorough analysis of your site. This includes factors such as the location, topography, soil conditions, zoning regulations, and environmental considerations. Understanding these factors will help you design a building that is structurally sound, aesthetically pleasant, and environmentally responsible.

Design Development

With your vision and site analysis in hand, it's time to start developing your design. This includes creating detailed drawings and plans that take into account your budget, timeline, and any special requirements. Your design team will work closely with you to ensure that your vision is translated into a beautiful, functional, and cost-effective design.

Budgeting and Scheduling

As your design takes shape, it's important to develop a detailed budget and schedule for your project. This includes estimating the costs of materials, labour, and permits, as well as identifying potential risks and contingencies. By developing a realistic budget and schedule upfront, you can avoid costly surprises later on.

Permits and Approvals

Before construction can begin, you'll need to obtain the necessary permits and approvals from local authorities. This can be a complex and time-consuming process, but working with an experienced design team can help ensure that you navigate the process smoothly.
