3 Red Flags for Multi-Family Construction Projects

Identifying red flags early in a multi-family construction project is crucial for preventing potential issues that could lead to delays, cost overruns or quality concerns. And while we’re only highlighting three red flags in this post, know that many other issues can emerge during a commercial construction project.

To prevent budding problems from burgeoning – regardless of which stage of the project you’re in – work with a local construction consultant who has extensive experience guiding and advising on multi-family construction projects in Florida.

Be on the Lookout for These Red Flags During Multi-Family Buildouts

  1. Poor planning – Inadequate planning quickly leads to problems. Whether it’s with your design, project scope or any aspect of construction, rushing to the starting line can be a major red flag. Don’t be fooled by the idea that a quicker start to construction will shrink your timeline. In all likelihood, skimping on pre-construction will greatly extend your timeline (and budget).

  1. Overlooking hurdles with permitting – Planning how you will navigate the permitting process in Miami-Dade should be among the first things you and your project team consider during pre-construction. If permitting requirements are not a topic of conversation, be wary as the process for securing approvals can be long and painful if you’re not prepared.

  1. Poor communication – Ineffective communication among project stakeholders, including the owner, general contractor, subcontractors and consultants, can lead to misunderstandings, delays and mistakes with the buildout – and some of these mistakes can be very costly. Look for a skilled project manager who can successfully oversee your project and keep you informed every step of the way.

Multi-family construction projects are most successful when you are proactive with planning and diligent about the design. One of the best professionals to advise and guide on multi-family construction projects is an experienced construction consultant.

They also assist in estimating costs, managing budgets and identifying potential cost-saving measures.
