You might think delays are an inevitable part of any construction project, but we’re here to tell you they’re not. Sure, you might be shaking your head right now in doubt and disbelief, especially given the supply chain challenges we’re facing, but trust us. It’s true.
In our 20+ years of commercial construction, we can tell you in just three short bullet points the basic components you need for any successful construction project – and by successful we mean achieving the build you want on time and on budget.
Here are three of those not-so-secret secrets to ensuring your office renovation is completed on time:
- Pre-construction – This is where the magic happens. While the decisions and planning that takes place during pre-construction may not be as glamorous as seeing the build come together and installing the selected finishes, all the hard work and collaboration that comes together during this planning phase of construction is what ultimately sets the project and its timeline up for success. Without good planning, the execution is sure to run into issues.
- Good project management – The general contracting team you hire is one of the most important decisions you’ll need to make about the entire project. If you hire a capable and experienced team, you are far less likely to encounter delays. Not to mention, the resulting product will be superior. One of your project manager’s primary responsibilities is to diligently track the project to make sure timeline goals are met and any decisions that need to be made mid-project are done so swiftly and in coordination with the owners.
- Open communication – Mistakes happen when there is mis-communication or no communication at all. You simply cannot make assumptions when you’re undertaking a large-scale commercial project. Frequent communication with all stakeholders will minimize any potential confusion and ensure project goals are achieved.
So, there you have it. An on-time office renovation boils down to accomplishing three (albeit major) tasks: Undergoing thorough pre-construction, hiring an experienced team, and communicating frequently throughout the project.
