During construction, one little mistake could halt an entire project. Each and every single step must be thoroughly planned, examined, and executed.
We plan each project using our 4-step method. When a client inquires about leasing a long-term building, we guide them through each step starting with an initial consult.
Step 1: Initial Consult
Planning a large building project is a daunting task but by breaking it down into actionable pieces, we are able to minimize risk and help avoid mistakes in the building process.
This is started with a checklist, covering off details of the build. Many clients discover that undertaking a development project is a complicated process with more options involved than they realized, so we simplify it by breaking it down into categories.
We listen. Each client’s issues, concerns, and needs are different, so we narrow it down to specifics. We also encourage the client to think forward and consider upcoming costs rather than just present needs. We try to be as upfront and realistic as possible to ensure our clients always consider the big picture.
We take industry sector into consideration, figuring out the best building layout for day to day effective operations.The better the building layout, the more efficient the business runs while ensuring employees enjoy their work environment.
Step 2: Inspection
With a clear vision of our client’s needs, we inspect their existing property which can be done physically or remotely. We gather technical details including the weight of materials handled, and type of gravel be used for current and expansion requirements. When expansion happens, we must ensure there is adequate room for this to happen.
Step 3: Compliance
There are a multitude of codes and details to be addressed when planning a build. When we have accurate details about a property and know the purpose of the building, we determine the unique permits, codes, and requirements for each individual project.
It is time to move on to the next step…
Step 4: Design
It has been proven that the interior design of a building has a huge impact on company employees as well as clients. Thus, we make it mandatory for clients to hire an interior designer, or use one of our recommended designers. An experienced interior designer brings value to the table by taking the same materials you or I might choose and adding in a mix of color to produce the “Wow!” factor.
Attention To Detail
There can never be too many details. The more detail you gather during the planning stages, the fewer mistakes you will make during the actual building process.
