5 tips for planning a new building project
Planning a new building project can be a complicated task, with so many different aspects and variables to consider. As building maintenance specialists, we have rounded up 5 tips we would give to anyone looking to start a new building project.
5 tips for starting a new building project
1. Work with a qualified team
A key factor of a successful project is selecting the right building maintenance provider, looking at qualifications, previous work and insurance is essential. Failing to work with a qualified team can lead to ongoing problems, wasting both time and money.
2. Work with different contractors for their specialism
You don’t need one company for every part of the project, instead working with a variety of different contractors who specialise in different areas can be extremely beneficial. Speaking with your building project manager will help you to create an experienced team to finish your project to a high standard.
3. Don’t neglect mechanical building maintenance
Investing in your building maintenance project may mean working with a mechanical building maintenance team to handle the hot and cold-water systems, plus any heating or air conditioning units you may require. One of our biggest tips would be to invest in this area of your project, to prevent issues further down the line.
4. Monitor your expenses
Keeping an eye on the budget throughout the project is another key to success. As you may know, projects can often go over budget due to complications or unexpected issues however, monitoring your spending throughout can help to keep costs low and prevent diverting from the original budget.
5. Think about adding value to your property
Any building project should add value to your property; therefore it is important to keep this at the forefront of your project. Adding very unique or bespoke items to your list may prevent the value from being added to your property.
