You’re Going To Need Help

If you are planning an addition to your Houston home, you need a plumber, concrete contractor, a framing contractor, someone to do the sheet rock, and electrician, a residential roofing contractor Houston and who knows what else. You need someone to create the plans and monitor the building permits and codes. Of course, all they are available, but managing all of them is a job for a professional. Cost, privacy, security, design, and an understanding of the building process, are just a few of the concerns that an owner has before moving forward with their project. Hiring one professional to guide the owner through the process of completing a project is what Design-Build is about.

The Project Manager

The accepted method for planning your project is called Design-Build. It’s as old as construction. We use it in all types of construction, from large commercial projects to small residential jobs. The idea of having one company oversee the complete construction project takes the pressure of knowing who is accountable, and off of the project owners. Design-Build is the process where a project owner hires one company to take their idea from the planning and designing stage, through to the completion of the job construction. The company hired by the owner for the Design-Build, works directly with the owner, guiding the process through all levels. By working with one company, the homeowner can address their thoughts, ideas, questions, responsibilities, and any concerns to one entity. One company is responsible for the complete process and is accountable to the owner for every aspect of the project.

Your Project Manager Need To Be Experienced And A competent Manager

A Design and Build contractor works with small residential remodeling to large commercial construction projects. They usually have years of expertise in remodeling residential property and the commercial construction business. They collaborate with a network of professionals (sub-contractors)who have expertise in all aspects of construction from the foundation through every step to supervising the metal roofing Houston. From design to engineering, from foundation to completion, they know the people needed and required to complete a project on time in the most efficient manner. Importantly, qualified contractors know how to listen, and will strive to give their client the result they expect.

Your Project Manager Needs To Guide The Process

Contractors are chosen and hired because clients want their project done with the least amount of personal disruption to their lives. They start the process by meeting with a potential client and discussing with them what it is they desire for their proposed project. Based on the meeting, and a review the existing site, and structure in the case of a remodel they prepare an estimate of what the project will cost. They’ll also give a separate estimate for preparation of construction documents, including plans and specifications. Having the plans allows the contractor to specifically address the construction cost of the project including permits, fees, engineering (if required), and hard construction costs. They can then determine the actual cost of the project, and create an estimate of the cost to build the project. Upon approval of the proposal, they schedule the project from start to finish, defining the start and completion dates. Your contractor should manage all phases of the project, taking into consideration the desires and expectations of you the client, and the schedule of completion. Upon completion, they’ll review the project with the clients addressing all questions and concerns they may have.

You Can Manage the Project That Only Requires One or Two Contractors

If you just need some electrical repair, you can hire an electrician and get the job done. You want a new metal roof, you can hire a metal roofing contractor Houston , and you’ll be fine. You’ll find it far easier to hire a project that requires the services of 10 or more to complete.
