CONCEPTION, DESIGN, AND PLANNING OF THE PROJECT
Before moving further with detailed design, project conception is where the project’s initial ideas are considered. This comes after searching for the project’s location and determining the applicable building codes. It is critical to get the help of an architect at this point to guarantee that everything is viable.
Feasibility studies are used to see if the offered solutions align with the key goals. After the project is conceived, the owner, architect, and construction manager go to the design stage, and this provides a plan that illustrates the project’s goal and potential roadblocks.
PERMITS FOR BUILDING
All appropriate building permissions must be obtained before the project start. As various professions have separate licences, this procedure continues throughout the project. It can take long since numerous overlapping agencies must approve a project. Several authorities, including local, state, and federal, may be confusing.
If a project requires any entitlements, they must be obtained before the building begins. The building’s intended purpose and how it blends in or defies city planning, or municipal zoning laws are referred to as entitlements. Entitlements may be aggravating. Townhall meetings, public awareness initiatives, and other procedures are all part of the process.
PHASE BEFORE CONSTRUCTION
This wide category encompasses all work done in advance of the physical construction of a building. The design is simplified, and the materials and labour are assembled once the project planning is completed.
Pre-construction services must build a systematic strategy to calculate project costs, scope, and timeframes. It is important to the project’s success, and it is at this phase the project team is established, and the project’s foundation and communication structure are aligned. Gaps and possible project delays result from an inadequate foundation and communication structure.
