How to Help a Commercial Remodel Run Smoothly
Let Construction DesignWorks Be Your Remodeling Contractor of Choice
Materials - Think twice about purchasing your own materials! It's best to let the remodeling contractor purchase them. You may avoid the contractor's mark-up on the materials if you purchase your own, but you will not be able to get a warranty on these materials from the contractor since they did not provide them.
Timing - If you are going to make a change or decide on a color or type of material during construction, do not delay your decision. The faster you make a decision the better it will be on your schedule and pocketbook.
Occupancy - It will be much faster and less expensive if you do not have employees and/or customers occupying the space when the remodel is underway.
Management - You may think visiting your job site on a daily basis will help expedite the process, but it actually slows things down. Every time you step foot on the job site, subcontractors have to get out of the way, stop working and in many cases leave for safety reasons.
