There’s so much to manage in a construction project. When you’re building a new home or accessory dwelling unit (ADU), the challenges just keep coming at you. Here’s a look at the road ahead:
Challenge #1: Knowledge (You don’t know what you don’t know. So you have to find out.)
How much will your project cost? How long will it take? What permits do you need? How do you get them? What are the laws and regulations? Is your land suitable for building? Can you safely route the electricity from your main home to your ADU? Can you get the equipment you need to the site? What else do I need to know? Who has the answers to your questions? The architect? The contractor? The city?
If you’re planning a project, these questions, and a million others, can make the process seem impossible before you even get started.
Challenge #2: People
In any construction project, you’ll be dealing with several people. You’ll start the process by working with an architect. You’ll need contractors to do the construction work, and you’ll be dealing with government offices throughout the process. It’s hard to keep track of everyone, and it’s even harder to make sure everyone is on the same page. Which brings us to…
Challenge #3: Clarity
When anything—anything at all—is unclear, there’s a big risk of mistakes. Remember when NASA lost a Mars orbiter worth $1.25 million because of a miscommunication regarding measurements?
It happens all the time in construction, and miscommunications can be costly.
You’ve got to make sure every message is clear and everyone involved is on the same page.
After years of experience and hundreds of projects, New Avenue has the solution to these core challenges.
We’ve learned how to make sure the client understands the project, the team knows exactly what to do, and the communications are perfectly clear all around. And we’ve developed tools and a revolutionary system to make it happen for every project.
Here’s the key (and we cannot emphasize this enough): Use a design agreement, a construction agreement, and a budget.
- It saves you time and headaches.
- It saves your architect and contractor time, and it saves you money.
- It helps prevent mistakes, which means better quality.
When expectations are clear, everyone is happier. New Avenue makes it all so much easier.
