What you need to know about Construction.
Are you planning a commercial construction project in the near future, here are some important things you need to know before breaking ground? This process is very complex with several things to consider but here some critical aspects you absolutely need to know before starting construction.
- As a MUST conduct a proper site due diligence - carry out a thorough comparative analysis of the various sites under consideration including visibility, access, zoning, utility availability, future growth, cost, topography and possible setbacks.
- Contract an experienced architect - carefully scrutinize and select a professional well versed with your construction needs and requirements. They should also be savvy and up-to-date with the legal requirements and compliance guidelines.
- Definitely expect the costs to shoot up or prices to fluctuate - Its always difficult to use historical cost data to project building costs for any construction project since cost of materials and labor is very volatile.
- Right-size the facility - Facilities that are right-sized will have the lowest fixed costs, a big factor in positioning the entity for financial success so you remain within budget."
- Design to suit the specialties - There are several considerations for building, depending on the specialties that will utilize the facility. A little extra space now could save you a lot of headaches and pennies later,"
- Consider the working environment - Temperature and humidity control in the OR is one of the top complaints therefore do not let your architect or engineer design around the minimum requirements, which is typically their inclination, but instead use an experienced team that understands what levels your facility should meet in order to have happy occupancy.
- Select and integrate equipment - Ensure that equipment has been appropriately budgeted during development of the financial pro-forma, allow for timely integration of the equipment needs into the construction drawings, and eliminate delays and associated change orders during construction of the facility."
- Don't underestimate expansion - It's always seemingly obvious to approach expansion as a simple matter but that's far from the case. Prior planning is critical to avoid the common pitfalls.
- Consider the effect on day-to-day operations - It's likely you don't want to shut down entirely and lose out on revenue for any extended period of time, so it's important to consider how you can renovate or expand, without disrupting existing operations.
- Know the pitfalls of existing space - Always look out for buildings with separate, covered areas for entrance and discharge, alternatively those that are amenable to adding that feature. Likewise look out for space that will allow natural light, whether through windows or skylights.
