Whether you are in the healthcare sector, education sector, retail sector or part of a housing association – you will most likely follow the same strategy when it comes to planning your building project but, have you considered the fact that you will need to forward plan?
This strategy will factor in multiple elements of the building project however, the most important element of it should be the timescale in which you are looking to get everything completed. This is when it is crucial to forward plan your commercial building project, as it will help ensure you can set a practical deadline.
Here at King Builders, we have a vast amount of experience when it comes to forward planning. We understand how important time is and as weeks roll by, prices change and quotes no longer become fixed. We also have staff on much-deserved holidays, new projects coming in and projects that are still in motion – which means it is hard to fit in projects short-notice.
That is why we encourage our customers to forward plan their projects in advance so that we can be available to help when they need us most.
To help give some guidance, we have constructed a helpful guide to answer why you should forward plan your commercial building project. Please feel free to take a read…
Forward planning is essential for ensuring the smooth running and completion of a project. It requires all future circumstances and requirements to be considered and factored into a plan. It also should be used as an opportunity to predict any potential uncertainties and downfalls which could affect the project.
To put it into perspective, if you were in the commercial sector and were planning to have a new building built, you know that you need builders (amongst many other things!). Forward planning would allow you to consider the following when dealing with your builders:
Of course, you will receive a quote from the building company but, this quote is not definite. If you do not sign and agree to the quoted price within the timeframe specified – you will not be guaranteed this price further down the line. The price is created by the building company and is based on the cost of labour as well as the cost of materials, which tends to fluctuate regularly.
Don’t be unrealistic, think of an appropriate timescale in which to have the project completed. To do this, give the building company enough notice time so that they can guarantee this date. Not only do they have to have time to gather the materials needed, but they also need to ensure they have enough staff available and that the project won’t conflict with others.
Many benefits come with forward planning for both you and the building company you choose to use.
In essence, forward planning will help ensure that the project runs smoothly. It will also help your project managing feel far easier!
