Phase 5 – Final “Go” - “No Go” Decision
Phase 6 – Construction Documents
Phase 7 – Building Permits
Phase 8 – Construction Administration
Over the course of this series we will "dive deep" and walk you through each of these phases in detail. Nothing will be left out, and no secrets will be held back. We will identify many common, and AVOIDABLE, pitfalls that can cost you time and money.
In the next blog, we will get rolling with the Phase One - Research and Budgeting. You'll learn why these steps are CRUCIAL for all successful construction projects!
