your needs, ask the right questions, and build a team
The difference between a successful project and one that merely
meets the minimum requirements is determined by your choice of builder
and the relationship you forge.
When you are choosing a building partner, there is always the temptation
to choose the lowest bidder. But it is wise to remember that you
are choosing a key member of your project team. A low bid may appear
to save you money, but it is no assurance that you will get the
building you want.
to quality builders
Experienced, quality-minded contractors will generally avoid a lowest-bidder
situation, so a low bid may actually work against your goal of getting
the best building for your money.
The best strategy for saving money is to choose a building partner
who is experienced in planning, because it is in the planning phase,
early in the project that you have the most influence over the costs
throughout the project. Assessing the builder's experience in planning
a construction project is very important.
To plan effectively, choose a builder who is eager to understand
your overall needs and how they relate to your project. Don't settle
for one who is only concerned with delivering a building.
Chemistry and trust are intangible qualities, but they are vitally
important. Your building partner will be making recommendations
throughout the process. You will need to rely on your building partner
for advice in decisions you will live with for a long time. Can
you trust this person?
