Why We Emphasize Upfront Planning

March 18th, 2024 | by Shawn Welland

At A-Z Construction Solutions, we put a lot of emphasis on upfront design and planning so that your remodeling project goes smoothly from start to finish. Here are two stories about remodeling projects that were drastically different because of how the planning process was handled.

Project #1: A Rocky Road

Picture this: a remodeling project that started with a ballpark estimate and a contract filled with allowances for future selections. Details were left unaddressed as the contract was hastily signed. The design phase was barely given any thought.

As the project kicked off, frustration and disappointment took center stage. Last-minute selections led to material delays, which caused a domino effect of production delays and a seemingly never-ending sawdust parade. Costs escalated beyond initial expectations, and the project seemed to stretch on indefinitely.

Project #2: A Smooth Journey

Now let's switch gears and step into the realm of a well-planned remodeling project. In this scenario, careful thought and attention were devoted to the planning and design phases. The client and remodeler collaborated closely to finalize the design and make all selections before setting foot on the job site.

Thanks to this thorough preparation, the construction phase progressed like a well-oiled machine. There were no eleventh-hour decisions or major changes disrupting the process. The project remained on-time, within budget, and the client enjoyed a seamless remodeling experience from start to finish.
