STAGE ONE

Interview

We took the trouble to create a checklist to make it very easy to read and understand our hiring process for a renovation contractor. Included is a column where your involvement is indicated, as well as parts where we will be doing the work on your behalf.

 

We feel it is important that you know exactly how we work, before contacting us to manage and build your project.

 

Choosing the right renovation contractor for your project is 80% of the work, with the remaining 20% taken care of in the next 2 stages.

STAGE TWO

Deliver

The most exciting part of the interior design and build process is seeing all your ideas and dreams become reality.

 

As a neutral project management consultant, we ensure you can relax and save time and money during this delivery stage.

 

What we do behind the scenes on your behalf:

  1. Assist the client to make payments to the contractor based on phases of completion.
  2. Conduct site inspections and meetings once a week – making sure that the contractor follows the material specifications for the design execution.
  3. Report weekly to the client about the progress, site meetings to keep you updated.
  4. Help the client conduct a series of work inspections & monitor the whole contractor’s work process.
  5. Prepare the preliminary punch listing.
  6. Prepare the final punch listing & make sure everything is properly executed before the final hand over.

Passing the key back to our client does not mark the end of our working relationship however, as there is still one more stage. This is the warranty period – normally between six to twelve months –  that we write into contracts with the chosen renovation contractor.

STAGE THREE

Follow-up

This final step ensures the renovation contractor has done good quality workmanship. In our experience, with this warranty period, the contractors take their work seriously too, as we withhold a small percentage of the final payment for the project to make sure they honour their warranty guarantee.
