Timing & Scheduling For Your Commercial Remodeling Projects
Organized remodeling programs are always completed in stages, regardless of the sort of work being performed. However, many people have a hard time completely nailing the timing & scheduling for remodeling projects.
Today on the blog, our commercial builders share the best timing and scheduling practices to make the most of your remodel project.
Preparation and Pre-Building
Planning, drawing, and material sampling are a large part of the preparation and pre-construction process. Typically, this accounts for only 10% of the entire building process, although the preparation stages can take years.
The property owner works with other developers, partners, planners, and Sacramento general contractors during this period to produce a viable plan. Our team at Headwaters Construction Inc. suggests creating your commercial construction renovation goals to start this phase of your project. As follows, knowing your key objectives and creating a commercial renovation guide will assist you in setting targets.
Your building project will include multiple decisions, and these decisions will be easier to make if you realize what you’re aiming to achieve. We recommend setting a vision for your initiative with your corporate partners or other members of your company.
The bidding process follows the drawing phase. You should consult with multiple vendors and get a good idea about how to hire and how much the job would cost. Pre-construction and planning stages require significant budgeting, and many commercial property owners need loans to pay for their construction project. To see how much you’ll need to borrow, you should have an idea of how much the project will cost. This is why bidding must come first, followed by funding. When you sign a deal, the planning and pre-construction processes can come to an end. If you’ve signed, you’re able to begin the demolition.
The demolition process of a remodel is time-consuming and labor-intensive. At this stage, the construction team will remove everything that will obstruct future work. Depending on the scale and complexity of the job, demolition will take days or weeks. Typically, demolition accounts for about 15% of overall remodel time. This process may be very loud and destructive, and it might be necessary to switch off the electricity or water for a portion of the time.
Indoor air quality is impacted by demolition. Asbestos, silica, and other potentially toxic materials can be found in demolition soil. Our Sacramento general contractors agree that cautiousness must be taken during this phase of the building process. Gilmore Heating Air and Plumbing, Sacramento HVAC Company, say that particles from the demolition will get into the HVAC system and disrupt its operation. If the HVAC system is operating whilst demolition is taking place, leaks in the ducts will scatter dust across the facility. If steps are not taken, this will have a long-term effect on the atmosphere in your home.
Identifying and Repairing Damages
During the renovation process, it is normal for commercial remodeling contractors to discover damage inside the walls. This can be caused by plumbing leakage, insect infestations, roof leaks, bad wiring, and other issues. Contractors are also able to discover code breaches and bad workmanship. When this occurs, the project’s reach can expand. Contractors must correct any issues before proceeding with their project. This will boost the project’s cost and lengthen the project’s time.
Before the project progresses from framing to other stages of construction, structural inspectors may be called on to ensure that the job is up to standards. This will most likely occur multiple times during the remodeling phase. Thus, Permitting is a critical component of many building programs. Building inspectors are responsible for ensuring the construction work is completed correctly and efficiently.
Your contract should state who will be in charge of securing the permit. If your contractor obtains the permit, the permit fee will be rolled into the cost of your construction project.
Permitting is handled by the municipal offices in Sacramento, California.
Completing Your Sacramento Commercial Construction Project
The finishing process accounts for approximately 20% of the overall project cost. During this time, drywall is installed, outlets are mounted on the walls, baseboards are installed, the walls are painted, stone veneer or tile is added, and the room or rooms are completed. When all is finished and completed, the builder can walk you around the remodeled room to ensure that everything was done right.

The final stage of a project is project closeout. This process accounts for around 10% of the overall project cost. During this process, the contractor applies finishing touches to the walls, corrects punch list issues, and cleans up debris. The final walkthrough occurs at the conclusion of the project closeout process. A successful contractor would go above and beyond to fix any problems that arise during the final walkthrough.
