Charles R. Wood Builders

We take pride in our employees, knowing that they are the driving forces behind our commitment to that purpose.

What requirement, need or desire will this project fulfill?

With over 30 years of work in the commercial and residential construction business, CRW Builders can help you plan, design, schedule, finance and build most any project you require. You know the old saying, “A failure to plan is planning to fail.” Well, here are project planning questions you should ask yourself and be ready to answer. Knowing the answer to these questions will help you thoroughly plan your next project so that it is much more likely to come in on time, within budget, and fully meets your requirements. Here are five tips to help you better plan your next project.

What requirement, need or desire will this project fulfill?

Before you get to wrapped up in the mechanics of building something you heard or saw about, determine what it is you really need or want. This is the most neglected phase of nearly every project, in part because it can be difficult. Yet a thorough assessment of your needs and requirements is invaluable to every subsequent phase of your project — including design, permitting, construction, furnishings, to beneficial occupancy. It will prevent many false starts, misunderstandings, code violations, and waste of time and resources while deciding how much and what type of space your operations really need. And, most importantly, we can probably offer you a simpler, better, more cost efficient solution than the latest project or product you saw in an advertisement. Let us meet with you to help establish your project and facility requirements.

What budget are you working within?

Optimism can be a good thing, until you are making assumptions on project costs. Here is where the assistance of an experienced professional can help you ensure that you implement a project that avoids significant cost overruns. Make sure you have the funds or financing approved before the project gets underway so that you don’t end up living with a partially completed project for months on end.

What is your schedule for completing the project?

Better planning can help avoid scheduling delays, but problems do arise. It could be a delay from a parts supplier, a plumber who will not be able to do work for another two weeks, or an unknown structural problem that requires special work. Good planning up front helps minimize the impacts of those pesky, inevitable challenges to project completion.

Who will oversee the project?

Larger projects typically involve preliminary meetings with architects/engineers and the general contractor, purchase and delivery of materials, work by multiple trade skills from different contractors, and, of course, visits by your friendly county inspector. Someone, whether the business or home owner or a designated representative, should provide oversight of the entire project. This could be you, but the project management skills of a trusted general contractor are strongly recommended. Let the contractor’s project manager be the bad cop, and you can be the good cop and mediator should a difficult situation arise. But again, good planning can preclude such situations.

Do you have it in writing?

In many cases, people’s word is still their bond. But it is always best to get it in writing. Put your project ideas, budget, schedule, and any other key details on paper. Think it over for a while and refine it before you start shopping for a contractor. That will help organize your thoughts as well as enable you to communicate them more accurately. Get a written cost estimate from multiple trustworthy contractors. Then keep concise but thorough notes as the project proceeds, just in case. Again, a little extra planning effort up front will make the project work go more smoothly and make it much more likely that your project will meet your needs.
