As your project manager, 21st Century Builders can manage the planning, scope, budget, and execution of your renovation or remodeling project. Your commercial space directly impacts your business; tired and outdated designs, ineffective layouts, and damaged interiors can suggest that you don’t value your business or your customers. It’s important that the design of your retail location reflects your company image.
Our Process – How we manage Your Renovation
Step 1: Planning
We work with your designs and create a preliminary budget for your renovation project. (If you don’t have a design we can connect you to some great architects and interior designers). In this stage we will finalize the engineer drawings and create a timeline for the renovation work.
Step 2: Documentation
During the documentation stage we secure all necessary paperwork and building permits needed to begin our work; this includes city and municipal permits, WCB clearance, insurance, and permission guidelines from commercial buildings with leased spaces. We also strictly ensure that all building codes are properly followed.
Step 3: Building the Specifications
In step 3 we write up the building specifications which include detailed instructions on what materials will be used and how they should be installed for each sub-contractor. At 21CB we provide detailed specs that establish a high level of workmanship and we include follow-up procedures to ensure that our high quality standards are met.
Step 4: Tender
We prepare a request for tender for materials, products, and contractor services. Once these requests are complete, we will create a finalized project budget.
Step 5: Managing the Contractors
We create a detailed work schedule to manage the contractors and to make sure work is completed on schedule. We maintain daily communication, inspect and audit their work, and engage new contractors if necessary.
Step 6: Ensure Completion of Renovation
We perform contractor evaluations to ensure the work is completed up to our standard. In this stage we conduct a walk through to ensure that all safety requirements and code standards have been met. Then we host a client walk through to confirm that all work has been completed as outlined.
