A Guide To Successful Building – Be prepared to have a great experience building or remodeling your home or commercial project

Familiarize yourself with the design and building process and learn how to work with architects, designers and builders for a successful building experience. This class reviews the systems, processes, details and strategies you need to help you stay within your project budget and manage your home or commercial building project effectively. Topics and issues include: calculating hard and soft building costs; budgets and the benefits of early price-checking to stay on budget with the design and building process; how to find the right architect and builder for your project; project process flow chart; and the schedule of values for a building project. We also review some sample sets of construction drawings such as the more affordable “Builder’s Set” of drawings and a “Complete set of Construction Drawings” that makes sure all the details and finishes of your project have been thought through by you and your architect or designer.
