Importance of Proper Planning in Commercial Construction

Starting a commercial construction project means that the project owner already has a vision of what they want. However, to bring their dream into reality, they must communicate that vision to all parties involved. The parties include owners, architects, city government,  ground excavators, construction contractors, and other project staff needed to complete the job.

That way, experts can offer advice on any goals that need to be adjusted to make the project more practical. That said, early planning is an essential part of any project. Once the bankers, owners,  architects, and local government have agreed on the design. It is now time to look into the pre-construction planning stage. Here is what we have found to help many to be successful in planning their projects:

Pre-Construction Activities

• Ground Excavation

One of the most important projects to do before starting is clearing the land where the building will stand. The site prep is key to the building’s safety and longevity. Swick and Son have a highly skilled project management team to ensure that your site is ready for the project.

• Pre-construction Planning

The project managers must come up with a pre-construction plan. The plan is a significant step in the preparation process. Here are the benefits of early and proper planning in commercial construction:

1. Helps to Determine the Viability of a Project

Because there are mitigating conditions that affect all projects, not all construction projects are viable. Early planning with the help of an experienced project management team is essential. They help in deciding whether the project is feasible and how to proceed after a thorough examination.

2. Ensures Clarity in Every Project Detail

Every project manager starts a construction project with a specific goal in mind. However, to achieve that goal, they must communicate it to the contractor and other project stakeholders. Consequently, these experts propose ways to improve and approach the project’s objective. That said, early planning will assist in defining the project scope, scheduling relevant tasks, and planning the overall project timeline.

3. Assists in Budget Allocation

Prior planning with the help of a good management team helps provide an exact budget based on the project plan. A solid financial plan is essential when sourcing for capital to fund the project. Banks and other money lenders typically require budget estimates and project plans to access loans.

4. Saves Time and Money

Performing thorough financial planning before construction can help investors earn better returns on their investment. Discovering potential problems early enough is a money saver. Usually, construction errors create costs that eat into the profit margin.  No financial backer would appreciate construction mistakes.  Fortunately, a project is likely to flow smoothly without any unpleasant surprises with a good planning team. By saving on such costs, investors can make more profit on their investments.
