The Stages of a Successful Construction Project

Ever wondered how a grand structure comes into existence? What work goes behind in achieving the final outlook? How the construction process materializes?

There are several steps involved in planning and following through with a construction project successfully. It also involves collaborative efforts from professional architects, engineers, technicians, skilled laborers, and of course, the excavating experts at Bob Mahoney Excavating, Inc. Here are the four prominent stages of the process.

The Planning & Design Stage

A construction project begins the moment the plan is conceptualized. While no construction work takes place in this stage, this is the time when you’re going over construction ideas in your head and planning what you want done at your site.

This stage involves a lot of research, and may take up to a few months at a time in case of elaborate construction plans. You’ll want to consult professional architects or interior designers for this part, to ensure what you’re envisioning can in fact be done. Once you’ve finalized the design of your structure and have a layout ready, you may then proceed to the next stage.

The Pre-Construction Stage

This is probably the most important stage of the entire process. It’s when you hire a contractor for construction, ensuring that the land being used is safe and stable to hold a new structure.

In addition to finding a construction manager, you’ll also need to hire an excavation contractor such as Bob Mahoney Excavating, Inc. at this stage. They will conduct an on-site inspection of your property, provide land-clearing and excavation services as needed, and prep your site for further construction work. In doing so, they’ll carefully make the site ready for the upcoming task.

Having received the approval of the excavating experts at Bob Mahoney Excavating, Inc., the construction manager can then assemble a team of engineers, technicians, and laborers for the construction process. This is also when they’ll gather the materials needed for the process and shortlist any challenges that may come along the way, while also coming up with viable solutions for those obstacles.

The Construction Stage

This is when the construction work fully begins. The construction manager will overlook the various tasks being performed at your site, coordinate permits and set a schedule for the construction team. The design and layout planned in the very first stage comes to life during this stage, transforming into the structure you envisioned.

The Closeout Stage

Finally, once your structure is standing tall, it’s time to wrap up the construction project. In this stage, you can expect final inspections, clean ups, and any required paperwork that may need to be filled out. Take a deep breath. Your project is finally complete!
