When embarking on the exciting journey of building a new home, many people envision themselves walking the construction site, watching their dream house take shape. However, what surprises most is that a significant chunk of time is spent in the administrative phases before the first brick is laid. In this blog, we'll explore why the administrative phase in a building project is just as important as the time spent on-site and how we, at Integrity New Homes, aim to simplify this process for our valued clients.

The Pre-Construction Puzzle

One common misconception among potential home builders is underestimating the time required for the pre-construction phase. It's easy to assume that once you've decided to build, the on-site work will commence shortly thereafter. However, the reality is quite different, especially in the construction industry. This upfront phase, before the physical construction begins, is often more extensive than expected.

At Integrity New Homes, where approximately 70% of our projects are custom-designed, we encounter an even more extended pre-construction period. But why does it take so long? The answer lies in the intricacies of the building process, where careful planning and preparation are key.

The Multi-Step Journey

To better understand the time commitment required upfront, let's break down the pre-construction phase:

    Custom Design: Crafting a unique home design tailored to your preferences can take several months. It involves brainstorming, conceptualizing, and refining until your vision is transformed into a concrete plan.

    Pricing and Specification: Determining the cost and specifications of your project is another crucial step. This involves budgeting, selecting materials, and making sure every detail aligns with your expectations.

    Contracts and Financing: Legalities and financial arrangements, including contracts, permits, and securing financing, are vital components of the pre-construction process.

    Design Finalization: After the initial design, there's still much to do, including selecting colors, obtaining approvals from local government bodies, property developers, certifiers, and making any necessary adjustments before heading to the construction site.

Simplifying the Journey

While this might seem overwhelming, the good news is that Integrating New Homes is committed to making this phase as painless as possible. We provide a one-stop solution for our clients, offering a range of services, including energy assessments, color selections, and design. Our team can guide you through the approvals process, ensuring a smoother transition to the construction phase.

Moreover, we understand that every client is unique. Whether you prefer to work directly with a local builder or have us handle the design at our corporate office, we can accommodate your preferences. We take pride in bridging the gap between the planning phase and the on-site construction, guaranteeing you a great project when it finally comes to life.
