Where to begin?
If you have a project program and or budget, that would be a bonus but La Safor Consultancy can help your program work and come up with a reasonable budget.
The project needs to be properly designed prior to construction. It should be site specific, which is designed to fit the site it sits on, and should suit the needs and desires of the owner. The design process takes everything into account before construction. It's not about trying to figure things out after you build it. Trying to save on design fees normally ends up costing the owner more during construction, so it’s best to do it well the first time around.
Below are just some items you may want to keep in mind when renovating/ extending a home. In extensions or renovations of an existing structure, be it a house or a commercial building , you should always anticipate problems.
Stop a moment and think about it. Do you know how your home was built or what is exactly in the walls or under your floors? Are the foundations of standard construction? Are there signs of any movement showing?
In older homes, you may have more surprises. If planning on a remodel you need to have a contingency plan. Basically you need to budget for problems occurring and not just the construction of the intended design. Your design professional can research or do some exploratory research during the course of design but unless they are actually ripping entire walls, etc. out, there really is no way to see what potential problems are hidden within your house.
An experienced design professional can help guide you through the process but unless they have x-ray vision there's no way anyone can anticipate every single problem that could occur.
