Pre-Construction: Getting the Ducks in a Row

You now have in your hands a hardline diagram of the home you’ve dreamed of for years. Time for construction, right? Well, not quite. There’s still more work to do, but fortunately for you, the ball’s mostly in Bungalow Homes’ court to get through this next phase: pre-construction.

Through the pre-construction phase, a Bungalow Homes project manager will take on the role of quarterback, coordinating between the structural and civil engineers, HVAC reps and your home designer. As decisions made by each of these parties can affect all others, it’s the job of Bungalow Homes to make sure each “player” is on the same page and effectively communicating with one another. “It’s my responsibility,” says Bruce Trojan of Bungalow Homes, “to recognize any potential issues with either of these entities and correct it.”

Once the plans are endorsed and stamped by all parties, Bungalow Homes submits the final plans for approval by the local and county authorities, which will ultimately issue permits for utilities, the demolition of your old house and the building of your new home.
