Design Errors :

Design errors have been identified as one of the common reasons for cost overruns in commercial renovation projects. Designs that are done without ample examination of the site may contain errors in the form of omission or misrepresentations. This will also cause omissions in the project cost estimation which leads to extra work and thus results in renovation budget blowout. Achieving error free designs requires proper planning, extensive investigation, reviews and good communication between the client, design team and commercial contractor . Design Errors

Low Quality Documentation:

Vague or low-quality documentation can affect the accuracy of price estimates. When incomplete documentation is used everyone involved in the quoting process has to make assumptions. This leaves room for error and costing inaccuracies. Low Quality Documentation

Making Changes On Site :

Change orders are often costly because they often include construction delays, material rush orders, design changes or even the tearing out and rebuilding of a finished item. When you’re in the planning stage, making changes is relatively inexpensive. However , the minute dirt is turned on site every change will cost both time and money. So, if late changes are a must, be prepared for renovation cost overruns. Making Changes On Site

Spending Too Much Money On The Wrong Things :

When planning an office renovation, invest primarily on those areas that will make the biggest difference to the quality of the finished project.   Look at what you are trying to achieve and plan the best way to get there. Keep the budget in the front of your mind when making decisions. Being budget conscious from the start is far better than running out of money halfway through a project.

Clients should not sign up with the first contractor they meet or are recommended, and they should never choose a contractor solely based on price.  Clients should always get at least three quotes and spend time analyzing and comparing the prices, contractors, and deliverables before making their decision. Choosing a random contractor who has no experience in handling the renovation project will lead to poor quality work, schedule delays and cost overruns. Choosing The Wrong Contractor
