New Constructions


“New Constructions”


Building construction is the process of adding structure to real property. The vast majority of building construction projects are small renovations, such as addition of a room, or renovation of a bathroom. Often, the owner of the property acts as laborer, paymaster, and design team for the entire project. However, all building construction projects include some elements in common – design, financial, and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, and/or litigatios reason, those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome.

Building construction is procured privately or publicly utilizing various delivery methodologies, including hard bid, negotiated price, traditional, management contracting, construction management-at-risk, design & build and design-build bridging.

This is the most common method of construction procurement; is well established and recognised throughout. Here, the Architect or Building Surveyor usually acts as the project Manager. His or her role will be to administer the contract, prepare the specification, tender the works and manage the works from inception to completion. There are direct contractual links between the client and the main contractor. Any subcontractor will have a direct contractual relationship with the main contractor. There is no direct contract with the client. This means there is only one point of contact on the contractual side and a single point of responsibility.

More and more families are looking into building their own homes, or contracting to have them built. Construction practices, technologies, and resources conform to state and local building codes.
