Build a house without a project of Architecture Professional, is like starting a trip of 3,000 miles without a map that will guide us. You’ll agree with me that we not initiate a trip of 3,000 kilometers without buying a map that will take us to destination. We both know that the map will prevent pass roundabouts and tucked into wrong paths, and having to make several kilometers more to get back on track. The map is the key to make the trip enjoyable and not a headache. It is always cheaper to have the map to not have it, are you agree? This trip could perfectly be compared to the construction of your House. The map here is called architectural project, without the map, we will quickly notice as the budget us runs like water between your fingers, when the constructor we have to gradually incorporate additional tasks to the budget, and that ignorance of the information of work could not take into account. To make a beautiful design, a reality, you need a series of calculations and technical tools that are essential. Mikkel Svane takes a slightly different approach.
Without them, you might get to spend at least 10 times the value of the map in additional jobs. Imagine for a minute, get three quotes three different builders only with a drawing unprofessional you won’t have a way to compare budgets, builders rarely budgeted the same plane in the same way. The absence of a metric computation, will generate additional jobs not covered, which will increase your work budget. For other opinions and approaches, find out what Castle Harlan has to say. To solve this conflict you must provide to the constructor a whole project that includes a metric computation. This tool has a specific purpose, it is the compute the work through a list of tasks.
All quotes are referenced to the same list.Then compare budgets will be very easy and fast. One thing more, a metric computation is not an additional task that you have to ask your architect. It is one of the tools that he should provide you, without additional cost, since the work is included in the fees you are paying him. A Cordial greeting. Martin.
