There are a few concepts that are important for any form of construction, and one of these in nearly all projects is that of sequencing. Proper sequencing and ordering of processes is vital for completing any significant job, and a great example here is for any industrial construction project that involves building construction.
At Redi, we assist clients around Wyoming, Colorado and Nevada with numerous industrial construction services, including solutions like metal building construction and others that relate to the erection of new structures. When a new building is being constructed, what are the general processes that will be sequenced through - and what should those involved in the project be thinking about during each stage? Here are some basics.
In most cases, the first major item on the new building construction sequence will involve financing. This could be obtaining a loan from a lender, or it could be coming up with the cash outright to pay for the project in one go. Either way, if you're serious about building construction - and particularly industrial building construction - then you need to ensure that adequate financing is available.
As you're looking into financing options, don't forget about any incentives or subsidies that could be available - these can save you tens of thousands of dollars and make completing your project far more affordable.
While this step will sometimes be carried out before financing is acquired, or they will sometimes be taken on together to allow for better calculations, the second major step in industrial building construction is usually to think carefully about the location options.
You should be looking for nearby amenities and resources like gas and electricity as well as making sure that any necessary permits are going to be obtained with minimum fuss. The distance from other areas of development may also come into play here, so make sure you are careful about this step.
Furthermore, the environmental impact of your building must also be considered here and you should look into any possible restrictions that could be in place due to local regulations, permits, or other laws.
For any kind of major construction project, including industrial building construction, permits and approvals will be necessary in order to move forward with the work. This is often a time-consuming process that can take weeks or even months to see through - so don't underestimate the importance of getting the paperwork done right and promptly.
For instance, you may have to wait for approval from the local government or other governing bodies. In this case, you should prepare to be patient and understand that it is not uncommon for months of back-and-forth communication with officials before permission is granted.
Once you've acquired the necessary permits, it's time to move onto site design. This usually involves a combination of surveying and civil engineering work that will ensure that your building is constructed safely on its given site.
This may also include any drainages, surface treatments, or other features that are necessary for the construction process itself. It's a good idea to get this work done early in the process, as it can save you time and money on the back end.
One specific part of the site design process that may require separate attention is the excavation needs. Depending on the terrain, this could be a minor task or it could involve major earth-moving equipment and highly skilled labor.
It's important to get quotes from potential subcontractors for this phase of the project, as there can be substantial differences in cost for different approaches. This should also factor into your overall budgeting and financing considerations.
Once the excavation is complete, it's time to move onto foundation work. This part of the project is often one of the most critical steps for any kind of building construction - and especially so for industrial building construction. Any mistakes here could lead to significant problems with structural integrity, and costly repairs or replacements down the line.
For this reason, always make sure that you are working with experienced professionals who can guarantee the quality of their work. This should include a detailed inspection report and any other necessary documents for verifying that all applicable standards have been met.
Once the foundation is complete, then it's time to move onto framing and structure assembly. The timing of this step will vary depending on the size and complexity of the project, but in general it is one of the most labor-intensive steps in any form of building construction.
In order to ensure that all of the work is done properly, it's important to hire experienced professionals who are familiar with industrial construction standards. Furthermore, make sure that all of the necessary materials are on-hand before you begin this stage in order to avoid any potential delays or issues.
Sequencing is extremely important for any industrial building construction project. By starting with the financing and location considerations, followed by permits and site design, then excavation needs, foundation work and framing and structure assembly - you can be sure that your project will run smoothly and efficiently.
