The Benefits of Construction Plans in Canada

Myles Nelson McKenzie Design Canada-Custom Square Log Mountain Home-Construction Plans

As we tell most of my clients, a completed set of construction plans are really is a great tool for any size project. Whether it’s a custom home, home renovation, or a vacation cottage, construction plans provide a clear vision of the development for the project.

Building Cost Benefits of Construction Plans in Canada

Additionally with a complete set of construction plans from Myles Nelson McKenzie Design, you can get as they say,  “Apple to Apple” construction pricing from the many different building contractors. Construction pricing that is comparable to one another. You will be able to see 2-3 builders that have similar pricing and 1-2  builders that are way high or way low in pricing. It’s usually because they are too busy or they are eager to get the job and will bill in extras .

“Apple to Oranges” construction pricing, usually means that the clients will receive a variety of construction pricing with no similarity. This is primarily because they have inadequate construction plan documentation or no construction plans at all! 

Contractors will always have uncertainty, if they do not know exactly what or how the project scope is really suppose to be built.

Ideas, images, preliminary drawings all paint a good picture, but in the end with the current building codes, a completed set of construction plans really provides a clear picture to obtain the real building cost.
