Is construction of your Utah outdoor living project taking longer than you anticipated? Whether you are in the midst of construction or still in the preparation phase, we want you to be well informed of the complications of creating an accurate construction schedule in Park City & Salt Lake. From coordinating with an extensive list of humans involved in the process (suppliers, HOAs, inspectors, and contractors) to unforeseen issues such as weather, the large variety of factors in the outdoor construction schedule makes it important to be flexible. We promise the result will have been worth your patience.
The Human Factor
From material suppliers all the way to the contractors that put everything together, there are a lot of hands in the outdoor construction pot. Along the way, if any human errors or schedule interruptions occur, it can result in a delay. For instance, if an HOA board member who handles approvals has the flu for a week that can slow things down. If a supplier has a mistake in their shipment, that can slow things down. And if one or two delays occur early in the process it can alter the schedule of the contractors who may have other projects, vacations or plans which could lead to further delays. While we do our best to coordinate our crews in a flexible manner for these unknowns, we also can’t have too much flex in their schedule, or they’ll have days when they are twiddling their thumbs. While large delays are rare, they can happen, we ask for your patience and empathy if that does happen on your project.
Weather, Weather, Weather
I don’t have to tell you about how fast the weather changes here in the Salt Lake and Park City area. If you don’t like the weather right now, wait five minutes. Weather delays can be the most difficult to deal with when it comes to outdoor construction. There is nothing anyone can do about them, and they are impossible to predict. If your project is stalled due to rainy or snowy weather, please know that we will be back on the job as quickly as possible. The safety of our crew and the quality of your project are our number one priorities in these instances.
At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we work diligently to plan for unforeseen delays. We also schedule our crews accordingly so that if possible, while we are waiting on an inspection for one part of your structure they can be completing another section. We hope that our estimated plan for completion will be as accurate as possible, but ask you to prepare for potential delays that are out of our control. In return, we ask that you inform us of your schedule. If you have an event coming up that you want your space ready for, please notify us as early in the process as possible. We’ll do our best to make it happen.
