When making big life decisions, we often are forced to navigate industries which we have little to no experience in. This is especially true for the average client of a construction management company. With so many moving facets and members of a construction project management team, it can make anyone’s head spin!
With Miller Architects & Builders, rest assured you’ll never feel lost as a client when working with our construction project management team; accurate communication is paramount to us. However, preparation often helps to ease anxiety, which is why we explain how to prepare for your first consultation below.
Do Your Homework
Responsible construction management companies like Miller will always guide you through the consulting process. However, knowing a bit of industry lingo will help relax you before your first official appointment with the commercial construction company. There are countless lists of common construction terms from reputable sources online; even skimming over these terms will help you understand what you’re in for and ease your worries.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you might even educate yourself on all the different types of work that go into a construction project. The architectural design process is quite fascinating, and it can definitely broaden your horizons to learn new things.
Don’t worry if you don’t have time to do this; our team will help you through anything you don’t understand. But if your nerves get bad before the appointment, it never hurts to educate yourself.
Make a List of Wants and Needs
Deciding exactly what you want can eliminate a majority of the unknowns that come with construction—especially when it comes to architectural design. What features do you absolutely need in your new building? What kinds of things would you like, but could live without? What features can you absolutely not abide by? Answering these questions before your appointment can soothe much of your anxiety.
Even if you’re unsure about your needs and wants, this shakiness can serve as a talking point between you and your commercial contracting business. And rest assured that with Miller, we’ll always help you make the right decision.
