Pre Build or Refurbishment Checklist

Pre Build or Refurbishment Checklist

Before contractors start work its a good idea to make a list of anything that you want keeping from the property. This is a pre build or refurbishment checklist and it could save you money in the long run. Very often there are old agricultural implements, barrels, pieces of furniture, stone troughs and even ox carts. Removal from the site and storage of the items will be your responsibility.

Hand carved hundreds of years ago these stone troughs make very good planters

Pre Build or Refurbishment Checklist

When excavations start there is often unwanted earth and stone. Deep foundations and trenches will often result in earth left over. Do you want it piled up for later use or removed. Be aware there may be a lot of it. Choose a place to pile it that is well away from the work site and you boundary walls. Occasionally it is necessary to remove trees to gain safe access for machines or scaffolding. You will be informed which trees these are. Some trees particularly in the winter can be relocated. This will be done at extra cost and needs to be carried out fairly quickly. Do you have a new location in mind before construction work starts. Landscaping is not included in most quotations. Builders can carry out additional earth moving, normally at the time that they have machines on site Access to your construction/refurbishment site. A building site is a dangerous place for the uninitiated. Although you are able to walk around the property at your own risk when workers are not there. Great care should be taken as there are often un seen trenches, nails sticking up through wood, scaffolding and so on. If there are specific things to be discussed call an “on-site meeting” with your architect, builder or subcontractors. Don’t just turn up out of the blue as there may be heavy or technical work under way which needs the contribution of your builder or foreman. You may want to help the builders by lending a hand even if its just laboring. This is rarely a good idea. You may not be physically fit or strong enough and able to keep up with the other workers. If you don’t speak Portuguese its going to be hard to take instruction or heed safety warnings. Your builder is only insured for accidents to workers that he employs. Finally working hard in the heat is something that has to be experienced to be understood. Our advice is to Think very carefully about getting involved physicaly. Both water and electrical supplies should be connected prior to work commencing.
