Overview: The #1 Project Problem


The #1 problem is projects going over time and over budget.

On a daily basis, we see people moving projects into the design phase before the research has been completed. This is like a doctor starting surgery without a diagnosis, or like trying to build a house on an unstable foundation.

This is why we created our Project Planning Pack. It provides a clear and easy process to move you through the research phase of your project.

If you follow this guide, you will reduce the risk of your project going over time and over budget, and you will improve your project’s design.

Our guide includes:

  • Renovation Project Roadmap. An outline of the six phases of any renovation project.
  • Directory of Experts. A directory of experts who can help you at each stage of your renovation process.
  • Project Cost Estimator. A simple do-it-yourself worksheet to estimate the cost of your building project.
  • FAQs and SAQs. Frequently-asked questions and should-ask questions about working with an architect.
  • Myth vs. Reality. Some hidden things that architects do to guide your project to completion.
  • How to Create a Design Brief. Seven questions that will help you create a design brief to share with your shortlisted architects.
  • Readiness Slider. Gauge how ready you are to move to the design phase of your project.
