What to Know Before Starting Your Condo Renovation

BOWA’s Experts Share Insight on Executing a Successful Condo Renovation

When it comes to condo renovations, many factors can complicate the remodeling process if not properly planned for. Thankfully, BOWA’s experienced Condo Team understands the unique challenges and intricacies of executing a successful condo renovation and has the expertise to ensure your project is completed smoothly and efficiently.

Navigating Building Regulations

Every condo building operates under a unique set of rules and regulations that can significantly impact your renovation project. Hidden building fees and strict regulations are just a few of the factors that can complicate the process. Our condo experts are well-versed in these intricacies and know how to integrate them into your budget and timeline from the very start. In fact, our team has experience working in more than 50 of the area’s premier buildings and can apply this insight and these relationships to effectively manage your project from start to finish.

Strategic Scheduling and Coordination

Timing is everything in condo renovations. Unlike single family home renovations, condos often have quiet hours in the mornings and evenings, and specific delivery time restrictions. Our condo experts excel in strategic scheduling and coordination, ensuring that all aspects of your renovation are meticulously planned. We handle the ordering and scheduling of deliveries to avoid delays, ensuring materials and subcontractors are on-site precisely when needed. This level of coordination minimizes disruptions and keeps your project on track.

Minimizing Disruption

Renovating a condo while living in it can be challenging. Moving out during the renovation can significantly reduce time and avoid unnecessary delays. By vacating the project, our team can work more efficiently, allowing tasks like plumbing installations to be completed in one go. This approach not only speeds up the process but also saves you money by reducing the number of visits required for various trades.

Mastering the Permitting Process

Obtaining permits and approvals can be one of the most challenging aspects of a condo renovation. The permitting process is often lengthy and can be complicated by the need to coordinate with building managers and adhere to condo board regulations. BOWA’s extensive knowledge of these procedures ensures that we can navigate the permitting process with ease, preventing delays and ensuring your renovation stays on schedule.

Specialized Knowledge and Comprehensive Management

Condo renovations come with unique challenges, such as immobile concrete ceilings and floors, intricate piping systems, and interconnected utilities. At BOWA, our team includes specialized experts, like full-time onsite condo Project Managers and building scientist Doug Horgan, who ensure we have the right plans in place and can achieve results that less experienced teams could not. Our surgical demolition approach minimizes the impact on neighbors and the building’s systems.
