The Terris Lightfoot Contracting Ltd. (TLCL) renovation and construction process is designed to ensure a hassle-free service that guarantees your unconditional satisfaction. When you invite TLCL to take on your next project here is what you can expect:
Consultation in your home
A TLCL representative will meet with you in your home to discuss your renovation plans. We will analyze your project details and discuss the overall scope of the project you have in mind. If you do not yet have a complete set of drawings and a schedule of finishes for your project we can assist you with acquiring them.
Design and detail decisions
At TLCL we are committed to an efficient and timely execution of your renovation project. In order to ensure this we recommend consulting a reputable designer and architect to guide you through the design and detail of your project. Choosing colours, fixtures, trim, hardware and thinking through and refining your plans with these professionals will ensure an efficient and accurate outcome of the overall project.
TLCL is typically involved at the very beginning of this process and offer our assistance and consultation throughout the planning and design stage of the project. We are involved in pre-planning meetings and site meetings with the designers, architects and owners and make recommendations regarding the structural details and possible options based on your budgetary requirements.
Initial proposal based on an analysis of your requirements
After a careful analysis of the proposed renovation including the site, drawings, schedules and specifications we will provide you with a preliminary budgetary proposal.
Detailed contract and proposal acceptance
Following review and approval of our proposal, a detailed contract will be drawn up. When the contract is finalized we will begin ordering materials, and schedule the various trades that are to be involved with the project. We also provide a detailed work schedule outlining targeted start and finish dates.
Before the project construction begins, we will perform a walk-through of the site layout with you. Our team will go over the plans again and explain what will happen during the renovation process.
We begin work as soon as we receive the building permits and construction approval. We will always follow up with your permit approval status, in order to keep to our schedule.
Organized construction and seamless execution
TLCL prides itself in running a clean, well organized operation. Whether your project involves a simple change in layout, demolition or construction, the site is inspected by municipal authorities and closely supervised by us. We ensure that the site is clean and organized daily. We strive to maintain our schedule and to perform our work in an unobtrusive manner. We organize regular client meetings and are always on hand to address any questions and concerns you may have during the construction process. Our team maintains a strict work schedule to ensure work is completed on time and on budget.
Change Work Orders
Any changes to the original scope of the project either by necessity or request will be appended to the original project budget by way of a Change Work Order document. This document, to be approved by you outlines any additional work or purchases required and allows for the efficient tracking of the changes that have been made to the original budget.
TLCL generate progress claims on a bi-weekly basis. Each progress claim contains a detailed breakdown of all labour, materials, and sub trade costs. Payment is due upon receipt of progress claim.
Client inspection and completion
Upon completion of the project, we will ask you to perform your own inspection and list any item that you feel requires attention. We attend to all deficiency items immediately.
