By following industry best practices and leveraging our expertise, we ensure your project progresses smoothly, maintaining quality and adherence to timelines. Lets dive into our step by step guide to everything you need to know about a proper construction project workflow: Step 1: Pre-Construction 1. Client Intake (initial conversation): We first begin by scheduling a conversation with you, either over the phone or in person, to complete our "Client Intake" form. This crucial step allows us to understand your needs and project details while you learn about our team and services. Together, we assess whether moving forward is a good fit. Our primary goal is to clarify key considerations and provide a rough, realistic budget, empowering you to make informed decisions about your project's feasibility. Benefit to you: This initial meeting ensures a mutual understanding and helps you make confident, informed choices from the start. 2. Client Walkthrough: If it makes sense to proceed, we schedule an in-person "Client Walkthrough" and provide materials for you to review.

Benefit to you:  This step ensures accurate estimates and efficient planning by involving the right experts early on. 5. Estimate Review: After consulting with subcontractors and suppliers, we finalize the estimate and review it with you. If accepted, we create a detailed visual schedule/Gantt chart to align everyone on the construction plan. We also send preliminary agreements to subcontractors for scope review. Benefit to you:  This process ensures transparency and coordination, leading to a smoother construction experience. 6. Agreement Review: After sending the agreement, we meet with you to discuss its details, ensuring full transparency and clear expectations. The agreement includes essential elements such as General Liability Insurance, bonding, Schedule of Values, and licensing. Once signed, we set a start date, update the schedule, and arrange crews. Benefit to you:  This thorough review ensures clarity and confidence in the project's terms, leading to a well-coordinated and protected construction process. 7. Down Deposit: We send a formal invoice and await your deposit payment.This deposit percentage will vary depending on unique project terms.  Purchases and scheduling will not commence until the deposit is received. Benefit to you: This ensures financial commitment and readiness before starting the project, guaranteeing efficient use of resources and timely progress. 8. Attain Subcontractor agreements: We receive signed agreements from all subcontractors involved in the project, confirming the scope and timeline are accurate and all parties have clear, aligned expectations. Benefit to you:  This step secures commitment from subcontractors and guarantees everyone is on the same page 9. Permitting (if needed): If permitting is required, we send a Permitting Proposal and submit the necessary documents via Louisiana One Stop. Permit obligations may vary based on project elements and location, and this stage may occur pre-agreement. Benefit to you:  This step handles all necessary legal approvals, helping to avoid delays and ensuring your project adheres to all regulations. 10. Order Materials: At this point, we will begin ordering materials. We monitor shipping and coordinate safe, timely delivery, while also securing contracts with suppliers to ensure accountability for any avoidable delays. Benefit to you:  This process ensures materials arrive on time, minimizing delays and keeping the project on schedule. 11. Set Weekly Meeting Schedule: Before construction commences, we will establish a specific time and date once a week to meet with you. During these meetings, we'll provide regular updates on our progress and discuss any new developments. This ensures you're always in the loop and gives us dedicated time to address your concerns. Benefit to you: These meetings keep you informed and involved throughout the process, while allowing you to remain hands-off. 12. Team Coordination Meeting: Before starting construction, we will meet with our team to go over project expectations, safety guidelines, and logistical details. Benefit to you: : This promotes  a safe and efficient work environment and fosters clear communication among our team members. Step 2: Construction Commencement 13.

That's why we meticulously secure entry points and maintain vigilance to safeguard your property, ensuring peace of mind throughout the construction journey. 17. Change Order: Changes are expected and welcomed during construction, whether due to unforeseen variables or client selections. However, it's important to understand that some changes may lead to work suspension or delays, increased project duration, additional expenses, and potential effects on other work. Change orders provide a means for paying for project elements not included in the original scope. All change requests must be formally signed by owner before commencing. Benefit to you: Change orders allow for flexibility while ensuring transparency, fair pricing, and efficient project management 18. Punchlist: After completing the main scope of the project, we'll arrange an on-site meeting with you to create a punch list. This list allows you to request corrections for any obvious and reasonable imperfections, in accordance with the latest standards of the National Association of Home Builder's "Residential Construction Performance Guidelines." .

Industry Insight: AI and Construction: We're exploring how AI is starting to influence the construction industry. AI is being used for practical applications such as automated project scheduling and optimizing material usage to reduce waste. Fun Fact: Some companies are even developing AI-powered hard hats that can warn construction workers of potential hazards! Stay tuned for more detailed insights in our next edition. Monthly Tip #1: Check for post-tension wiring. Before undertaking renovations involving slab work, always check for post-tension wiring, especially in homes built around or after 1980. Drilling into these slabs without verifying post tension presence can be dangerous and expensive. Always hire a qualified professional to locate and mark any post-tension cables before starting renovations. Monthly Tip #2: Renovating more than 50% of your building's value? A renovation exceeding 50% of your home value requires an updated elevation certificate that shows you are above the required elevation for your area. If you are not, you will either need to elevate your house, acquire an elevation waiver, or decrease your construction scope to be under 50% of the building value. The best way to acquire this certificate is to higher a professional land surveyor. Did You Know? Plaza Tower: Though no longer the tallest building in New Orleans, the Plaza Tower remains a fascinating landmark. Built in the 1960s, the extensive use of asbestos for fireproofing during construction makes demolition incredibly expensive. Proposals for the future of the Plaza Tower include converting it into mixed-use space with apartments, a hotel, and commercial areas. Shell Foundations: A testament to New Orleans' long history of adaptation, the  Native American practice of using shells to stabilize soil  is still visible in some parts of the city today! Keep an eye out for them as you walk around – a hidden piece of history beneath your feet! We Want to Hear from You! Do you have any topics you want us to cover? Let us know what interests you, and check out our brand new website for more updates! Thank You For Reading! Thank you for taking the time to read our first newsletter. We hope you enjoyed the updates and insights. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook/Instagram/LinkedIn @rellestaterenovations to stay connected with all things Rellestate Renovations!

  • Elevate Your Space: The Science of Exterior Renovations

    Your home's exterior is its first impression – a reflection of your style, personality, and attention to detail. Exterior renovations not only enhance curb appeal but also contribute to the overall value, durability, and functionality of your property. In this blog post, we'll embark on a journey through the world of exterior renovations, exploring trends, tips, and transformative ideas to elevate your outdoor space. The Power of Curb Appeal: Curb appeal is not just a real estate buzzword; it's a fundamental aspect of exterior renovations. From a fresh coat of paint to well-maintained landscaping, the visual appeal of your home's exterior sets the tone for what awaits inside. Consider the impact of a well-designed entrance, upgraded lighting fixtures, and a thoughtfully landscaped front yard in creating an inviting ambiance. Outdoor Living Spaces: The concept of outdoor living has evolved beyond traditional patios and decks. Modern exterior renovations often include the creation of functional and stylish outdoor living spaces. This might involve adding a pergola for shade, a fire pit for cozy evenings, or even an outdoor kitchen for al fresco dining. These spaces extend your home's usable square footage and provide a retreat for relaxation and entertainment. Sustainable Landscaping: Sustainable and eco-friendly landscaping practices are gaining popularity in exterior renovations. From drought-resistant plants to rainwater harvesting systems, homeowners are increasingly incorporating environmentally conscious elements into their outdoor spaces. This not only reduces the ecological footprint but also contributes to a more resilient and low-maintenance landscape. Energy-Efficient Upgrades: Exterior renovations can be an opportunity to improve your home's energy efficiency. Upgrading windows, doors, and insulation not only enhances the aesthetics but also contributes to reduced energy bills and a more comfortable living environment. Consider the latest in energy-efficient materials and technologies to maximize the return on your investment. Modernizing with Materials: The choice of materials plays a pivotal role in exterior renovations. Sleek, durable, and low-maintenance materials, such as fiber cement siding, composite decking, and metal roofing, are becoming popular choices. These materials not only provide a contemporary aesthetic but also ensure long-lasting performance against the elements. Statement Entrances: Your front door is a focal point of your home's exterior. Make a statement with a bold, unique front door design that complements the architectural style of your house. Consider incorporating elements like sidelights, transoms, or custom hardware to add character and personality to your entrance. Lighting and Security: Exterior lighting serves both aesthetic and practical purposes. Invest in well-designed outdoor lighting to highlight architectural features, illuminate pathways, and enhance security. Smart lighting systems with motion sensors and programmable controls add an extra layer of convenience and energy efficiency.
