3. Produce a time-management schedule You’ll save considerable time by letting everyone involved in your kitchen installation know exactly when they are required. If you’re not experienced at time scheduling, ask each of the trades and suppliers how long they will need to perform their tasks and make a note in your time schedule. You should then let the trade who follows know their predecessor’s timing expectations so they can lock your job into their work program.
12 months outIf you’re building, now is the time to research building designers or architects.In my view, location is one of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing a designer or architect. Working with someone local will not only save you both time when it comes to meetings and site visits, but a local designer will have an understanding of the building regulations in your area.A prospective building designer or architect should be able to advise you on these key issues: Are there building and/or site regulations and restrictions that need approvals or appeals by town planning or your local council, such as environmental, fire or flood overlays? If you’re looking at off-grid options, what will work best on your type of block?Are there current restrictions or regulations in your area regarding off-grid or your other options?Does your site have any classifications or easements that you need to be aware of?
