Winter is approaching and soon it will be cold and much time will be spent inside. Now is a great time to start planning those small winter projects that need to be tackled in your facility. Small modifications and improvements not only add value to your facility, but they also build morale and a better environment for workers and occupants. However, any project, even small ones need a plan. Below are a few examples of projects and tips to help you plan and improve your facility this winter.
Small Winter Projects
Some examples of some small winter projects that you could accomplish in the next few months include installation of new flooring, removing a wall, cutting a new doorway, remodeling an office or classroom, converting a storage room to office space, new interior paint and modifying cubicle space. These small projects can help improve the look and functionality of your facility, add value and be completed within a few months with minor disruption to daily operations. The occupants of your facility will most likely appreciate the results.
Planning for Small Projects This Winter
Small projects still need a detailed plan of action, scope of work, timeframe and a budget. A reputable contractor will be able to work with you to compose a plan for your project to ensure it is completed to your satisfaction. To help you get started, be sure to have the following components ready before you meet with your contractor:
- Provide a comprehensive list and description of work to be completed
- Organize the list of project priorities – needs/wants/wishes
- Designate a single point of contact for the duration of the project
- List a desired schedule for your project
- Define the budget for your project
- List desired outcome of work to be competed
Even small projects can be overwhelming to plan. However, having the above list prepared will help you and the contractor decide the best plan and process to complete the project within a timely manner and within budget.
