Heathwood's construction process
The Basic Stages Of Construction
Materials to build your new home are ordered well in advance, therefore making last minute changes can be difficult and expensive. Construction coordination involves numerous parties and even a day’s delay can result in major scheduling problems.
While there have been advances and innovations in the home building industry, the process has remained the same, with what is essentially a "hand-built" product. Overall, the process of building a new home generally takes 6 - 8 months. As a Homeowner, you should be aware of the various stages. Décor and interior finishes selections must be made in a timely manner thus ensuring no delays for our home-building crews.
Stage 1 - Excavation, Foundation and Underground Service
Building any home requires extensive coordination between site superintendents, contracted trades, municipal employees, consulting engineers and legal offices. Your most crucial contribution to this collaborative effort is your Décor Appointment at the Décor Store.
As soon as you finish your appointment and sign your colour chart, all finishes and customized selections are immediately processed, materials are ordered and the different trades are notified.
Your Safety Is Our Top Priority
We know how tempting it might be to enter the building site to view the construction progress on your new home and see the colour selections you have made.
A construction site is a hazardous place for those without the proper safety attire or experience on the worksite and any such entry is strictly prohibited unless supervised by our Service Representative or construction staff.
If you do wish to book a walk-through of your home while under construction (prior to drywall), we suggest the following steps:
A. Contact your Sales Representative to request a Walk-Through Appointment.
At your Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI), you’ll have plenty of time to view your entire home in detail with the help of a Heron Service Representative.
* No one under the age of 16 is allowed on site at any time, regardless of safety equipment. Only the individuals listed on the offer will be allowed to enter the property unless waived as per Tarion.
