Congratulations! Your business has officially outgrown its current facility, and it’s time to expand! You’ve raised the capital you need, you’ve drawn up the blueprints, and all that’s left to do is break ground.

Whether it’s new construction, or adding onto or upgrading an existing building, it’s important to make sure that the job is done correctly.You need to be able to continue to grow your business in a top-notch facility that you and your customers deserve.

Here are a few things to consider before you get started:

1 Prepare for the future. Hopefully, this won’t be the last time that you expand, and making a long-term plan will help you expedite all future phases of development. Don’t be afraid to make ambitious plans, but be realistic about what you can afford now, as well as in the future.

2 Don’t cut corners with substandard materials. It’s important to always know the difference between inexpensive and cheap. This doesn’t mean that you have to always purchase the costliest hardware and building materials on the market, but the general rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for.

3 Don’t cut corners with contractors. You should go into any project with a reasonable idea of the costs for any job that you intend to contract out. You should also be wary of a bid that comes in substantially below other estimates. What’s not included in that low bid? Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
