3.0 Construction Phase
The Construction Phase includes the following steps that reflect the order with which a Centre should proceed with the design work:
3.1 Bidding: securing bids from different contractors based on the construction documentation. This process could be one of project management whereby the construction project manager is selected in advance who then oversees the bidding of all sub-contracts and overseeing the construction process.
3.2 Construction: renovating or constructing new space according the information contained in the construction documentation. This step includes securing all required building permits and other formal applicable government requirements.
3.3 Occupancy: this includes ensuring the final work is complete before taking occupancy of the proposed renovated / constructed spaces. This step includes also the costs of moving into new / renovated space.
