  • Change orders: Changes to the scope of the project after the contract has been finalized. Change orders are usually owner-generated scope additions (for example, while we are remodeling your kitchen, you decide you want us to remodel your bathroom as well). Occasionally, change orders can also be the necessary result of unforeseen conditions (for example, we discover termites requiring pest remediation). Change orders increase the project budget. 

  • Project Scope: The work to be performed under our contract.

  • Budget: The cap on the amount of money that will be spent during the project. This cap is set in the contract. It may only be changed via a change order. Since we bill on a time and material basis, you keep any unspent portion of the budget.

  • Estimate: The estimated cost for a given scope of work. The estimate is done before the budget is finalized and the contract is signed. It is then updated after each design phase (schematic design, design development, and construction documents).

  • Substantial completion: Substantial completion is a milestone that is achieved after we have passed all required inspections and the work is sufficiently complete in accordance with the contract so that the owner can occupy or utilize the work for its intended purpose.

  • Punch list: The punch list records any deficiencies, items that need repair, incomplete tasks, or outstanding items that otherwise need to be addressed before final completion. Once the punch list items are identified and completed by PDB, the construction is complete.
