Understanding Preliminary Building Agreements

preliminary building agreements

When embarking on the journey of building your dream custom home in Kelowna’s picturesque Okanagan region, one of the crucial steps in the process is establishing a Preliminary Building Agreement. At LUX Homes, your trusted custom home builder in Kelowna, we understand that this agreement lays the foundation for a successful and seamless custom home building experience. In this blog, we’ll provide you with an insight into what Preliminary Building Agreements are and why it’s a key aspect of our custom home building process.

What is a Preliminary Building Agreement?

A Preliminary Building Agreement is a comprehensive document that outlines the initial steps and expectations between you, the homeowner, and your Kelowna home builder. This agreement serves as the blueprint for the entire custom home construction project. It establishes a clear understanding of roles, responsibilities, timelines, and budgets.

Key Components of Preliminary Building Agreements

Project Scope and Objectives

The agreement defines the scope of the project, including the type of custom home you envision, design preferences, and any specific requirements you may have for your Okanagan dream home.

Budget and Payment Structure

It outlines the estimated project cost and the payment structure, including down payments, milestones, and final payments. This ensures transparency and financial clarity from the start.

Timeline and Milestones

A clear timeline is established, with key milestones identified for design, permitting, construction, and project completion. This helps keep the project on track and ensures that everyone is aligned on the project’s progress.

Design and Architectural Plans

If you have existing architectural plans, they are included in the agreement. If not, the agreement outlines the process for developing these plans in collaboration with our team of experts.

Project Management and Communication

The agreement defines the roles and responsibilities of both parties in terms of communication, decision-making, and project management. This ensures effective collaboration throughout the project.
