People take on renovations, additions and builds for 3 main reasons- to repurpose and reformat the existing space, to enlarge or get more space or to refresh and update what they have, and sometimes a combination of all 3. Full Spectrum Construction leads the way to take what you have envisioned and turns it into reality. Regardless of what stage you are in from initial concept to drawings completed and ready to build we can provide what is needed to get your project across the finish line and get you enjoying the fruits of your labour. With our process and proven experience, we make this usually stressful and exhausting experience into an exciting experience you can look at with pride and enthusiasm. Whether renovation, addition or complete buildout we have you covered.
If you have purchased an older home or have one already that just needs a little facelift or major renovation, we have you covered. Kitchens, baths, basements and whole home renovations, we can take you from eyesore to eye-catching. Whatever the extent of your home renovation Full Spectrum Construction can provide all the services required to transform your old home into a new home with finishes and upgrades that meets your needs.
Need more space? Large or small addition we can make that happen! Whether you have drawings in hand or just an idea in your head we get it across the finish line. From a living room extension to second story buildup or adding a second unit onto the existing building we have the knowledge and skills to take the unknown and turn it into the happy and stress-free process it should be. Check out our Additions Estimator to get an idea on your build budget.
If you have a new plan for your office, need to improve your space or don’t like the present look anymore, give us a call! Creativity and innovation are at the heart of the company philosophy. This includes designers who promote forward thinking on all renovation aspects and develop innovative ideas for even greater enjoyment and comfort. From office renovations to retail outlets to washroom renovations we coordinate every aspect of the renovation process including design, plumbing, electrical and lighting, framing and installation of finishes to reduce downtime and increase efficiency and profitability.
Our design-build process means you are working with the same group of people from the initial design and planning all the way through to final completion, there is no risk of misunderstandings or conflicts moving from the design phase to construction phase. Design-build keeps your budget in mind while the collaboration of everyone under one company increases efficiency and reduces project delivery timelines. This results in a better project delivery and an easier project for everyone involved. From addition to knock down and rebuild this approach will pay dividends in the end.
Whether you have drawings in hand or just a concept of what you want, we’ll start with what you have. Depending on what you would like done, we may send over an initial pre-meeting questionnaire to gather some information about the project. We set an initial meeting to see what is existing and gather as much information about the project as we can- drawings are great but they seldom tell the full story. From there we provide a budget or estimate based on actual rates we know from experience, supplier costs and subcontractor costs.
Congratulations! From here on, you are our valued and prioritized client. We design your dream or, if you have done this already, we go over the drawings and ensure you are getting exactly what you want out of your project. You may not speak architect drawings but we certainly do, and take the time to make sure you understand it. We set out the project delivery schedule and organize for the project so we can hit the ground running. We answer any question and handle all items to your satisfaction from this point forward from start date to what tile you like, we make it happen!
This is where we transform from concept to reality and it starts from the ground up.
If needed, we’ll begin excavating then we’ll pour the foundation and do the plumbing ground work. Then the framing process begins. Framing can be the longest step in the construction process. We use the time it takes to frame as an opportunity to select the interior finishes. At this time, you’ll finalize the interior and exterior finishes in your home including:
General Interior Finishes
- Hardwood flooring
- Shower style
- Cabinetry and countertops
After we finish framing and station the windows and doors, the rough-ins stage begins. Plumbing, HVAC, security systems and electrical work are roughed in.
During this phase we complete the roof and exterior finishes and may begin landscaping depending upon the weather. After the all of the rough-ins are finished, insulation is installed and the sheet rock is hung after the home passes inspection at the required times throughout.
Internal transformation (the fun part)
Now, your selections will be installed, transforming the house from a construction site to a home.
- We start with hard surface flooring- tile and hardwood.
- Next the cabinet installation and trim work begins.
- We’ll finish the tile showers while the trim work is underway.
- Countertops are templated, and lighting is installed.
- Painters arrive to give colour to your rooms.
- Once the painting is complete and dry, the finish carpentry is done.
- Last but not least, we’ll add the finishing touches- from doorknobs to towel holders.
Finally, the house is swept, cleaned, and a final walkthrough is completed. After closing and when everything meets your expectations, you’re free and clear to move in.
