How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Are you planning a subdivision?

Creating a subdivision in a piece of land is a great way to maximise the potential of the land. Instead of selling it as bare land or building one property on the land, you can create multiple parcels on the property and sell them individually. While dividing the land into lots in this way can be lucrative, it is not without its problems. Dividing the land to create saleable lots can be complex, as many things must be considered to make the best use of the land. Here are three things that you must bear in mind when creating a subdivision.

Start the process right

When planning a development, you must establish the subdivision boundaries at the start of the process. If you try to set or alter the boundaries once some of the infrastructure is in place or once building work has begun, you may find that it becomes impossible to provide adequate access to each lot or that you cannot run the utility supply lines where they need to go without expensive remedial work. It is much better to have an initial sketch that shows the location of each lot and how the utility provision will work from the start. You can modify this as your plans develop, but by starting right, you can be confident that everything you need is included.

Have set design standards

Sometimes, with a subdivision, things can be completed haphazardly, with each lot looking different from all of the others. The result of such a lack of planning can often be overcrowded spaces or underused gaps between properties. When setting out the plans for your subdivision, you will need to think about not just what the buildings will look like and where they should be situated on the lots, but also how people and traffic will move between the lots and access the main road. To create the best subdivisions, you will also have to bear in mind your desired balance between open public spaces and buildings.

Consider natural hazard

Along with deciding how many separate lots you want on your property, you will need to think about any natural hazards you have on your land. Are you located on a floodplain, or are there any other considerations that could limit the use of the land. Are there risks that can be mitigated by careful planning and design? Taking into account the location of any existing hazards and incorporating them into your design will let you make the most of your subdivision.
