Fortunately, WORKS has so many experts right on our team—including carpenters, insulation installers, drywallers, flooring experts and painters—that coordination has become second nature to us.

Take the master bathroom renovation that WORKS handled in Beverly, Massachusetts. The team’s first job was to protect the rest of the house and its furniture from dust and debris and then remove or demolish everything in the bathroom from floor to ceiling. After the WORKS team demoed the room down to studs and floor boards, they cleared the room of tools and debris so that our carpenter could began building up the framework again. For example, there was a new tray ceiling to frame and a heavier tub to support.

When a Job Goes Wrong

For his own job to go smoothly, the carpenter had to be aware of the needs of the plumber, the electrician, the insulation installer, the drywaller and the painter. Take, for example, the room’s lights. Let’s say that the carpenter’s framing limited the places where the plumber could set a pipe. So the plumber, without consulting anyone, places the pipe across the joist where the lights should be hung. Then the electrician shows up. Now the electrician has to move the lights to the wrong place or demand that the plumber move the pipe—so either the layout of the bathroom is ruined or the budget. With WORKS, that scenario would never happen.

When a Job Goes Absolutely Right

The master bathroom renovation in Beverly, Massachusetts, is an example of everything going right. In this case, let’s talk about the new tub. First the WORKS project manager consulted with the homeowners about the tub and found that it weighed more than the old tub. Therefore, the WORKS carpenter strengthened the floor joist that would be under the tub, to ensure proper support. While the carpenter was working, the plumber showed up for a briefing on what he needed to do and to make sure the preparations met his needs.

When the plumber finished his job, the WORKS team went on to installing, insulation, subfloor and flooring and setting the tub right where it belonged. That’s coordination and that’s just one example of what a general contractor does—so that your renovation project moves smoothly from start to finish, on time, on budget and to your highest satisfaction.
