Project Management

Project Schedule

Our project management systems and practices are centered around a fully integrated project schedule. One that prioritizes onsite productivity and has the built-in flexibility to deal with unforeseen changes. Now rarely does anything go as planned, which is why our system allows for daily fallback tasks. We know that keeping things rolling is the best way to ensure our projects stay on time and within budget. Our project schedule is online for you to view at any time. It has a percentage of completion feature for every project task so you can see how things are progressing. We also provide weekly job logs and site pictures describing all completed work.

Project Budget

The budgeting aspect of any project is crucial to its success. Prudent budget management allows for financially informed decision-making throughout your project. All our client’s project budgets have online access, maintaining the transparency you expect by showing all project financials, without confusing you about the bottom line. We provide weekly breakdowns detailing all project costs for that period. Then, our online budget compiles that information into an easy-to-understand interactive spreadsheet, showing you what has been spent and what is still left to spend for every scheduled work item. Again this is all available to you online at any time and from any device.

Project selections are a big part of any of our builds, and we have you covered here. First, our online system allows a centralized communication hub for each line item of your project’s budget. Second, all our selection correspondence is organized and easily referenced when needed. Third, we set due dates for each selection decision you need to make. That way, you know how much time you have to decide on each item. This helps take the pressure off of making selections for your dream home. Finally, our selection hub is a great tool to quickly pick any finishings for your home.

"We had a great experience working with Chris at Woodsmith Construction. He is honest, transparent, realistic, easy to get in touch with and makes himself available to his clients whenever they need him. I would gladly recommend Woodsmith Construction to anyone doing a renovation as Chris made a complicated process a positive experience."

“Woodsmith Construction Inc. recently completed a full-home renovation on our place, including underpinning and adding a third floor. We couldn’t be happier with the results and the level of service that we received from Chris and his entire team. Chris is an absolute professional who is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated to his craft and was exceptionally responsive at all points in the project to all of our questions and concerns. For us, this timely communication provided a level of comfort and assurance – I cannot imagine doing a project of this scale without it! During the project, the worksite was kept so clean – our neighbours consistently commented on how great and respectful the team was. We were able to complete a huge project with very little tension and to me, that speaks volumes about the manner in which the project was carried out. In terms of the results, we are thrilled. The workmanship, detail and solid construction of our home are all that we hoped for. This workmanship and level of service continued through the final stages of the project, when we were completing the finishing touches. Chris ensured that every small detail was arranged for and completed. Obviously, we highly recommend Woodsmith Construction and are grateful to Chris and his team for the amazing work, professionalism and service they provided.”

“The Woodsmith team did a phenomenal job of rebuilding our house to match our dream on-time and within our budget. Chris (the owner) was always accessible, open to ideas and patient with questions. This made all the difference for us. He understands that a job of this scale is something that an owner will likely only do once, and he offered great advice and put all our fears at ease. We constantly knew exactly how we were tracking to our budget (to the dollar) and our job site was clean and orderly at all times (which our neighbours very much appreciated). We were nervous about our year-long adventure in renos (we’ve all heard horror stories), but Chris helped us spread out decisions over time and provided clear options for any challenges his team encountered, making that year a surprisingly pleasant one. All of the work was top-quality and has garnered unsolicited positive comments from anyone who sees our home (including other contractors working in our neighbourhood). I have no problem recommending Woodsmith; you will be in very good hands.”

"We were very pleased with the results of our renovation project completed by Chris and his team at Woodsmith Construction. As well as a great end-product, Chris provided excellent customer communication services throughout the whole process that were greatly appreciated! We would have no hesitation in recommending Woodsmith Construction and in fact have already booked them for a second project."

"Woodsmith construction just completed a gut job and garage addition for my husband and I and it was the best experience I could have hoped for especially given all the renovation horror stories we have heard. They were so professional, helpful, diligent and responsive and the quality of the renovation was first class. I would recommend anyone to hire Woodsmith construction for all their needs whether it is a renovation or a new build. We could not be happier with the outcome and our newly renovated home"
