For your building to be as per your wish, one needs to do some consideration even before hiring a contractor so as to ensure that once the contractor is on site no time is wasted.

As a way of making sure that your projections are right one may need to engage on experts who will help like a builder in order to make the right estimates about completion time of the said project, and an architect who will help with the approximated price for the raw materials.
Having a contractor who clearly understands your objectives is the next major thing after making sure that you have the other considerations taken care of in advance, since he will ensure that he works as per your expectations. A licensed contractor is a very first point one should consider, this way it will prove whether the said contractor adheres to the laws of the land and will also add credibility to his work.
