Construction team

"Building an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) typically requires a team of professionals to manage the various stages of construction. This can include:
  1. General contractor: Responsible for overseeing the overall construction process and coordinating with the other sub-contractors.
  2. Architect or designer: Helps with the design and planning of the ADU. (see our Design Team Page)
  3. Carpenter: Builds the structure of the ADU, including walls, roofs, and decks.
  4. Plumber: Installs the plumbing system, including water and sewer lines.
  5. Electrician: Installs the electrical system, including wiring, lights, and outlets.
  6. HVAC technician: Installs and maintains the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.
  7. Landscaper: Creates the landscaping design and installs the necessary features.

It is important to verify that each contractor involved in the construction of your ADU is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. This helps to ensure that the work is performed to industry standards, and provides protection for both the owner and the contractors in the event of any accidents or incidents during the construction process.
A certified and licensed contractor has met the minimum training and experience requirements, and has passed exams, to demonstrate their competence in their field. Being bonded means that the contractor has obtained a performance bond, which provides financial protection to the owner in the event that the contractor fails to complete the project as agreed. And being insured protects both the owner and the contractor in the event of any accidents or incidents that occur on the job site.
By taking the time to verify the credentials of each contractor involved in the construction of your ADU, you can help to ensure the success of your project and avoid any potential problems."

bonded & insured

General Liability Insurance is a type of insurance coverage that licensed contractors typically carry to protect against financial loss in the event of a third-party claim or lawsuit. This insurance covers damages or injury to property or people that may occur during the course of the contractor's work. For example, if a customer slips and falls on a job site, the General Liability Insurance would provide financial protection for the contractor.

A BOND in construction is a type of financial guarantee that a contractor provides to the owner. It provides assurance that the contractor will complete the project according to the agreed-upon terms and conditions, and covers any financial losses the owner may incur if the contractor fails to do so.
The bond essentially acts as a type of insurance for the owner, protecting their investment in the project. If the contractor fails to fulfill their obligations, the owner can make a claim against the bond to recover any losses.
In summary, both General Liability Insurance and bonds play important roles in the construction process by providing financial protection for both the contractor and the owner."
