DrCliffAuD VLOG 007 | Building Permits and Construction Schedule


– Hey guys, welcome back to
the Doctor Cliff AuD vlog. This is vlog number seven
and it is an exciting one. Now, if you’ve missed
some of the other blogs, you can always go back on the
channel and check those out, but what I’m talking about today is we finally got our permits. We started the permitting process at the beginning of November and we are now mid-February 2020, and we just got all of the revisions back and approved by the city, so we actually had our general contractor and all the subcontractors come out here and meet this past
Friday, today is a Sunday, and I’m gonna share with
you basically the schedule that they have built out, and I have that schedule right here. So I’m just gonna get right to it. I’ll try to put a calendar
up as an overlay here. Alright so the schedule
starts out on Wednesday, which is February 19th and it begins with the plumbing and the HVAC guys coming out here to start their work. On Thursday, the 20th, plumbing, HVAC, and then framing is actually
gonna start in here. And then on Friday, we have
plumbing, HVAC, framing, and then roof deck installation
is starting to go in. So that’s the first week. Let’s go into the second
week which is the week of the 24th through the 28th. We have an inspection, I presume, that’s from the stuff that
was done the week before. The HVAC guys are still here and then roof deck installation
is still happening. The Tuesday, the HVAC is still going on. In fact, HVAC is running
almost all the way through that second week as well. And then we have some
more framing going on, framing’s happening the whole
rest of the entire week. And then there’s fire safety
that is gonna be happening, so on Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, the 25th, 26th, 27th, and 28th, there’s fire safety going on. And then concrete comes in and I imagine this is after the plumber has gone in and actually ripped up some
of the concrete over here to move the plumbing around, so they need to have
concrete poured again, that’ll happen on the 26th. The 27th, which is that Thursday, that’s what electrical work is gonna start and that will continue on
into that Friday as well. Apparently, the electricians
are gonna be here for quite some time, because the week of March
2nd through March 6th, electric is on the
schedule that whole week. Ceiling panels are gonna be going in, the second the third of March, and then dry walling starts to happen on March 4th, 5th, and 6th. And so that’s gonna be really exciting ’cause we’re gonna be
tracking all of this, so I’ll probably be coming in here definitely on a weekly basis over the course of this process, but I might actually be coming in here a little bit more often than that when I get out of the clinic
and drive back by here, when I’m heading home. And so let’s look into
that second week of March. So, March 9th through the 13th,
there’s texturing going on, so that’s assuming all the drywall is up. They have to go and spray
texture all of those walls. Electric is still here
throughout that entire next week of the 9th through the 13th. Prepping for painting
is gonna be happening on March 11th, that’s a Wednesday, and then painting’s gonna
start happening on March 12th, if everything goes to plan. There’s another inspection
in there for the work that’s been done up until that point. And then the only other
thing happening this week is the painting so
there’s gonna, or sorry, is the door trim is gonna start going in on the 13th of March, Friday, the 13th. And alright, let’s go into
March 16th through the 20th. We have the reception
area desks are gonna go in and I think those are really cool. We’re gonna end up showing that to you on one of these vlogs
here about the design that we chose to go with for that. And then there’s gonna be a lot of different finishes happening that week of the 16th through the 20th. Flooring is gonna be going in. It looks like the
estimate is that Thursday, so Thursday March 19th, we’re gonna have some flooring going in. I think we’re getting
the laminate flooring so like really highly
durable laminate flooring is gonna be going in throughout
the whole entire place except for the three treatment rooms that are all marked off over here. We’re going to be going with
carpeting for those rooms and I think the sound rooms as well. And let’s see, they’re gonna be measuring for countertops as well the same time that the flooring’s going in. We’re gonna be measuring
for all the countertop space that we’re gonna have here. And then we have, what’s
that, the last week in March, the 23rd through the 27th of March. Again, electric is still here, golly, those guys, they must be
costing me a lot of money. Those electric guys are gonna be out here for quite some time. Flooring continues on in that week. It looks like flooring will be finished on that Monday, March 23rd. There’s finishes happening
that entire week as well. The interior windows
are gonna start to go up and I haven’t talked a lot about this yet from a design aspect but we’re gonna have a lot of glass in here, so glass walls that are
facing the hallways, out of the treatment
rooms, so on so forth, and as well as in the very front area, as you leave the reception
area and the front or in the waiting area to come back through the main hallway, there’ll be a glass partition there and a glass door that
you’ll be walking through so there’s gonna be a lot
of interior glass happening at this location as well. So that’s basically what’s happening, all that electric and all that stuff is happening through March 27th, and then as we get into, let’s see how many more pages I got here, yeah, just this last one. So looks like inspections
are gonna be happening, the March 30th through April
looks like April 2nd or so. And so inspections and then
installing the countertops that they measured for
that week or two before, and then finishes are
happening all of that week so based on the rough
schedule that we have here, so this is a very rough schedule. Who knows what could happen
inside of this time period but we are, we’re mid February right now, and it doesn’t even look like the way that it’s scheduled out that this is gonna take much
more than a month and a half according to if everything
goes exactly the plan, which I do not expect. I expect this to take,
worst case scenario here, I’m expecting it to take
probably about 2 1/2, three months or so, but hey
if everything goes to plan and everything’s really smooth, I would be more than
happy to get this location up and running somewhere in April which would be unbelievable because I’ve been telling my patients that we’re probably
looking out more into June, at this point, just for how long it took that whole entire process of
getting the permitting done. So we’ll see what happens. Like I said, I’m gonna
keep you guys posted, I’m gonna come in here, I don’t know if I’ll be doing stationary camera stuff anymore. I’ll probably be showing you
actually what’s happening and going in a little bit closer if I can get ahold of
any of the subcontractors and actually talk with them and get a little bit more insight for you, I will do that as well, but things are coming together
here and I am super excited. I think Charlie girl is excited too. So thanks for joining me this week. Sorry, it took me so
long to get this vlog up. I wanted to have something substantial to share with you guys
and I think this here is something fairly
substantial to show you, but hopefully the next time
that you see me in this space, I’ll actually be going over
what actual work has been done over that week or that couple of days since they’ve started
working on this place. So next week is going to
be a really exciting week and make sure that you have
subscribed to the channel and I’ll see you here really soon. (upbeat music)
