Insulation is an area where some look to save. Because after all, the reasoning goes, you cannot see the insulation in the walls or the attic once it is complete and who wants to spend money on things you can not see in your new home? Do not make this mistake. Not only will it translate into a lifetime of higher monthly energy bills, but it will lead to everyday discomfort with the home feeling too cold in winter and too hot in summer.
All construction work is ultimately undertaken for the benefit of a client. Clients fund the construction process, whether they are individuals extending their homes, or a multi-national corporation developing a cutting-edge production facility, or a government department providing much needed social infrastructure. The importance of clients cannot be over-emphasized. Very often clients do not get the building they want, because they do not know how to ask for it and the architect or other consultants think the building should look a different way. Clients expect that the project will be a success and that the providers will deliver a competent service. They will be dissatisfied, if these expectations are not met.
