We often dream of an extensive renovation project for our home or think of building a house from the ground up but seldom act upon it. Most of us drop back to reality, thinking, “I wouldn’t even know where to start!” So, here’s the solution to your problem. If you would like to build or renovate your home, you will need to enlist the help of several professionals from the construction world. We have put together a comprehensive list of professionals involved in building a house for a hassle-free successful construction project from start to finish.
Fourteen important partners work with you to build or renovate your home. Let’s take a look:
The first person you need to speak to is a real estate agent. If you want to build a home, the most crucial element to consider is the location. Out of the affordable plot locations in your city, which one is closest to your workplace, good schools, hospitals, and amenities like grocery stores, children’s parks, and shopping malls.
Whether you want to build or redesign your home, you will need to approve the building, engineering drawings, and floor plans. All of these real estate renderings are usually drawn in 2D and are difficult for laypersons to understand.
It is always helpful to engage a 3D rendering team to develop three-dimensional versions of the building plans to help you understand the architect’s vision. Styldod offers extensive 3D rendering services to create hyper-realistic images similar to photographs. You can view the finished project and understand the spatial differences, if any.

An architect is the team leader for your construction project and visualizes the design according to your preferences. Architects understand your needs and design the layout of your home. They are also responsible for coordinating with all the other project partners to ensure the best results. Work in tandem with your architect to conceptualize and create functional spaces in your new home.
After the structure is complete, you will need an interior designer who can create the décor of your choice. An interior designer helps you design the interior spaces to create aesthetically pleasing and functional areas inside your home.
Building or renovating a home is a big project that needs financing. Unless you have a large sum put away, you will need to avail a bank loan. Talk to a bank or lender who can offer financial advice on mortgages, home loans, EMIs, and so on. Select a bank or lender who explains the terms and conditions with clarity and gives the best interest rate so that you can repay the loan quickly.
After an architect has drawn out the building plan, a structural architect works to design the foundation, calculate the load, and define the slabs, beams, columns of the structure. A structural engineer ensures that your home has a structurally sound skeleton and is safe for use.
Before any construction begins, you will be required to avail of the required permits from the local building permit agencies. They will look into details such as your building design, the floor area ratio, the floor space index, and fire safety compliances. If everything is in line with the permissions in your zone, you will be given the permit for construction.
Every building needs plumbing and electricity. Involve an electrician early on; they will prepare the wiring and boxes at the framing stage itself. Plumbers will be required to put water and gas connections in place and develop a sewerage system in your house.
Contractors are home building experts who take charge of building the structure for your home. Usually, contractors have an experienced crew who work on the construction process. They supervise the laborers and workers on the site.
The building is the main element of a home, but there are many other spaces outside and around the building that make up the whole premises. Hire a good landscape and environmental architect to design your garden spaces, balconies, and swimming pool.
Usually, the woodwork, including the doors, windows, and cabinetry, is managed by someone who has knowledge of woodwork and leads a crew of carpenters. The woodwork contractor sources the wood and designs it as per the interior designer before fitting it into the house.
Painters are experts at interior and exterior painting of your house. They can create the finish that you want. Drywallers are people who put up drywall in the place to hide wires, insulation, and studs. They can also create different wall textures as you or your interior designer want.
Electrical engineers are needed to arrange and distribute the electrical wiring in your home. They work to pre-prepare the wires and boxes at the framing stage and then fix the cover plates after the drywalling is done. Faulty wirings can cause fires in the future.
Masons are the experts who work with cement and concrete. They create durable structures following the directions of the structural engineer. Roofers are workers who work on trusses, insulation, and final roofing in your home.
