When Do You Need To Write A Renovation Scope Of Work?

If you are engaging a builder to manage your whole renovation then the scopes are the builder’s responsibility.

A renovation scope of work is a written account of the tasks that you require each trade to complete on your project and an outline of your rules of engagement. It forms the basis of your tendering process and ensures that the majority work that needs to be done to complete the project is covered by the trade quotes.
