Comprehensive Project
These are projects that are implemented as one coordinated undertaking.

For example:
  • The exterior wood trim is recoated in all locations around the building at the same time, regardless of their exposure conditions.
  • All components of the domestic water distribution system are replaced at the same time, including: hot water, cold water, risers, recirculation lines and branch lines.
Some of the major advantages of this approach:
  • The owners can sometimes leverage the best economies of scale.
  • Peace of mind that all the work has been completed with limited risk arising from incomplete work.
Some of the disadvantages of this approach:
  • High up-front cost, which may be difficult for some owners.
  • May sometimes result in more work being done than is absolutely necessary since high and low-priority areas are all addressed at the same time.
