Site Surveys

We follow best practices of residential construction, and that includes pre-construction site surveys that identify any issues with a project plan well before construction. Our pre-construction processes inform project design.

don't just take our word for it...

I had a wonderful experience working with Ben, Tom, and team on a recent bathroom remodel, and was really pleased with the quality of work. They were incredibly responsive, professional, and communicative, and offered design guidance and rationale for any decisions that needed to be made along the way. And I’m really happy with my new bathroom!

I contacted Bela Development to get a quote, and from the first site visit through completion of the project, Bela Development were a pleasure to deal with and the work exceeded my expectations. I had tried for months to get a “handy man” over to fix it, but they would either fail to return my calls or they would not show up for a scheduled appointment. I highly recommend Bela Development.

I’m so happy with the work quality and professionalism of Ben and Ron with Bela. After contacting Bela over the weekend, they were here on Monday to provide an estimate, got to work two days later, and the work was completed by Friday! Not only that, the project managers came by multiple times to make sure I was happy with the work.

Great experience with Bela Development. Ben was very professional and courteous. We met with Ben and explained that we needed shower doors and installation. He described a few different solutions and styles and we decided on frameless shower doors with barn style hardware. The work was done on time and the result was excellent.

Easy to work with, patient, knowledgeable and great with communication. He (Yossi) kept us updated every step of the way and always made himself available to address our questions or concerns. He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the end result and helped us stay within budget while still accommodating our vision.

Beautiful work, the workers wore masks and put down plastic on my floors where they walked on. I did make some changes in the middle of the project and they did it with no problems. I absolutely love my bathroom and highly recommend them! They’re not cheap but also not the most expensive. I’m really glad I went with them!!!

We talked to several different contractors, looking for someone who took the time to listen to our needs, had a good communication style, strong attention to detail, and a reasonable price. Bela Development topped the list in all three. We’re really happy with our new bathroom and would recommend Bela to anyone looking for a contractor!

- Robb K. from Culver City, CA

- Yelp review

We met with a lot of different contractors to discuss our garage-to-office conversion but ultimately chose Bela Development. From start to finish, they were very responsive and handled any speed bump exactly the way you’d want to. The crew worked fast, effectively and respectfully. We will call again, as soon as it is time for our next project.

Pre-Construction Planning

Our experienced professionals are well-versed in all the details that come before a team can even break ground on a project, from acquiring the necessary pre-construction permits and knowing Los Angeles’ complicated building codes to considering engineering constraints within a project plan. We understand that every new project is a little different than the last. Our pre-construction services are customized to meet the unique needs of locations and obstacles that come up along the way, with your vision, timeline, and budget in mind.

Good construction starts with a solid foundation, literally and figuratively. Sound planning is imperative for the successful and timely finish of a project regardless of size. Whether we’re simply updating the cabinets in a bathroom or gutting an entire home, we’re not swinging a single hammer until we have a solid plan in place.

Our pre-construction checklist plans for every possible contingency, hiccup, or setback our team may encounter during a project. Morevover, it leaves plenty of room for last-minute decisions or changes of heart. In our initial meeting with you, the client, we’ll discuss your budget, your goals, and the main objectives of your project.

To elaborate on that last point:

  • What are you looking for?
  • What purpose will it serve?
  • What will stay and what will go?

After asking our questions and getting to know you, we’ll take that information and start drawing up 3D plans to present to you on our next visit. Our clients always appreciate how detailed we are with our 3D renders. Believe me, it’s almost like we’ve already brought your remodel to life with a detailed architecture drawing house plan.

Once we get the green light and have nailed down a budget, it’s time to set a timeline for completing the project. This timeline will include dealing with your HOA and any permits along the way. We’ll pull all of the necessary permits to make sure your project is up to code, safe, and legally sound. Because of our detailed engineering plan for house construction, we can ensure we’ll stay up to code from the start through the end of the project. It doesn’t matter how complex a building is, our house design plans can withstand even the most scrutinous inspectors.

All of this is done thanks to detailed planning involving our designers, architects & contractors. At Bela Development, we’re all about maximizing time, saving you money, and most importantly bringing your dream to life. That all starts with a pre-construction plan.
