Once an ecology lab has been in use for several years, it may be necessary to renovate it. That is because after several years of use, the lab is likely to have started experiencing wear and tear. You may find, for instance, that the lab’s roof has started to leak. Or you may find that the lab’s floor has developed cracks. Or it may be a case where, after several years of use, some of the sinks in the lab have started getting blocked rather too frequently. All these would make it necessary for you to have the facility renovated.
Having made the decision to renovate the ecology lab, you then need to:
- Identify the specific renovations that need to be made
- Mobilize funds for the renovation project
- Identify a contractor to help you in the renovation project
- Close the lab for the renovation works
- Embark on the actual renovation works (and get them done fast)
You would then need to ensure that the people doing the actual renovation works are properly supervised, to ensure a high standard of workmanship. Once the renovation works are completed, you would need to undertake an audit, to ensure that everything was done properly. The contractor may, understandably, express reservations about this sort of audit — especially if the renovation project was a minor one. But you would need to insist of undertaking a thorough check, before declaring the project complete. It is really just the same way that, say, the payroll for the folks working at CVS Health has to be audited, before the actual myhr cvs pay stubs are issued. You would similarly need to audit the ecology lab renovation project, before declaring the project complete and making the final payment to the contractor who was doing it. This is just a matter of prudence: for if you declare the project complete without checking thoroughly, and you later discover that something is amiss, you may have a difficult time tracing the contractor and getting him to redo the renovation work.
