What is the standard timeline for a HDB renovation project?

A standard timeline for a HDB renovation will depend on the work needed. 

For example, let’s take a simple BTO kitchen cabinet package

After confirmation with your chosen renovation firm, you’ll need to choose the materials like laminate and quartz. 

Depending on whether you already have something in mind or just going to think about it, this can take anywhere from: 

Choosing of materials for kitchen cabinet

  • 3 days to up to 2 weeks for fickle minded homeowners

While going through this process, homeowners can already send their chosen laminate designs to renovation firm for them to start the drawing. Some renovation firm provides the 3D rendering. You’ll need to confirm with yours about it. 

The 3D rendering can take another: 

3D rendering

  • 3 days to 1 week. 

If you need to change the laminate designs, this can take up more time deciding on the final design to be used for your kitchen cabinet. While the process is taking place, the base of the kitchen cabinet can already be constructed and electrical points extended. 

For this to happen, decision on the layout of your kitchen cabinet would have been made. 

Base construction takes only: 

  • 1 day

Electrical works should also take only 

  • 1 day

After this it’s the taking of measurements for your kitchen cabinet. Once measurements, finalizing the layout and choosing laminate designs are done, fabrication can take:

  • 2 to 3 weeks

When fabrication is completed, delivery and installation can take another: 

  • 1 to 2 days

Followed by countertop measurement to installation another: 

  • 3 to 5 days

And finally its the installation of your electrical connections, switches and installation of your sink and tap. Considering that there is no glass backing for your kitchen cabinet. If there is the whole process will take longer.
