Commercial Construction In A Small Town

If you visit any big city, chances are you will see construction going on somewhere. Cities seem to always be growing, and commercial construction plays a huge part in that growth. Here in North Carolina, small towns and villages have seen their own share of growth, with no signs of slowing down. Small businesses and big businesses alike are taking advantage of this new growth by establishing their presence in places where the population is growing.

Take the village of Pinehurst, North Carolina for instance. This small town has been around since the late 1800’s, and is known for its luxury golf resorts and wildly popular golf courses. Up until the census of 2000, Pinehurst maintained a population that was less than 10,000. However, since that time, the population in Pinehurst has gone up by more than 6,000 and the projected job growth for the next ten years is about 35%, with new commercial and residential construction exploding in the area. If you have been considering a commercial build in a small town like Pinehurst, now is the time to do it.

More people equals more jobs, and more opportunities for small businesses owners to get in on the growth and prosperity. Choosing Pinehurst for your next commercial construction build is an option that is worth your consideration.

What You Can Expect From Your Commercial Builder

You have a business plan and now you need a business space. You have never given much thought to commercial building before and the process may seem overwhelming at the moment. Our expert team at Commercial Building, Inc. can relieve any stress you may be feeling about the commercial building process.

Commercial building projects typically are divided into two types. The first is a complete build or from the ground up. Once a location for construction is determined, your commercial builder is with you every step of the way to completion. Commercial building projects of this nature include building plans, civil engineering, and everything from demolition, windows, and doors to masonry, painting, insulation, drywall, and so much more. Also, your commercial builder installs the plumbing, electrical systems, and mechanical systems. At Commercial Building, Inc. we have dedicated companies that handle HVAC installation, electrical work, and sprinkler systems. Anything you need to complete your commercial building, Commercial Building, Inc. is able to deliver.

The second type of commercial building project is called an upfit. An upfit happens when an existing property is purchased or rented out for commercial use. Many times when an existing space is purchased or rented for commercial purposes, it isn’t set up or laid out the way that the business owner desires. Commercial builders can come into the commercial space and provide upgrades to the interior design or layout. This includes everything from interior construction to plumbing systems and specialty renovations, as well as all of the services offered in a complete build. Our team at Commercial Building, Inc. has been a part of many local upfit projects.

Do you have a need for a commercial builder that you can trust to get the job done right and in a timely manner? Commercial Building, Inc. takes pride in being Fayetteville and Pinehurst’s Commercial Upfit Specialists.

Important Tried and True Methods of Construction

At Commercial Building, Inc., we know how important tried and true methods of construction are to general contracting. We also understand that staying current with modern trends in general contracting keeps our business afloat and growing. As one of the top ten general contracting companies in North Carolina, we’ve built our business on innovation.

For the upcoming autumn season, our general contractors have identified several trends in commercial building.

Construction that incorporates energy-efficient wall systems is becoming more and more popular with general contractors. We install insulating concrete blocks throughout the entire wall structure, which not only reduces maintenance and everyday heating and coolings costs for business owners but also increases structural strength to combat the effects of severe weather.

Going green in commercial building is a continuing trend our general contractors have noticed for all seasons. The use of energy efficient glass in our construction projects is employed whenever possible by our general contractors. More and more companies desire natural lighting over artificial lighting in their buildings. Our general contractors choose smart-glass that emphasizes energy efficient technology, with electronic controls for glare reduction and insulation so your building won’t overheat.

More trends for fall that our general contractors keep in mind, include changing cultures in the workplace. Many modern companies desire more relaxed areas for their employees to gather, work, and collaborate! Whether this casual space is an indoor lounge or an outdoor veranda, our general contractors know how to meet your needs.

Keeping in mind the changing trends of commercial building, our general contractors exceed expectations and achieve greatness in commercial construction. Contact Commercial Building, Inc. for more information about these new and tried and true construction methods for your next project! 910-818-6811.

What General Contractor Want You To Know!

When you find yourself in need of commercial construction, it may occur to you that you may be able to handle some of the aspects of the project you’re looking to start. While this may be true for certain things, there are cases in which you definitely want to refer to a general contractor. Below are a few things to keep in mind as to why professional is better!

Bye Bye Lead

Not being a general contractor might mean you don’t know all the rules to watch out for when it comes to commercial construction. For example, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has strict standards when it comes to containing lead paint. Not being certified in this profession means you may not know the rules you need follow, which can not only lead you to some trouble, but can have harming effects on the individuals involved.

 

Demolition

 

Because of rules for handling hazardous substances, you definitely want to stay clear of demolition. While in the past it may have been something that could have been done yourself, and even encouraged to do so, taking a chance and potentially harming yourself or others, isn’t something you want to do.

 

Building Code

 

There are just some things that don’t occur to people who are working on something that they’re not licensed to do, or is not their profession. Navigating building codes for your area can be difficult for someone who isn’t accustomed to worrying about that sort of thing. A licensed general contractor will be up to speed on all the building codes for your area, so it doesn’t even have to be a concern for you.

 

DIY (Do it yourself) DAW (Doesn’t Always Work)

 

People outside of the construction/general contractor profession may assume that doing things themselves to save some money is a better choice, but that isn’t always the case. Besides not being an expert in the profession, projects may not turn out as well due to the more cost effective options you may have chosen to use to complete a project. Using a general contractor may be more expensive, but it’ll save you a lot of worry down the road because you’ll know the job was done correctly.

2017 Industrial Construction Trends To Look Out For

As with any industry, trends and practices are constantly advancing with every year that passes. Industrial construction is no exception to this.

2017 is bringing upon new trends to look out for. Unfortunately with good news, there may be some bad news following, so let’s get that out of the way first!

In 2017, finding laborers will continue to be a difficult task. Due to the recession, a large portion of the construction workforce was forced to leave their jobs for other sources of employment. Unfortunately, many of these laborers have not returned to the construction industry. Although this may sound like a negative thing, this may open the doors to those individuals interested in making their entrance into this field.

While finding workers may be a difficult task, the opportunity for growth in the construction business will only increase over the next couple of years. In 2016 spending slowed down, compared to previous years. In 2017, it is reported that there will be a 6.3% increase in spending according to ConstructConnect.

It has been mentioned that President Trump has intentions on proposing $1 trillion spending plan to fix America’s infrastructure over ten years. Although it’s hard to determine the guarantee of this following through, the possibility is something to look forward to.

Modular construction will also be on the rise. Although this is far from a new trend, it is something that will be embraced more in 2017. Due to being time and cost effective it can be a better alternative for certain projects, while still producing an aesthetically appealing look.

Lastly, safer job sites are projected to be seen more of this year. This is due to OSHA upping its penalties for safety violations is the last year. This is beneficial because the safer the conditions, the more appealing construction work will look to prospective workers.

Be sure to keep an eye out for these projected trends for 2017!

Ways to Spot out an Illegitimate Contractor

The process of building or remodeling is hard but working with an illegitimate contractor can make the process much harder. Here are a few ways you can spot an illegitimate contractor.

Providing Quotes “off the top of the head”

An honest contractor will never provide you a quote “off the top of their head”. Instead, they will examine the problem and will later give you a written thought out quote that includes the cost breakdown of both labor and parts. If you find yourself with a contractor that easily jots down a price on a piece of paper without looking more into the problem then you should find yourself a new contractor IMMEDIATELY. Giving a quote “off the top of the head” is only acceptable when the problem is a very minor one that could easily be fixed without much time.

Can’t Provide You with a Business Card

Whatever business a person is in, it is professional for them to always have business cards, especially for contractors. Even if it is a small business contractor, a business card is still necessary for it shows that they are legitimate. Also the business card should have a street address and not a post office box. This is very important because you want to be able to locate them if there are any questions or concerns. Try to avoid those that are not able to provide you with a business card for they can more and likely be scam artists.

Not Able to Give Out Referrals

Avoid any contractor that is not able to give out referrals. Any successful contractor would be excited to provide you with names and comments of well pleased customers that they have worked with over the years. If they are not able to provide you with referrals, go check for yourself on popular review websites such as Angie’s List and HomeAdvisor.

 Tips on How to Stay Safe During Construction

At Commercial Building we love when our clients are excited as much as we are about their project. But with that excitement comes a lot of curiosity, so we understand that during construction our eager clients want to constantly see the progress that we are making along the way. Whether it is a new construction, upfits or renovations we know that wanting to be around the project as much as possible can be very tempting for you. Although it is tempting, please remember the safety procedures of going through a work site. Here in this post will provide you few tips that will keep you safe during construction.

  • Always let your contractor and job site superintendent know that you are planning to visit the site. Letting them know in advance will prepare them as well give them enough time to clear the site of any debris or tools. This will also allow your site superintendent to give you a proper tour around the project and answer any questions that you may have. Try to schedule a visit a least a day before you actually come, for our site superintendents are very busy with turning your dream project into a reality.
  • No matter what, you should always wear a hard hat when there is overhead work going on. Your site superintendent should provide you with one.
  • If you are planning to visit the site after hours make sure that you let your contractor know. This is important for they can let you know of any spots that are not safe to walk through.

Again, we know that you are very ecstatic about your new project but let’s not forget about being safe. Contact Commercial Building for all of your commercial upfit and new construction needs. We are Fayetteville’s Commercial Upfit Specialist.
