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.

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.




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.
