CBI Insight: School Construction Projects

We treat every job like it’s our most important, but something extra comes out on school construction projects. Something about working on educational institutions as small as preschools or as large as military academies makes us reflect on why doing our best work matters. While we’ve done this hundreds of times across North Carolina, we never lose sight of the great opportunity that comes with every project of this sort. You can learn a lot with open eyes, open ears and open minds. And when we apply what we learn, each new school construction project becomes our best yet.

No Cookie Cutter Way
There’s no cookie cutter way to build or expand a school or at least there shouldn’t be. While processes and procedures that relate to these projects, they’re only effective when coupled with the insight that can only come through listening to those who will use an educational space generations after our crews pack it in.
Based on our experience listening matters, especially when we took on major renovation and expansion school construction projects. If we didn’t listen to the concerns of school officials and community members, we couldn’t have pulled off these projects.

Innovation
Schools of all kinds are meant to give students a place to learn, think and create. We’ve learned that innovation breeds innovation, so we focus on innovative design and construction solutions for these important spaces.
Creativity in the design process doesn’t automatically fit into the parameters many architects and contractors use for constructing schools. The traditional process focuses on management, schedule, budget, efficiency and leaves little room for creativity. This process doesn’t just undermine innovation, it can kill it.

Cost Effective
Stakes are high on school construction projects due to the staggering amount of time and effort it takes to secure funding for them, especially for taxpayer supported public schools. Keeping costs in check is vital when you’re working with such hard won resources. With equal parts communication, coordination and old-fashioned grit, we finish school construction project weeks ahead of schedule while finding cost effective ways to save taxpayers and further redirected funding to improving student education instead.

Let’s Talk
Commercial Building, Inc. (CBI) understands the construction of buildings whose administrators educational plans are built around a calendar. From University buildings to K through 12 schools for small communities, they know the ropes for educational facilities.

Choosing the right Commercial Builder

When it comes to commercial building construction and renovation projects, choosing the wrong contractor can lead to delays, subpar work, and even legal problems. It will also be financially expensive, and it will even have an adverse impact on the quality of life.

On the other hand, a professional contractor understands what you need and can deliver a job that exceeds your expectations. However, the search for a professional that provides astute workmanship, and a stress-free experience requires research.

To help make the process of selection easier, here’s a list of the top things to look for in a commercial building contractor.

Professionalism
Given that a contractor’s job involves handling several kinds of materials and services, they should be really professional with their clients. They should be willing to commit, offer an estimate, and a time frame to complete the job. Besides, they should do the job in a manner that causes the least possible disruption to those using the area.

Knowledgeable
A general contractor should have knowledge of the kind of work you have hired them for. Often, contractors say that they have done a somewhat similar project. However, we would advise you to ask whether they know the same job as you want them to do. Similarly, they have to know about various kinds of materials, about their price, function and also whether they suit a specific climate or not.

Understands the client’s needs
Any kind of commercial construction work, repair or roofing requires that a contractor patiently listens to the client. They must be able to communicate all the options available to his clients and help the client in reaching the final decision rather than imposing his choice.

Accessibility
It’s essential for a contractor to be accessible so that a client’s inquiries are taken care of at all times. If a contractor is physically not reachable, then they must be approachable via phone calls and emails. However, in the initial phase of work, they should also be personally present to discuss face to face with the client all aspects of the task.

Executes According to Plan
A contractor should be able to execute a project in accordance with the terms agreed with a client. Once they have decided upon something, they shouldn’t make any changes without consultation with the client. If the client asks for any changes, then the contractor should be responsive to the same.

If you’re looking for a contractor with these attributes, reach out to Commercial Building, Inc. We offer the best home remodeling and renovations in Fayetteville, NC, and surrounding areas, providing construction renovations, remodeling services and supply building materials to commercial businesses. Commercial Building, Inc. doesn’t just build, we also design the structure or renovation to fit your commercial needs.

Commercial Remodeling: The Answer is in the Details

As in most professions, details matter. A customer or client may not even see or understand the attention to detail you pour into a product or project, but you know. There is a sense of pride in knowing you’ve done everything in your power to make sure the end product is the absolute best. The same can be said for the best commercial renovation projects.

Some have said that in regard to details, “Commercial Building, Inc. (CBI) is to buildings as Disney World is to theme parks.” Details make a difference. Therefore, in addition to the talented contractors, designers and project managers, the company also offers in house selfperforming options to make sure your commercial project gets the utmost attention to detail.

Commercial building renovations and remodeling are a big undertaking for any property owner. It’s so big that many will only go through a major remodel once or twice in their lifetime. When the remodel begins, many property owners don’t know what to expect. Being informed can help make a remodel or upgrade less stressful and more worthwhile. Doing research and working with CBI commercial general contractors is important when working out the details
for your commercial remodeling project.

Done right, commercial renovation delivers high return on investment (ROI) while improving property value. Working with our CBI experienced contractors, maintaining good communication throughout the project, and working carefully together through the planning stages will help make your next commercial project a success.

Commercial Remodeling:
Every commercial remodel is different, but in general, a typical commercial construction project will proceed like this:
1. Planning
2. Bidding
3. Contractor selection and contract signing
4. Prep and purchase of materials
5. Demolition
6. Construction
7. Clean up and finishing

Once you’ve signed a contract with CBI, our general contractors will be able to walk you through all the stages of construction. The contract will explain a lot about how the construction project will proceed. In addition, your CBI contractor will have a guide that will help you understand the remodeling process.

Do we Shut Down during renovations?
Business may not have to stop while the remodel takes place. CBI contractors can work in shifts before or after customers arrive, on weekends when the business is closed, or behind curtains, while business is conducted as normal.

The ways in which the construction is handled depends on the type of business being remodeled, expected noise levels, indoor air quality, and other factors. If the changes being made are dramatic, the business may need to shut down for all or part of the time. Property owners must be aware that choosing to keep business going may draw out the process, and complications can arise when contractors and customers are in the same place at the same time.

Sometimes, businesses choose to move locations temporarily while the remodel is happening. This is one way to keep business going while conducting the remodel safely. Talk to your trusted CBI contractors to find out your options and decide what is best for you. Overall, commercial remodeling has many benefits. Although remodeling projects happen only occasionally, businesses get a big boost from making improvements.

Benefits of Commercial Remodeling Services
1. Improve Use of Space: It’s important for businesses to optimize their use of space. Installation of custom cabinetry, reshaping or redesign of an attic or storage area, and even redesign of offices and cubicles are ways that a commercial renovation project can free up space in the office.

2. Cosmetic Improvements: Typically, these improvements will be minor, but every so often, dramatic action must be taken. This may include replacing the flooring, painting the walls, installing modern light fixtures, replacing dated furnishings and so on.

3. Better Efficiency and Sustainability: Older fixtures and older buildings tend to be less efficient because these structures were not designed with efficiency in mind. Remodeling is an excellent opportunity to improve efficiency and sustainability.

4. Rebranding Opportunity: When companies go through rebranding, one of the first things they typically do is change the look and feel of their workspace. Matching the look of the business to the brand is one way that companies spread and reinforce their message.

5. Improve Safety: Older buildings are often unsafe in various ways, because they do not meet modern safety standards. Many companies remodel to improve the safety of their workers and customers. This is a good way to prevent accidents in the workplace.

Sure, it will take more than a day’s work and some on-site disruption, but the inconveniences are minor and far outweighed by the end result.

Give customers and clients a reason to keep coming back. Also, if you are leasing out your commercial property to tenants, you also need to take care of the building inside and out, and make it a truly functional and attractive setting.

Benefits of Renovations with a Commercial Contractor

Giving your place of business a renovation is like getting a commercial uplift. Be sure that your property is freshly updated with the latest designs and structural amenities for your particular industry, and spot on when it comes to providing your business with current needs for workable space. Importantly, timely renovations of your business space can also save you money in the long run by identifying and fixing problems that could end up costing more if neglected.

Find a Top-Notch Commercial Renovations Specialist

Renovating the space where a business operates can be crucial to its success. Don’t just rely on adverts and promotional offers alone.

Commercial Building and Renovations During COVID-19

There’s something about springtime that gets homeowners and business owners thinking about making renovations. With the current state of the world amidst COVID-19, you might think that these ambitions should be put aside, but if you are a business owner, particularly the owner of a non-essential building, then now is the perfect time to get busy on renovations for your commercial building.

State and local governments have made the difficult decisions to shut down all non-essential businesses to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This means that commercial buildings have had to shut their doors and send staff home to work in isolation. If you’re able to take advantage of this downtime without undue financial hardship – now is the perfect time to start your commercial renovation project.

While your staff is working from home and customers aren’t able to access your space, you can renovate your commercial building with greater efficiency and access that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Replacing floors, electrical, appliances, and even greater layout and access issues won’t be a hindrance to people trying to enter into or work and patronize your building. Not to mention, you greatly decrease the risk for any safety concerns during construction with fewer people on site.

When you choose to work with Commercial Building, Inc., on your commercial building renovations, you can be sure that we have your health and safety, as well as the health and safety of our workers in mind. 

We follow the CDC recommendations for social distancing, hand washing, and utilize PPE to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure a safe working space for all. The decision to embark on a commercial building renovation project during this time will be highly personal, but it’s also the perfect opportunity if you can, to take care of those projects you’ve been putting off. 

Call us at 910-818-6811 to find out more about the services we offer and our recommendations for your property. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about operational safety during this time. We look forward to hearing from you!

  7. Wash your hands after you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose.
