CBI: The Best Contractor For Your Renovations

As general contractors working on the construction or renovation of commercial business spaces, we get to experience the deep satisfaction that comes from seeing a building project completed. You can’t miss our work. Once a new commercial space is constructed or a building renovation is done, the results of our work are immediate and somewhat permanent. There is nothing like driving past a small business or a corporate office space and knowing that you are responsible for the constructed look and feel. Or walking into a chain retail space that you and your team renovated, and knowing that the space stands out from the chain’s other retail spaces for all the right reasons. Of course, the best part of our job is when the client is happy with the results and tells everyone they know that the best contractor in town is Commercial Building, Inc. in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

We have been fortunate to have that happen for us on multiple occasions.

From the beginning of Commercial Building, Inc. our mission has been to take our big city experience and build or renovate using small town prices. Commercial Building, Inc. owner Wes Davis spent ten years of his professional career working for one of the top 10 commercial building companies in North Carolina before moving on to even bigger opportunities. Prior to the formation of CBI, Mr. Davis oversaw the construction of over $38 million in residential and commercial construction projects. Wes Davis has taken what he learned from building and renovation projects in cities like Charlotte and Wilmington, and brought all of that knowledge and talent to cities like Fayetteville, NC and small towns like Pinehurst, NC.

Tips For Your New Construction Project

Good news for business owners! According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, new construction projects in the commercial sector are expected to grow at least for the next couple of years.

Safety is Key During Building Renovation Process

When it comes to building renovations and construction, you cannot be too careful. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA) nearly 1,000 people died in construction related accidents in 2016. The majority of those were from falls, but many deaths were also caused by electrocution, being struck by an object and equipment malfunctions. If you are doing building renovations, there are a few simple but vital safety procedures and protocol that you should follow to minimize the risk of getting hurt.

building renovations

Protect your head and your eyes. Wearing proper headgear and eye protection while doing any kind of construction or renovation work is absolutely necessary. One blow to the head from a falling object can be fatal. When working with certain machinery there is a chance that dust, electrical sparks, and/or flying particles can affect your eyes. Be sure that your face shield or eye protection fits correctly, and always inspect your protective headgear to make sure it is in good working condition.

Protect your hands and feet. When the renovation process calls for it, be sure to wear proper footwear and gloves to keep your feet and hands from being injured on the job. Shoes or boots should be slip resistant and not easily punctured. Gloves should be worn according to the renovation job you are doing. You may need electrical gloves, welding gloves or rubber gloves depending on the project.

Properly secure yourself when heights are involved. Be sure to follow manufacture guidelines for ladder safety. If you are using scaffolding, it needs to be on a level surface and never attempt to move it while others are on it.

Don’t risk getting shocked. When it comes to electrical safety during the renovation process, you  have to be vigilant. For starters, turn off any source of power to electrical outlets. Do not let anyone do electrical work until the power is off and grounds are attached. Also, do not allow any ladders, scaffolding or electrical equipment to come within ten feet of power lines. If you notice any frayed or damaged wiring, replace it immediately.

Renovations can be done correctly and safely with a little advance preparation. Commercial Building, Inc. specializes in building renovations and construction. We make safety a top priority for our team. We also know exactly what you need to complete your renovations correctly and according to your timeline for completion.

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 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.
