A General Contractor for Your Commercial Business

When it comes to hiring a general contractor, you might be experienced, or this might be something you’ve never done before. Perhaps you’re taking advantage of the COVID-19 closures and using this time to renovate your commercial building or maybe you see the upswing coming with businesses beginning to reopen, and you’re ready to take the plunge and start your commercial business from scratch. In that case, you need a commercial building space!

Either way, knowing what to look for in a general contractor and even know what a general contractor does and how they can help your commercial building process is essential. 

What Does a General Contractor Do?

A general contractor is the grease and guidance to make sure that your commercial building process goes smoothly. You want to be sure that your general contractor is licensed to oversee your commercial building process from start to finish. A solid general contractor will have licensing to meet the city’s requirements as well as any specialty work licensing requirements such as electrical, plumbing, or any number of other areas.

In your commercial building process, a good general contractor will also provide proof of liability insurance to make sure that your commercial building project is covered in the event of damages.

When you create a contract for your commercial building process, a general contractor should be willing to include a detailed description of the scope of work on your commercial building project and to include the timeline and a detailed description of the materials, labor, site management, and cleanup, and any permits required for the commercial building. 

Your general contractor should also include an assessment of fees and a payment schedule for your commercial building process. This will help to ensure that both parties feel secure in the contract for the timely completion of the commercial building and any deliveries of materials and payments for labor services.

If you have a commercial building project, you want the peace of mind that hiring a competent and trustworthy general contract supplies. With Commercial Building, Inc., you can be sure that you are getting the top tier quality that an excellent general contractor brings to the table.

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!

Designing Your Commercial Space

When designing your commercial building space, it’s important to consider not only the aesthetic but the function of the space. Do you own a restaurant? This space will naturally look and flow much differently than a dentist’s office or a creative agency. It’s important to hire a qualified general contractor who can help your vision for your commercial build, commercial renovation, or commercial upfit come to life in the most efficient way. No one wants to waste their budget or their time or compromise safety during this process.

Why Do You Need a General Contractor?

Recently, trends in office design has veered away from closed-off spaces and separate cubicles. Offices today are embracing open flow, non-traditional work areas. This might mean a large open space with tables for gathering or even a more residential-type space with sofas and chairs for lounging and collaborating. When you hire a general contractor in Fayetteville NC, you’re getting the expertise that comes with years of experience and the ability to stay ahead of trends in office spaces.

It’s also important to consider changes in environmental standards when constructing your commercial building. General contractors in Fayetteville, NC should be aware of the latest eco-friendly technologies and recommendations. It is becoming a staple of our forward-thinking society to use recycled materials and alternative energy sources to lessen our ecological footprint. General contractors can help you to make the best choices for your business for the present and the future.

At Commercial Building Inc., in Fayetteville, NC, our general contractors can help you with each step of your commercial renovation or commercial upfit.

Are You Thinking About Renovating Your Commercial Property? Why it Might be Time.

As a business owner, it’s easy to dream of renovating your commercial space and making it better. Perhaps you are looking for a more modern look or you want to expand your business and create room for growth. Whatever your goals, it’s natural and sometimes necessary for business owners to take commercial renovation into account.

At Commercial Building Inc., we’ve been in the commercial renovation and upfit game for years and as such, we’ve seen it all. We, like any great contractor will tell you, know that there always comes a time in a commercial property’s life when commercial renovation becomes necessary – and not just for aesthetic reasons, but for safety reasons!

Issues of a commercial property becoming unsafe can arise as part of natural disasters, natural aging of a building, outdated construction techniques, and more. For example, in some of the older buildings we see outdated electrical wiring that could be damaged, issues of mold growth due to moisture, and even some cases of asbestos and lead containing paint.

A commercial business owner may also decide that they need to update certain features of their property to become more energy efficient. For instance, they might wish to install skylights and more windows to let in more natural light and reduce their electrical costs.

A good general contractor can help to provide recommendations for how to become more energy efficient, safe, and aesthetically pleasing.

Safety in Your Commercial Renovation

Some say that cleanliness is next to Godliness. At Commercial Building Inc., we like to say that safety is. Did you know that the majority of workplace accidents in construction are from falls? Of course there are other incident reports of equipment malfunctions and falling objects, but we like to think that all of these incidents can and should be avoided. There are simple steps and safety procedures that we can all follow to minimize the amount of workplace construction accidents.

The number one rule in commercial building is to always protect your head and your eyes. By wearing regulation headgear and eye protection during a commercial construction or renovation project, you can minimize serious injuries. A single blow to the head from a falling object could be potentially fatal if you aren’t wearing protective headgear. Similarly, many projects in construction send debris or sparks into the air which could become lodged in the eye if you aren’t wearing protective eyewear.

You must also be sure to protect your hands and feet during commercial renovations. Proper gloves and footwear can keep your extremities from being easily punctured during projects. Likewise, special gloves or footwear may be required for safety during certain projects like electrical repairs and welding to protect from burns or electrocution.

In situations where a commercial renovation requires work at heights, it is important to always make sure that you are securely attached according to guidelines for ladder and scaffolding safety, as well as making sure that all elevation tools are in use on a level surface.

Commercial Building Inc. takes care to always follow safety guidelines such as these when we work in any commercial renovation. We specialize in renovations, upfits, construction, and more. With our expertise and great care for safety, we’ve developed a reputation for excellence with clients throughout North Carolina. If you want to know more about our projects or find out more about our safety protocols, please call 910-818-6811.
