The reality is that the construction journey is far from over for commercial buildings when it comes to simply looking complete. When it comes to post-construction, the final phase of the construction process for commercial buildings involves much more than just clean-up. This stage consists of the relationship between you and your contractor as the hands-off process begins.

The experts at CBI are here to explain some good pointers and the key things you need to look for in this involved process.



Warranties – A good builder will follow through with the warranty and fix any problems that pop up post construction. A builder taking the time to go over each warranty that covers your building and explaining how they apply to you is exceptional. Our team at CBI does exactly this — knowing how your warranties can be put to work for you empowers you as you manage your new building.

Building Check-ups – Working with a construction design-build company like CBI guarantees that you will get a check up to see how the building is doing after construction is complete and the general contractors leave.  At CBI, we’ll check in periodically with you to ensure you are just as satisfied today as you were when you had your grand opening for your new building.

Smooth Turnover – Building construction companies often deal with frequent turnover, but that should not affect the quality of construction for your building. Not to mention the follow-up with expansions and post-construction work. At CBI, we have an established system that ensures consistent results every time.

Additional Projects – If you are happy with how your commercial contractor is handling your post-construction phase, that makes a huge impact for future projects on your facility. Whether facility expansions or new buildings of their own, it is important to pay attention to the quality of work your builder gives you to determine whether it is wise to continue moving forward with them.



Commercial building companies like CBI are key players when it comes to commercial building and understands mediocre and exceptional service. At CBI, we go above and beyond with our clients, and our reputation is strong because of it. See for yourself in our portfolio on our website.

 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.

Busting Myths: Unfolding Several Myths about Renovating Your Business

There are a lot of myths about renovating and doing business with contractors in general. But here are a few that we run into when dealing with clients that we try to mark as ‘busted’ each time. 

“Doing It Yourself Is More Cost Efficient” You wouldn’t perform a surgery on yourself would you? No you wouldn’t, you would go to a professional. So why treat your business or facility any different? If you can do it yourself then great, but if you can’t now is not the time to tackle a project from the teachings of a self-help book. Doing it yourself can turn out to be a more expensive decision than calling a professional contractor if you do not know what you are doing.

“You Pay Less When You Buy Your Own Materials” You may think you are saving a few extra dollars by going to the hardware store yourself and buying the materials but trust us you’re not. From years of doing business we’ve developed relationships with suppliers who can offer more awesome deals. 

“You Pay Less with Cheaper Materials” We will not buy supplies that will cost you an arm and a leg but we will buy supplies that will suite the job properly. Sure you will pay less if we bought cheap materials but you will be paying much more after experiencing damage in the long term. 

“The Working Environment is No Longer Safe or Quiet Due to Renovations” At Commercial Business Incorporated we understand that the show must go on and that you have a business to run. That is why we try our best to reduce any noises during the workday at a minimum and make it safe for your employers to carry out a productive day. We want to work around your employers and not have them work around us.

“A Renovation is Only Needed When Something Is Broken” The phrase “If Isn’t Broke Don’t Fix It” does not apply to renovations. Calling our company for renovations doesn’t require for your business to be falling apart. Renovating is great way to impress others with its updated professional look while giving your employers a fresh new environment to work in.

Plan, Design, Manage and Build

There are so many benefits of hiring a general contractor when renovating or building a commercial space. Unfortunately, there are so many entrepreneurs and business owners that don’t understand the benefits of hiring a general contractor. General contractors will have proven quality subcontractors that have worked for them time and again. A general contractor or construction management company will work with the subcontractors to ensure their work is done in a timely manner, with good quality and efficiency.

Subcontractors work to please general contractors and always give them a better deal than owners trying to manage the project themselves. Not to mention all the construction material and supplies that are purchased at a huge discounted rate by general contractors. A few other benefits to mention is that a general contractor will make sure that the construction site is always safe, secure and is insured so you don’t need to worry about damage liability to the project site.

By hiring a general contractor, you avoid the headaches of dealing with contracts, subcontractors hiring the right construction personnel buying the material and in the end, you’ll save time and money. What separates Commercial Building Inc. from other general contractors is that we have the experience and leadership of our President and Lead Project Manager, Wes Davis. Wes Davis worked and trained at a top Commercial Construction Company in NC and was also a Chief Estimator at a building company in Wilmington where he worked on projects ranging from $20,000 to huge multi-million dollar projects. We provide other services that many general contractors do not. We will provide planning, architectural services, construction management and self-perform some of the work making us the best choice for your projects.
