ABC: Always Be Constructing Every blog needs a topic to serve as the over-arching connection between the posts. For this blog, we chose the topic of construction and contractors. We have a few reasons for that choice. For one, we wanted a topic that would appeal to a lot of people. Most people have hired a contractor or will hire one at some point, so that means the topic applies to a large audience. Our other goal was to choose a topic that we could write a lot about. That certainly applies to the field of contracting. After all, everyone from painters to road workers belongs to this industry. Without further ado, welcome to our blog. Enjoy what you read!


Faqs About Commercial Construction

Commercial construction is an industry that covers a broad range of construction that has to do with commercial structures. You may have questions regarding this field of construction. If so, then you may find the answers to some of those questions here: 

What are some examples of commercial construction projects?

Designing and building commercial buildings

Commercial construction includes the designing and building of single-use commercial buildings. A couple of examples would include a grocery store or a gas station. 

Designing and building complexes and office buildings

Commercial construction also includes designing and building complexes and office buildings. These differ from single-use buildings because these complexes and buildings are designed to be used by a number of different businesses while sharing the same property, and in many cases, some walls. 

Designing and building institutions

Another thing that commercial construction includes is the designing and building of institutions. A few of these would include schools, hospitals, and prisons. 

Is all commercial construction new construction?

No, there are many types of commercial construction projects that don't include the construction of a new structure. A few types of commercial construction that involve pre-existing buildings include -

  • The demolition of an existing building and the clearing of the property

  • Remodeling a commercial building to include new features and/or additions

  • Renovating an older building to bring it up to code and make it like new again

Is it necessary to hire a commercial construction contractor to do the work?

It's critical for commercial construction jobs to be done correctly. They need to be completed, so everything is up to code and so all the spaces and systems will be safe and reliable. This is why you should hire a contractor to complete the job. 

Some other advantages of doing so include having the project completed on time, ensuring the project doesn't end up going way over budget, and having the peace of mind that the job is being done safely by experts. Also, commercial contractors have a network that allows them to get the right supplies for the job at a much better price than you would pay to go to the hardware store. They also have the tools and equipment on hand, whereas you would have to figure out everything you would need, then rent or buy it all. The end result will likely look and function much better, having been done by the pros.
