The challenges of commercial construction can make it difficult for a building owner to navigate every aspect and function as their own general contractor.
Working with a seasoned, full-service general contractor has many advantages, with cost savings among one of the biggest.
–Expertise in construction management. Your general contractor oversees management tasks through each phases of a commercial project. While each project presents unique factors, this often includes budgeting, planning, scheduling, packaging bids, securing vendors and subcontractors, risk management, and the oversight of daily operations.
–Project plans. Needs assessment, scoping, feasibility studies and master planning.
–Pre-construction considerations. Cash-flow analysis, planning logistics, cost estimations, pre-qualifying and selecting subcontractors and land acquisition assistance.
–Architectural designs. Concepting, design development, zoning and compliance reviews, schematic design, and construction documents.
–Commercial furniture solutions. Interior design, ADA compliance, space planning, commercial furnishings, equipment and installation.
One of the most significant benefits of taking a comprehensive approach to a commercial construction project is that everyone works together as a cohesive unit and focuses on the broader picture and not only their individual responsibilities. When the architect, for instance, collaborates with the project manager, potential problems are caught early and can be resolved before they develop into larger problems.
There are lots of moving components in commercial construction and ensuring they all keep progressing is critical. Relying on a contractor that can effectively manage each aspect is essential for the success of your next project!
