Frances PovloskiOwner of Beachside Benefits and Wealth Strategies

As a business and building owner, I find that my time is limited. Brittany, with Emerald C’s Development was able to work with my hectic schedule and never seemed to be fazed by the difficulty of reaching me. She did all the leg work and made last minute changes that to me meant everything; all the while keeping the project on schedule and done on time.

How do I choose the right general contractor?

Always remember that not all general contractors are alike, especially when it comes to commercial construction. When you are choosing the right general contractor for your building project, there are a number of qualities to search for. First, it is best to find a contractor to who is extensively experienced in commercial construction specifically. Along with the right amount of experience, it is always smart to do your research to see what past clients have to say about their experiences.

When should I hire my general contractor?

It is always best to hire your general contractor and construction team early in the process to ensure that your building project will be completed on time and on budget.

Keep in mind that hiring a general contractor will take a significant amount of stress of your plate and allow you to focus on your business, so hiring sooner than later is always recommended.

What is commercial construction?

Commercial construction covers all the elements of the development of public and infrastructure building projects. This process can involve the designing, renovating and building of commercial structures of all kinds. Commercial buildings can include places like restaurants, retail centers, sports and fitness facilities, medical centers, retail stores, corporate high-rise, business structures, hospitality, and much more.

How should I plan for my commercial building construction?

When it comes commercial building construction planning, there are 3 important steps that every business should take to ensure a smooth and successful process. For starters, after you have chosen the site where your building project will take place, you then need to work with experienced engineers and architects to develop the site and building plan. Second, it is important to get an accurate estimate of the project’s finance and total cost to ensure you are working within your budget. Finally, you will hand over your project to a professional general contractor to legally bind everything in a valid contract.

One of the greatest benefits of working with Emerald C’s Development is that we are a full-service construction company and licensed General Contractor. This means that everything you need for your commercial construction project will be in one spot. We provide our customers with a range of construction services including Pre-Construction, General Contracting, Design/Build, and Value Engineering to help with projects from start to finish.

What are the phases of a commercial construction project?

There are 3 main phases of every commercial construction project. The first phase is known as pre-construction – this happens during the completion of planning and gives you reliable estimates before the final construction documents are available. Next is the construction phase. During this time, it is important to stay on budget, on time and avoid any major mishaps that may arise. The last phase is known as post-construction – this is a time to go over any final details and wrap up the building phase so that you can now begin running your business.
