What are the steps in a commercial renovation?
First and foremost, develop a plan for your commercial renovation process. Next, consult with contractors to get bids. Remember that a lower bid might not translate into the quality you might require for your project. After choosing the contractor you feel comfortable with, you will move toward selection of materials. Your contractor should have the relationships with vendors who can help select quality products that are right for your commercial needs. The demolition phase involves removal and disposal of any materials no longer necessary. Once that is complete, construction can begin. Finally, a thorough clean-up will take place before your freshly renovated space is ready to use.
How do you renovate a commercial building?
A commercial building takes more time than other projects because there are many factors to consider. There needs to be a solid plan in place to be sure the project is finished on time, with little-to-no disruption to your every day business. It is also crucial that you work with a remodeling contractor that has experience and is willing to partner with you to meet the expectations for your renovation project.
What should I ask a commercial contractor?
Asking about their experience is a crucial factor in commercial work. Make sure they’ve been in the business for a while. Don’t hesitate to ask for a portfolio. Contractors who’ve been in the business for a long time have survived the challenges in the industry.
What should I look for in a commercial contractor?
A good contractor will always communicate with you. They’ll make time to guarantee everything is in order and will always consult you first. They also pay close attention to detail, even on large-scale projects. You’ll also want to ask for some references. Former clients will provide you more detail about the contractor and whether or not you can trust them with your remodel or renovation.
What questions should you ask a general contractor?
The two most important things to ask are if they have licenses and insurance. Both assure you of quality work and financial help if a problem occurs. Without them, you could lose more than your money if the job goes south.
Over the years, Painter Bros teams have assisted with the remodels of restaurants, office buildings, retail stores, auto dealerships, country clubs, hotels, and more. From design-builds to one-off designs to standardized designs, we always deliver the finished product on time and on budget. All commercial remodeling jobs involve many moving parts. Our contractors are experienced with repairs, remodels, and renovations of all kinds.
Here is what you should know before beginning your project:
The more detailed your plan, the easier it will be to remodel without too much disruption to your business’ operation. Make sure you know what specific work you want. List your budget and what materials you’d like.
From your plan, you can consult with different contractors who’ll give you an estimated price. You should note that low prices do not always guarantee a quality product or job well done. Always look at experience and quality first when considering bids.
When choosing a commercial general contractor, you will want to factor in a few things. First, they should respond within 24 hours and take the time to discuss your needs. Next, reputable commercial contractors should have all the proper insurance and licenses. Finally, have any potential commercial contractors provide customer reviews and understand the types and brands of products they use. Experience and quality are key in this business.
Material Selection and Purchase
The contractor will be responsible for finding the best-priced materials and purchasing them. Reputable commercial contractors use high-quality and state-of-the-art materials. They have a good relationship with their vendors and can access the suitable building materials, flooring, paints, and coatings for your property.
Demolition will be the first part of any remodel. It’s about carefully removing parts that are no longer needed, while minimizing the dust and debris. You also want to be sure to avoid a loss in productivity or customer satisfaction as you remodel your business space. Make sure you have a demolition and disposal plan or at least have the contractor outline one.
Construction will take up the bulk of the schedule. A professional team of commercial contractors can work around your business operations to avoid any loss of productivity or revenue. Whether it is a bathroom project, office space renovation, cafeteria or retail wall, be sure that everything from product and paint preparation to clean up and disposal is well-coordinated, so you get the results you are looking for.
As the project is underway, our construction supervisors ensure the quality of the delivered services are ideal for the customer from start to finish. During the process control inspections, the site foreman is responsible for corrections and amendments to establish immaculate results.
Clean Up and Finish
A remodel is bound to create some mess along the way. Nevertheless, experienced commercial contractors will always conduct a thorough clean-up once a commercial remodel is complete. They should be equipped with safety measures such as placing material coverings on office furniture and floors. Your new space should be something you are proud to show off once a remodel is completed.
