Are you planning a commercial building project but are not sure where to start? That’s understandable, as commercial construction can be an overwhelming process.
Regardless of the scale and scope of your project, you need a reliable team of expert commercial contractors that are up to the task.
Here at Elite Building Contractors, we’re proud to say that our primary goal is to bring our clients’ building ideas to life. We also want to shine a light on the process to give you a better sense of all the commercial building services we provide.
The Stages of Commercial Construction Process
Whether you’re remodelling, expanding, or building a brand-new commercial building, it can be challenging to see the big picture.
How does that brilliant idea in your mind become a shiny new commercial building in a matter of months?
The secret is dividing the project into several stages and giving each one sufficient time and attention. Here’s an overview of the step-by-step construction process.
Planning and Development
It might sound like an overstatement, but the planning and development stage is of paramount importance. Elite Building Contractors provide project planning services for both residential and commercial properties.
We’ll pre-design the building or facility and talk to the leading architect about everything. This stage is vital because if we don’t get it right, none of the other stages will matter.
It’s also essential to evaluate the duration of each task and the necessary resources. Failing to do so can lead to an inaccurate schedule and often the wrong budget estimate too.
Here we’re talking about the schematic designs and basic drawings that will iron out the details regarding the scale and location of the commercial building.
Our team will also consider the building’s orientation concerning the utility connections to make sure the project is entirely feasible. This phase includes making sure that all the building regulations are in order.
During this stage, the Elite Building Contractor team talks to the owner and waits for the notice to proceed. We’ll also receive a complete list of materials required and talk to all the vendors.
Before we commence with construction, we investigate the building site one more time to make sure there are no potential complications.
Everyone involved with this stage has a different role assigned to them. The project manager is the point person for the entire project team.
In the procurement phase of commercial construction, every item from the list of materials is purchased. The owner and the construction company write an agreement known as a Purchase Order.
The goal here is to ensure that every procured product meets the specs and agreed price. Elite Building Contractors will always make sure that clients get only the best materials at a fair price.
Before the ground is broken, we establish working hours, materials storage, and quality control. Typically, the site excavation ensues along with the installation of underground utilities.
Steel erection, concrete pouring, roofing, framing, and both interior and exterior work are all a part of the construction stage.
The project manager and the official inspector will oversee each of these actions. This phase of the construction process is over once the commercial building is done.
Once the construction is over, you might be in a hurry to move into your commercial space. However, there are several steps we have to take before that’s possible.
The post-construction stage includes a final walkthrough of all the items on the punch list. Is there a broken light fixture or space that requires painting?
These are only some of the required post-construction tasks for commercial builders. London-based business owners can install equipment or add furnishings after we’re done with the thorough post-construction phase.
