Whether you're building a completely new business from the ground up or reimagining an existing brand to match your new vision, BUILD IT offers a fully integrated approach to commercial construction and commercial renovation services. We'll work together to create a functionally sound, stand-out space that holds true to your business's mission.
What is commercial construction?
As the name implies, commercial construction and commercial renovation are all about building for businesses – something BUILD IT has done for hundreds of North America's best brands. This includes any kind of space that will eventually be leased or sold in the private sector, including businesses like restaurants, retail stores, offices, medical, manufacturing centres and more. Over the last decade, BUILD IT has completed projects in many of these industry sectors, with a special expertise in branded restaurant and retail environments.
The BUILD IT approach to commercial construction
It begins with development planning. We'll guide your business through site evaluation and planning, scheduling, risk mitigation strategies, and permit acquisition to ensure all the critical groundwork is laid. Next, we move into the design phase to understand what aesthetic values your company represents, and how they can match up with the functional requirements of your business. Once a plan is finalized, we'll move into on-site construction led by our integrated team of builders, millworkers, and in-house specialists.
How to choose the right commercial construction company
Commercial construction and commercial renovation jobs can require significant investments – so it's important you choose the right contractor to get the job done. One of the biggest evaluating factors should be your selected contractor's in-house capabilities. In other words, how much of the job – from site evaluation to design and physical construction – will they be able to handle themselves, and how much of it will they need to subcontract to other experts? Without a full-service provider like BUILD IT, it's not uncommon for clients to require dozens of different teams to get the job done. However, we're able to streamline this process thanks to our wide-ranging team of in-house talent – which often leads to faster schedules, stronger teamwork, and more cost-efficiencies for our clients.
Another important consideration is the past experience and portfolio of completed jobs that match up to your business. Over the last decade, BUILD IT has delivered high quality environments for some of the biggest brands in North America, across several industry verticals including hospitality, retail, office, and medical.
Commercial construction vs. commercial renovation
Whether you're launching a brand new business or retooling your existing operation, BUILD IT will help you design and construct a commercial environment that draws customers inside. Ideally, we're brought in by clients during the early stages of planning so we can understand your brand's values and visions – especially if you're launching a new business. We often refer to these as “large scale” jobs, which are built from the ground up, literally and figuratively speaking.
Commercial renovation jobs, while often simpler in scope, are equally important to perfect since they hinge on a builder's ability to reconfigure existing spaces and align with brand-specific design standards. It's important to work with engineers and architects to understand the structural components involved and how they're able to safely adapt. BUILD IT facilitates this process by connecting you to our internal team of experts, overseen by a dedicated project manager who will coordinate all the moving pieces.
