Getting down into the very boules of a building can be a little too up close and personal for most people. But if you are reading this, you aren’t most people. You are most likely a commercial business owner or one of our own- a construction loving specialist or an unexplained phenomena- the type who has lots of time to ‘google.’ You are all welcome here, even if you did ‘google’ (confession: we all google). Now, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and delve into today’s topic- understanding the remodeling and renovation process for your workplace. In other words, what does a commercial remodel look like for you while you are trying to carry on ‘business as usual,’ while there is the less than melodious thudding of a nail gun or the conversation killing hiss of an air compressor?
We will now allow the brilliant minds of Fulmin Lamb Construction to answer this most important inquiry.
In this style of remodeling (the style where normal business operations are underway at the same time as a renovation), our contractors have procedures in place to reduce the exposure and impact of construction and renovation work as it happens around you. To minimize the interruption of your business, we will work with you to create a schedule that suits your company needs. Finishing out retail centers and other commercial remodels while they are still “a place of business,” is absolutely doable.
Well, what does this renovation process look like if you are NOT attempting to continue your normal business out of your shop? We’re glad you asked. For starters, the construction work needing to be done can be completed much faster. The construction crews will still be adhering to a schedule, but it will all be their show. Let that nail gun or air compressor thud or hiss as loudly as it likes on this ticket.
