What Is Commercial Construction?

A commercial construction contractor handles a broad range of projects over the course of a career. A wide range of expertise is required to successfully handle each type of project. Commercial building projects can include offices, manufacturing plants, medical centers, and retail shopping centers. These projects and businesses vary in size and scale and each is unique. But commercial building projects can be generally categorized as small, medium, or large-scale.

Small-Scale Commercial Projects

Small-scale commercial construction is also known as light commercial construction. These types of building projects usually involve rebranding or refreshing the look of a structure. Small-scale projects often focus on renovating the interior spaces, such as adding new floors or reconfiguring their technological configuration.

Medium-Scale Commercial Projects

Many companies aren’t ready to move to a new location but still wish to restructure, expand, remodel, or redesign their existing spaces to give them a fresh, new look. These types of medium-scale commercial projects represent a cost-effective way to achieve significant results. They address how a business needs or wants to restructure, expand, or redesign. Commercial renovation and remodeling are often medium-scale commercial construction projects.

Large-Scale Commercial Projects

Unlike small-scale and medium-scale construction projects, large-scale projects involve ground-up construction. Examples of large-scale building projects include high-rise buildings, warehouses, and dams. These projects involve complex details in coordinating budget, labor, and scheduling and ensuring that the project complies with local building codes and ordinances. A general contractor must possess a high level of expertise and diligence to execute these complex projects successfully.
