When it comes time to build or renovate a commercial space, business owners have a lot of decisions to make. One of the most important is selecting a construction company. It’s critical to choose a reliable, experienced, and reputable company that will complete the project on time and within budget. Today, Neenan Archistruction® shares four tips to help you find a reliable commercial construction company you can trust.

The first step is to do your research. Ask friends, family, and colleagues for recommendations of local contractors they’ve worked with. Search online, check online reviews, and look for companies that have done similar projects to the one you need completed. For example, if your business needs a new medical office building, research companies with experience in commercial construction or healthcare architecture. Make sure to ask questions about the company’s past projects, such as timelines, budgets, and any challenges that arose. This will help you get a sense of the company’s capabilities and how they handle potential problems.
The second step is to meet with the team. Once you’ve narrowed down your list of potential contractors, set up meetings with their team. This will give you a chance to see if the company is a good fit for you. Be sure to ask questions about the team’s experience, their approach to construction, and how they plan to handle any challenges that may arise. You’ll also want to ask to see their portfolio of work. Additionally, it’s also important to get a sense of the company’s culture and see if it aligns with your own values. Contact Neenan to schedule a consultation with our team, and learn more about our company culture.
The third step is to get quotes. Once you’ve selected a few companies you’re interested in, ask them for bids. This will help you get an idea of how much the project will cost and what your budget needs to be. It’s important to note that these bids are just estimates, and the final cost will be determined after you’ve selected a contractor.
The fourth and final step is to ask about permits and warranties. Every construction project needs a permit, so be sure to ask the potential contractor if they will take care of this step or if it is your responsibility. It’s also important to ask about warranties, as these can be invaluable in the case of a problem.
