Whether you need to construct a new warehouse, office building or shopping center, it is important to choose a general contractor with experience in new commercial construction. Although many commercial contractors also have extensive experience with residential renovations, many residential contractors have never undertaken a commercial construction project. At Hilley Construction, we have built an impressive portfolio of new commercial construction projects and have the skills and expertise to handle your project from inception to completion.
To those not involved in the construction trade, it might seem that there is little difference between building a community of homes and building an office complex. However, commercial construction presents different challenges and requires different skill sets than residential construction. Your project is too important to act as a training ground for a general contractor who does not have the experience to give you the best results. The managers and supervisors at Hilley Construction have accrued more than x years of experience in new commercial construction.
One difficulty that many businesses face when they decide to launch a commercial construction project is knowing how to select the best general contractor. You want to select a general contract who has expertise in new commercial construction, not one whose experience has been limited to minor cosmetic remodels. We have completed dozens of new commercial construction projects spanning a wide range of building types.
You want to know something about the general contract and the firm. Hilley Construction has an extensive list of satisfied clients who can vouch for our dependability and the quality of our work.
Commercial construction companies with frequent business name changes can be legitimate and offer quality services, but this can also be a warning sign. Sometimes a contractor can achieve such a poor reputation that the only choice to remain in business is a name change. Hilley Construction has operated under the same name for 10 years.
You need to make sure that the general contractor you choose is fully licensed and that the license has not been suspended. Your contractor should be able to show proof of liability and workers’ compensation insurance. We are in compliance with all licensing and insurance statutes.
For many, the decision of which general contractor to hire for a commercial construction project is based on the quoted cost alone. Although cost can certainly be a major factor, it should not be the only one. Each quote must be evaluated on each element contained within the quote. For example, a lower quote might signal that inferior materials will be used, or that the costs of required permits are not included. Hilley Construction offers competitive prices and we do not practice “lowballing,” which is quoting an unrealistically low price and then charging the client for overruns or items not covered by the contract.
