Commercial construction encompasses the building of structures intended for use in the private sector.
Overseen by a general contractor, these projects can range from a simple office remodel to the construction of a 30-story high-rise.
Below, we offer more insight into the different types and levels of this kind of project.
Commercial construction covers a multitude of projects. However, common examples include:
2. Medical facilities
3. Retail and grocery stores
4. Shopping malls
6. Manufacturing facilities
7. Colleges and K-12 schools
8. Sports arenas
Though every commercial construction project is unique, all fall into one of three categories: small-scale, medium-scale, and large-scale.
A small-scale project also referred to as a light project usually involves upgrading an existing structure.
For example, a general contractor may refresh a restaurant kitchen with new equipment or install hardwood floors in the dining area. This is the cheapest and most straightforward level of commercial construction.
Comparatively, a medium-scale project encompasses more intensive upgrades to an existing structure.
For example, a general contractor may renovate a vacant retail space into a coffee roastery. Or, a commercial building team may upgrade the layout of a hospital.
Commercial contracting companies also take on large-scale projects. These endeavors require that the building team work with architects and developers to create a new structure.
Examples of large-scale projects include a university dormitory, an apartment complex, and a high-rise office building.
