As a Milwaukee, WI, commercial property owner or a developer, having a great place to build is only the first step in moving a project from concept to actualization. Working with an architect and designer to turn your concept into a set of drawing and 3-D renderings is the next.
Hiring a general contractor, to then turn that drawing into a reality is the third step. Just like each step before it, property owners and developers need to find a Milwaukee WI construction company that offers the expertise, experience and a proven track record of getting jobs done on time and on budget.
All types of commercial construction are not the same. A general contractor that is used to building shopping malls and retail outlets is not necessarily a good match for a medical facility project or to construct a multi-story office building.
Some of the larger general contractors throughout the Milwaukee, WI area have teams of managers that have specialized expertise. These companies may have extensive experience in all types of commercial construction, but they rely on teams of managers on-site that are highly experienced in the particular type of construction.
Safety and Compliance Record
While many bids are evaluated by total project cost, failing to consider the construction company’s reputation for safety on the job as well as their ability to comply with all building codes and regulations are also critical factors.
Failure to comply with building codes or cutting corners with cheap subcontracted services not only creates problems with quality control on the project, but it can turn out to be very costly and dangerous.
Finding a quality contractor is as important as choosing the right property and the right architect. It is also important to research past projects by the company and discuss your expectations long before a final decision on the contractor is made.
