What challenges did you face with commercial warehouse construction?
When our client wanted to build a commercial warehouse, we had to think about how we were going to take on this job. Although the customer had been doing business with us for over 5 years, they were really picky about which company they worked with on this project, so we needed to ensure that all of their needs were met as much as possible in order to keep them happy and keep them coming back to use our services again in the future! Here are some of the challenges we faced with warehouse construction and how we worked through them.
Commercial Warehouse Construction Challenges
We’ve been in business for over 6 years, and have built dozens of commercial warehouses. There are a few surprises that always pop up during every build. In honor of National Warehouse Safety Month, we’re listing out our top 3 warehouse construction challenges: Poor communication between building departments can delay a project by months, but having a single point of contact can help resolve these issues quickly and efficiently. We make sure to communicate directly with architects and engineers to ensure our timeline stays on track. Miscommunication with clients is another challenge that plagues warehouse builders. Before construction starts, it’s vital to sit down with your client(s) to establish expectations—what are their needs/wants/expectations? What materials will they need access to after construction is complete? Construction should be treated as one big project; otherwise, it can lead to confusion and other issues down the road. Our third warehouse construction challenge is poor weather conditions. A lot of warehouses are being constructed in harsher climates, so it’s important to take climate-specific conditions into account before moving forward with your project.
Why Choose Us For Commercial Warehouse Construction
It’s worth noting that due to its size, commercial warehouse construction costs tend to vary dramatically. The last project we worked on was a three-story complex that cost upwards of $1.5 million to complete, while another nearby business owner recently got her one-story building for less than $200,000.
