Commercial construction is done to build and sell professionally constructed buildings for assembly halls, medical centres, shopping malls, school building, offices, etc. This business varies mainly in the size and scale of operation and here, generally a builder either contracts with a business organisation or any company to construct the building according to their requirements. This type of construction depends largely on business cycle and growth of population.
As the population of a particular area increases, the existing workplaces fail to suffice the demands of the populace. Schools, municipal offices, stores, shops and other offices become all the more occupied, which drives the builders to construct more buildings to meet the increasing demands. As the business increases rapidly, new structures are ordered to provide space for people.
Today, the builders which offer services of commercial construction specialise in many types of structures; some excel in high-rise buildings, while others in hospitals and school buildings.
Clues of success:
· Successful builders keep a steady flow of projects under commercial construction, which allows them to predict the quality and availability of skilled labour.
· This also suggests that raw materials required for building can be obtained at a discounted price from the suppliers who understand that they can count on that particular builder.
· Banks and other financial institutions also like to work with such builders who make their payments on time, and they are always ready to lend money when required.
· A professional builder must never compromise on the quality of the raw materials.
· Lastly, the builder must communicate updates of his projects to everyone, including the workers, contractors, clients, banks, architects and designers.
Other professionals in need:
Not only the builder, but architects are also required to design the commercial build projects. They communicate in detail with the clients and before drafting the layout, they discuss the objective of the client in detail, along with their budget and other needs. However, their duties do not end here. ARCHITECTS & BUILDERS also think about the design, safety and sustainability of the project such as building codes, fire regulations as well as the clauses of federal and state governing bodies. They must be accustomed to computer oriented drafting systems, model buildings and other related technologies.
The US Department of Labour Statistics of 2014 reveals that the annual median income of architects was around 75000$. They also work with other professionals in this field such as civil engineers, planners, landscape architects and most importantly commercial designers.
Interior designers who specialise in commercial design work with customers to fabricate the plan that begins with building the structure or its renovation, and this, particularly involves issues like choice of raw materials, layout and placing of walls, plumbing systems, electricity systems and communicating with other professionals and suppliers besides doing plain decoration.
The resultant information that is collected is required to prepare schemes that are reflected in the construction of the building. These basic plans are plotted in accordance with the needs of the clients and are indispensable to the major construction of the interior space. So it seems that these designs are involved in every aspect of a commercial construction, and a proper design helps to enhance the convenience and safety of the future users.
According to the Bureau of Labour statistics, these designers succeeded to procure the yearly mean salary of 50000$ in the year 2014 and people who are interested in this field have a good prospect with 19% growth in career by the year 2020.
