Commercial Construction Projects
common sense construction excellence
“The job was completed within budget and on time. With all my other day to day duties, it was very nice to know that I did not have to be worried if our facility was being built correctly.”

Our Focus on Commercial Construction Projects
Our goal is to bring value to our clients and assure that they get what they need both now and in the future. The client knows how they need the facility to perform. We bring the construction expertise to make sure that happens in the best fashion possible. We want repeat business and referrals from more-than-satisfied clients, so we spend a little extra time upfront to make sure we advise you in the best way possible for current and future needs. We consider the best site selection, expandability, aesthetics, flexibility, cost, quality, and timing. We consider those materials and systems that are readily available and allow substitutions so construction can move forward steadily and effectively even during supply chain challenges.
We must ensure all permits are in place, codes followed, owner and staff inputs, and considered and documented. We carefully study the design to be sure we have considered all HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems are energy efficient and make sense in the balance of cost versus budget. In the pre-construction phase, we also consider people flow in terms of employees and customers.
We will engage the best team of craftsmen and develop protocols to create the highest quality, on-time, on-budget outcome. Anticipating challenges and then mitigate those challenges before they occur is critical and saves time, money, and headaches for the client. We push the progress and manage the communication systems required to deliver the desired outcomes.
Every progress meeting leads off with a discussion about safety. We maintain a written safety plan on site. Our project managers are 10-hours or more OSHA certified, meaning they have been independently trained on construction safety and federal regulations. The Shireman team also has CPR and first aid training annually. Safety is not only good for workers; it speeds up the process and preserves the project budget.
Things To Consider
- Consider your customer and their purchasing habits in this new consumer world.
- How can you provide online services to compete with large competitors?
- Consider how to separate employees from one another and from the customers to balance health risks and customer service?
- Research your trade associations to gain insights into future industry trends in the planning phase.
- Maintaining consumer trends may require more inventory to be held on-site.
What potential warehousing needs and options could you need?
- Security systems are becoming more important, not only for potential customer theft but also for employee theft. What are your needs?
- The challenges of recruiting and retaining employees will not improve in the near future. What kind of systems can be employed to reduce depending as much upon employees?
- Consider HVAC design to reduce utility bills.
- Have you planned for ample parking now and in the future?
- Consider your potential to grow space. How could you expand, if necessary, in the future? Make sure you do not put utility access points in the path of new growth.
- Carefully consider your location. Do you need to be closer to your market or your suppliers?
