How Commercial Contractors Build Value in Kelowna’s Construction Boom
This year is seeing several large scale projects cropping up throughout Kelowna. Each one involves countless man hours from a variety of trades to reach completion. Commercial contractors are critical to the success of these projects, as their experience is built upon a keen understanding of sub-trades. Our work involves collaborating with each major area of development and filling the gaps between these specialized labourers to see the project through the processes.
Types of Commercial Construction for Real Estate
There are two types of projects that general contractors often work within: new builds and renovations. Between the two there is a lot of overlap. Depending on the project, renovations can encompass the same work involved in a new build. To this end, a contractor facilitates bringing in and managing the project to keep the project moving along consistently and within the budget.is expansive, and new builds often encompass a large swath of these specializations. Commercial contractors are needed to maintain the transition between these trades and stay on top of the agreed budget.
Contractors for Commercial Construction Projects
In Kelowna, new condominium builds are popping up all over. These projects are invigorated by general contractors that oversee and contribute to the actual construction, from the foundation and framing to the piping and ventilation. Understanding the standards for each of the sub-trades is essential to the balance between the developer’s completed plans and the actual process of construction.
Aside from condominiums, the tech industry is expanding quickly in downtown Kelowna, meaning there is demand for commercial sites and office spaces that offer leasing. These types of buildings are often taking a modern approach to design with ample natural lighting and. To this end, Start to Finish Construction has a strong background in implementing alternative lighting sources, , and adhering to energy-efficient designs and practices.
Renovations of Commercial Housing
. This rapid change reflects the sentiment of many renters and homebuyers — the people want a higher quality space to live in, and that means making significant changes to aging property. The value of older homes is falling substantially as they neglect renovations, and unless you own a home in Vancouver, where the land is worth far more than the building, then it is worth considering the cost/benefit of renovations.
Commercial spaces are no different in this regard. With all of the new construction happening across Kelowna, competition is heating up for property owners that have neglected sprucing up their land for long periods of time. For this reason, it is worthwhile to look into the options available for commercial renovations that can build value, reduce monthly expenses (often through eco-efficiency), and improve quality of life for occupants.
Over the year, we are sure to see upgrades and renovations in many of the condominiums and commercial properties that cover Kelowna.
