Questions to Ask Your Commercial Construction Company


If you’re in the market for a new commercial construction project, it’s important to do your research and ask the right questions. By asking the right questions, you can get a better idea of what the construction company is capable of, and whether they are the best fit for your project. Here are four questions to get you started.

What Is Your Experience With Projects Similar To Mine?

When considering hiring a commercial construction company for your project, it’s important to ask about their experience in similar projects to yours. Let’s say you need a medical office built, but the construction company you’re looking to hire doesn’t have experience in medical buildings. This would be a major consideration in your decision. Expertise in project management for your specific project will determine the quality in your finished building and overall experience with the company.

If the company doesn’t have specific experience in your project, ask if they have stories of projects that were similar in scope or complexity.

Do You Have a Portfolio?

Next to experience in similar projects, asking about the company’s portfolio is another major consideration. It is always a good idea to ask about the company’s portfolio before working with them to develop a sense of the scope of projects they’re able to build.

Another great reason to ask to see a portfolio is that you can get a better sense of what a finished building looks like, which is great insight. The more projects a company has completed, the better. This factor should be considered along with their experience in similar tasks to ensure that they will deliver high-quality work for your project too!

Do You Have References from Past Clients?

When you hire a commercial construction company, you want to be sure that they are professionals who will do a great job and stand behind their work. One of the best ways to gauge a company’s credibility and professionalism is by looking at their references and relationships with past clients.

If the company has solid references and positive relationships with past clients, that’s a huge indication that they are a reliable and trustworthy business. It also shows that they are committed to providing excellent customer service.

When you’re making such an important decision, you want to be sure that you’re working with a company who is experienced and reputable. Checking references and talking to past clients is a great way to get peace of mind and make sure you’re hiring the right company.

How Do You Ensure Timely Project Completion?

Time is money! Building projects can be complex and expensive, so it’s important to make sure they’re completed on time. Unfortunately, delays are all too common in the construction industry.

A variety of factors can contribute to delays, including bad weather, material shortages, and disagreements among the project team. That’s why it’s so important to have a clear plan and timetable for the project, and to make sure everyone involved is committed to meeting the deadline. By working together and keeping an eye on the clock, your project can be completed on time and on budget.
