A commercial construction professional can come in and do accurate estimates, including the costs and time required for completion. Because they are familiar with this kind of construction, you will know that what they say is true, and they will try to stick with the original bids as closely as possible. Professionals also know exactly what the building codes and local ordinances are, and will get all the permits necessary. They also know which subcontractors to hire, and these costs will all be included in the original price, so you don't have to worry about paying extra.
You also need to find a contractor that specializes in commercial applications, not just some basic remodel company. While a basic remodel company is great for most residential applications, they just don't have the experience or the manpower to handle the kinds of commercial building projects you're looking for. They won't know the specific codes that apply only to commercial properties, and this can bring you problems later on.
When looking for a professional commercial construction contractor, there are some things to watch for. One is that they have to be licensed, insured as well as bonded. They have to have experience in building for the type of business you have. They also have to be aware that you may be open while they are working, so they have to be able to take the necessary safety precautions, clean up after themselves each day, and haul away any debris. They also have to be done in a timely manner, because the longer it takes to do the job, the more business you are losing.
They should also be able to perform all tasks right the first time, because if they don't do it right, you will either have to have them come back, or hire someone to do the job right, wasting both your time and money. It is a good idea when you see a company that you like, you do some research before hiring them. Call and talk to them, ask many questions, and make sure that they can provide references. Make sure that you call these references as well, this is the only way you are going to really know how good they are. Another good idea is to call the local Better Business Bureau and see if they are in good standing with the community.
Make sure that you get estimates, and when you have chosen the right company, go back over everything in detail, taking as many notes as possible. When you and the company have decided on everything that is needed, make sure you go over the contract carefully to make sure that there are no unexpected changes. With a properly planned commercial project by a local design build firm you can rest assured your project will go smoothly.
