Building Design and Construction: The Benefits of Hiring The Professionals

building design and construction

It is all too easy, especially with the accessibility of information on the internet, to be tempted to complete a massive project on your own. When it comes to building design and construction, it’s safe to say this is one area where experts are a must. Performing do-it-yourself alterations like painting a bedroom or installing a tile floor is one thing, but managing a personal construction project is an entirely different situation. It is always better to call a construction management company and rely on the experts when your construction project can quickly get out of control.

More Resources

Employing a construction management firm opens doors and connections that you could never have by completing the project yourself. Our reputation and experience in the industry means we have experienced staff and a fleet of vendors to get high-quality materials. The resources behind us here at Schroeder can turn your project into a work of art.

Precision

A construction manager’s experience means they understand how long projects will take to complete and plan each step to the highest level of efficiency strategically. This allows his team to multitask without sacrificing the attention to detail it’ll take to get everything right.

Proper Precautions

When you hire a team of professionals, they will take care of each detail. All of the necessary paperwork, permits, and other miscellaneous items will be taken care of. You will be sure the process is legal, proper, and well done. If you were to try to complete all the proper precautions on your own for the first time, there’s a chance you’ll miss something significant – halting your project.

Less Stress

Doing a construction project all by yourself is not a small challenge. Although you’re motivated and ready to go in the beginning, this eagerness will likely wear off when the tedious tasks start to pile up. Hiring a construction manager alleviates this stress and allows you to complete the project of your dreams without having to screw in 30 light switch covers by hand.

Even if the project is small, it can quickly spiral out of control without guidance. Professionals here at Schroeder Construction Management will work with you to keep your project on track from the initial building design and construction phases.

4 of the Most Famous Steel Buildings Around the World

If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that steel buildings are serious business. Steel is the foundation for some of the tallest, most impressive structures worldwide. Because our team is devoted to all aspects of design-build, we’re taking this moment to give credit where credit is due.

In this article, we’re looking at four of the most impressive steel buildings ever built. While, of course, there are several more, these four have captured the attention of millions and remain standing to this day.

Eiffel Tower

Possibly one of the most famous structures worldwide, located in the heart of Paris, the Eiffel Tower is hands-down impressive. Built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition, this iconic landmark took a mere 2 years, 2 months, and 5 days to complete. Quite the accomplishment given the time and equipment on hand.

The design of the Eiffel Tower was a combined effort of 50 engineers and designers who began work in January of 1887. On March 31, 1889, and 7,300 tons of iron and 2.5 million rivets later, the project was complete. Standing  1,050 feet above ground level, the Eiffel Tower held the title of the world’s tallest structure for 42 years.

Empire State Building

Another household name among icon structures is the Empire State Building located in New York City. Designed in 1931, this structure was one that was undoubtedly ahead of its time. Standing at 1.454 feet, this 103-story skyscraper held the title of the world’s tallest structure for nearly 40 years, but took under one year to construct!

Willis (Sears) Tower

If you’ve ever traveled to Chicago, the Sears Tower, also referred to as the Willis Tower, is one that can’t be missed. Standing 1,450 feet high, construction of the 110-story building began in 1970 and took three years to reach completion. Featuring a steel-framed bundled-tube construction method, building the tower took the efforts of over 2,000 construction workers and 76,000 tons of steel.

Burj Khalifa

Standing as the world’s tallest man-made structure since its opening in 2009, the Burj Khalifa is located in Dubai. With 163 floors, the building was also designed with a steel-framed bundled-tube construction method. Upon completion, the final calculations leave the structure standing 2,716.5 feet with over 4,400 shorts ton; 3,900 long tons of structural steel, concrete, and glass paneling.

As you can see, the construction of steel buildings is no joke! When properly planned and executed, a steel structure is one of the most reliable solutions. However, it takes a team of dedicated experts to design and successfully implement such a project with the precision required. At Schroeder Construction Management, you’ll find just that.

Thus, significantly benefitting not only their operating expenses but also our environment.

  • Conserve and restore natural resources
  • Reduce waste streams
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Create and shape markets promoting a Green future
  • Enhance occupant comfort and health

Building Design and Construction: The Benefits of Metal Buildings

As a design-build construction manager, Schroeder Construction Management Inc. (SCMI) has handled plenty of extensive construction projects. The advantage of working with a company like ours is that your construction project is overseen by one entity from project inception to completion versus working with multiple sub-contractors who are not privy to every aspect of the overall project. SCMI can effectively and professionally coordinate each phase of construction. This fact serves to eliminate common project obstacles like miscommunication and micro-managing. From building design and construction, we work hands-on to ensure our clients that projects are being constructed professionally, on budget, and on schedule.

One aspect of commercial construction that we excel in is metal buildings. For example, our team was responsible for a 10,000 sq. ft. addition to the Airex Filter Corp. building in Hudson, NH. During this project, we were able to save time and money utilizing CECO Building Systems software to pre-engineer the process.

Staying Green While Working with Metal

When undergoing a commercial building project, owners have several material options to choose from. Here at Schroeder Construction, steel and metal buildings are our preference for several different beneficial reasons. Here are just a few of those reasons:

  • Durability

  • Strength

  • Cost-efficient

  • Quicker installation to save money and keep schedules on time

 

However, aside from the above features, metal buildings hold one significant benefits over other materials; they have beneficial environmental aspects as well. Unlike other materials, metal can be recycled and reused many times without losing any of its inherent strength and malleability. By opting for metal, you’re leaving minimal environmental impact. Here are a few other considerations to keep in mind when choosing metal:

  • Conserving natural resources

  • Reducing solid waste

  • Improving air quality

  • Improving water quality

  • Fewer repairs

  • Less maintenance

 

In a world where technology is advancing at exponential rates, the importance of recycling is continuously becoming ever more apparent. Building with metal is an undertaking that helps to ensure the health of our natural environment while producing incredibly durable structures in far more time-efficient ways.

 

If you have an upcoming commercial construction project that will involve several layers of management, save yourself time and money by contacting our team at 603-882-1822. Here at Schroeder Construction Management, we’ll provide you with professional building design and construction that will execute your project with ease.

Design-Build Construction: Why You Should Hire Schroeder

design-build

In the field of commercial construction, when you want something done right, you either do it yourself or hire a company with the expertise and experience to get the job completed with accuracy. For instance, it makes sense to work with a company that specializes in the design-build method of construction. If you’re not familiar with this concept, it merely means that one entity, such as Schroeder Construction, handles all phases of the construction process.

 

From the inception of your project, through the design stage, and onto the construction and completion, Schroeder Management will make the process seamless. By working within the design-build construction methodology, you’ll have the most efficient way to manage and complete a project.

A few benefits of design-build are:

  • Elimination of miscommunications between sub-contractors and middlemen

  • Projects remain on, or under allotted budgets

  • Reduction of overlapping cost when working with multiple designers or contractors

  • Save time and money for the owner

  • Owners are enabled with the ability to build a robust one-on-one relationship throughout the entire construction process with one primary contact.

Being part of the design phase of construction allows our team to Schroeder Construction Management to get a clear and concise overview of how a construction project is going to go before the first tool is picked up. Using state of the art commercial construction design software, we can plan out how every square inch of a construction project should go in order to surpass customer expectations and to remain on budget.

Sully’s Superette Renovations

An excellent example of how we utilized the design-build method of construction is when we significantly renovated Sully’s Superette in Goffstown, NH. Working on both the exterior and interior of the structure, our team was able to seamlessly and efficiently remove and relocate the store’s front entrance. However we didn’t stop there. Further construction included building the store a new entrance vestibule, as well as touch up interior renovations. From there our team finished the exterior of the building with faux stone and vinyl siding.

The result was a spectacular success with the store owners. The construction process went flawlessly, and we were able to remain on budget and finish the project within the allotted time frame. These renovations are a testament to the effectiveness of the design-build method of construction as well as the importance of using the most up to date design software available in the construction field today.

The Convenience of Choosing a Design Build Organization

Designing and building a structure from the beginning takes a lot of effort. Each step requires serious attention to detail and the forethought to predict and solve any problems that may occur in the next step. If you haven’t already, considering a design build construction firm, like the professionals here at Schroeder, can drastically cut down on the time it takes to complete an already lengthy process.

 

No Miscommunication

A design build construction organization works by keeping all aspects of the process, including both designing the building and constructing it, inhouse. It allows people within the organization to collaborate and decide the best course of action. By going with a design firm and build company separately, you open the doors for miscommunication or mistakes. These can set back your timeline and even increase how much the project will cost you.

 

Fewer “Go Betweens”

On the same token, streamlining the process to one company minimizes the number of people involved. You eliminate the “too many cooks in the kitchen” dilemma and can focus on the opinions and ideas of those who know the project best. Also, you won’t have to go back and forth between different points of contact to get a question answered. By choosing a firm that does it all, you’ll only ever have to make one call to receive updates and information on the progress of your property.

 

Jack of All Trades

Here at Schroeder, our design build teams are curated groups of individuals who each have a specialty. That means that during each step of the process, you’ll have an expert available to recognize any potential problems and to suggest solutions. If you address each step individually, you might find yourself back at square one if something goes wrong. For example, the floorplan you designed may create a problem when it comes to installing electrical, and you don’t notice until the property build is well underway. By choosing a firm that does it all, we can address this problem before it becomes an issue.

 

Choosing a design build construction organization like the professionals here at Schroeder can streamline the process of building a new property for you. We’ll meticulously plan each detail to make sure the space will work perfectly for your needs. For more information or to speak with a design build specialist, call 603-882-1822.

Why Choose Metal Buildings?

If you’re in the market for a new commercial building, there’s no doubt you’ve been bombarded with decisions lately. Where are you going to build? How much square footage do you need? What kind of material is it going to be? Here at Schroeder Construction, we want to help you make the most informed choices and create a property that’s conducive to your needs. We specialize in commercial construction, especially metal buildings, and we can help decide if it’s for you.

Easy to Maintain

Metal buildings are popular for commercial use due to their ability to retain temperature. Whether you need to keep the building hot or cold, the temperature is less likely to falter with the weather outside. They are great at retaining heat, which means cost savings for you when it comes to utility costs. Better yet, your energy savings could be so significant that the government rewards you with a tax break for being so environmentally friendly!

Quick Build

Choosing metal over other materials can also translate to cost savings when it comes to building costs. They are easier and faster to build than traditional builds, so you won’t have to experience significant downtime or high labor costs. The pieces of metal are prefabricated to fit together, so they only need to be put together like a puzzle on site.

Customizable & Durable

Another perk of using metal buildings compared to other building materials is how customizable it is. People immediately think about steel sheds or barns, the design of a metal building is almost entirely up to you. From skylights and windows to exterior covers to make the property look brick, you can get whatever look you want in your new metal building.

Technology today has come a long way when it comes to construction processes and building materials. Metal buildings can be used for a variety of uses, is it right for you? Call 603-882-1822 to speak with a professional here at Schroeder Construction.
