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.

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.

With more and more people seeking ways to be more energy efficient, the idea of energy renovation projects has taken off. Not only can they help minimize the effect you have on the planet, but they can save you money on your utility bills as well. And it’s not always a complete overhaul. Oftentimes, making little changes like switching to different light bulbs or installing new windows can have drastic effects. Every small thing matters, both to your wallet and to the planet.

The Process

Taking on an energy renovation may seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Our team will come out to your location – either commercial or residential – and take a look around. We’ll perform an energy audit and try to determine what inefficiencies would be easiest to fix while saving you the most. Projects mentioned above such as window or light bulb replacement are common, but updating your HVAC system or insulating your property can improve energy efficiency as well.

The Benefits

Scientists everywhere are begging people to try and lessen their carbon footprint. Taking measures like installing solar panels and using a more efficient heating system could even get you a tax break. The federal government, as well as local government, often give stipends to offset installation costs. Not to mention lower overall costs that come with using less energy. Most of all, you’re taking the preemptive steps to minimize your energy use, and you probably won’t even notice.

If you’re doing an energy renovation on a commercial space, you could also reap the benefits of using your newfound sustainability to appeal to customers. More and more regular people are concerned with integrating environmentally friendly practices into their lives, so making these changes can create a competitive advantage for your organization. Whether you’re in it to save money, the planet, or to increase your customer base, our energy renovation team is here to help you meet your goals. For more information or to set up a consultation, call 603-882-1822.

Historical RestorationOur staff of professionals here at Schroeder is well versed in a variety of commercial construction projects. From revamping office space to designing and building entire factories, we have a lot of experience under our belts. Part of this experience comes with appreciation for the arts. We understand the work that goes into building design and construction, and can appreciate when that quality work was done. This appreciation is especially helpful when it comes to the restoration of historic buildings.

How Is Restoration Different?

The choice to take on a restoration project is a challenging one. It often comes with it’s own obstacles  that are very different from your traditional design build. It may be tempting to incorporate all of the newest technology and materials into the building, but that’s not always wise. When it comes to restoring historical buildings, the trick is to upgrade the building to meet all safety and health codes, plus some modern amenities, without losing any historic charm. This means a lot of “undercover” work of sorts. Rather than boast new light fixtures and high tech displays, restoration work typically includes structural repair and more behind the scenes things.

It Can Be Rewarding

It’s not to say that choosing to complete a restoration can’t be rewarding. Transforming a space from something decrepit and unusable into something functional and beautiful is a feat that can’t always be executed. Here at Schroeder Construction Management, our meticulous attention to detail is what makes it so easy to take on these projects. We understand the appeal of keeping a piece of history alive, while also using space in an efficient and safe manner.

To us, maintaining historic structures and turning them into livable space also connects us to our community. Southern New England has so much history to be shared, and we believe it deserves to live on. Projects like the Hunt Memorial Building and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Nashua remind us of the importance of quality building design and construction, and those who built the original buildings should be proud of their work.

Our team of builders and designers work hard on each project, including historical renovations. We enjoy contributing to the history of our community, and hope to make the original builders proud by helping their work live on.

Environmental sustainability has been a hot topic lately across all industries, increasing traction over the last year. Commercial construction is no exception. Sustainability can take many forms and meanings depending on what industry you’re in, but in our world, it usually involves natural resources. At Schroeder, we’re committed to providing our clients with high-quality buildings made from the best materials. But this doesn’t have to come at a cost for the planet. We work to choose building materials that are responsibly sourced and recycled, when possible.

Plan Your Resources

Before taking on a sustainable commercial construction project, you have to analyze how your resources are going to be used. Our team of professionals takes care to make sure we use each site to its full potential and making sure nothing goes to waste. Additionally, our practices minimize the amount of energy we use. Energy conservation reduces the amount of potentially hazardous byproducts in the air and also can be extremely cost effective.

Energy & Water Conservation

In addition to energy conservation, water preservation and using a material in the most efficient way possible is another goal during our projects. Using less water and making sure the water around us is kept free of chemicals and hazardous materials is an easy way to be a more sustainable company. We work hard to not only meet but exceed the environmental standards set by the government when it comes to keeping your water clean. This not only keeps you safe in the immediate future but also prevents using additional energy to remove the chemicals from the water sometime down the line.

Stay Healthy

Once your commercial building is complete, using sustainably sourced materials can also be beneficial for the health of those who frequent the space. In addition to being sourced responsibly, these materials typically contain fewer to no chemicals found in traditional materials. Choosing better materials can be not only beneficial to your physical health, but also your financial health. The local and federal government sometimes gives tax breaks for using more sustainable materials in your construction.

At Schroeder Construction Management, we’re dedicated to designing the commercial building of your dreams. For more information, give us a call at 603-882-1822.

At Schroeder Construction Management, we take safety extremely seriously. With so much potential for disaster when it comes to construction, it’s important to us to that our staff is well versed in all safety protocol, and always has access to appropriate safety equipment. With an accident rate of almost 0, our commercial building services are some of the safest you can find in Southern New Hampshire.

Accident Statistics

In 2014, OSHA reported that one in ten construction workers are injured each year. Additionally, it’s estimated that on any given day, nearly 6,500,000 people work at 252,000 construction sites on any given day. To prevent contributing to this one in ten statistic, we give our employees some of the highest safety training available. A number of our staff are OSHA 30 certified, and we also carry an ISN rating of a B.

How to Stay Safe?

In addition to receiving an above average amount of safety training, we provide our employees with the proper equipment to maintain a safe environment. This includes, but is not limited to, flashlights, hard hats, neon vests, safety glasses, and ear protection. Falls have been proven to be the biggest cause of fatal construction injuries. Employing equipment such as harnesses, anchors, and guard rails minimizes the risk of a fall.

Experience Modification Rate

An Experience Modification Rate, or EMR, is an insurance rating that is used to determine workers’ compensation premiums for businesses. This is determined by the industry we are in (commercial building), as well as how many OSHA recordables are on file for a given year. If a company has an EMR of 1.0, they pay the industry average. Here at Schroeder Construction Management, we are proud of our 0.79 EMR, meaning we have below average OSHA recordables when compared to other construction firms.

We understand our staff are people with families and lives outside of the construction site, and we work hard to make sure they stay safe while on the job. We strive for perfection when it comes to safety, and every project that is completed without incident is a win in our book.

You’ve made your mind up, and it’s time to get that construction project underway. You’re probably very excited to get started, so it’s easy to develop tunnel vision and forget about the smaller details. Before you begin your commercial construction project completed, make sure you go through this checklist and reassure that everything is ready to go.

A Budget

It’s important to consider your budget when undertaking any project, but large commercial construction price tags can easily climb higher and higher if you’re not careful. The professionals at Schroeder will work with you and your team to make sure we meet all of your criteria while staying within your budget.

Supplies

It’s almost impossible to imagine all of the resources that go into building a commercial structure. Concrete, wood, insulation, pipes…the list goes on. Be sure to consider all of the supplies, including time, human resources, and materials,  before you break ground.

Find the Right Management Company

That’s where we come in! Schroeder Construction Management, Inc. is happy to help you manage your construction project from its early planning stages to completion. Finding the best company to handle your needs makes all of the difference.

Check Weather

If the project is outdoors, you need to make sure the weather is appropriate for it. Especially in New England, weather can change on a dime, and the different seasons present various challenges. Make sure you create a reasonable timeline that takes into account weather-related pauses in production.

Space

Arguably the most important thing you need is space. Without the land, you can’t build a large enough commercial space to be successful – you don’t want to be cramped!  Clear out the area, set aside any other supplies, and account for every inch.

Bear these items in mind, and your commercial construction project will be a snap. For all of the management you need to succeed, give Schroeder Construction Management, Inc. a call at (603)-882-1822!

When you start to plan a construction project, you may think you have your ducks in a row and that you’re doing everything right. Unfortunately, we all make mistakes and miss some crucial steps. During commercial construction, it’s imperative to ask yourself: “Have I accounted for everything I need to for this project?”

Often construction workers have a plan in mind, but they sometimes miss a step that’s necessary to complete the project. Whether that piece is a missing permit, improper safety regulations, or an outdated code, it’s hard to remember everything. That’s where Schroeder Construction Management, Inc. comes in.

We Work As a Team

Our team works with construction personnel from start to finish, ensuring that each step in the process is taken care of. We are well-versed in state laws, permits, regulations, and current trends in the construction industry. We’re practically commercial construction encyclopedias that are happy to assist project managers to ensure the best outcome for everyone.

We Stay Up to Date

Things change everyday when it comes to up to date codes, regulations, policies and trends.  Keeping up with these changes is important so you can ensure your project is up to code and done correctly. Our knowledge and management team will file away all these bits of information,  keeping them in our back pocket until we need them.

We Understand Commercial Construction

Commercial construction is unique because it typically involves much larger buildings than residential construction – which means it also comes with its own challenges. It’s imperative that commercial buildings can handle heavier weight loads than residential buildings, and large enough rooms and doorways to accommodate customers.

Schroeder Construction Management, Inc. understands how complicated the construction industry is, and we will do our best to ensure that all of the important steps are taken care of, from beginning to end. To find out more information about what we do, give us a call at (603)-882-1822!

It is all too easy, especially with the accessibility of information on the internet, to be tempted to complete massive home renovations yourself. There are some matters that should not be done on your own, however. Performing do-it-yourself alterations like painting a bedroom or installing a light fixture are one thing, but managing a personal construction project is a 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 know how long projects will take to complete, and how to 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 big – 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. For more information or to set up a meeting, call us at (603)-882-1822!
