Archive for building design and construction

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.

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.
