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.

If construction of steel buildings is in your future, we are your solution. Contact Schroeder Construction Management today for more information (603) 882-1822.

commercial construction management

Environmental sustainability is a hot topic lately across all industries, increasing traction over the last year. Commercial construction is no exception. As one of the most reputable commercial construction management companies, our team at Schroeder Construction is delving into this topic headfirst.

Sustainability can take many forms and meanings, depending on what industry you’re involved in. However, in our world, it generally involves natural resources. At Schroeder, we’re committed to providing our clients with high-quality buildings made from the best materials. Unlike other companies, we realize that this commitment doesn’t have to come at a cost for the planet. Our team takes precautions to choose building materials that are responsibly sourced and recycled when possible.

Plan Your Resources

Before taking on a sustainable commercial construction management project, you have to analyze how your resources will be utilized. At Schroeder, our team takes time to ensure we use each site to its fullest potential, and that nothing goes to waste. Additionally, our practices minimize energy usage.

Energy conservation reduces the amount of potentially hazardous byproducts released into the air. Further, this type of awareness can also be extremely cost-effective.

Energy & Water Conservation

In addition to energy conservation, water preservation, and using materials in the most efficient way possible is another goal during our projects. Using less water and ensuring the water around us is kept free of chemicals and hazardous materials is an easy way to become 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, every detail of every aspect is considered. These precautions not only keep you safe in the immediate future but also prevent using additional energy to remove chemicals from the water.

Staying Healthy

Once your commercial building is complete, using sustainably sourced materials is beneficial for the health of those who frequent the space. In addition to being sourced responsibly, these materials typically contain fewer to no chemicals which are found in traditional materials. Choosing cleaner materials can be beneficial to your physical health, and also your financial portfolio. The local and federal governments often supply tax breaks for companies using sustainable materials and energy conservation methods.

At Schroeder Construction Management, we’re dedicated to designing the commercial building of your dreams. For more information on our commercial construction management service, contact us at 603-882-1822.

At Schroeder Construction Management, Inc., we place a high emphasis on the customer experience by producing results that surpass the highest of expectations. Of course, this means our team effectively communicates with each client throughout the entire building design and construction process. However, to reach this goal, it also means that we’ll go to extreme lengths to ensure every project is finished in an affordable and timely manner. One way we accomplish this is by utilizing Ceco Building Systems.

As an authorized Ceco builder, we have access to some of the highest quality, most durable, and extremely customizable prefabricated building materials in the industry. Ceco Building Systems offers our builders and designers pre-engineered framing systems. These frames, as well as panel systems, are made of steel that works together perfectly to expedite the construction process in its entirety. Our partnership with Ceco Building Systems allows the design and construction to become a far more streamlined process. Instead of framing a building on-site, the pre-engineered building materials that Ceco provides come ready to construct as a whole.

Exceptional Results

When you are looking for a durable, resilient, and environmentally friendly metal building, industry experience and reach matter. From building conception to completion, our team is an experienced construction management company that oversees every aspect of the process. Design build reduces the overlapping costs of working separately with a designer and General Contractor. Not only will you save time and money, but you’ll have peace of mind. This type of partnership allows the building owner straight access and clear communication ensuring a strong relationship throughout the entire construction process.

 

Founded in 2005, Schroeder Construction Management offers a variety of construction services for every need and requirement. From design build construction to energy and historic preservation, our team has the experience and expertise you’ve been searching for.

building design and construction

In a world that is more aware of the human effects on the environment than ever before, creating buildings through sustainability is imperative. At Schroeder Construction Management, we take great pride in our ability to offer our customers with building design and construction solutions that are energy efficient. Thus, significantly benefitting not only their operating expenses but also our environment.

As a professional construction management company, our team oversees every aspect of your project to provide you with a finished product that surpasses all expectations. From the initial consultation to design, execution, to completion of both large and small projects, we are one entity with the ability to ensure that every step of construction is completed on time.

Schroeder Construction applies this perspective to each project we manage, especially those having to do with energy efficiency. Renovating buildings so that they are more energy-efficient provides building owners with a variety of benefits. Below is a brief listing of a few of those benefits:

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

Furthermore, Green buildings create a less significant impact on our environment as well. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, buildings account for 39% of U.S. energy use, 12% of U.S. water consumption, 68% of U.S. electricity consumption, and 38% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions.

When you work with Schroeder Construction Management to undergo energy renovations, your carbon footprint becomes much smaller while saving a great deal of money on energy costs as well. We are certified to complete commercial energy audits to find out how we can make your building more energy-efficient. By doing so, we’ll reduce your building’s operating costs and improve occupant productivity by providing a cleaner, safer indoor environment. You can also rest easy knowing that you’re helping our environment by conserving natural resources, improving water and air quality, and by protecting natural ecosystems.

As an environmentally conscious construction management company, we take energy renovation projects with enthusiasm unparalleled in the industry. Changing our environment one job at a time is an incredibly crucial endeavor for making the world a more sustainable place.

For more information on environmentally sound building design and construction, contact our team at Schroeder Construction Management today (603) 882-1822.

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. Call today for more information on how our team can assist you.

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.

general contractor

For a moment, let’s say you are a real estate developer undergoing a major project. As one can image, this is an extremely stressful position to be in as there are many hats to be worn. From coordinating workers and equipment to maintaining schedules and budgets, the details are endless. This, in a nutshell, is why you would hire a general contractor. With the assistance of a trained expert, the once overwhelming list of tasks can be delegated with ease.

 

A brief overview

A day in the life of a general contractor is never the same. This individual is responsible for the overall coordination of a project as well as act as the construction manager. From assessing documents, visiting sites, submitted proposals or bids, hiring tradesman or subcontractors, and working with engineers, a general contractor is a well-rounded, and knowledgeable individual with resources.

 

The management hat

As the on-site construction manager, the general contractor on a project ensures that tasks stay as planning. For example, the electrician can not come on-site to perform their duties until other elements of the construction phase have been completed. Keeping the project moving on time is a crucial part of managing a job, as well as keeping to the proposed budget.

 

Hiring subcontractors

Rome wasn’t built in a day. We’ve all heard the famous saying, and it holds true for many aspects of everyday life. In construction, this saying is especially true. To successfully execute a project teamwork is needed from a variety of different trades.

Enter the general contractor. This individual is typically one with a considerable amount of industry experience and resources. Thus, he or she can hire in the subcontractors needed to execute the job with precision. Tradesmen such as electricians, masons, carpenters, ironworkers, and so on will all be required at some point throughout the plan. Carefully coordinating schedules, each stage should flow seamlessly without interruption.

 

 

If your project could use the expertise of a general contractor, contact Schroeder Construction Management. With over 30 years of experience, owner Jack Schroeder has the professionalism and resources you require. Contact our team today at (603) 882-1822 for more information.

Commercial construction projects need to be overseen by someone who has strong communication skills and the ability to problem solve. It is also imperative that this individual knows the building process inside and out to meet the needs of the client.

Building or renovating a property is a big job, with many small and complicated tasks making up the daily work involved. The plans for the day can shift wildly, and it is crucial that there is someone who is in charge who can respond quickly and effectively.

If you are planning to build or renovate a commercial property, hiring a professional commercial construction management company will be the best decision you can make. But, what exactly is a commercial construction management company?

Project management is “the art of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life of a project by using modern management techniques to achieve predetermined objectives of scope, cost, time, quality, and participating objectives.” – Project Management Institute (PMI) 

commercial construction

Construction management companies are specialists who know how to coordinate all the moving pieces of a large scale construction project from beginning to end.

They are involved as early as the planning stage and help with setting the calendar and all the specs. If you don’t know how long it will take to dig a foundation, you don’t need to. That’s their job.

The management company will vet and hire all the workers to ensure that the team working on your build is the best that it can be. There’s no need for you to figure out which mason worker is the best. Job delegated!

They oversee the project as the process moves along, continually evaluating to make sure things are running smoothly and staying on track. Conflict on site? They are the ones who fix it. It is their job to make sure the project is completed on time and budget while still meeting essential specs and building codes.

In the end, they submit a final report letting you know what aspects of the project met the goals, which ones didn’t, and any loose ends that may need to be tied up.

Doesn’t that all sound like a massive load off of your shoulders? No need to worry about communicating with or dealing with the dozens and dozens of contractors and sub-contractors. You can hand it all off to an expert and focus on more important things. You will be glad you did.
