Encore Construction has recently completed a new HomeGoods project located in California, Maryland. The project consisted of new storefronts, façade, structural steel shoring, new structural columns, and footings to remove an existing structural CMU demising wall, raising of the existing slab on grade approx. 3’, new roofing, all new MEP and an all-new fire sprinkler system. The 18,000 SF project was completed in under four months.

Working with a Trustworthy Team

If you’re ready to tackle a commercial construction project in Southern Maryland, it’s important to work with a team you can trust.  Both the proximity to our nation’s capital and the presence of Naval Air Station Pax River bring families and professionals to Southern Maryland each year, and the area is constantly being developed as a result. There are several commercial general contractors for every project, but you always want to make sure you work with the one that you can trust to keep your best interests at the forefront throughout the project.

Requesting Referrals

Southern Maryland residents understand the importance of business referrals, especially when planning a commercial construction project. If you’re new to the area, do your research. Review each general contractor’s website and ask if they can provide you with customer reviews and experiences.

Price Isn’t the Only Factor

Don’t stop your general contractor search by factoring in price alone. You may be tempted to go with a general contractor that offers the lowest bid, however, price is not the only factor. You might save some money upfront, but trusting the wrong contractor could cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in change orders down the line.  So if one general contractor’s number is higher than the others, talk to them and ask them to explain. It may open your eyes to an issue or cost(s) ahead of time that the other general contractors did not catch and/or did not include in their bid. This will allow you to avoid surprises and will give you a better idea of your true costs upfront.  

Narrow Your Search

Once you review referrals and compare bids, meet with each candidate to narrow your search. At the end of the day, you want to work with a personable and reliable general contractor. Ensure that they can meet all of your needs, complete the job within the timeline, and keep you in the loop throughout the project.
