Ground-Up Construction vs. Renovation

Are you planning a commercial construction project in Annapolis, Maryland?

Did you know that Encore Construction, Inc. is a premier ground-up commercial construction contractor?

Did you know that Encore Construction, Inc. is a premier ground-up commercial construction contractor? Ground-up projects require the construction of an entirely new building, while renovations involve the rebuilding of an existing space. Whether you’re looking to expand your business or start anew, it can be helpful to understand the elements of ground-up construction vs. renovation before you begin your project. Read on to learn more. 


Ground-up projects require a wealth of experience in all aspects of the construction process, from blueprints to a finished building. These projects can give clients flexibility because the building can be customized to meet the needs of the company. Ground-up construction can cost more or less than a renovation depending on the project. For example, a ground-up project may require more planning, but you won’t have to worry about fixing problems or bringing outdated components up to code.  


When clients choose to remodel an existing space, they may not have as much flexibility in the construction process as they would with a ground-up project. However, renovations allow clients to capitalize on a great location as well as adjust their needs to meet the building’s restrictions. Depending on the project, a renovation can be more or less expensive than ground-up construction. Problems arise with older buildings, and new codes may require clients to update more existing components than they expected. Working with a construction company like Encore can help you mitigate those worries with thorough and proper planning. 


While ground-up construction and renovation are both great options, Encore Construction can help you decide which project will work best for your needs.  We’ll discuss your timeframe, budget, and your vision to determine if a new or existing building is the best fit. Give us a call today!
