The Most Important Building Questions To Ask Your Builder

How long will it take to build my building?

Hiring a company to build your building can be a challenging task. Knowing what questions to ask builders can be even more daunting.

Every building is a little different depending on what type of materials you’re using, how long it takes to get the materials, along with certainly in the north country here whether we’re building in winter or summer. But, as a basis, most commercial buildings more than 10,000 square feet will take around four to six months. When you get up into more complex office buildings and larger industrial buildings, say 50,000 square feet or more, they can take from six to eight months. Year-long projects are usually projects that have a dollar value of five million dollars or more.

That gives you a basis for how long it should take to build your building. Certainly, winter and materials play a big part, that’s one of the things we help research, go through, and get nailed down before we even start construction.
