New Construction on Business

Nicole Stevens

Having and maintaining a business is incredibly awarding, and also requires a lot of hard work. During  all that hard work, business will increase, as will the chances you will need to expand. Expanding may include changes to your building, and the likelihood of adding new construction to your business is high. If you’ve never had experience constructing new work space, it’s difficult to figure out where to begin. Below you will find a few pieces of advice into a smooth transition to add on construction to your business.

  • First, decide if it would be more cost-effective to begin new construction or look for a new location. Typically the addition of new construction would be less costly.
  • Make sure your business is on solid ground. This has two meanings; first being to make sure construction wise that the ground you are adding on to is stable and will remain level with the rest of the building. The second meaning is to build according to your business’s stability. If you’re struggling, now is probably not the best time to add new construction to your plate.
  • Plan out a blueprint of new construction areas. Play with different ideas on various layouts of the construction plans. Will it all be one story? Are you adding another level to the building? What type of reinforcement will you need? Having several blueprints will also allow for a better way to calculate an estimate of costs and see which one comes out most cost-effective.
  • Contact a local certified and licensed contractor to begin the process of the new construction add-on. They will help provide with proper estimates of cost and get things squared away before building begins.

Beginning new construction onto your business can seem like a stressful task but taking it one step at a time helps make the right decisions for the expansion of your business.

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.
