The quality, consistency, and timeliness of a commercial or industrial construction project is greatly impacted by your choice of contractor. The right contractor will produce results that are consistent with your blueprints, budget, and timeline. Meanwhile, an underqualified contractor may leave you dealing with delays, grossly underestimated costs, and unexpected results. Follow these tips when choosing a contractor for your commercial HVAC project.
Select an Expert
Find a contractor that has advanced training specific to the project at hand. If you’re hiring for a new plumbing installation in a healthcare facility, you need a contractor trained to work with plumbing for medical and laboratory gases and fluids. For an environmentally sensitive project, you should look for a contractor who is experienced with LEED certification and green technologies.
Inquire about your prospective contractor’s training and certifications. Our team members at Sagamore undergo mandated continuing education programs that keep them up-to-date on the latest advancements in tools, techniques, and technology.
Evaluate Their Experience
Ask for examples of similar projects that the contractor has completed in the past. If you’re seeking a contractor for an educational facility, it’s best to work with someone who has completed projects for universities, secondary schools, and other similar clients. This experience forms a solid foundation that will inform the choices for your project.
Prioritize Customer Service
Every construction project has its own unique challenges. You need a contractor who will listen thoughtfully to all your needs and work closely with you to develop a plan that’s tailored to that particular project. While prior experience will help inform the contractor’s selections, you don’t want a boilerplate solution that relies on a one-size-fits-all approach.
