Not all companies in the construction business work the same way, as construction projects can significantly vary. The most basic distinction separates commercial from residential projects, and it is no surprise to see that companies specialize in one of the two, but very rarely do both. Commercial focus means that projects include commercial and office buildings, but also roads and bridges. The scope and processes are different from residential work, and in many ways these companies resemble corporate firms.
- Commercial construction includes both private and government projects such as buildings, bridges and roads.
- Commercial construction jobs range from mega projects taking years to complete to smaller projects that require months.
- Bidding is done with software and bid templates, and the proposal covers everything from design to blueprint.
