Commercial construction is expensive and stressful. There are hundreds of choices along the way that can make or break a project. Undoubtedly, one of the most important decisions you will make for your project is which construction firm you hire. While there are a plethora of contractors, construction firms, and handymen, not all vendors are created equal. Save yourself future headaches and costly mistakes by vetting potential partners carefully. Asking a few pertinent questions can eliminate easily preventable hurdles. But what are those questions?
Shutting down operations during a construction project can be a costly endeavor—and a completely unnecessary one. Installing appropriate temporary containment systems before construction begins can allow you to continue to operate your business with minimal interruptions or inconvenience. At MOORING, we use STARC Systems for our clients’ containment needs across a wide array of industries and building types, including commercial and corporate offices, airports, schools, life sciences and biotech facilities, healthcare facilities, and data centers. Temporary containment systems can be utilized for restoration and remediation projects in addition to full construction projects, enabling day-to-day operations to safely continue for the duration of the project.
The word safety took on an expanded meaning in 2020 with more considerations than ever before to keep employees out of harm’s way. While it’s still vitally important to pay attention to the usual workplace safety protocols, our industry must now implement best practices to prevent Covid-19—a known deadly invisible hazard—from adversely affecting the people who make our businesses successful.
