When construction and renovation projects are on the agenda, many organizations do not have the option of closing their doors for an extended period. They must stay operational out of financial necessity or the critical nature of their business. Whether at an office, healthcare center, retail space, or any other workplace, keeping both the occupants and construction workers safe must always be a top priority.
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.
Containment Systems are becoming more of a priority for Restoration, Renovation and/or Construction projects due to the need to conduct business as usual during what would normally require times of business interruption and disruption.
