Commercial construction projects are for the building and selling of business structures such as offices, retail centers, warehouses, and industrial buildings. Business owners, managers, and developers hire general contractors to build or remodel their commercial structure. Commercial construction is a project overseen and built by a general contractor company. General contractors may work in various sectors of construction such as both commercial and residential. The difference in these parts of the construction world is that residential construction projects are for individual housing projects. A general contractor might be educated and experienced in both residential and commercial construction, but they may only serve one of these sectors of the industry. Some general contractors may only service select industries, so when choosing to hire a commercial contracting company, ask them what type of industries they serve.
