Special Considerations for Commercial Construction in Denver

Commercial construction in Denver has a number of different considerations depending on the type of work that needs to be completed. Commercial buildings that are undergoing construction or renovation have their own particular set of dangers and areas that require attention.

Commercial construction properties in Denver that are undergoing renovation or construction can pose a wide range of dangers, particularly when work has been delayed or stopped for any reason. It is more common for a building to be vacant during commercial construction or renovations than during residential work, opening up the potential issues for vandalism, theft, injury, and fire. These incidents can be prevented by limiting access to the site, particularly when no one is onsite. Establishing a process for authorized personal can also assist in minimalizing the risks, as will fencing, and locking gates that surround the property, and setting up a surveillance system. People seeking to damage property or to steal equipment will seek out easy targets and taking the right precautions will steer them away.

Injury and fire risks can be reduced by limiting site access as well, but they do not prevent the risk entirely. Even in buildings that are not completed, the risk of fire can be minimized with fire preventative measures, such as fireproofing at risk materials and safely storing any flammable materials on the site. Risk of injury can be lessened by making sure that all persons allowed on site have proper safety training and safety equipment. It is also necessary to secure unfinished areas such as elevator shafts and stairwells in these buildings.

Understanding the unique risks and dangers of commercial job sites where construction or renovation has been stopped or delayed can help prevent damage to the building and lessen the risk of injuries. This can help keep the job on schedule and keep costs lower overall. Contact Hammers Construction, Inc. to request more information or visit our website Sitename today.
