Get the Scoop on GNB’s Commercial Construction and Remodeling Services

Did you know Great Northern Builders offers commercial construction and remodeling services? It’s true! Our team is well-versed in all things commercial construction and remodeling, and our portfolio is stacked with some fantastic projects from throughout the Twin Cities area.

Over the years, we’ve worked on many different commercial projects, including assisted living and senior centers, hotels, multi-family housing, office space, dental clinics, bars, and restaurants – we’ve even worked on a sorority house!

As it is with residential remodeling, every commercial project has a different scope of work.

That being said, some of the commercial services we provide include the following:

  • Remodeling
  • Full buildouts with all-custom design
  • Insurance restoration due to mold, fire, water, or storm damage
  • Landscaping/curb and parking lot repair/striping

  • Architectural and interior design

Great Northern Builders Specializes in All Types & Sizes of Commercial Projects

We specialize in “light commercial projects,” so don’t look to us to build your next skyscraper. Our commercial services include buildouts, remodeling, and small new construction along the lines of retail, hospitality, multi-family housing, etc. We cover anything from a simple new entry door unit on an existing building to a million-dollar insurance loss that needs special attention. Regardless of size, we understand how important it is to keep an existing business up-and-running throughout the entire project or complete a new build promptly. We always tell our clients that we get it because we are a small business too.

What We Love About Commercial Construction and Remodeling

Some of our favorite parts of working on commercial construction and remodeling projects are the versatility that comes with each. There is often so much freedom within each space, which lets us get creative in ways that don’t work for residential projects. It’s also great knowing that so many people get to see and experience our work in a commercial setting. There’s another rewarding aspect of the commercial side of work as well. In some situations, we work with residents living in a senior living home or multi-family housing that are displaced to property damages. Being able to put their homes back together even better than before is an amazing feeling!

Common Challenges of Commercial Projects

Commercial construction and remodeling can be very challenging. Commercial projects are entirely different than residential projects. There are tight timelines, budgets, and variables—like the weather—that impact each job. Also, some elements don’t follow the typical residential code, such as design, building codes, and ADA compliance. With so many things to balance, being well-versed and knowledgeable about the commercial process and codes is a must.
