Frequently Asked Healthcare and Commercial Contractor Questions

Do you have a question about our construction and restoration services? Over the years we’ve completed a diverse range of projects for our commercial, healthcare and residential clients. Whether you want to know about timescales, techniques or safety protocols, we’re always happy to discuss your queries and concerns before and during a project. Here are some popular questions about our services.

Healthcare Construction Questions

Healthcare construction is a specialized field that demands a high level of experience and industry knowledge. Below are some medical construction questions for healthcare providers.

Healthcare construction covers a broad spectrum of buildings including purpose-built facilities and more general spaces. Common examples include hospitals, urgent care clinics, medical laboratories, nursing homes, outpatient clinics, doctor’s rooms and medical offices. We work with clients to create facilities that help medical staff deliver the highest level of care.
Adhering to strict sanitary and hygiene standards is a critical part of healthcare construction. While every project varies, it’s common to employ barriers and containment areas to isolate construction from operational spaces. In addition, HEPA-filtered air scrubbers, negative air machines and regular cleaning keep the environment free from contaminants.
While healthcare construction shares many similarities with commercial construction projects, key differences exist. A medical facility places greater emphasis on infection control within the design and building construction. Such construction must factor in patient privacy, accessibility for large medical equipment, safe airflow and so on.

Commercial Construction Questions

Design Core Construction works with businesses to design and construct first-class buildings for various needs. Every business deserves the personal touch, and we’re here to help with any commercial construction questions you may have.

Commercial construction companies design and build facilities for a range of business requirements. Examples of commercial construction projects include offices, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, leisure facilities, light commercial warehouses and more. Depending on the needs of the business, various materials are available, and functional aspects of the building can be accommodated.
Modern commercial construction prioritizes sustainability, ensuring businesses have buildings designed for the future. As part of an environmentally-friendly design, construction companies use energy-efficient systems, sustainable materials and reduced waste to meet each client’s sustainability goals. Prior to construction, clients may also request specific options such as renewable energy sources and certification.
Safety is an essential aspect of all types of construction work, particularly in busy commercial areas with employees or neighboring businesses. To prevent accidents, the construction area is barricaded and prominent signs will be displayed where required. Onsite workers also receive routine safety training on potential hazards and equipment usage.

Commercial and Residential Restoration Questions

Our restoration services turn old or damaged buildings into modern, safe spaces. Here are some questions we receive from commercial, healthcare and residential partners.

Restoration work is usually needed in response to events that damage a property’s structure, appearance, or that affect the health of its occupants. Common reasons to hire a restoration company include tackling water leaks, fire damage, mold growth, aging properties, extreme weather damage and asbestos. These issues regularly affect healthcare providers, commercial organizations and homeowners alike.
The type of equipment used in restoration projects varies depending on the type and extent of the damage. Restoration specialists frequently use industrial vacuums, submersible pumps, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers and more. To ensure the safety of workers, personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves and protective suits are employed on site.
In the event of severe flooding, substantial fires and invasive mold, minor restorative work will likely not be sufficient. Restoration professionals will conduct a comprehensive inspection of the damaged area, and may recommend demolition and new construction of a targeted area of the building – ensuring healthy components are untouched. Maintaining the safety of occupants is crucial in the restoration process.

Insurance Claims Questions

Making an insurance claim for restoration work can be a challenging, time-consuming process. To shed some light on this complex aspect of a restoration project, we have compiled some common questions on the topic.

Insurance claims restoration is the process of restoring a commercial, healthcare or residential property to its pre-loss condition after damage, with the costs covered by insurers. The aim is to restore the affected building to its original state with minimal disruption to the property owner. A restoration company with experience in insurance claims will carry out all repairs, and may also conduct inspections and prepare detailed damage reports.
The types of covered damage will vary – it all depends on the terms of the property owner’s policy. However, common examples of damage covered by a policy are fire, water from floods or plumbing leaks, wind and mold. When you experience damage to your home or business property, speak to your insurance claim restoration contractor for advice on damage repairs and successful claims.
To determine the cost of repairs for insurance claims, the adjuster will perform a comprehensive inspection of the damaged area. The restoration contractor designated by the insurance policyholder may also evaluate the damage and provide an estimate for the cost of repairs. Costs typically include elements such as materials, labor and other related expenses.
