The Process of Building an Office Space - Brett Clawson - Blog

The Process of Building an Office Space

Business owners have many concerns to address in order to make their businesses successful. One of these concerns is that of space, and many businesses require buildings to be erected in order to house employees and operations. Erecting such a structure is an undertaking in its own right, and it takes a lot of resources and time. Here is a breakdown of the construction process in order to give you an idea of what the process entails.

Materials and Tools

Building a business’s office space requires materials, and those materials will vary in type and amount from project to project. Skyscrapers, for instance, are typically built using steel girders or concrete for support and typically feature a much higher percentage of window space than other types of building. On the other hand, smaller office buildings are often made in a method and using materials that are more in line with building a house. Brick and wood structures are more common for these purposes. Most buildings also require a sturdy foundation, which is usually made from concrete. However, a skyscraper will require an even sturdier foundation, in which case bedrock is used.

As you might imagine, building a large structure often requires similarly large tools that are more powerful than usual. While smaller tasks that can be performed with smaller, handheld tools have a place in erecting a structure, larger projects like this often require the use of tools like cranes. Cranes can be used to piece together the skeletal structure of a building more easily and safely than human hands. Tools like these are often rented instead of purchased, unless the company in question is a construction company. To find such a rental agreement, consider searching “crane rental Lafayette, Indiana,” for example, in order to find local options. The operation of cranes and similarly large tools requires additional training in order to use safely, both because of their size and the fact that they are often merged with a vehicle.

Safety Requirements

Construction is an infamously treacherous task, and safety is constantly top of mind as a result. Construction projects typically involve a variety of tools that can be as destructive as they are productive, and they need to be handled with care in order to avoid injuries. Likewise, there are often large teams working in tandem on construction sites, and that means that every member of the team needs to be aware of each other in order to avoid accidents. Construction site safety is legally mandated and enforced, but it also depends heavily on the training of the workers. Therefore, an ample training program is a crucial part of the construction process, especially for contract workers who may not ordinarily work within a larger team.


Commercial buildings need to meet certain safety requirements in order to house employees, and those requirements are an essential part of the process from the ground up. The aforementioned foundation needs to be solid and sturdy, for example, as a faulty foundation can result in the collapsing of a building. Likewise, a faulty roof can result in leaking, and water damage can wear down the building’s structural integrity over time; plumbing needs to be free of leaks for similar reasons. These safety requirements will need to be met in order for the building to pass an inspection before the building can be used commercially.

Time Frame

Building a structure can often take a staggering amount of time. Building a meager house can take many months, while skyscrapers can take multiple years to build. The amount of time it takes to build a structure can be estimated along multiple guidelines, such as the size of the building and the skill of the workers involved, for example, and that estimate can be used to plan the construction project in advance. The goal of this step is to ensure that the building is finished well before it is needed.


Erecting an office building, or any other kind of structure, inevitably requires the investment of time, resources, and money. Knowing the steps involved can give a greater appreciation for the work being done, and it can give you a more informed perspective of the costs of construction.
