Five Benefits of a Custom-Made Building

35967977 S Jpg

Not quite sold on the idea of hiring a commercial contractor to build you a new building from scratch? There could be plenty of reasons for this, but chances are you’ve stumbled upon this commercial construction blog hoping, for whatever reason, to be convinced otherwise.

In that case, you’re in luck! You’ve found the perfect construction project management company for the job. Both jobs, that is!

Indeed, Miller Architects & Builders is a renowned commercial construction management company that has prioritized quality for more than 100 years! We’ve grown in scale but have never forgotten our roots and what has let us become so prosperous in the first place: groundbreaking custom-built buildings.

Allow us to share a bit about what’s made us so successful and how it can benefit your business.

Custom-Build Buildings: An Essential Part of a Thriving Workplace

You’d be hard-pressed to find a commercial contractor with a history as long as ours, and that’s for good reason: our finished commercial contractor work is top-notch.

But our clients don’t just pay us to make pretty structures! When built well and designed right, a custom-made building can be the best thing that’s ever happened to your company, hands down.

Make Workflow Easier

For however long you’ve been in your current building, you’ve needed to adjust your logistics to compensate for its structure. How much easier would things be if they were the other way around?

Especially in the case of funeral homes, healthcare facilities, and manufacturing businesses, a custom-made building will improve synergy and accessibility, making getting from point A to point B so much easier.

Display Your Brand Loud and Proud

Your brand makes you memorable, as does the exterior of your building. So why should the latter not contribute to the former? Be sure to take advantage of the opinion-influencing power of appearances with a fit-to-you new building.

Draw in Foot Traffic

Your company stands out – how else would you be in a financial position to potentially afford a new building? You deserve a home base that lets customers know just how amazing your team is and, by proxy, draws them in. You deserve a custom build from Miller Architects & Builders.

Boost Staff Morale

Though many businesses are primarily preoccupied with catering to their customers, staff morale plays a critical role in the success of any organization. According to Forbes, “burned-out employees are more likely to quit,” which can cost companies dearly. The Center for American Progress analyzed various case studies and determined that “it costs businesses about one-fifth of a worker’s salary to replace that worker.”

In short: take care of your staff to ensure the well-being of your business—and you can start by investing in a custom build.

This is because custom builds synergize with your team’s workflow and can be specifically designed to solve staff problems. If your employees are constantly struggling with long walk times between supply rooms, for example, you can make those supply rooms closer in your new building and reduce worker stress. Or, if your team complains of feeling isolated and alone, you can opt for more collaborative spaces in your build.

Not only can custom facilities boost staff morale by reducing stress—they’re also good for your bottom line.

Choose Materials That Work for You

When choosing materials for your build, there frequently is no one objectively correct answer. Take roofing, for instance. As we cover on our blog, each material has its own look, care requirements, and durability levels. What may suit one business just fine might be unsuitable for another.

When you purchase a building, you’re likely to be stuck with what you have—at least until you can afford to pay for renovations. On the other hand, custom builds are built just the way you want from the ground up. You won’t need to wait for exactly what will express your brand and draw in customers; instead, you’ll have it right out of the gate.
