Commercial businesses have been using concrete during the construction of their buildings for years. The reason why? Concrete is durable, long-lasting, and a solid choice for commercial businesses as a building material. Structurally, it has stood the test of time — there’s even ancient architecture in Rome dating back to the 1800s made from it! At G&M Services, we offer numerous concrete services to companies, including 24/7 emergency services. Here’s what we think the benefits of concrete in the construction of a commercial business are.
Concrete for Commercial Businesses is Affordable
Concrete is an affordable material widely used for the construction of commercial businesses. Whether you’re a modest office building or a large-scale company, this building material is a top choice during a building design due to its affordability and practicality. As a building material, it is also exceptionally economical when steel is involved in building construction. Concrete is also energy-efficient due to its ability to safely seal off drafts and reduce cooling costs.
Local and Widely Available
Concrete building materials are widely available and can even be purchased on a local level. Since concrete doesn’t have to be imported, you’re primarily dealing with local suppliers and often don’t have to worry about long shipping distances that could damage concrete (and hurt your wallet!). In comparison to building materials that aren’t widely available, incorporating concrete into your commercial build can help support your local suppliers.
Fire-Resistant and Fire Control
A little unknown fact about concrete? It’s fire-resistant. Since G&M Services professionally installs FireStop, you should also be aware that it’s a fire-resistant material that can contain and help control the spread of a fire throughout a commercial building. With so many incredible benefits of incorporating concrete into your commercial construction build, it’s no wonder that it’s a favorite material used by builders.
