In the retail industry, the look and feel of a building can be crucial to a company’s success. A retail store’s atmosphere can be the difference between keeping a loyal customer base and going out of business. Thus, the design and construction of a space can echo throughout the lifespan of a company.
Retail construction requires an awareness of the long-term effects of projects, as well as an efficient design and construction phase. In order to meet a client’s advertised opening date, general contractors must maintain a precise schedule. Oftentimes this means ensuring that subcontractors have completed their work effectively and on time.
Common Retail Project Types:
Buildouts: A buildout involves a contractor demolishing the property on a space in order to rebuild one that fits the needs of the space’s new tenants.
Storefront: In a storefront project, a contractor is hired to remodel the front of a store in order to attract more foot traffic.
Remodels: Remodeling includes renovating and upgrading an existing space.
Rebranding: Rebranding, like remodeling, includes revamping an existing property. However, rebranding is less involved than remodeling and is focused on changing or upgrading the look of the client’s space.
Sustainability: A sustainability project is a project where the contractor helps a company update their space and “Go Green.”
Turnkey: Turnkey projects involve a client hiring a contractor to build or remodel a company for the client to eventually sell.

Dyer & Posta Salon
For this hair salon in Kennesaw, GA, Buildrite was involved as early as the design phase. Our team was proactive in advising our client on cost-efficient solutions to HVAC, plumbing layout, electrical orientation, and fixture selection. Once the design was finalized, our team began interior build-out with demolition to combine two suites into one. Buildrite completed the hair salon with heating and air, electrical, ADA-compliant restrooms, mold remediation, a sprinkler system, custom top finishes, and custom cabinets.
