The moment Ridgemont Commercial Construction sets foot on the project site it takes control of the entire process. The company collaborates with the architect and owner to design the building and develop the construction plan, but once the actual work begins  Ridgemont’s takes the lead. It’s how Ridgemont ensures that decisions are made quickly and project issues are taken care of immediately so that the entire process runs smoothly.

“Our brand promise for Ridgemont is complete client confidence,” Vice President Joey Johnson says. “In order to provide that, we need an appropriate level of interaction with the client and the design consultants. What we want at the end of every job is to feel like we’re their in-house contractor.”

Today's office building developers like to tout their design and lifestyle amenities: how much of the facade is made from glass, what restaurants are nearby, how many treadmills the workout room has and what sustainable materials were used in construction. But for many companies, parking availability is every bit as important as those more marketable features.

A good parking spot is not only a convenience; it's a status symbol – and a revenue generator. High-end office buildings in Orange County, Calif., can charge up to $1,200 a month for a reserved ground-level covered parking space near the entrance. Demand and revenue potential has office developments thinking about how to maximize their parking availability, leading to opportunities for dedicated parking structure builders such as California's ARB Structures.

Brookfield Residential’s Seton retail project features unique designs.

By Kat Zeman 

When Brookfield Residential builds a shopping center, it aims to make it a community hangout. That usually means giving the development some sort of interesting design feature.

“We want our retail developments to become focal gathering points for the community,” says Garrick Fryklind, commercial construction manager. “It differentiates us from our competitors. We build these types of developments with the intent of giving back to the community.”

Seton Calgary Retail Center is no exception. Nestled in Calgary, a city in Alberta, Canada, phase two of the retail development is under construction. The $35 million North Retail District project, which broke ground in June, will feature a distinctive wind sculpture.

National Interstate has a culture of active employees who enjoy walking the grounds on their breaks,” Project Manager and Vice President of Field Operations Bill Porter declares. “It’s been challenging at times, but it’s gone extremely well.”

With winds approaching 100 mph, Hurricane Irma was a destructive force in south Florida – and a source of fear for the project teams whose building sites were potentially exposed to the storm’s full wrath.

At 299 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., just north of Miami, crews began preparing the new Dalmar/Element Hotel for the hurricane on Sept. 5, five days before it made landfall. By Sept. 8, the contractor, Tutor Perini, determined it had done everything it could and sent its field crews home to prepare their own families for the storm. When workers finally returned on Sept. 18, they found that their preparations had been rewarded.
