The beginner’s guide to commercial construction in Mt Isa

Rod Johnstone Group helps business owners at every  stage of their career get access to top notch commercial construction in Mt Isa. Not everyone knows things about construction like us, and we don’t expect them to. Whether you’ve worked in property development for a while or are a total newbie to the scene building your first brick-and-mortar presence, we made a basic beginners guide for you.

Location location location

Whether you’re ordering commercial  construction in Mt Isa, Longreach, or Cairns, Rod Johnstone’s offices are there to back you up. After initial meetings, we’ll meet you on the site where you plan to develop your business.

In commercial construction, it’s vital to check if a site is viable to build on. Our contractors conduct topsoil analysis, measurements, and more. This ensures an accurate timeline for the project and price on the final quote.

Meeting official requirements

You’ll find more builders in offices doing vital work than onsite doing manual labour. They have the experience and the contacts to make sure your development gets off the ground. Before any commercial construction in Mt Isa can begin, the project needs to meet zoning requirements and plans have to be submitted for council approval. This is non-negotiable. You won’t have to worry about doing this, though. The head builder of your project handles everything and will keep you informed.

Going over plans

And there’s A LOT of them. Commercial construction in Mt Isa isn’t a short process; the whole pre-construction duties take a few months. This includes the builder, architect, and engineers drawing and generating plans for your build. These are structural, mechanical, and electrical. The architect will create a blueprint of how you want your building to look when it’s finished and the more technical details are worked around it.

These are only some of the details behind what goes on during commercial construction in Mt Isa. There’s more to come because there’s so much to cover, but Rod and everyone at Rod Johnstone group will answer any questions. They’re the experts, after all.

Four reasons to get an office renovation, Mt Isa

Rod Johnstone Group is the name to know if you need an office renovation in Mount Isa, Longreach, or anywhere else in Central Queensland. We create spaces for vets, dentists, and any other commercial business. People come to us with their own reasons for wanting an office fitout or commercial renovation. Here though, we give you four reasons why you should get the ball rolling.

 

  • You’ll actually save money

When things get old and outdated, they break. If you replace them with something inferior in quality, that will break as well. Your office is a professional space, so nothing short of the best is acceptable. You’ll save because you’re spending money on quality chairs, for example, over cheaper models.

Money is also saved on the bills. Newer, energy efficient light fittings, white goods, and air-con units don’t impact the business’ power consumption as heavily as older models. The amount saved can go towards something to brighten the space, like some artwork. Or you can invest it in the people who work for you, leading us to the next point.

 

  • Happier employees

Keeping your people happy is the best way to have them stay! The money you save is better spent on employee development or an organised event like a Christmas/New Year gathering.

Multiple surveys say that company culture is one of the main reasons employees stay or go. Having an open, airy work environment instead of rows of cubicles not only opens the space but encourages communication. More talking, less emails!

Instead of a break room that’s enclosed, you can consult with the builder to have an outdoor space for breaks and meals. People, like plants, thrive in natural light. It contributes to productivity and well-being, so splash out on those floor-to-ceiling windows.

 

  • Impressed customers

Updating the office provides an opportunity to redesign those meeting rooms. Again, access to natural light or an outdoor view will put clients at ease more than a closed space. Investing in renovating the office bathroom or putting a coffee machine in the conference room can do wonders.

Your customers will judge you on your office just as much as your service. An old office won’t make a good impression or keep them coming back. They’re the ones who spread the word about your business, too. It’ll be flattering when they tell their friends you have the best commercial or office renovation in Mt Isa.

 

  • It’s time to grow up

As your business grows, so does the number of employees you have. This leads on to needing more office space, a convenient location, and more. The fact that you have the funds available for an office renovation in Mt Isa, Cairns, or anywhere else in Central Queensland is an achievement. You’re ready to expand, and that’s something you should feel excited about.

Rod Johnstone Group is a local building company, so they have the contacts and the best network for an office renovation in Mt Isa. Whether you have ideas about your renovation or need a helping hand, their expert advice won’t leave you wanting. You’ll save money in the long run, keep your employees happy, and impress your clients. Hard to argue with that!
