At Neil Sullivan and Sons, we provide expert commercial concrete services to aid construction projects of any size or scale across the Essex region.
Benefits of concrete for commercial construction
In addition to providing a sound and long-lasting structural frame for a commercial building, strategic use of industry-grade concrete can also deliver essential benefits throughout every aspect of the construction and lifespan of the building. These include:
Concrete is a timeless material that has been used for construction purposes for centuries. In commercial construction, versatility is essential, and concrete delivers this in abundance. Future renovations, changes, additions or refurbishments can easily be accommodated when dealing with a concrete structure. This allows a commercial property to be re-purposed, enhanced or adapted to meet changing demand as and when required.
The durability of concrete is perhaps its most attractive property. Commercial structures require durable foundations, frames and supports, and professionally specified commercial concrete can provide this.
Exposed concrete can improve the energy efficiency of a commercial building due to the material’s high thermal mass. Energy is stored instead of being lost through walls, which will reduce long-term running costs and overall efficiency.
Concrete benefits multi-storey car parks in many ways. Commercial concrete brings reliable durability to the entire structure, as well as reducing stress from vibration, providing innate fire protection properties and protection from general impact and day-to-day wear and tear.
For hotels, the high thermal mass of concrete works in tandem with additional heating and cooling mechanisms to provide an easily controlled internal environment for occupants. Concrete further complements the necessary comfort requirements with its sound-proofing abilities. General structural durability is also beneficial, as is the versatility of the material both before and after construction.
The healthcare sector requires efficient, easy-to-maintain, reliable and durable structures for hospitals and surgeries. Concrete provides this, creating a safe and manageable working environment that is also comfortable for staff and patients, and open to renovation as demand increases in the future.
Concrete construction provides schools and universities with efficient internal environments conducive to learning, whilst also providing a safe and hard-wearing structure that lasts. Concrete’s fire resistance is a key factor in an educational building’s design, while the sound dampening and innate flexibility of the material creates a comfortable and adaptable space.
