Let's Make Your Building Work Harder!


Commercial painting projects can face a variety of challenges. Here are some of the key issues:

  1. Large-scale projects with short notice: Commercial painting often involves large areas that need to be painted quickly1.

  2. Nationwide availability of painting contractors: Finding contractors who are available and willing to travel can be a challenge1.

  3. Specialty coatings and protection for different asset classes: Different types of buildings and materials require different types of paint and techniques1.

  4. Rough surfaces: These can be difficult to paint over and may require additional preparation1.

  5. Faded paint, mold growth, holes and cracks, stains, galvanized surface, cracked or blistered paint: These are all common issues that need to be addressed before painting can begin1.

  6. Raw material shortages: This can delay projects and increase costs1.

  7. Increasing regulations due to environmental concerns: Paints and other materials used in commercial painting must meet certain environmental standards1.

  8. Increase in manufacturing costs and raw materials: This can make commercial painting projects more expensive1.

  9. Finishing work on deadline dates: Commercial painting projects often have strict deadlines1.

  10. Working on great heights: Safety is a major concern when painting tall buildings1.

  11. Involves huge costs: Commercial painting can be quite expensive, especially for large projects1.

  12. Knowing the expectations of the client: It’s important to understand exactly what the client wants before starting a project1.

  13. Top grade products: Using high-quality paints and materials is crucial for a successful project1.

  14. Sustaining in the market: The painting industry is competitive, and staying ahead requires constant innovation and high-quality work1.

  15. Demand, labor, and safety issues: These are all factors that can affect the success of a commercial painting project1.

It’s also important to note that commercial painting projects require careful planning and preparation. For example, deciding on colors and finishes, removing and protecting belongings, making necessary repairs, and cleaning surfaces are all crucial steps in the preparation process2. If the exterior of a building is being painted, it may also be necessary to trim trees and shrubs and prepare the exterior surface2.


Profitable Commercial Buildings - A note from Chuck Reilly

Right now, nobody really knows the future of Commercial office properties ... Will the Pandemic permanently reduce the demand for space? Or, next year, will things return to normal?

Either way, Building Managers will have to pay much closer attention to fixed overhead. Yes, we all want to reduce energy costs. But what about labor costs? Equipment maintenance? And what about those "catastrophic" repairs that eat up 6 months' worth of budget? Commercial Facilities margins could be even tighter, going forward.

Building Management System

Modern buildings use centralized, digital management of a building's HVAC, lighting, and security, through a connected "Building Management System". (BMS). Your BAS should increase building energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.

A Building Management System electronically connects microprocessors and switches that monitor efficiency and performance. Additionally, smart controllers can be networked to the internet or serve as a stand-alone system for a local peer-to-peer or campus Facilities Department.


Commercial tenants are looking for healthy buildings. Employee attendance and retention is all based on workers staying free of contaminated air and surroundings. Air in buildings is typically moved through the spaces using large electric fan units known as "air handlers". In most buildings, the air handlers draw a percentage of fresh air from the outside, mix it with ambient air from within the building, and then use the heating and air conditioning system or cool it, as well as dehumidify it or add humidity depending on the location and time of year.

The more pure, clean air that comes, the more bacterial infectious air goes out.
