‘Green’ Construction Firm Joins Commercial Market

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Comment | More

First Finish, a construction renovation firm that focuses on the hotel industry, has launched a new division that will bring the firm’s environmental renovation approach to commercial buildings.

 

The company, based in Columbia, Md., is targeting commercial building owners and property management companies that are nearing the point in their buildings’ lifecycle when renovations are required to keep the properties tenant ready.

 

Many commercial buildings undergo renovations when leases are being negotiated with existing tenants or when new tenants sign up.  Both instances can be disruptive to other tenants, which points to the need for strong customer service, a dependable supply chain, and tight scheduling to keep the renovation process on track and completed as quickly as possible. 

 

With hotels needing to remain operational even during the room renovations that typically occur every five to seven years, First Finish has emphasized both fast implementation and environmental implications in its hospitality projects.

 

“We started this company under the premise of environmental responsibility because construction is not a particularly ‘green’ industry due to its use of raw materials and the way it generates a lot of waste,” says David Burman, president of First Finish.

 

 “With this additional direction of commercial renovations, we will not only improve the industry’s environmental reputation, but we will help building owners position themselves as environmentally responsible through reducing, reusing, and recycling construction materials.”
