Residential and Commercial Construction Services Lexington Ky



Design & Engineering Construction Services

A person who is good at design and engineering makes ideas for products and services come to life. Professional design engineers use computer-aided design (CAD) services to help inventors and business owners think up and make useful, operational, and marketable products. CAD services help them do this.

Step by step, engineers follow a process called engineering design to come up with a way to solve an issue. The steps include problem-solving processes like, for example, figuring out your goals and constraints, making prototypes, testing, and evaluating them, among other things.

We have a selective group of design associates and engineering firms that we work closely with to meet and exceed any requirement that your project may need.  We can provide everything from concept development to full-scale plan delivery including MEP, Structural, Civil, and Architectural.

Commercial and Residential Procurement Planning

Procurement management oversees making sure that businesses get the products, materials, goods, and services they need to run smoothly. Procurement planning is the process of figuring out what you need and how long it will take to get it, so you can have it when you need it. A good procurement plan will explain how to find and choose suppliers, contractors, and consultants.

The goal of procurement is to buy things and provide value

People in procurement want to make sure value is added during the process and that the total cost of ownership is thought about. It’s also simpler because it’s all about the cost and how to get the best price when you buy something. There are a lot of ways procurement management has an impact on an organization’s bottom line and strategic business operations, and these are the main ones.

You can buy direct, indirect, and service things. Direct procurement: Direct procurement is when the company buys raw goods, machinery, and wholesale goods that directly contribute to its end product.

Providing full procurement services by coordinating with design associates and vendors to provide the owner/client with the most financially feasible and highest quality equipment/furnishings as specified for each individual project.  We will provide cost comparisons of specified products and manage the ordering/delivery/inspection processes as needed.

Construction Project Management

The Project Manager (PM) oversees making sure that a construction project goes well. They oversee everything, from planning to execution, monitoring, control, and closing. Project Managers make sure that deadlines and budgets are met.

Project managers help the team, talk to the boss, and take responsibility for the whole process. Project planning is a very important part of building. A well-thought-out plan and strategy can help with overhead, budgeting, on-time deliveries, and quality. In general, there are three types of construction: buildings, infrastructure, and industrial: Usually, building construction is broken down into two groups: residential and non-residential.

A construction project, which is sometimes called a “project,” is the planned process of building, renovating, refurbishing, and so on. That means a project team, a brief, and money are put together to make a unique design that only does one thing.

A good construction company has a quality and successful project portfolio it can share with you. Building construction projects include office buildings, schools, shops, hospitals, residences, etc. Scope statement and scope documentation: A document that defines the business need, benefits, objectives, deliverables, and key milestones. Construction Management: The first step of planning a construction project is defining scope, cost and schedule baseline.

In general, the planning of a construction project is comprehensive and more detailed. Residential construction includes houses, apartments, townhouses, and other smaller, low-rise housing, small office types. Commercial construction refers to construction for the needs of private commerce, trade, and services. Buildings and other constructed items used for storage and product production are called industrial.

Construction Types

Agricultural: Low-cost structures and other agricultural developments. Barns, equipment and animal shelters, customized fences, storage silos and elevators, wells, tanks, and ditches are examples.

Construction of low-rise residences and offices is classified as residential. Construction for private business, trade, and services. Larger residential complexes such as high-rise hotels and condos are examples.

Institutional: For government and other public requirements. Public buildings such as schools, fire and police stations and libraries are examples of non-residential structures. Manufacturing factories, pipelines, chemical and power plants are examples of industrial buildings.

Heavy civil construction includes highways, bridges, trains, tunnels, airports, and reinforced military installations. Dams are featured, however most water infrastructure is environmental. Environmental construction used to be part of heavy civil but is now distinct. For example, sewage and storm sewers, solid waste management and air pollution control.

Roofing Repair and Replacement

Common rafters or pre-made wooden trusses are usually used to build modern timber roofs. Then, the roofs are usually held together with truss connector plates. Wooden and historic buildings can be built with rafters or trusses made of wood, depending on how they were built. Roofs can also be called “warm” or “cold” depending on how they are made and how well they are insulated and ventilated. The steepness or roof pitch of a sloped roof is mostly determined by the material used to cover it and how it looks. Flat roofs, on the other hand, actually slope up to about ten degrees so that water can be drained off of them. Flat roofs are mostly found in areas that get a lot of rain.

There are a lot of windy places where cyclones and hurricanes could hit. The main engineering concern is to keep the roof down during strong storms. Everyone who works on the roof, as well as the rest of the structure, must deal with high wind speeds. This is done by attaching metal ties to each rafter or truss. This isn’t usually a problem in places where there isn’t a lot of wind or bad weather.

The first roofs that people built were probably made of straw, leaves, branches, or reeds. They were usually set at a slope, or pitch, so that rain could run off them. Conical thatched roofs are a good example of this type of roof. They are still used in rural areas of Africa and other places. As time went on, thicker branches and timbers were used to build a roof, with clay or some other substance that didn’t allow water to get in between them. With these materials, it was possible to make gabled and flat roofs that could be used. There were two basic types of roofs: domes and vaults. Bricks and cut stones made it possible to build with them.

The roofing material, which includes the underlayment and the roof covering, is mostly meant to keep water out. Roof materials come in many different colors and textures, which are important parts of the architecture. Most of the roofs on homes in North America have asphalt shingles, but some have other types of roof shingles or metal roofs. People in Europe use tile and thatch roofs a lot more than people in the United States do. Some roofing materials can help cut down on the cost of air conditioning in hot places because they are made to reflect light.

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing in North America. They make up as much as 75% of all steep slope roofs in the country. This type of material is also becoming popular in Europe because it costs less to install. Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roof on North American homes because they are usually cheaper than other materials.

Some people in the southern US and Mexico like clay tile roofs because they last a long time and can handle hurricane winds with little or no damage. In Europe, slate and tile roofs are a lot of fun to have. Many slate roofs in Europe are more than 100 years old, and they don’t need a lot of maintenance or repairs.

Roof space ventilation is needed to keep the temperature in the roof space even. When there isn’t enough ventilation, humidity can build up inside the roof fabric, which can cause interstitial condensation. This can cause structural damage, wet or dry rot, and even damage insulation.

It is much more common for condensation to build up in the roof space today because: tighter building envelopes with high-performance windows, doors, and chimneys don’t allow for a lot of natural ventilation. There are also no chimneys to vent the space. This tighter envelope means that the temperature of the air in buildings has gone up. The warmer the air in a building is, the more water vapour it can carry with it in the air.

As the inside of the building warms up, the roof space gets colder. This is because high-performance insulation and roofing membranes make the roof space cold. Condensation starts when the temperature of the air drops below the “dew point,” or when the warm air meets any of the cold surfaces in the roof.

Painting & Pressure Washing Services

Painting contractors must paint interior and exterior surfaces, remove old paint, pick materials, mix colors, patch gaps, caulk corners, confer with clients, and clean up after themselves. In terms of expense, painting the outside of your house may transform the appearance of your house for a few hundred dollars by doing it yourself, or for a little more by hiring a professional.

Commercial painters paint the interiors and exteriors of non-residential buildings. Due to the scale of nonresidential buildings, commercial painters may be responsible for large jobs. Industrial painters prepare and paint massive machinery, vehicles, and buildings, such as bridges and water towers. Industrial painters may also apply protective coatings to structures or equipment to prevent corrosion. Industrial painters must confine their workspace to avoid dangerous products from polluting the environment or endangering the public. To avoid costly errors, industrial and commercial painters must execute quality control and quality assurance.

In pressure washing, high-pressure water is sprayed over a surface to remove loose paint and other contaminants such as mold, filth, dust, muck, and dirt. The flow rate of a mechanical pressure washer is frequently fixed and not changeable. The pump’s pressure is specified in psi but may be changed by altering the unloader valve. There are machines that create pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa).

Pressure washing and power washing are often used interchangeably, and whether they are genuinely separate techniques is debated. A pressure washer has two to four high-pressure jets on a revolving bar that swivels while water flows. As a result, flat surfaces are cleaned quickly and uniformly.

We can take care of your commercial and residential painting and pressure washing needs. We offer our clients prompt, professional, and friendly service EVERY TIME. Our main goal at Benezet & Associates is to stay on top of the changes in the industry so we can offer you the latest and most current information and services.
