Can Your Commercial Painter Handle an Aggressive Timeline?

One of our very top pri­or­i­ties here at Kaloutas is our client’s sched­ule. Unlike the res­i­den­tial world, where the avail­abil­i­ty and time­line is deter­mined large­ly by the ser­vice provider, our com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al clients have a sched­ule that is already rolling. And, like a train that’s left the sta­tion, it real­ly can’t be inter­fered with.

Our large team and diver­si­ty of ser­vice exper­tise allow us to flu­id­ly adapt to these often rig­or­ous sched­ul­ing needs. Using a cre­ative, solu­tions-based approach, we do what it takes to make sure dead­lines are met and oper­a­tions are unhindered.

As a per­fect exam­ple, let’s take a clos­er look at the com­mer­cial paint­ing ser­vices we pro­vid­ed for this super­mar­ket in Brighton, MA.

How Long Does a Com­mer­cial Paint­ing Project Last?

If you’re won­der­ing how long a com­mer­cial paint­ing project lasts, it depends on inte­ri­or com­mer­cial paint­ing or exte­ri­or com­mer­cial paint­ing to deter­mine your time­line. With exte­ri­or paint­ing, you must plan accord­ing­ly to the sea­sons and at the end of the day, you’re still at the mer­cy of the weath­er. How­ev­er, with the right paint­ing con­trac­tor, you will be able to plan the right time­frame for you and your busi­ness with­out affect­ing oper­a­tions, yet main­tain­ing safe­ty stan­dards for your employ­ees and customers. 

When imple­ment­ing inte­ri­or com­mer­cial paint­ing, you must work with some­one who under­stands the ins and outs of your busi­ness and build­ing. A con­trac­tor who has a com­pre­hen­sive under­stand­ing of how you work will be able to work around your sched­ule; days, nights, week­ends, with­out dis­rupt­ing oper­a­tions. Though it depends on the size of your build­ing and what you need redone, Kaloutas will assess these things to deter­mine timeframe:

  • Need­ed repair before repainting

  • Type of build­ing and oper­a­tions and what type of paint will standup against dai­ly wear and tear

  • The cur­rent sea­son and how it’ll affect repairs and paint drying

  • Nec­es­sary main­te­nance before paint can be applied

Inte­ri­or Com­mer­cial Paint­ing with a Tight Dead­line in Massachusetts

There were a cou­ple of fac­tors at play that made care­ful project plan­ning, flex­i­bil­i­ty, and coor­di­na­tion essential:

  • Extreme­ly Tight Dead­line — Our client’s inte­ri­or ren­o­va­tions were based on a fast-mov­ing schedule.
  • The Pres­ence of Oth­er Trades — This is a fair­ly rou­tine occur­rence for us, but in this case there was a par­tic­u­lar­ly high num­ber of oth­er trade pro­fes­sion­als at work.
  • Man­ag­ing Inven­to­ry — The store was live and func­tion­ing, mean­ing that we need­ed to care­ful­ly cov­er and pro­tect inven­to­ry around our workspace.
  • Overnight Work Hours — As we said above, the store was main­tain­ing nor­mal hours of oper­a­tion dur­ing the day. Our team worked overnight, ensur­ing that the super­mar­ket was ready for use when the doors opened in the morning.
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tion — A high lev­el of coor­di­na­tion requires an even high­er lev­el of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. The field man­ag­er, fore­man, our oper­a­tions team, and the project man­ag­er all worked close­ly with each oth­er to max­i­mize our efficiency.

What Did Our Inte­ri­or Paint­ing Ser­vices Include?

  • Prep includ­ed sand­ing, seal­ing, and skim coat­ing over the areas where the old FRP (fiber­glass-rein­forced plas­tic) pan­els were tak­en down. This ensured a smooth, blem­ish-free finish.
  • We sprayed out the ACT ceil­ings and grids (these are essen­tial­ly the sus­pend­ed ceil­ing tiles and their frame­work), new duct work, and hard deck ceiling.
  • Applied elec­tro­sta­t­ic coat­ings to all of the met­al cas­es (this elim­i­nates the risk of poten­tial­ly harm­ful sta­t­ic buildup/​discharge).
  • Paint­ed all of the GWB (sheetrock) walls as well.

All aspects of the work was com­plet­ed on-time, as-promised.
