Multi-family buildings are one of the most in-demand and constantly evolving commercial real estate markets across the Pittsburgh landscape. Fueled by a decidedly competitive marketplace, developers are under added pressure to provide wide-ranging amenity packages with smaller but modern units.
Franjo Construction is in a perfect position to deliver everything from metropolitan apartment towers to suburban garden-style condos and everything in between. Our aim is to deliver high value residential buildings safely, on time and, ultimately, make each occupant proud to call these spaces “home.”
For assisted-living providers, nothing is more important than maintaining a positive relationship with residents. That’s why building responsibly in the assisted-living market requires a highly personal perspective. Contractors must recognize that the needs of the senior population, their families and their care-givers are as varied as the individuals themselves. On the surface, building assisted-living facilities may appear somewhat comparable to the construction of a hotel. But as a responsible contractor, we are mindful of the key differences. Considerations like safety, security and the need to provide an efficient, highly functional healthcare element are crucial.
Above all, with assisted living facilities, we understand and appreciate that we are building someone’s home. And we believe it should feel like a home.
There’s no learning curve when it comes to building or renovating facilities for clients in the K-12 and higher education spectrum.
Today more than ever, education administrators are being challenged to balance budgets with the need for quality learning environments. They’re constantly in search for intelligent answers to tough questions -- and advice to make the best decisions possible. Today’s classrooms integrate new tools and resources every day, making it vital that education facilities be innovative as well, both at the K-12 level and in higher education.
At Franjo Construction, we take pride in making sure today’s schools meet tomorrow’s needs, whether it’s an elementary school or a private university. Our unique resources include seasoned design build, preconstruction and operations with extensive experience in the programming of new facilities as well as planning for professional complex, phased renovations.
Nowhere is the maxim “time is money” truer than in the hospitality world. After all, a room out-of-service is a roomnight revenue forever lost.
Franjo Construction has completed a variety of new construction and renovation projects for the Pittsburgh area’s finest hotels and restaurants. Our portfolio ranges from elite eateries and boutique hotels to local restaurant and major hotel chains.
We understand the unique requirements of hospitality clients. We focus on expediting schedules to reduce downtime and ensure the maximum revenue possible. We do so by offering a variety of project-specific delivery methods including full design-build capabilities or we can partner with outside A/E firms to deliver a range of construction management services.
Retailers know what they want, and they want it fast. With advertising commitments in place and other grand opening commitments, not to mention the need to generate sales as soon as possible, retailers operate with critical completion dates, leaving the contractor with little choice but to deliver on time and on budget. What’s more, we are always mindful that a retail store’s appearance can be the difference between keeping a loyal customer base or going out of business.
Importantly, too, we understand the uniqueness of retail construction. Our retail construction teams are proficient in fast-track schedules, meticulous in attention to detail and attentive to critical opening dates that drive retail success.
Whether it’s buildouts, remodels or rollouts, retailers can count on our team from budgeting to bidding to turnover and closeout.
At Franjo Construction, we know automotive facilities. We’ve worked with a variety of brands and owners in the Pittsburgh region to meet and exceed their expectations. From showrooms and additional storage facilities to repair facilities, we’re clearly aware of how these spaces need to function together.
We work closely with dealership owners to create a schedule that accomplishes their goals on-time and within budget while minimizing the impact of our work on their customers and business. In fact, many of our automotive construction projects have been built while business remained operational. In these instances, special care is taken to separate our work from the sales, service and operable showroom while managing noise, dust and construction debris.
In brief, we have the resources, experience and know-how to quickly, effectively and affordably place your plans for auto dealership construction into reality.
Today, after years of local universities losing graduates to larger cities, many upbeat, young professionals are deciding to stay and make Pittsburgh home. Did you know that between 2000 and 2014, the number of young college graduates in Pittsburgh grew by 53 percent, or almost 15,000? Why this change? Because the city is offering them a variety of opportunities. STEM careers are particularly in demand as tech giants like Google, Facebook, Apple and Uber maintain offices here. In fact, livability.com recently included Pittsburgh on its list of the best places to put an engineering degree to work.
Moreover, tech start-ups keep growing in the incubators of universities such as Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. Jobs in information, education and healthcare all have outperformed national averages as the city’s reputation grows.
Pittsburgh also offers an eclectic mix of arts, architectures, history and business, giving younger people what they want and need in an open, genial atmosphere. Museums, parks, bike trails, artistic events and affordable housing fashioned out of former industrial buildings have proved appealing to young people setting out on their own. At Franjo Construction, we are in tune with the needs of this younger generation of high-tech workers and are committed to participate in both the residential and commercial markets to serve this new workforce.
Today’s government agencies are under ever-increasing pressure to accommodate the increasing needs of our communities while working with limited financial resources. At Franjo Construction, we work closely with city, country, state and federal agencies to build spaces that bring value to our clients and the communities they serve.
We offer a range of experience constructing government projects. Taking advantage of our familiarity with the unique features in these sectors such as QA/QC requirements and security considerations as well as permitting, licensing, and registration terms allows us to maximize return on investment.
Being a good steward of the dollars entrusted to us by our fellow citizens or our federal government is a distinct honor and it’s our duty to deliver the best value.
Entertainment facility construction can be anything but entertaining if your contractor lacks the essential know-how. Fortunately, we’re quite well-versed.
As your entertainment construction partner, we recognize that the key to success is to create conditions that will produce new experiences and delight each person who walks through your doors.
In this highly competitive market, visitor experience is everything. Few construction projects take on a life larger than themselves like entertainment-based facilities. Clearly, it’s where the physical environment can play a major role in guest satisfaction. Franjo understands the attention to detail and level of quality these projects command. We work to produce not just a building, but a complete experience that visitors can not only take home with them but will bring them back again and again.
Let us put our know-how to work for you as your entertainment builder.
