How much will my construction project cost?

Unsurprisingly, this is by far our most frequently asked question. Unfortunately, it is also the most difficult to answer, as it depends on a vast number of factors. You can get a feel for how much costs can fluctuate by looking through our Need-Based Factors that Influence a Project’s Costs and Guide to Site Selection blog posts. Click on the question to be directed to a chart providing a rough estimate for the cost of different commercial projects, or contact us to thoughtfully compile a plan for your facility that incorporates these and other factors and, afterwards, receive a preliminary estimate regarding the cost of your prospective building.

How do I find out what zoning, design, and signage regulations apply to a site?

Contact the city or county government, whichever has jurisdiction over the site. Click here to go to a page with links to contact and legal information for some of the cities and counties that we most frequently build in.

What is the warranty on your buildings?

Brown Wegher offers at least a 1 year, 100 percent warranty on everything inside a building. Some features (such as the roof and mechanical and electrical equipment) have longer warranty periods. We can discuss the specific warranty for your project and its components when we are in the devlopment process.

What will heat and power costs be?

This varies a great deal depending on the level of investment in HVAC systems, electrical lining and insulation among other things. It also depends on the amount of power consumption within a building.
