New Industrial Complex Comes To 22000 Highway 16

On July 13, 2021, planning officials voted with one accord to approve a permit for the development of a 15,000 square-foot industrial building on 22000 Highway 16, according to Siloam Springs Herald-Leader. Senior planner Ben Rhoads said the approval of the licenses was recommended by city staff based on two conditions. The city staff requires the developer to construct a sidewalk, or pay a fee of about $445. The developer should also secure a site for drainage and utility easement.

According to Rhoad, the city board will review the permit for the new development on Aug. 3, 2021. This is the second review of the license. The first review was on April 13 during the planning committee meeting and was approved on May 4. If you’re an aspiring developer, note that obtaining permits is just part of the development process. Whether you’re starting a manufacturing business or developing a commercial business center, you’ll need to follow other steps, including budgeting and designing. Below are a few things you should know about the industrial development process.

Planning the project

Without a plan, your industrial development is likely to fail. Therefore, start by finding an ideal location for construction projects. Make sure your construction site is in an area zoned for commercial business. The site should also be accessible and have all the essential utilities. Once you’ve identified the perfect location, introduce your general contractor and designer to the site. Doing so paves the way for the design and budgeting process to begin. Your architects and constructors will help you determine the size and function of your industrial complex and help you choose and calculate the cost of building products and equipment. These professionals will also create contracts highlighting the project timeline and cost of each construction phase.

The pre-construction process 

The pre-construction phase involves various activities, including submitting your design plans to the town planning department. Before issuing a permit, local officials may request slight design changes to ensure you comply with the set standards. Next, purchase insurance policies like workers’ compensation and builders risk insurance. You want to be sure you’re protected against financial and legal consequences that might arise in case of an accident during the construction phase. As a developer, you’ll also need to establish a project management team to help you procure materials like titanium metal sheet, concrete, wood, and steel. Since titanium sheets are durable and corrosion-resistant, they are ideal for building food contact surfaces. Builders also use titanium plates for other architectural applications like roof cladding and canopies.

Starting construction

The construction process begins with a meeting arranged by the project manager. During this meeting, the project manager and building team make decisions regarding work hours, quality control, material storage, and site access. Then the groundbreaking will be carried out, followed by foundation building. Other activities carried out during construction include site excavation, underground utility installation, framing, roofing, exterior and interior work, and steel erection.

Understanding the commercial construction process is critical for the success of your development project. So, before you can start your project, familiarize yourself with zonal codes, get to know which permits are required, and hire a reputable design-build contractor. Also, find out the materials and equipment you need, create a budget, and set a timeline.
