7 of the Most Common Construction Projects

Construction can take on numerous forms depending on the needs of the client. Every commercial structure will have minor variations but each project will also have similar basic aspects to the job. When choosing a commercial construction company, it is important to select one that understands the nuanced differences. Lions Den Construction has put together a list of the seven most common commercial building projects.

Retail & Grocery Stores

Retail locations are made with consumer traffic in mind, so the layout is very important. Brand-new construction and renovation projects should both take the fluidity of movement into account when creating an effective commercial space. The outer part of the building, as well as the inside, should create a welcoming environment.

Fine Dining & Restaurants

It should be no surprise that this type has made our list. Be it fine dining or chain locations, restaurants are very common forms of construction. While chain stores need to follow certain conformity, independent establishments have more room to create a unique atmosphere within their structure. The main difference between this type of project and others are the strict kitchen regulations that must be adhered to for public safety.

Hotel, Motels, & Lodging

After dining projects, those that deal with lodging are the next most common type. Most commercial lodging locations such as hotels and B& B’s place a large amount of importance on guest privacy, ease of access and levels of customer comfort. The bigger the project the more experience a building company will need in order to complete the job properly and on schedule. There is other specialized knowledge such as soundproofing and lodging layout design that is important for a successful project.


Offices and office buildings come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the type of project, there may be several smaller businesses of other types within the same structure. A building company that has experience with fire exits, integrated floor plans, and other commercial aspects is crucial for a well laid out finished product.

Industrial Structures

Offices may make up a lot of the buildings that you see in the center of town, but industrial buildings are equally substantial. Buildings that are used to produce parts, products, and other goods will need to be housed in a structure that is big enough for the machines used to make them. A construction company that is familiar with the safety measures needed for industrial buildings will make the project go smoothly.


Hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, and other specialty medical buildings are some of the most complex, yet common types of construction. The builders will need to know how to create a layout that is easy to navigate while also supporting the life-saving equipment and activities that go on inside. Lions Den is a recognized company of many custom medical construction projects throughout Toronto.

Sports & Athletics

There are many types of athletic structures that range from small gymnasiums inside of a school to massive stadiums in the middle of a city. Commercial gyms and fitness centers also fall under this category. Knowing how to complete these projects while ensuring the building is safe is a key skill to possess.
