Jeff Grow, Commercial Manager for Universal Contracting

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2013

With over 20 years of building experience here in Orlando and the entire state of Florida, Jeff Grow has built relationships with business owners, property managers, architects, engineers, designers and subcontractors. Grow will use these business relationships to help make Universal Contracting a major competitor in the Orlando market. He has worked over the entire state of Florida and has had the opportunity to work with some of the largest builders in the country. He has proven skills in project management, estimating, contract negotiations, scheduling, business development, training, team building, safety and administration.

Grow brings talent and experience to Universal Contracting in several key areas:

Tenant Improvement Contractor– For high-rise tenant improvements and mid-rise and garden office complexes, Universal Contracting performs renovation, demolition and construction work with expertise in typical store front features such as metal frames and insulated glass, as well as siding, windows and doors, stucco, painting, interior and exterior renovations, roofing, water intrusion, and restoration. Grow maintains optimal job production and a timely schedule with full awareness of constraints due to neighboring tenants.

Commercial Build Outs - Universal Contracting deftly affects space conversion of any commercial property - retail, office or industrial. Whether working off of the client’s drawings or creating the design themselves, Grow and his team are able to create a completely new look that reflects the architect’s intent.

Commercial Renovations - Getting a facelift may be the only thing needed to help make a business more profitable. Whether it’s simply painting the outside structure or completely rebuilding the exterior façade, Grow has worked with business owners to come up with the right solutions for their business. It’s extremely important to a business owner to maintain operation of their business while construction is being performed and to expedite these repairs. Grow has a vast amount of experience in scheduling and project management that results in a better, timely, more cost effective job.

Stucco Failure - Over the past several years, builders and developers have built multifamily dwellings and commercial buildings using subpar building materials in order to keep costs down. This, combined with the lack of knowledgeable supervisors overseeing the installation process has created several problems with stucco failure. Grow’s goal as Commercial Manager at Universal Contracting is to work with these building owners to help correct these problems from the outside in, and to eliminate further structural damage and possible mold. His extensive knowledge of the product, application, and the different types of stucco failure will help achieve this goal.
