Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 1, 2009
To help commercial real estate developers solve construction issues and build the most successful project they can, general contractor Englewood Construction has launched a blog and YouTube channel, both called Hard Hat Chat. Based in Schiller Park, Ill., Englewood Construction is a national general contractor specializing in commercial construction.
The Hard Hat Chat blog and YouTube channel are primarily geared for commercial real estate developers but provide content relevant to all parties involved in commercial real estate construction.
"These are difficult times for the commercial real estate industry, particularly for developers," said William DiSanto, president of Englewood Construction. "There is a lot of hesitancy and confusion out there about when, where and why they should build a new project or renovate an existing one in this economic climate.
"As general contractors, we saw a real need for some honest information, sound advice and value-based news on how to build a successful development and solve construction issues, so we created the blog and video channel to help educate everyone," continued DiSanto.
Current blog topics range from "How Developers Can Decrease Operating Costs by Thousands of Dollars" to "What a Chicago 2016 Summer Olympics Means for Chicago's Retail and Restaurant Construction Industry," while one video raises the question, "How Financially Secure Are Your Vendors?"
"I've always felt that having a dialogue was the best way to improve my knowledge base and in turn have a successful general contractor business," said DiSanto. "We hope the blog and videos help anyone who has an interest in commercial real estate construction learn something new and connect with others in the industry.
