As the capital city of Texas, Austin is what many people think of when they initially think of Texas. It’s the fourth most populous city in Texas, with an estimated population of just under a million people in 2019. This has made it a great option for businesses looking to put down roots.
No matter where you come from, the Austin skyline is definitely a gorgeous sight, with a mix of ultra-modern and historical buildings. There are 170 high-rises in Austin, as there have been two skyscraper booms over the city’s history, and the tallest building is a whopping 690 feet tall.
This variety of high rises and the city’s love of small businesses both mean that industrial services have also grown in recent years. No matter what industrial services you’re looking to invest in for your business’s buildings, City Wide may be able to help you gather them.
When you have a building that your business works out of, you need to make sure you’re committing to maintenance on that building. There are many different ways you may need to maintain a building. In general, you’ll be looking at three elements of maintenance: beauty, structural integrity and any DIY elements you introduce.
Though it might not seem as important as structural integrity, beauty is something to keep in mind. That’s because in a city that loves its aesthetic as much as Austin, you definitely need to be paying attention to the external elements of your building. City Wide’s services, including window washing, pressure washing and high dusting, can help.
Structural integrity helps ensure that the building itself doesn’t fall over, which makes it a very important element of your building’s health. It’s especially important in an area with a lot of history like Austin. With building restoration, anchor inspection and anchor installation all available through City Wide, it’s easier than you might think.
Sometimes, you might decide to do some building maintenance elements on your own, whether you choose to subcontract them or have a member of your team handle them. You can use City Wide’s services, including equipment rentals and anchor load test certification, to do just that.
With both old and new buildings scattered all throughout Austin, it just makes sense that you would need to invest a substantial amount into the upkeep of your business’s buildings. However, the type of building you have may give an indication as to what type of upkeep you need to pay attention to first.
If your business is in a historic building, chances are good that you’ll need to consider structural upkeep first and foremost. Structural upkeep is an important element of a historic building, especially because historic buildings may have had a less well-maintained structure in the first place.
However, if you’re in a more modern building, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you can ignore structural upkeep entirely. It’s much more likely that you’ll be able to focus on the external beauty of the building, but you should always keep structural health in mind.
