Commercial Construction

What is the difference between this and regular commercial construction. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Light Commercial development would be a single commercial enterprise or a strip mall. Regular commercial development would be a Big Box store or a Mall. The difference from an engineering point would be the need for parking, emergency exits and fire and safety considerations. There is a different concern in getting people to safety from the Great American Mall than the local 7-11. The importance may be the same but the logistics would be different.

    Light implies small jobs arround people's houses. (building a wall, or digging a rain gutter)regular would be more like jobs for buisness's (McDonalds, Dentists. . . )

    An example of light commercial construction would be a single-story strip-mall with spaces for 6 to10 1000 sq. Ft. Offices/shops. Another example: A small club-house for a golf course. A restaurant (regular or fast-food) wouldn't necessarily be light commercial, because of the extra utility requirements (gas, electric, and sewer). Regular commercial construction would be multi-story office buildings, warehouses, large stores with high ceilings, 2 or 3-story parking structures. .
