If you are someone overseeing the construction of condominiums, you undoubtedly have a lot to consider outside of the dwellings themselves. Sure, furnishing the actual condominium itself is part of your daily duties, but what about the common area so many of these types of buildings share? You should be strategic in how you design this area to not only make residents comfortable but also entice them to keep signing the lease.

Look no further than the online catalog. We specialize in all kinds of multifamily construction and will take your condominiums to the next level with fully furnished countertops, cabinet doors, trims, and other forms of decor. You want the best for your tenants, and SCS will always provide the best. Providing a clean and unique aesthetic for each condominium is not only fun for SCS, but it is something we are familiar with. 

SCS understands completely how different condominium complexes are from apartment complexes. Designing and constructing condominiums is effectively building dozens upon dozens of different, yet identical, mini-homes. Let SCS help design and construct each aspect of the individual units to make the complex as a whole a beautiful experience for your tenants. Detail is key, and SCS are the key masters!

SCS has and continues to work on various different projects across the multifamily living spectrum with pride and quality.

Student Housing

Student housing is always stressful. You need to work within a budget but want to construct something that will last for years to come. On top of all of that, you need to design common areas or even communal study areas. This can put a lot on your plate as a project manager. You have enough to worry about; why not let someone else take the reins on backsplashes and woodwork while you focus on the rest of the project.

SCS has everything you need to fully outfit each area of need in your student housing project. SCS will provide high-quality work and have the experience to back it up. Student housing is not new to them, so they know exactly how to get the job done and what each job calls for. There are dozens and dozens of options on the website, but if you do not see what you are looking for, simply contact us and get a consultation.

Student housing projects are a ton of fun for the team over at Superior Commercial Solutions. While each living space will ultimately reflect the students that set up camp there, SCS will make sure to create an incredible blank canvas for each and every one of those tenants. Maybe a combination of dark-colored slab cabinets with a shimmery white quartz countertop will do the trick. The possibilities are endless with SCS.

We also understand that sometimes accidents happen in student housing; most of the time, it is out of the school or building superintendent’s control. After all, how can you take into account each and every student that stays in the assigned housing? You can count on the quality craftsmanship of SCS to make sure our line of products stands up to cabinets getting slammed or tables getting bumped into. You can count on SCS.

If you are looking to see some of our past work for yourself, be sure to check out the Utah Valley University housing. Superior Commercial Solutions was tasked with the construction of all things student housing for Utah Valley University and quickly got to work. Cabinets, countertops, basically everything but the college degree came out of a Superior Commercial Solutions warehouse and can still be seen standing today.


Apartment building construction is a daunting task reserved for the more responsible project managers—every decision matters in this multi-family dwelling with a thin margin of error. With the average time to build an apartment complex taking about a year, you have enough to worry about as it is. SCS has a strong history with multifamily construction, especially in the field of apartment buildings and their amenities.

  • Superior Commercial Solutions covers a wide variety of apartment construction and does not shy away from taking on any project, fulfilling any and all needs for you. Our up-to-date knowledge of this type of construction is what separates SCS from the competition.

SCS works tirelessly with our clients when it comes to nailing the requirements for multi-family dwellings. You can check out a massive gallery of our work on the SCS website and get an idea of what we are fully capable of.

High-Rise Apartments

High rises are common in most cities. The high rise reaches famously tall heights and has a slew of requirements that need to be meticulously followed out of fear of collapsing or otherwise running into hiccups to the point of failure to get the job done. That being said, if you are the one running the show as far as construction goes, then you already have enough stress going on in your head trying to organize everything.

High-rise apartments are a tall task, literally and figuratively. You have enough to worry about aside from what color the cabinets should be in each dwelling.  Let Superior Commercial Solutions do that work for you. With a long list of clients in the housing industry, apartments are no stranger to SCS regardless of size. SCS works tirelessly to make sure every project manager has everything we need to do our job correctly.

Construction on a high-rise apartment can begin as soon as you are ready. Simply set up a consultation with SCS and discuss your needs. There are plenty of options on the interactive website for you to choose from, with an easy user interface to go with it. Give SCS a call before you begin construction on countertops, cabinets, common areas, and more. Feel free to ask about switching up colors and materials; we are very flexible.

Every high rise needs a lobby; let SCS take the lead on yours to make it welcoming and eye-catching. Accommodations should be a highlight in common areas as well, whether it is shelving to sell snacks or countertops to fill out paperwork, finish a coffee, or even designing an entire dining area with a full kitchen to get your day started off right. 

Luckily, Superior Commercial Solutions has all the answers for your next high-rise project. However, perhaps you are not working with high-rise apartments or construction. If this is the case, then keep reading to learn about what SCS can do for you if you are managing mid-rise apartments. 

Mid-Rise Apartments

Mid-rise commercial buildings might be a little simpler compared to high-rise commercial buildings. However, it still requires a tremendous amount of planning. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has multiple requirements for any building exceeding three floors or stories. This can result in you needing to get a little bit creative when it comes to amenities or other types of construction that is accommodating for all.

You obviously cannot dance around this as it is not only unethical but could result in major fines, re-construction, or you will possibly be blacklisted from your field for neglect. Mid-rise apartments or other commercial buildings require a level of thought that goes beyond single-family living spaces. You will have to make sure the foundation is not only structurally sound but adhere to every guideline put in front of you.

  • SCS is no stranger to these guidelines and requirements, boasting years and years of experience and filled to the brim with up-to-date knowledge. It can be difficult tackling these projects alone, so let SCS help guide you through it if you are unfamiliar.
  • SCS is fully stocked with products and ideas to help fulfill these guidelines and reinforce your commercial building with multi-family construction you can count on time and again. 
  • With an experienced staff and fully-loaded product line, SCS has everything you need to complete your construction projects on time and without a ton of waiting around, thanks to their nationwide shipping. There really is not an excuse to call or click today and get a quote from our consultation team.

After the initial construction, be sure to check out our variety of cabinets and countertops to see how you can add that finishing touch to your commercial building. SCS products are not strictly limited to kitchens and living rooms, so we can help ease the stress of designing rooms all over your building, including lobbies, common areas, break rooms for employees, and so much more, keeping morale high and guests happy.

Assisted Living

Assisted living is one of the most honorable types of multi-family construction out there right now. Having the mind to want to build something to take care of our elders and keep them safe is a mentality we should all be so lucky to share. Our seniors deserve the world, so their living conditions must be a top priority when it comes to constructing a building designed for assisted living. SCS has everything you need to get started.

Aside from having a long history of designing and constructing assisted living facilities in the state of Utah, SCS ships all over the United States. Nation-wide shipping not only keeps your project on track but also makes sure that any last-minute additions can be added seamlessly to your order. SCS has more than enough experience when it comes to getting an assisted living project done and is well documented on our website. 

Speaking of which, be sure to check out our past projects on the site and take a look at the different assisted living centers we have had a hand in building and designing. SCS works quickly to get pieces to you, as multi-family construction can be expedited quicker due to uniform design qualities. By picking out some quality countertops or kitchen cabinets, you will surely be able to find what you need to get a job well done.

It does not stop at living spaces, though. SCS specializes in designing all sorts of rooms like lobbies and common areas. SCS will guide you through creating the perfect rec room for your assisted living space and watch as your tenants marvel at the beautiful marble adornments and functional yet stunning cabinet space. Superior Commercial Solutions has an answer for just about every problem known to assisted living centers.

SCS recognizes how important it is to get these types of buildings up and running quickly and efficiently. We realize that lives are on the line when it comes time to open the doors and start accepting tenants. You can trust that SCS will take design and construction very seriously and not cut corners just to save time. You can rely on our experience and creativity to take your project to the next level without any problems.

Single Family Homes Versus Multi-Family Homes

Superior Commercial Solutions specializes in multi-family dwellings. These living spaces include all the aforementioned living spaces like apartment buildings, assisted living centers, and student housing. If these are the projects you are managing, then SCS is for you. Single-family dwellings strictly involve the construction of a traditional home, a single condominium, or something similar. Anything that houses one family.

Anything that is designed to cater to one single-family is exactly what the name implies, a single-family home. SCS caters to multi-family living spaces. Our products are designed in a uniform fashion and price-pointed to help save you time and money on massive construction jobs. A single-family home will likely want to stick with a general contractor unless they want to order our products in bulk which is not always ideal.

While SCS always wants to welcome creativity, especially when it comes to designing a multi-family living space, a single-family home will likely be less uniform and want each room to look different or eclectic. Our work specializes in perfecting a single space and then making sure each space shares that perfection. SCS has experience in taking on huge projects like high-rise apartment complexes, so no design is too big for our team.

  • With fast and easy consultation, SCS will quickly take your vision and run with it, helping to bridge the gap between concept and execution. It can be easy to design something, but it’s an entirely different task when it comes to making it happen.
  • Super Commercial Solutions’ goal is to create vibrant living spaces for everyone to enjoy but also parallel that with quality work that you can rely on day in and day out to not only meet codes and regulations, but also work for your tenants.
  • SCS marble surfaces, quartz countertops, and top-of-the-line wooden cabinet sets are all ready to go for your next multi-family construction project, regardless of where you are in the country. Thanks to our network of warehouses, we are able to ship materials to you wherever your project is.

The hardest decision you will have to make with SCS is trying to decide which kind of countertop or cabinet you will want for your project. From a classic five-piece shaker design or a modern-day slab door cabinet, we have dozens upon dozens of styles to choose from. Our countertops offer the same variety; SCS has beautiful quartz ready to go as soon as you are. Do not forget to ask about our marble options as well.

Differences in Time

Single-family construction can flat out take longer than multi-family construction can. Both have a number of different regulations to go through. However, building a home requires more approval than building a commercial space. Multi-family construction projects are nearly 100% commercial ventures. Project managers should take note of this for a number of reasons. The demand for multi-family dwellings is simply higher.

For example, if there is a college (aside from most community colleges), there is going to be student housing. This is a huge draw for out-of-state students and can make or break a student’s decision when it comes to committing to one school over another. Not having desirable living conditions is not only wrong from a human standpoint, but it will always work against you when it comes time to recruit new students for your school.

  • That is a guarantee, regardless of whether it is in a city or not. People want to live somewhere that does not gross them out, and parents do not want their children to live away from home unless it is an acceptable space that meets a certain standard.
  • These student houses are going to need each dwelling to be uniformly designed as far as kitchen construction goes, not only from a functional standpoint but also from a budget standpoint as well. SCS understands that every dollar counts and makes it easy to find what you need to get the project off the ground.
  • This is where you can confidently rely on Superior Commercial Solutions to make sure each room looks as good as the last and features some of the best quality construction available.

Single-family dwellings are more difficult to build out of the blue. We are no longer in the days of pioneering where you can just plant a flag in an empty lot and build a home, no questions asked. There is zoning, property lines, gas lines, and all sorts of other things that can slow you down. Just ask your neighbors about the Home Owners Association, you will get a pretty quick idea of what it takes to build from scratch.

SCS wants to help serious project managers get their vision seen by everyone in our community. If you are an architect or someone overseeing the construction of a multi-family living space, then you know that there are a lot of people relying on you to get the job done. SCS understands how important your time is and how important it is to get you the products you need in the time frame provided.
