Deciding to renovate your commercial space is a great move as it opens up new opportunities for your brand. When it comes to commercial spaces, you need to keep both functionality and productivity in mind.
That’s why it is important to have a well-thought-out plan, budget, and to hire an expert commercial contractor, like Hyatt Construction to complete the job. The following tips will ensure your successful commercial renovation.
Always leave extra room for unexpected expenses while renovating your commercial space and set the budget. Give priority to basic things like paint, flooring, storage and cut the expenses that aren’t too necessary then.
You can also look for economic incentives when putting together your budget. Certain commercial projects that are likely to bring more jobs to a community may be rewarded by the government with tax credits and other financial incentives.
Find the Right Time
Your commercial building will be closed until the works are completed. This will affect the operation of businesses and organizations from the building.
Hence, it is ideal to undertake the renovation work during the time of year which will affect the organizations the least. The period of the renovation must be kept to a minimum and, if possible, should be done in a phased manner.
Go Green for Sustainability
Minimizing the building’s adverse effect on the environment implies that an organization is considerate towards nature. The usage of solar panels for air conditioning and electricity generation can help minimize the building’s carbon footprint.
Designs that allow maximum amount of natural light into the building will keep the building cooler, and lower the impact on the environment.
Implement Safety Measures
When renovating a commercial property, it is essential to evaluate all the existing safety and security measures. Based on the initial evaluation, make a note of the necessary measures that are needed to be updated or implemented.
Ensure that your office space has a working fire exit, well-lit staircase and corridor, fire alarms, and CCTV systems. It is also recommended to examine the roof, walls, and flooring of the office space as well.
While renovating your commercial space, it is advisable to have a clear picture of who your potential tenant might be. Generally speaking, a law firm and an IT firm tend to have varying requirements, resulting in a different renovation time and budget for each firm.
In case, if you do not have a tenant by the time you begin the renovation, follow a general thumb rule: let 75% of the office space be open plan and 25% by the private office space.
