If you are a landlord with space you need to fill, keeping your space attractive and updated falls under your list of responsibilities. Whether you are adding new or existing properties, sometimes tenants cannot use a commercial space without interior improvements or a complete build out. Landlords who are located in Denver should consider hiring a Tenant Improvement Contractor to help them execute the job properly.
New Commercial Spaces
Consider the process of constructing an office building; brand new commercial buildings provide a space that is easy to renovate and design. These spaces are usually wide open with no areas designated for specific uses. The landlord of the available space will likely have a budget for the build out in mind when negotiating the lease of the space. The exact budget will depend on the commercial space and the changes and alterations that must be made to make the space ideal for its primary purpose.
Brand new building renovations can either be executed quickly, or they can take some time. These types of construction tasks often require building walls, running utilities, and laying down flooring, and this can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. It is important to have a solid construction team in place to make sure the project follows the expected timeline. You also need a company who requires a reasonable cost to build out your space so you can budget appropriately.
Existing Commercial Spaces
With existing commercial spaces, renovating available space can be a challenge because the space was most likely designed to fit the needs of the previous tenant, and most of the time, it is very difficult to fill a space that was built for the same purpose. This is why landlords in Denver need tenant improvement construction experts they can trust.
Every company has a different set of needs and requirements. A previous tenant may have had a more traditional space, with several closed offices with prominent wood structures and surfaces. The next tenant may want a more industrial feel, with large open work spaces and metal material used throughout the space. The build out for the new tenant would require removing the unneeded offices and unwanted wood material, followed by recreating open office space with metal structures. Much like renovating a new commercial building, renovating an existing space will take time, and you will need a reliable contractor that can complete the project within a reasonable time frame and budget, while producing desirable results.
Complete Project Management from End to End
Executing office build out or reconstruction can be a tedious task, regardless of whether it is a brand new building or an existing space. The contractor that is hired to organize and supervise the project should know every aspect the projects requires, including estimating and controlling the cost to renovate and construct the space.
It starts with understanding the tenant’s needs and requirements. An office space is much more than just a few walls and doors. In most companies, it is a space where people work and business is done, and should be a reflection of the who is using the space. All of this this is factored into the specific needs for how space will be used and how the contractor should design the space.
Space planning is part of the process, and questions like, “where will people sit?, “will there be open office space or are private meeting rooms required?”, and “do certain departments need specific spaces?” contribute to the layout of the space, where walls go, and where utilities are routed.
Collaborating with designers is part of the process. Hiring a contractor for this part in the project is extremely beneficial because they can handle the changes to the infrastructure, while working with designers that will handle the aesthetic needs. This requires close collaboration from the contractor with everything from flooring choices to paint colors to metal finishes.
The contractor handles the permitting for the entire project, which means meeting with local regulating agencies to present plans and to make any modifications that might be needed to stay within requirements. It also means bringing in inspectors when needed to complete all final inspections and approvals for the occupancy permit.
Hiring and managing sub-contractors is time consuming and should be handled by a reliable and organized general contractor. The contractor can manage the overall project timeline and keep the sub-contractors on time and on budget, and they are ultimately responsible for the quality of the work that is produced.Reporting on the project’s progress is very important, and both the landlord and the tenant need to know how far progressed the project is at all times.
