Design-Build Service: Taking the Stress Out of Tenant Improvements


Written by on November 20th, 2017

When business owners look at purchasing commercial space, it can often seem like a daunting process. In contrast to residential real estate where homes are most often purchased completely finished, commercial space is typically sold as a “shell” where you will be responsible for designing your new space, complete with the layout and interior finishings of your choice. When you think about it this makes sense, considering that no two business needs are exactly alike. However, as most entrepreneurs know, when you are busy operating a business that seems to be taking all of your time and energy, the thought of having to design an office, make finishing decisions, etc., seems like it would be more than enough to push you over the edge, or more often than not, provide you with a reason to delay purchasing space until a future date.

In the digital age, there are countless sites online where you can go to generate some ideas for what you would like your ideal space to look like. Having a rough idea of what your space needs are today (eg. how many offices, privacy requirements, etc.) as well as how you’d see your business growing over the few years and how your space needs may change, should be enough to get the conversation going and determine a budget that will work for you.
