Commercial property is the focal point of your business—your operations rely on its dependability and durability. When your space needs a building renovation, there are many factors to consider before rushing through remodeling. Continue reading this article to learn about common commercial renovation mistakes and the best contractors in the business to hire.
As a business owner, you likely want to increase your commercial space’s value. Aesthetic appeal aside, commercial renovation projects are also necessary for the safety of the employees within your workplace.
Before you dive in, let’s run through a building renovation checklist to help you avoid common mistakes in renovation work:
The first mistake you can make in the renovation process is how the job gets done. Business owners will sometimes opt for the construction process to be completed in-house. This decision can be made for several reasons, with the leading goal being cutting costs. In the realm of workplace safety, cheap renovation projects are never a route you want to take. Working with an in-house crew without consulting a general contractor can leave the foundation of your renovation exposed. For example, a business owner likely does not know the proper permits and licenses that must be obtained before beginning the project.
Furthermore, in-house teams often lack organizational understanding of the many moving parts required for proper building renovation. From missing general materials to forgetting to schedule an electrician, in-house commercial renovations are a recipe for disaster.
The last thing you want for a commercial property following an expensive renovation is frustration with the outcome of the job. So, before you begin, have your entire commercial property laid out for a contractor and highlight all the building renovation needs. Identifying issues at your commercial property is helpful, and pointing out safety hazards in the current condition is crucial for a general contractor to complete the project safely.

When a building renovation is complete, a business owner could be upset to discover that too much money was spent. Over-budgeting can result from rushing to begin the project to choosing unnecessary and expensive materials. Time and energy should be invested in beginning a commercial building renovation ahead of schedule while working to hire the best contractor for the project.
Preparing for a building renovation is a job in itself. Commercial building renovation will be expensive, but never underestimate its importance for the safety of your employees. Begin commercial building remodeling with a few of these suggestions:
Avoid flashy features in the renovation process. Instead, focus your investments on eco-friendly materials that will prolong the life of your commercial building to make the building renovation worthwhile. In recent building renovation, owners and general contractors have successfully installed LED lighting and solar panels that benefit the commercial property.
When we said planning your commercial building renovation was a job in itself, take our word for it. Even before creating a building renovation checklist, form a team that will oversee different operations of the renovation project. A hiring committee should meet with different contractors while liaisons supervise commercial construction, architect engineers, and other areas of the construction process once work commences.
Rent space to continue productivity well ahead of schedule. Another trick to cutting costs throughout building renovation is scheduling employees to work from home if this does not disrupt your operations.
Work with your contractor to acquire the proper permits to begin renovation work. The legal documentation will certify your commercial property for alteration throughout the building renovation.
