If you’re planning any kind of upfits and renovations to your commercial office space, you are likely working with a general contractor who can help you manage your project from start to finish. As you discuss your renovation plans, there are a few important factors you’ll want to communicate with your general contractor about in order to make your renovation go smoothly.
- Budget – One of the first things you’ll want to discuss is your budget. Even in the early stages when you are seeking estimates on the renovations and construction you plan for your office space, setting a clear number on how much you want to spend is important. This will allow your general contractor to better gauge what can be done within your budgetary limitations.
- Project Alternatives – With any construction project, it is expected that there will be times when changes need to be made. By planning for alternate solutions ahead of time, you can help you general contractor get a better idea of the results you want and how to navigate unexpected changes when they arise. This could be as simple as choosing two types of flooring, alternate paint colors, or room configurations to better match the space.
- Timeline – Because your business is how you make your money, having office renovations that go on forever isn’t ideal. Giving your general contractor an idea of your preferred timeline (with some wiggle room for changes, of course) will help them stay on track to getting your office area back open as soon as possible.
