Your building can have a huge impact on the potential success of your business. But, it isn’t really your job to be an architect, engineer or commercial contractor. That’s where we come in.
Often, commercial or office tenants moving into a building get an allowance from the property owner for any interior build-out or improvements that are required, specific to the business. This may come in the form of actual payment to building contractors or in the form of some period of free rent.
If you have not yet negotiated your lease, then the best way to proceed is to first determine what you will need and what it will cost. Consider the space and layout required for you retail shop, office or other other establishment. Gozen Construction price framing, wiring, walls, duct work, ceilings, floors, fixtures and more to determine an estimate. Once you understand what you need, you are in a good position to negotiate. As you negotiate, consider what the costs will be. If the landlord will offer you direct payment for construction expenses, this is very helpful. Or they may offer you an allowance against your first few months of rent. Keep in mind that the landlord is benefitting too, as the construction is improving the property.
If you have already completed the negotiation of the lease, perhaps you already have a designer or architect. We can work with the architect of your choice or we can can implement the design process for you. Then, we take care of everything, including all permitting, materials and fixtures procurement, sub-contractors, and inspections. In the end, you get a great space for your business, without the headaches, so you can focus on the business itself.
