As your commercial renovation experts, we know the ins and outs of renovating your office space in the most efficient way possible–so where should you start? There are many things to consider, from your needs and goals for the renovation to your materials needed. Here are some tips to help you get started on your commercial renovation project!
What is your main goal with this renovation? Do you want to make your office more functional? Do you want a more open layout for your employees? These are important questions to ask yourself before you consider a redesign, as you want your renovation to meet ALL of your needs and goals–not just a few. Once you identify these, you can determine what is necessary for your renovation and move forward from there.
Once you have your objectives identified, you can research the best, most qualified contractor. Compare your options based on previous projects completed by the contractor, which services are offered, and the quality of their prior work. It is imperative that you choose a qualified contractor because this can make the difference between paying twice if it is completed incorrectly, or paying once for it to be done right the first time. Sometimes, the best-priced contractor may not be the best option, as the quality and longevity of the work may not be what you require.
This may seem like common sense, but sometimes establishing a budget beforehand can be complicated. Establishing a budget can greatly affect your renovation as different materials come with different ranges of prices and influence the overall price of your project. It is important to talk with your contractor about these different options when it comes to working within your budget.
Renovations take time, but setting a realistic schedule can help your contractor out greatly when it comes to creating an efficient and effective timeline. Communicating with your contractor about the exact timeline you expect can streamline your process even more as you will know exactly what to expect and when to expect it.
Lastly, but most importantly, communicate with your contractor! Communication is the key to success, especially when it comes to renovation. Assuring you are happy with the process from start to finish should be your contractor’s ultimate goal, so vocalize your concerns and any questions you may have. This established communication will not only make you feel more comfortable about the project at hand but will also help your contractor be successful on their end as well.
