Tenant Improvements & Build Outs

Tenant improvements, also known as Leasehold improvements, are one of our core competencies. Depending on the spaces previous use the space could need A LOT of work or not much work at all to suit your needs.

We provide a preliminary construction bid before you sign a lease so you have an idea of what the finish out cost will be AND how much of the tenant improvements the landlord is willing to pay for.

Also, as you plan your tenant improvements it’s important that you consider the company’s culture and how it will use the space. This is essential for both your current and future employees and clients. Branding in your entry ways, reception areas, and conference rooms are important and the use of furniture pieces, accent colors and lighting elements will help you emphasize your brand.


How Much Will Tenant Improvements Cost?

The cost of tenant improvements and the time needed to do them depends on the existing condition of the space. If it’s in shell condition (meaning it’s a brand new space that has never been built out) then the tenant improvements will be more expensive and take at least 3-4 months depending on your location. If it’s 2nd generation space (meaning the space has been finished out and occupied before) it will typically cost less to do the tenant finishes and won’t take as long to do them.

What is typically Included in Interior Commercial Tenant Finish Out?

  • Demo or remove existing walls
  • Build or construct new sheet rock walls
  • New flooring such as carpet, vinyl plank, or hardwood floors
  • New paint
  • New blinds
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • HVAC (heating ventilation air conditioning)
  • Disability changes or upgrades
  • New dropped ceiling or exposed ceiling
  • Windows next to office doors called side lights
  • Anything else previously negotiated with the landlord

Tenant improvements are required in most commercial spaces as it’s very rare that you find a space that meets your needs exactly. Some sort of interior build out will typically be needed. It’s important that you negotiate a favorable tenant improvement allowance with the landlord so you can minimize your out-of-pocket costs to cover the rest. Consider hiring a good architect that can help you determine what tenant finish outs you want to do.

If you have any questions about tenant interior build outs don’t hesitate to give us a call.
