Planning is the most important step. You will need to plan the details carefully. Each type of commercial build-out comes with its own set of necessities. Make sure to account for how clients and visitors approach and use your building. Have the building build-out designated to accommodate tenants, customers, employees, and all the unique needs the business might have.

Turnkey Vs Tenant Improvement

When planning a build-out it is good to consider who is responsible for building out the space. In turnkey buildout, the tenant brings the owner of the building a design plan during the lease negotiations and the two parties come up with a mutually accessible buildout plan. Turnkey plans include light fixtures, interior walls, electrical outlets, and any other infrastructure requests. The tenants walk into a fully furnished space on move-in day.

In comparison, in tenants’ buildouts, the tenants steer the buildouts. They choose their own professionals and materials as long as they are within the budget negotiated in the lease. Tenants need to come into negotiations with a budget projection for all the improvements they plan to make.

Financing the Build-out

Before the buildout, discuss with your landlord on who will cover what costs. To avoid confusion, have the terms put in writing. The cost of the building varies in different markets. Building age and condition have an impact on the price of the buildout. New buildings with spaces that are untouched bring a bigger price compared to older buildings with finishes, ceilings, and other things that tenants may choose to reuse.

Keep Your Brand In Mind

When planning for a commercial building build-out, it is important to keep your brand in mind. Think about what the space will say about your business. Whether you want something traditional that reflects your business history or something sleek and modern that speaks to your innovation.
