Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

What is Commercial Architecture?

What is commercial architecture? According to the site WISEGEEK.COM: “Commercial architecture is the design of buildings and structures for use by business. This genre of architecture is focused on combining function with style to meet the needs of a wide range of business types. The impact of commercial architecture can be seen in any major city center, where almost all the buildings are commercial. Architecture is the designing and building of structures designed to provide protection from the elements. The simplest structural requirements are easily satisfied by building a shelter, but an architect’s job is to combine good design elements into a building that meets both current and future needs.

The field of commercial architecture has been in place since the very beginning of architecture, and some of those structures are still available today. Roman and Greek commercial architecture included the building of elaborate structures, complete with courtyards and meeting rooms. Today, most architects work in commercial architecture. There are four stages to commercial architecture projects: obtain client requirements, determine site location, create design proposal and submit project plan and costing.

The first part of the process is to meet with the client and define his needs. The more specific and detailed the requirements, the more accurate the proposal can be. Ask to meet with people at different levels of the organization to understand how they conduct business, the practical requirements and the company’s public image. Look at the corporate image, publications and marketing materials provided by the firm to get a sense of its design tastes and preferences. [READ MORE]

A Commercial Architect Helps Keep You Within the Law

A commercial architect helps keep you within the law.  Even something as simple as not having a permit can result in fines, civil suits, or even criminal charges.  He or she can help you to navigate the permit process.

There are certain things you must go to a professional for.  If you’re seriously ill, you go to see a physician.  If you need professional legal advice, you consult an attorney. For help with your taxes, you hire an accountant.  And for help with building projects, you consult a professional commercial architect.

For more information on commercial architectural design, be sure to read part one and part three as well.
