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.

How to Improve a Commercial Property Part 1

Part one of a series on commercial architecture explores energy efficient design.  And in the 21st Century, energy efficient buildings are going to be the gold standard…

Energy Efficient Building Design

Call in an Architect to Remodel Your Commercial Property | 480-710-3861

You may want to hire a commercial architect for help with energy efficient building design.  According to this article excerpt from ENERGY STAR, buildings waste a lot of energy:

“Thirty percent. That’s the amount of energy the average commercial building wastes. If you’ve never done anything to save energy at your building, chances are you have a lot of room to improve.In fact, it’s often possible to reduce energy use by 10 percent with little or no cost. Capture easy wins by starting with simple changes, like adjusting temperature set points and making sure lights aren’t on when no one’s around. Then get expert help from a service and product provider, who can take you a step further.”  Source Article

Energy Saving Tips from Your Architect in Phoenix

One trick that is often forgotten is to use natural light.  Not only does it add to your building, it also reduces your need for light during daylight hours.  Also, you can install solar power into your windows, which will help you reduce your electric bill per month.  Another trick is to have a white wall immediately behind a window or skylight.  The reflected sunlight acts like a natural light source.

So as you see, energy efficiency isn’t as hard as you might think.  In fact, it is just a phone call away.  So remember, turn off your lights when you’re not using them, and maybe think about being more energy-star compliant.  And when in doubt, call a commercial architect in Phoenix for some design tips and advice.

This concludes part one of our series. For more tips on how to improve a commercial property, be sure to read part two and part three of this series as well.
