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.

Commercial Architecture Design

Commercial architecture design is a combination of different disciplines in conjunction with the needs of the business.

Commercial Architects and Design Phases

Architecture, since it started thousands of years ago, has changed with the times. Good architecture, whether commercial or not combines both form and function, however, commercial architecture has to meet the needs of the business world.    Some commercial projects are simple.  One location on one small city corner.  Other projects are enormous in their scope, covering many acres or city blocks.  Architectural projects have to go through several clear design phases

First off, the initial meeting between the architect and the client is arranged.  This helps to define the scope of the project and give a general estimate as to how long it is going to take.  The architect will then submit some initial designs with the client. While the client’s wishes are paramount, the architect has to balance their ideas with a combination of other factors such as structural integrity, building codes for the city or municipal area, as well as any local ordinances.

Why an Architect Has to Juggle All This

First off, some cities don’t permit buildings over a certain size to be built.  Without approval, the city is well within its rights to halt construction, impose fines, and other things that can interfere with the project or even kill it before it gets too far.
Some neighborhoods restrict the types of signage that is allowed which makes sense if you think about it.  There was a prominent church on the freeway for example that had an extremely bright LED sign that was causing more than a few wrecks.  They put it up without doing a feasibility study.  In the Willo Historical District a business bought one of the homes and was going to turn it into an office.  They didn’t know that they couldn’t make structural changes without the approval of the district.

So as you hopefully see, there is more to building a building than drawing up some plans and breaking ground.  Before the building is even started, the plans are reviewed, modeled, and researched.  So remember, if you have a business, there is one professional that you have to have in your address book along with your lawyer and insurance company:  your commercial architect.
