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 Architects and The Process

After preparation of environmental analysis and feasibility studies, a commercial architect prepares and presents those findings to the client as proof. An architect also has powers to choose contractors that will perform the construction of particular structures, and he/ she might help a client negotiate contracts.

Architects all over the world are the same, but what differs is only the level of education. Such a person is highly trained through college, having undertaken a degree course in architecture. They are the brains behind any building. In Canada it’s described as, “the art, the science and the business of building.”  An architect has to be a rare combination of an engineer, an artist, an administrator, and a facilitator.  An architect has to know more than blueprints.  There is also the issues of getting permits and licenses to make any project a reality.  They are often responsible for hiring building companies, electrical contractors, plumbers, and other related services without which, the building will be nothing more than just a set of drawings rolled up in a tube somewhere.

What Do Commercial Architects Build?

What do commercial architects build?  Architects design buildings, but surprisingly, they don’t build anything themselves.  Commercial architects make designs and specifications of permanent buildings, such as offices and factories; shopping malls and retail outlets; air and rail terminals; and hotel, sports and leisure facilities.

Nearly 113,700 jobs in the year 2010 were held by architects and employment opportunities will grow by 24 percent from 2010 to 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. If you want to qualify for this profession, you should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in architecture from a university or college program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. Even though there are a few differences between states, most of them have some sort of reciprocity where the skills of a commercial architect are concerned.  A college degree is required as is a bit of on the job training with an experienced architect.  Finally, you need to have some area of specialty, such as residential architecture, or commercial architecture.

From a business perspective, there are certain key personnel that you will need.  You’ll need an executive team.  You’ll need a place of business, and finally, you’ll need a commercial architect to help design the building you’ll be in.
