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.

Tenant Improvement in Phoenix


For the Business Owner with Growing Pains

Are you a small business owner who loves working from your home, but has recently found your kitchen table too small for meetings?  Maybe your current leased offices are just getting too small for your new hires and new equipment, but you’re just not sure it’s the right time to relocate?  It might make sense to consider a tenant improvement on an existing or new office space.

With the recent market challenges many businesses are relocating their office for several reasons:

–  Reduce overhead costs with a lower lease payment. With office rents plunging, there’s never been a better time to be a tenant. Many tenants are finding that nearly everything is on the table — from rental rates to lease terms to the size of the security deposit.  And you don’t necessarily have to go through the expense and headache of relocating to get a deal.  To strengthen your hand at the lease negotiation table, let your landlord see that you’re shopping around.  And even if there are several years left on your lease, it can’t hurt to ask for an early renewal in this market.
–  Enhance worker creativity and communication with a larger space that has more natural light.  And redesigning the “flow” of the office might create a more flexible work environment that may mean removing or reconfiguring the layout of some office walls.
–  Find a new location.  Some businesses will benefit from better customer visibility, and others who don’t rely on foot traffic, will benefit from a more convenient, low-cost, utilitarian location.


Phoenix Tenant Improvement Ideas for a Growing Business

Successful business is about change.  If you are business owner who’s having growing pains, you’re not alone.  Here are a few tenant improvement ideas that might make sense:

1. Reinvent your present office by hiring a registered Architect to help you make the best use of your space. With just a little creative thought your office layout could be more efficient.
2. If your current office is running out of space, move to a building with a bigger office. Starting fresh in a new building will allow the design of your new office to anticipate every need and want.
3. Just when you think you’ve got the space you want, your business will change again. Progress is cyclical.  Finding an office with some flexible space could make sense for the future.
4. Convert an unused room in your home into a storage facility, warehouse or a second office for employees.
5. Utilize business centers. These temporary offices provide a traditional office space for you to work in, and usually come with amenities like internet access, videoconferencing, conference space, office equipment like copiers, and even receptionists.
