Tenant improvement, according to Business Dictionary, is defined as, “Changes made to the interior of a commercial or industrial property by its owner to accommodate the needs of a tenant such as floor and wall coverings, ceilings, partitions, air conditioning, fire protection, and security.”
Making these changes is the key to ensuring that the agreed-upon lease is fulfilled to its fullest extent. This is where an architecture firm such as DesignLink Architecture & Planning comes into the picture.
Tenant improvement projects can range in scope and breadth. From changing interior finishes, such as flooring and cabinets, to complete top-to-bottom remodels, to making the space ADA compliant, tenant improvements can be quite involved. They include all aspects of the design process, permit approvals, inspections, and construction, that all take time and can become costly if not done properly. An architect will help to take this burden off of your shoulders by streamlining the process and monitoring the budget to stay within its parameters. What we do:
In addition to all these wonderful benefits, one big reason to use a firm like ours is that you can get a bigger return on investment.
