Leasing out your commercial building in Scottsdale, Arizona, is only the start of the process to prepare it for occupancy or use. In order to prepare the property to meet all the necessary building, fire, and other codes and the needs of the occupying tenant, your property many need to undergo tenant improvement. 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 lease is fulfilled to the 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 breath. From changing the interior finishes such as flooring and cabinets to complete remodels to make the space ADA compliant, tenant improvement involves a process of design, permit approvals, and construction that can take time and become costly. An architecture firm will help to take the burden off your shoulders by streamlining the process and keeping costs within budget. When you choose to work with our firm, we will help acquire permits, design a plan to meet the tenants’ needs, and ensure construction goes smoothly.
