REFRESHING WITH CONSTRUCTION
In the case of build-outs of new commercial space, also known as tenant build-outs, Belden General Contractors counsels prospective clients to begin planning the build-out during the search for the new space. This will both focus the search and expedite the build-out process. Because the quality, extent and cost of a build-out are all part of negotiating with the landlord in the case of rented space, it’s important to consider a number of important issues.
- Establish how much the landlord will pay, particularly when the improvements increase the property value or bring the space up to code and negotiate favorable terms.
- Don’t over-build. Keep your build-out within your budget, keeping in mind that, when you move, you will leave your improvements behind.
- Don’t under-build, particularly when you are committing to a multi-year lease, to ensure that your build-out is appropriate for the time you will be there.
- Make sure that your leasehold improvements are acceptable to your landlord before you sign the lease and better yet, they should be enumerated in your lease.
- Discuss your plans with local building inspectors to ensure that they comply with codes and zoning restrictions. (Naturally, Belden General Contractors can do this for you.)
