Commercial tenant finishing and remodeling projects often involve the alteration or reconfiguration of commercial spaces.  These projects can span a wide variety of improvements from cosmetic changes to major construction. Commercial spaces include office buildings, retail stores, warehouses, restaurants, industrial and “flex” facilities.

Tenant finishing services allow your company to expand, downsize, rebrand, modernize, or reinvent your space to meet the changing needs of your customers and business.

Types of Improvements

Interior improvements can be made by both the owner and tenant of a commercial space with permission from the building owner. Owners will often provide funding towards the interior improvements as it will increase the value of their property. Changes can include customized or standardized alterations. It can include major changes, such as demolition to knock out walls, electrical upgrades, and plumbing, or cosmetic changes like new paint, flooring, lighting fixtures, and built-ins.

Landlord improvements are also often referred to as white-box improvements. These improvements are standardized alterations made before a lease agreement. This would include configuring the space for quick turnover to a tenant before that tenant makes their own improvements.

These modifications meet the specific needs of the tenant. They become highly customized improvements with specific office designations, lobby requirements, specialty flooring needs, specific safety requirements for some industrial spaces, built-in fixtures, or bars for stores and restaurants.
