What Is Commercial Tenant Finishing for Businesses?
Commercial tenant finishing and remodeling projects cover a wide variety of improvements, including the alteration or reconfiguration of your commercial space. Commercial spaces can include offices, retail stores, warehouses, restaurants, tenant buildings, or even industrial or “flex” spaces.
Whether you are expanding, downsizing, rebranding, or just in need of modernization, commercial tenant finishing for businesses allows you to reinvent your space and meet the changing needs of your customers and business. Here is everything you need to know about commercial tenant finishing.
Interior improvements can be made by both the owner and tenant of a commercial space. Of course, tenants will require permission from the owners. Often, the owners will 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.
