Three Posts for a Better Office Build-Out

by CoyDavidson on August 14, 2012

The cost to build-out office space for a particular tenant’s needs is a key aspect of any lease transaction and if a dispute arises after the fact, it is often a design or construction issue. In addition, decisions around design, finishes and construction are one of the three key drivers of occupancy costs for office space users.

While companies typically focus on rental rates and concessions when making leasing and location decisions, it is critical to pay special attention to construction issues both during lease negotiations and during the process of making the space ready for occupancy. Here are three helpful posts from the archives of The Tenant Advisor.

  1. Negotiating the Tenant Improvement Allowance
  2. The Cost of an Office Build-Out

    This is a very useful set of articles. I work as a project manager in the office furniture business and spend a lot of time explaining to clients hoe this process works. It’s not something you do everyday and can be very confusing to many. These articles will help the client know the sequence of how things happen, timeframes etc.

    Thank you for posting—antbody in the office furniture biz should forward this to their clients that are building out.
