Your commercial property is more than just a location in which to sell your wares or carry out your business, it can be a great representation of your brand. If you are already the owner of a commercial property, or you are currently looking to purchase one, you may have considered what you can do to make the space more your own and reflect your branding. Commercial property renovations are often lengthy projects, and as such, it is all too easy to become overwhelmed by the prospect of the different tasks involved. To help you out, here are some must-do renovations for your commercial property.
Take advantage of the remodeling period to give the landscape around the building a makeover. Talk with a landscape architect for help selecting the best trees and plants to compliment the building’s architecture. Together, work creatively to add appealing feature areas like places to sit, a commercial flag pole, a water feature, or outdoor art.
Whether you own a warehouse, manufacturing facility, or office building, flooring is an important element of the overall safety of your property, not to mention appearance. Stained and frayed carpets look scruffy and could leave customers with a negative impression of your business, and ripped and uneven linoleum increases the risk of trips and falls in an already hazardous industrial environment. Look for hard-wearing low pile carpet for your office and durable laminate flooring for warehouses and industrial spaces that is non-slip and easy to clean.
Windows are instrumental in maximizing the natural light in your commercial property, as well as providing insulation from outside noise and cold outside temperatures and drafts, helping to keep heating bills down. However, the sheer amount of glasswork that is often incorporated in commercial buildings means that it is all too easy for some windows to become damaged. A commercial glass replacement firm, such as Glazing Renovations, will provide you with a cost-effective solution to replacing and refurbishing either single panes or entire window systems in your commercial property.
Air conditioning and filtration systems
Commercial properties are often built on a large scale, and could even incorporate vastly different departments on one site, from offices to warehouses, to the factory floors. It is important that an effective air conditioning system is incorporated throughout your property to ensure maximum airflow and regulate temperatures, ensuring a comfortable working environment for your staff. Furthermore, many air conditioning systems also provide air filtration, which helps to remove harmful pathogens from the air. This is massively important for providing peace of mind and protecting the health of your employees as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
As a business owner, you might have specific requirements for your commercial property. For instance, you might want to convert office space into a shop front or create an open plan office from multiple smaller rooms. If this is the case, then consult an architect for your structural redesigns. An architect will work with you to ensure that your redesigned commercial property space fulfills all of your needs for your business while being carried out in a safe, structurally sound process to ensure that your premises do not experience any major structural faults or health and safety hazards in the future. If these were to occur, the remedy could be very costly.
