When you own a commercial building, the last thing you want to think of is investing a bunch of money into renovation services. It is important to note, however, that sometimes these investments are necessary in order to lower other additional costs down the road (such as maintenance and operation).
When you invest in an office renovation, it also increases the value of the building if you ever decide to sell. At the end of the day, most of the time a renovations pros will outweigh its cons.
Regardless of all the benefits, however, you should never jump into a commercial renovation without looking for the signs that your building needs one. We here at iRemodel Commercial Construction have come up with some signs to look out for when figuring out if your space is in need of a renovation.
High Electric Bills
Do you dread opening up your electric bill every month? Do the costs seem to be getting higher and higher? Luckily, a construction professional can help come up with a number of solutions to solve an electricity problem, from natural light renovations (building large windows, glass walls and skylights) to economic lighting fixtures.
Out Of Style
Spaces that are decked with the latest and greatest features/colours usually bode well when it comes to office comfort and liveliness. If you are still of the belief that walls covered in white with a bunch of desks placed in the middle of the room is enough, you will need to open up to other options. Not only will these upgrades make people feel more comfortable, but they will also encourage productivity and motivate employees rather than drain them of their energy.
Abnormally High Maintenance Costs
Costs for heating and water can skyrocket as the months go by, so it might be a good idea to check when the systems were installed. If you find out that they are over a decade old, installing new systems can drop their maintenance costs by about fifty percent. If you take it a step further, and replace your old systems with energy efficient ones, you can bring down your costs even more.
Bad Organization of Space
Taking advantage of your building’s space can be difficult, but help from a professional contractor can benefit you greatly. There are a number of ways to come up with space solutions that you may not have thought of before hiring a contractor, so be sure to get a second opinion and see what you can do with your space!
Dangerous Building Conditions
This one is of most importance, as it can lead to a safety hazard for the people working there. If your building has broken pipes, damaged wires or a leaky roof, these are signs you should start a Toronto office renovation as soon as possible.
