It’s important to keep your business office updated. You’ll have a great environment for your employees to work while being able to modernize the space as your company evolves with the times. Still, a proper remodel of your office will require time and money. So what can you do to help prevent any major headaches during the process?
Here are a few key tips that we’ve compiled:
1. Don’t Go Off Budget
In any remodeling project, it’s really easy to get off your budget. Construction costs add up quickly and unexpected problems can arise. You need to thoroughly outline your budget and all costs before starting the project. Then, you want to make sure you are sticking to it as closely as possible during the renovation.
2. Don’t Lose Sight of Your Goals
Oftentimes, multiple people are involved in the decisions and not everybody is on the same page. It’s important to make sure that everyone involved is moving in the same direction and everyone understands the primary goals. Have meetings with your principals throughout the process so each person is updated and knows what to expect with the next stages.
3. Never Procrastinate
Usually, the worst things will happen when people wait until the last minute to make key decisions. Details need to be worked out in advance so that everyone can be following the same plan.
4. Get the Right Contractor Agreement
If possible, get a fixed cost agreement with your contractor to avoid unexpected costs. If they only give you a vague “time and materials” estimate, odds are the project will exceed that projected cost and you could be left in a bad spot with your overall budget.
5. Logistics, Logistics, Logistics!
Working out the details of your office remodel is just one half of the equation. You need to figure out how you are still going to be doing business while the renovation is happening. Where will your employees work? Will they have all the resources and technology they need to do their jobs? What about your office kitchen and restroom facilities? Work out these details before beginning the remodel so there are fewer issues and workflow remains effective.
