Whether you are experienced in the process or entirely new for commercial renovations, you should start each project by asking your contractor a few questions. It’s crucial to understand the process while educating yourself and your team before the renovation begins. Continue reading for a few essential questions you should be asking your contractor about the commercial renovation process.
How Long Will It Take?
Of course, the most important question to ask with any renovation project is how long it will take to complete. A good contractor will sit down with you and your team to work out a schedule to the best of their ability, including estimated arrival times for certain materials and how long each stage of the renovation will take to complete. However, a good contractor also knows that quality work should not be rushed, and will budget plenty of time for each stage to ensure everything is done correctly.
How Much Will The Renovation Cost?
The next essential question to ask is about the overall cost, as it is very important to stay within your budget. Contractors know that it’s difficult to provide an exact price for a commercial renovation, as costs can fluctuate and various hurdles can occur during the project. Many contractors recommend that clients use a predetermined fixed cost, and will do everything they can to stay within budget and reduce costs wherever possible.
Can We Work During The Renovation?
Since a commercial renovation can take some time, it’s important to figure out where you will be working for the duration of the construction. This will vary depending on the type of renovation, as small jobs in specific areas of the building may not affect your work day, but whole building renovations with crews of workers make it difficult to work. Construction also tends to be very noisy and distracting, so it’s often a good idea to find another place to work during the renovation process. Look for collaborative workspaces or mobile offices to ensure the renovation doesn’t impact your business.
