Read on to find out how our 7-step commercial renovation process could transform your workplace.
Step1: Defining Your Commercial Renovation Goals
The most important step in a renovation is defining what you hope to achieve. What are your plans for your business, and how can a site upgrade support that?
Write down your ideas and communicate them with your commercial renovation contractor at your initial meeting. Understanding your goals will help us create a plan that will meet your expectations.
As part of the LIDA Construction Proven Process, we start by creating a detailed list of requirements and sketching out an initial layout or design. At this time, we can also discuss specific products or materials that are required or preferred for the renovation process.
Step 2: Creating & Maximizing Your Budget
Maximizing your budget is essential for a successful commercial renovation. At LIDA Construction, we employ strategies to help you get the most out of your investment:
- Prioritizing Needs: We identify key areas that will have the greatest impact on your business and allocate resources accordingly.
- Value Engineering: We explore cost-effective alternatives without compromising quality to optimize functionality and design.
- Detailed Budgeting: Transparent budgets and real-time cost tracking ensure proactive management of expenses.
- Trusted Partners: Our network of reliable suppliers and contractors offers competitive pricing, maintaining quality standards.
We manage all our commercial and residential projects through our project management software which allows us to track the progress of the project and effectively manage the budget, timeline and resources involved.
Our goal is to deliver exceptional commercial renovations that provide long-term value while optimizing your budget.
Step 3: Developing A Renovation Plan
Working together with our clients, our experienced team of architects and designers collaborate to develop a comprehensive plan that aligns with the client’s goals and requirements.
We prioritize creating functional layouts for commercial renovations. Our architects and designers collaborate closely with clients to optimize traffic flow, spatial utilization and accessibility.
By evaluating existing layouts and incorporating ergonomic designs, intuitive customer flow and compliance with regulations, we create efficient and user-friendly spaces that support business goals. For example:
- Optimal customer flow and product placement increase sales potential.
- Eye-catching displays and strategic product positioning enhance the shopping experience.
- An efficient layout improves workflow, collaboration and productivity.
- Ergonomic workstations and well-designed common areas foster employee well-being and engagement.
Trust us to deliver visually appealing, practical and growth-oriented commercial renovations.
Step 4: Select Furnishings, Fixtures and Equipment
During this step, LIDA collaborates with our clients to determine their specific needs for furnishings, fixtures, and equipment (FFE). This includes:
- Integrating the chosen FFE with the overall design scheme of the renovated space, considering factors such as style, budget, and sustainability.
- Evaluating suppliers, procuring high-quality items and planning the installation process.
- Ensuring compliance with building codes and safety regulations while prioritizing client satisfaction.
- Working closely with our clients to ensure the selected FFE enhances both the functionality and aesthetics of the commercial space.
Step 5: Upgrading Electrical and Plumbing Systems
At LIDA Construction, we prioritize upgrading electrical and plumbing systems during commercial renovations. We recognize that outdated or inefficient systems can impede productivity, compromise safety, and lead to increased energy consumption and utility costs.
Our experienced team collaborates closely with skilled electricians and plumbers to assess the existing infrastructure, identify areas for improvement, and develop effective upgrade plans tailored to the specific needs of your commercial space.
By implementing energy-efficient lighting, smart controls and advanced plumbing fixtures, energy consumption and water wastage is reduced. Our upgrades enhance functionality, safety and long-term cost savings for your commercial space.
Step 6: Installing Modern Lighting and Accents
Revitalizing your workspace doesn’t just mean making it look good but also ensuring the right amount of light and accents to create a comfortable environment.
Installing modern lighting and accents can bring an exciting new feel to any space while creating a more productive atmosphere. From sleek recessed lights that won’t take up too much ceiling space to wall sconces that give off both direct and indirect lighting – adding the perfect touch of ambiance – there are many options for you to choose from.
Step 7: Incorporating Technology into The Space
Incorporating technology into your workspace is an important part of any commercial renovation.
This can include the installation or updating of existing IT systems, audio-visual equipment and digital signage. Modernizing your space with these types of components can increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace.
- Implementing a cohesive tech system helps to streamline processes between departments while also providing enhanced security protocols such as strong passwords and two-factor authentication.
- Up-to-date hardware and software solutions ensure that all shared data remains safe from cyber threats. Investing in reliable technology not only benefits the workplace but gives customers peace of mind knowing their information is secure.
