Tenant and capital improvements can vary greatly and are based on the marketing needs of the owner and the business needs of the tenants. Capital expenditures are made by building owners to update the look and function of a building prior to occupancy. Tenant improvements, on the other hand, vary as much as there are different businesses and usually include office space build outs, conference rooms, specialized function rooms, power upgrades and more. Usually, tenant improvements are subject to the structure of the lease. In the current climate most industrial buildings are leased as-is with little or no improvements underwritten by the building owners.
However, business owners, leasing properties, are looking for ways to reduce overhead costs and rely on their Tenant Improvement contractor to be on board and address their concerns with money saving ideas. According to CBRE and Facilities magazine, Stephanie Marthakis, “Although today’s industrial user is not focused on new industry standards such as LEED Certification, they are interested in space and energy efficiencies. Office build outs are planned more efficiently, and tenants are demanding better use of energy. This has resulted in new types of TIs that include energyefficient T5 lighting and roof irrigation systems” to name some of the cost saving options.
Another important way that Business owners can save on overhead costs while improving the functionality of their buildings is to work with a contractor that has the experience, team and process for project success.
