Take the time to examine your current space in person as well as ask the building’s owner for architectural and engineering  drawings and documents to see exactly exactly you’re working with. Are there any building strengths you should capitalize on? Are there features worth saving? We can help to renovate your commercial property. Use the building drawings as a guide, but also have your design team do a walk through of the area to assess and double check accuracy. The more  a accurate the actual conditions you have, the fewer construction surprises and costs you’ll have during renovation. And don’t forget about the outside. Does your office renovation need indoor and outdoor updates? Are there any office or industrial property renovations  or building amenities valued today that weren’t put in place when the building was first built?

One company that did this right is Facebook with their gorgeous nine acre rooftop park above their Menlo Park, California headquarters. Today’s workforce likes being mobile, and this massive garden allows Facebook’s employees to leave their desk and collaborate elsewhere, like in a hammock or on one of the walking trails. There are even coffee stands and a cafe so employees can meet and work while getting refreshed with some caffeine under the sun. We have offices in Century City, to help with Space Planning and office renovations.

In terms of keeping communication open, have the office design team or HR personnel send out a copy of the proposed work time schedule to everyone, and regularly update any date changes that occur. You should then hold a meeting where plans can be discussed and shown to communicate the vision of the office renovation plan and eliminate any concerns. It’s also a good idea to let your employees get involved with the renovation before construction starts. Ask them what design ideas they have or would like to see implemented.
