How to Start Your Commercial Remodel Project

At Little Dixie Construction, we understand that the whole process of a commercial remodel can be intimidating and overwhelming. Luckily, we have some tips to help your business with the process. These are the top things to keep in mind before starting a remodeling project.

Define the Remodeling Budget 

It’s common for businesses to renovate before they set up shop. Some spaces may be a completely blank canvas and need everything designed and installed – including the plumbing and electricity. Other spaces may need small updates to make the space work for the business. Since construction projects can vary so much, it’s important to get a budget in place.

All these factors should be considered when budgeting for your project. Hiring a construction manager can help make the construction process as simple and straightforward as possible. A construction manager helps plan the budget for projects, guides clients through the process, and keeps goals and timelines on track. 

Focus on the Renovation Goals

Before you start the commercial remodel process, it’s important to consider the end goal. What does your business want to accomplish with the renovation? There are numerous reasons why a company may want a commercial remodel. Perhaps they have found the ideal location, but the space isn’t suitable for their business needs. It’s possible that the outside has been damaged and has to be redone. Or maybe the interior hasn’t been updated since the 1970s and it’s time to modernize the space. Maybe they are looking to start a franchise. They may require you to modify the space to meet the company’s requirements. Whatever your goal may be, it’s important to not get lost in the details – you can leave that up to your construction management team.

Prioritize Who You Hire for the Remodel

You need a team you can trust to handle those little details for you. It’s very important to take time when considering who your business chooses to take on your construction project. One way to make sure the right crew is working for your business is to check the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB is a reliable source that can provide valuable information about construction companies. This information includes how many years a company has been in business and if they have any customer complaints. It’s also important to talk to a representative from that company in person or over the phone.
