Buying a commercial property is very different from purchasing a similar structure for residential purposes. For one thing, the investment needed to get a retail establishment up and running is much greater than the costs of moving into a new home. To ensure top quality upgrades, work with a company that specializes in commercial remodels.
1. Where to Start
Where should you start? The first step is to figure out exactly what changes need to be made. Can you stick with the existing walls and framework? Are the electrical and plumbing systems in good shape? Discuss the integrity of existing structures with your preferred general contractor, SiliconX Construction, as you work to determine what to change and what to leave.
2. Develop a Timeline
This is particularly important if you hope to remain operational as much as possible during the remodel. If you have shared a timeline with your general contractor, then those clear expectations should keep everyone involved on track.
3. Set Up the Ideal Layout
Where you set up displays, hang lights, place fixtures, and position employee and customer space can have a huge impact on the experience of both employees and customers. Work out a few different scenarios until you can create an effective foot-traffic flow.
4. Measure Your Success
After any business venture, you would check the success of your investment. It shouldn’t be any different following a remodel. Track your success before and after your remodel! You are sure to see an impact. Contact us to take the next step!
