10 Signs It’s Time to Upfit Your Commercial Office Space

October 31, 2017

There are plenty of reasons to upfit commercial office space to make it into a space that works for you, your employees, and your business. Whether you’re expanding your business and need an office that you can grow into, or your space just needs a fresh, updated look, Hayco Construction can offer the skills and expertise you need to get your commercial office space to work for you.

Here are 10 signs it’s time to upfit your commercial office space:

1.You need to impress your clients.

Like it or not, your office space says a lot about you and your business. An outdated, shabby office tells your clients or customers that business isn’t so good.

2. You’ve run out of space.

Are employees sharing desks or cramming into conference rooms? Is your storage closet overflowing? Are you scheduling off-site meetings with clients because there’s nowhere to meet with them in the office? It’s time to see if there’s a better way to utilize the space in your commercial office.

3. The buzzing fluorescent lights highlight the dingy wall paint.

Outdated office space? Give it a facelift with simple renovations such as a fresh coat of paint, new lighting fixtures, and other quick improvements.

4. Your company is planning a hiring spree.

Your business is expanding–that’s great! Don’t let your company outgrow your space. Talk with a commercial construction company about upfitting your current space, before it gets too crowded!

5. You need to meet building codes.

Did you purchase an older office building for your company, only to find out the building isn’t up to commercial building standards? Avoid fines and other penalties by renovating as soon as possible.

6. Your employees are freezing.

If your employees leave a supply of blankets and sweaters at their desks and cling to coffee mugs for reasons other than the caffeine content, it might be time to renovate your office space and make your HVAC system more efficient.

7. You’re adding new equipment to your office space.

Those large-format printers and extra water coolers have to go somewhere. Upfit your space to make sure that “somewhere” isn’t right next to someone’s desk!

8. You want to motivate your employees.

Are your employees being held back by an outdated office space? An updated, modern office that’s comfortable and functional will motivate your employees and increase their productivity.

9. Noise is a common complaint in your office.

If your employees are frequently bringing up the noise factor, that’s a good sign it might be time to consider some renovations. Add sound-proofing measures or section off certain areas to make them more private so your employees can work distraction-free.

10. Employees have been asking for the ability to collaborate more.

Cubicles are a thing of the past for most commercial offices, and with good reason. An open office space allows for better communication and collaboration between your employees.
