Many workplaces have vacated their office space as they have moved home during the COVID-19 pandemic to stay safe and now may just be the optimal time to evaluate your place of business and determine if some tweaks here or there might improve your operations. Judging the necessity of a facelift for your business will take into account more than just the “curb appeal,” you also have to consider your operation costs, employee productivity, and bigger picture goals (e.g., expanding or relocating your business). Continue reading for reasons why your company could take off thanks to some summer renovations with commercial builders, and learn how to make it happen.
Invite Business with a Modern Look
You can only ever make one first impression and one thing to take into account is that your business’s aesthetic is the first impression you’ll get to make with many of your clients. Depending on how long your building has been standing, the flooring and ceiling may need a touch-up, or the exterior may need an update even if you have kept up with maintenance. Modernizing your business’s appearance will help give the impression to customers that you are always aiming to succeed and evolve with the changing times.
Optimize Employee Productivity
Your employees are the lifeblood of your business and they require a workspace that fosters productivity in order to operate as efficiently as possible so it is in your best interest to ensure that their working conditions are kept up to date. Things like heat and light levels have a subtle, yet powerful effect on the productivity of your team. Enlist the aid of building contractors to discuss the best ways of optimizing your office’s comfort so that your employees can begin to think of work as a second home, which will lead to greater productivity.
Cut Unnecessary Costs
Monitoring the efficiency of your business’s appliances and machinery is of the utmost importance. As time goes on, you may find that your energy and utility bills climb steadily with age and these costs may cover up to 50-60% of your monthly expenditures. The green market is advancing every single day and offers a plethora of energy-saving alternatives for your workspace that will cut excessive spending. Daytona Beach general contractors will be able to install things such as automatic bathroom faucets or double pane windows to optimize your energy efficiency.
If you do decide to take the leap and renovate your business, make sure to employ the services of commercial construction that you can trust. Establish your purpose for the renovation – updating your workspace, expanding to accommodate a growing workforce, etc. – and put together a plan with your construction management team using a reasonable budget. Before you begin your renovation, draft a timeline with the amount of time that each portion of work should take so that your project doesn’t run late (and possibly infringe on business). No matter what you have done, keep open communication between your staff and customers alike so that everyone’s expectations are on the same page. You can even use this time to stir up excitement with announcements of all the new things in store! Most importantly, make sure that your updated business will stay true to your company’s image – modernize your look but don’t compromise your roots.
