When you are the owner of commercial office spaces that you lease out to tenants that own business operations, it is sometimes necessary to work with a commercial tenant improvement service to make changes to the units you rent. Take a look at some of the examples that tenants may often request to be changed in a commercial unit they are leasing from a property owner.
Windows may need to be reduced or eliminated.
Windows are nice in just about any commercial space, but some companies can have concerns if there are too many windows. For example, one of your commercial tenants may have issues with too many windows if:
- All the natural light is interfering with the visibility of electronic screens in the unit
- There are concerns about passersby being able to see the work that is taking place inside the unit through the windows
- Windows are allowing in a lot of heat that is bad for the electronic equipment in the unit
If a tenant requests some of the configurations be changed where the windows are concerned, it is important to take note. Making these changes will not only help the tenant be a tenant for longer, but it could also be a valuable change for future business tenants as well.
New rooms may have to be added to a wide-open space.
It is not uncommon for office spaces that owners lease to be basically one large open space that can be outfitted with cubicles and other setups to divide out workspaces among employees. However, if there are no separate private rooms, it can make certain things hard to achieve. For instance, managers may need private office spaces so they can conduct certain aspects of the business confidentially. It is not at all uncommon for a commercial tenant to request private rooms to be implemented in a wide-open office space.
Bathrooms may have to be upgraded.
Business owners are expected to provide proper facilities for their employees. If you own a set of office spaces that you lease to business owners and each only has a regular bathroom with only one toilet, it can sometimes be necessary for upgrades to be made. For example, if one company employs a few hundred people, it would not be logical for only one bathroom to be available. Therefore, changes to bathrooms are a fairly common request for commercial leasing space owners.
