At Key Interiors, we’ve grown since our inception in 1978 to become one of the nation’s most respected interior solutions providers. And along the way, one of the most important issues we’ve helped our clients address is when to schedule their next office renovation.
The first thing we can state is that there is no standard, single answer to this issue. It may be advisable or optimal for you to schedule your next office relocation in three months. Then again, it may be wiser to wait longer.
With this being said, scheduling your next office renovation cannot be random or arbitrary. On the contrary, it must be carefully and meticulously planned, and that is precisely why there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer: because only after researching your options identifying all relevant factors, will you be able to determine the optimal time to schedule your next office renovation.
With this in mind, here are some of the factors that you and your selected interior solutions provider will need to identify:
- Planning and design
- Budget frameworks and limits
- Material lead times
- Building permit requirements
- Engineering issues
- Lease stipulations
- Building code standards
- Weather considerations
- Potential tenant disruptions
And then of course, there are potential staff or customer service disruptions that must be taken into consideration. For example, if customer traffic in your office spikes in the spring, then all else being equal, it would be better to schedule your office renovation for the summer or fall. Or, if you need to temporarily house your staff while renovations are being completed, then depending on where you’re located, it may be easier or less costly to find temporary space during the summer than the fall.
Ultimately, scheduling your next office renovation must be based on a realistic and robust schedule; one that is supported by contingency plans and ready-to-implement workarounds if issues arise (e.g. severe weather).
