What is a Tenant Build-Out and Do You Need One?

Chances are, when you’re looking to move your business into a strip mall, mall or even a business park, you’ll need to look at renovating the space to fit your business wants and needs. This process of finishing a space is called a tenant build-out and it’s one of the fastest ways to get your business up and running.

When looking at a space, it’s important to negotiate with the landlord an improvement allowance to help renovate the space for your needs. Typically the amount of the allowance will depend on the length of the lease and the rental rate.

As an owner of a strip mall or business park, working with a tenant on a build-out, you’ll want to know what improvements will be made, who is in charge of overseeing the work that is being done and let the tenant know how you’d like the space to be left once the tenant’s lease is up. Does the space need to be returned to its original specifications? Or, do only specific improvements need to be removed?

Regardless if you’re a business owner or a building owner, choosing the right contractor is essential. Your tenant build-out will only be as good as the contractor you select for your project. They’re responsible for ensuring all the items on the list are completed on time and are accurate and that the construction quality is on point. The contractor is also responsible for making sure the project is delivered on time and within your budget.
