As your business continues to grow, the area you once thought would never be filled becomes increasingly cramped with employees and customers. While you could move to a bigger location somewhere else, it may result in the loss of valued customers and stall the continued growth of your company. A safer option would be to build out your space, giving your company enough room to grow throughout the years. Along with increasing space, there are other benefits to expanding the size of your building.
Savings: Some are leery to build out their store or office as they feel that they will not be able to get a good return on their investment. However, there are a variety of ways that new construction can ultimately make your money back. Many of the materials we use at National Maintenance and Build Out Company come in energy efficient options, such as the doors and windows. The newer materials will provide better insulation and help cut back on heating and cooling bills. It also eliminates the need to move all of your equipment and products to a new location, which would involve hiring a moving service and potentially requiring you to close to set up the area.
Productivity: The additional space will allow you to optimize the layout of your store or office to increase productivity and traffic flow. For retail shops, it can create an easier flow through the aisles, increasing your turnover rate by allowing them to do more shopping in less time. If you are expanding an office, these changes can lead a noticeable boost in your employees’ productivity. By opening up the space, your employees will be able to better communicate with each other, cutting back on time that is wasted walking through a maze of desks.
Branding: Increasing the exterior’s surface area provides you with more space to advertise your company and attract new customers. Whether you place a large company logo or display windows, you can create a space that catches the eye and inspires those passing by to visit your business. It also provides you with more room in the store to further promote the brand with the addition of company colors and logo on the new wall space.
By increasing the size of your current location, you will also save yourself the hassle of finding a new building that suits your needs. If you are afraid that building out your store or office may be too expensive, we offer Value-Engineered Options that are designed to save you 10-15% on the job.
