Last month, we shared 4 signs that your facility may require a renovation or remodel. However, not all commercial renovation projects need to be brought on by desperation – there are several reasons you may want to consider renovating just to improve your facility. Jerry L. Johnson & Associates has the necessary experience and expertise to bring your project to life.
Improve Energy Efficiency
One of the biggest issues with older buildings is how poor their energy efficiency is compared to modern buildings. While a renovation may be an expensive investment, it will be worth it in the long run by slashing operating costs and improving the facility’s energy consumption. By updating your HVAC system, lighting, doors, windows, and other features, you may be shocked at the difference you’ll see.
Modern workspaces are on efficiency and streamlining business. An updated office design can improve organization, workflow, and more. This can be especially beneficial for companies using buildings and offices that weren’t specifically designed for them. Additionally, experienced contractors like JLJ can work around your team so you don’t have to shut down operations.
Modernize Safety & Accessibility Features
Modern workplaces are focused on safety and accessibility, and a renovation is a great opportunity to ensure that an outdated facility receives the updates it needs to comply with various safety regulations. It’s not uncommon for older buildings to have outdated or faulty features that can be dangerous for employees and customers alike. Improving handicap accessibility can also be incredibly beneficial for your business.
Renovating a longtime business facility is a big, often expensive decision. But there are many reasons that it’s worth considering. Modernize your building with these ideas in mind and you’re sure to see some incredible benefits. Additionally, the simple act of renovation sends a message to your employees and customers that you want to improve and aren’t complacent.
