Expert Design and Construction to Fit Your Tenants’ Needs

Construction Experts Serving Bay Area Commercial Building Owners

Every commercial building owner knows that it’s easier to rent out office space – and keep your tenants longer – if it fits the tenant’s needs. Unfortunately, no layout will universally work for every type of business; however, these spaces are often flexible in terms of their ability to be transformed into exactly what each tenant needs to comfortably and efficiently run their company in your space.
Promodeling Inc. serves building owners and commercial renters in the San Francisco Bay Area, providing tailored fit-outs to give lessees the level of customization they need to best serve their business objectives. Whether your tenants require an open-concept office space, a shopper-friendly retail storefront, or something more utilitarian, Promodeling can design and build exactly what is needed to best serve the business.

What Are Tenant Improvements?

Tenant improvements are modifications made to the interior of a commercial space to best meet the needs of the business that will reside in the space. These modifications do not affect the overall structure of the building and are limited to semi-permanent interior finishes such as:

Other Names For Tenant Improvements

The specific name used can depend on your industry, location and the language used in the rental contract and/or construction agreement.

Tenant improvements are known by several names, including the following:

Tenant improvements do NOT include things like furniture, decor, etc. The costs for these improvements are sometimes covered or subsidized by the building owner, though some owners will add the cost to the monthly rent amount.

New Construction Tenant Imporvements

In spaces that have not yet been leased before, incoming lessees will often be presented with office space in shell condition (the interior is mostly unfinished). This presents a blank canvas for the new tenant to customize to suit their needs. Cost-wise, this is ideal, since there will be no demolition or removal needed.

Grey Shell Spaces

Grey shell spaces (also known as cold shell spaces’) are presented in a completely unfinished state. You’ll see bare stud walls, no electrical or plumbing and unfinished floors. There may be an HVAC unit but no ductwork, and the sprinkler system may be installed but not dropped to finished ceiling height. It’s a true blank slate.

Vanilla Shell Spaces

Vanilla shell spaces (sometimes called ‘white boxes’), are close to finished. Tenants will typically arrive to find basic floors and ceilings, drywall, electrical and plumbing, and basic fixtures. Vanilla shell spaces can be less costly to outfit than grey shell spaces, since the basics are already done and the improvements are typically more for aesthetics than function.

Tenant Improvements In Existing Spaces

Many building owners offer an allowance to pay for tenant improvements of an existing space, but it’s crucial to remember that if demolition and removal are involved, that allowance can be absorbed quickly. In most cases, it is a good idea for tenants to look for a rental space that fits most of their requirements so existing finishes and materials can be reused or repurposed to reduce the cost of renovation.

Client Testimonial

We met with Guy who walked us through the entire process of our kitchen remodel. He took our 1950s kitchen and turned it into this amazing place that I invite people over just to see. His entire staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend Promodeling Inc for any remodeling needs.
