As the saying goes, all old things are new again, and there has been an increase of companies loving the idea of building in old warehouses or buildings that have been vacant for many years in Rochester, MN. While there is certainly something nostalgic about revitalizing a building that has sat dormant for many years, not every building has the right infrastructure to match your company needs. Take for example the large warehouse space that seems perfect for an upscale restaurant. However, this space may not have been in use for many years and has very outdated HVAC work. The heating and cooling systems needed may be extensive to install and expensive to maintain. Fitting the space for a commercial kitchen is another added cost that can add up quickly. Bringing the building to code for the ADA Act could be another unexpected but necessary expense. Part of our job as a design/build commercial construction firm is to work with you from the start of your project to the finish and to make you aware of the associated costs that you might be looking at. Helping you find the right fit is part of the process!
Choosing an existing building and repurposing it is a popular choice for small businesses as they believe it will cut down on the expenses from building outright. While this may be true, it is important to consider that the building may need significant changes to the outside and inside to make it fit your brand. Imagine if you were looking at moving your operations inside a building that was formerly a Target store. Leaving the façade as it is would certainly mean that people would continue to refer to your business being in “the old Target location” for years to come.
The right construction partner for your business matters. While we can transform almost any space into what you are looking for, helping you choose the right space is just as important. For more information about our commercial construction services in Rochester, MN, contact us at (507) 288-9397.
