2017 is now off and running. The ball was dropped weeks ago, the champaign and songs are a thing of the past. It’s time to get to work on the new year.
With every January comes the traditional New Year’s resolutions. With every February comes the time-honored custom of forgetting all about them.
Whether it’s weight loss, professional growth, or financial stability, it seems that New Year’s resolutions are all too easy to ignore. This includes resolutions for your commercial business.
This year, drop the flimsy model of resolutions (if you haven’t already) and stick to real changes. One of the top changes you can make is to remodel your commercial space, so let’s take a look at the reasons why remodeling needs to be on your 2017 to-do list...
Top Reasons for Remodeling Your Commercial Space in 2017:
1. Enhance Productivity
Every business knows that a well-organized office can, in theory, improve productivity and operations, but there are actually statistics to back up this assumption. A study from the American Society of Interior Designers, for example, conducted a survey of 200 leaders at small, mid-sized, and large companies, asking questions about productivity and office space. They found that 90% of respondents believe that improvements can increase productivity.
The study also found that 68% of respondents believe office space should be reviewed every at least every five years, while 36% said it should be reviewed at least annually.
2. Update the Office Technology
When you remodel office space, you are presented with an excellent opportunity to upgrade the technology. While remodeling the flooring and desk layout, use it as a chance to upgrade the computers, either by the purchase of new equipment or upgrading software in current technology.
You should also consider adding new printers, wi-fi, televisions, or other technology that needs an update, assuming you have room in the budget.
3. Give Customers a Better Impression
Even if your technology is completely up-to-date, the style and design of your office may be setting you back. A modern office, after all, gives the impression that your business is on the leading edge of technology, while green shag carpet and orange countertops give the impression of a retro, behind-the-times company. When a customer or client enters your modern remodeled commercial space, they are left with a much better first impression.
4. Make the Office More Energy Efficient
There are many statistics and theories behind the amount of money you can save by implementing energy-efficient steps in your commercial remodeling. Efficiency Vermont , for example, claims that a high-performance approach could save as much as 20% on the building’s future energy costs.
No matter what the specific numbers, remodeling can make your business more environmentally-friendly, especially if you are working out of an older building. If you decide to remodel, make sure your plans include modern energy-efficient technology.
