Frequent needs are for access improvements and for energy conservation measures to reduce running costs. Security and ease of maintenance are usually important too.
If you aim to renovate an old property ready for public use, several issues usually have to be resolved to ensure it will be safe and convenient in use. We will help steer you through the process. We can also assist community projects in preparing bids for grant funding.
A new use for an old building may need planning permission, as will most external changes such as signs or shop fronts. Alterations may also need approval from the landlord, as well as building regulations consent. Remember to commission a condition survey before starting a commercial lease to minimise disputes at the end of the term.
Premises running costs can be a big issue for small enterprises and community groups. We can assist with reducing energy costs and improving internal layouts, or with extending if you need space for the business to grow.
