What Costs Come with a Tenant Upfit?

Generally, when a tenant vacates a commercial space, the interior is converted back to a featureless shell by knocking out previous remodels. The new tenant may then personalize the interior and expand if needed. This tenant upfit usually includes putting in walls with a custom layout, flooring, ceilings, and more. An interior architect or designer may be involved in planning, along with the building engineer, tenant, and landlord.

Possible Tenant Upfit Costs

Each upfit project has its own costs associated with it. Even basic fees such as labor and regulations vary for each project. For example, a wood frame may be possible in some projects, keeping costs lower. However, in areas that require non-flammable construction, wood framing is not permitted, and costs will be higher. Some businesses may need customized entrances for deliveries or handicap access. Soundproofing or functional separation between other tenants may be an added requirement for some jobs. If an upfit includes expanding, adding HVAC, electricity, plumbing, and exterior customization, that also may increase cost.

Just as the needs of the tenant varies with each job, so will cost. However, Ben Stout Construction is dedicated to being upfront and transparent with their clients. After a thorough due diligence, we help our clients project a reasonable budget and work diligently to stay within budget.
