Deciding to renovate a retail store is a big move. Renovating commercial retail space can open new opportunities for a brand. It is important to have a well-thought-out plan, budget, and to hire expert commercial contractors, like CBI to complete the job. These tips will ensure a successful retail renovation.



Most often when it comes to a renovation in a commercial retail space, the business takes a temporary hiatus. It is important to figure out the renovation schedule that works for your business so that you can present realistic expectations to your employees, customers, and your contractor. 



Your employees cover the retail space continuously throughout the day while interacting with customers or completing tasks. It is helpful to ask for suggestions about storage, point of sale, or different display options. As employees are interacting with the customers in an ongoing capacity, integrating their suggestions and the overall goals will mean optimum success.



It is important to plan on working with and around what you already have in place when it comes to electricity, plumbing, and ductwork as they also most often do not need to be replaced. If you think you need to move electrical or plumbing, decide and plan ahead of time so that you can allocate your budget or find other solutions without the cost of relocating infrastructure.



In order to have success with a renovation, there needs to be a good balance of needs and wants. Before committing to anything, weigh all options, shop around and compare all alternatives. At the end of the day, it is about quality and your bottom line — and making a profit once your renovations are complete.

For any congregation, building or renovating a church is a major undertaking. No matter the religion, each congregation has its own unique needs.  Another important consideration after 2020 is social distancing due to COVID-19. With any commercial building, it is important to hire a construction contractor who is experienced, comes with good recommendations or reviews, and is able to organize and direct the project to your set budget.


To set the budget, you must understand the needs of your build or renovation for your congregation. What are the parameters of the new building? You need to understand the demographics of your congregations. For example, are there a lot of families and young children? You may need to plan for childcare and a place for learning. Establishing the budget and the needs of your congregation is imperative to ensure that your new building will be everything you want.


Once you establish the needs of your church renovation or new build, the next step is to find and hire an experienced church builder for a consultation. You want a construction contractor that has experience with church designs and understands the best materials for church builds. An experienced church commercial building contractor has worked on a number of church construction projects and is able to estimate both the costs of your facilities and any potential problems that may arise.


At CBI, we understand the important role that budget, schedule, and design play in the church industry. We use decades worth of successful construction experience to provide clients with accurate estimates and timelines, and partner with them at every step along the way to ensure all their goals are met.
