Tenants – Tenant Improvements
Most of our tenant’s businesses are constantly evolving. If you’re thinking about making any changes or improvements to your space, here are a few things to do:
- First, Pre-approval is necessary for most construction. Contact Cycelia at 564-2424 for approval and answers to any questions you might have as to the operation of the building.
- Second, to protect the safety, integrity and value of our buildings it is important that DCM review all plans, and that all contractors be licensed and insured. To get a list of the specific requirements for making improvements to your space (requirements vary by building) contact DCM’s tenant improvement department.
- And finally, there’s no one who knows your building better than our people. By including DCM’s tenant improvement department in the planning stages, we may be able to save you money or avoid problems later on. In addition, we have the ability to act as general contractor for many projects, saving our tenants considerable time and effort. Before you begin any kind of improvement to your space, it’s important that you keep us informed and involved. And the sooner you do that, the sooner you can get the benefit of our building and construction knowledge.
