Short Term Offices a Great Solution During Commercial Property Restorations and Renovations
The 2017 hurricane season just began on June 1 and depending on which report you read, this year could prove to be a below-average year — or one that brings some high-intensity storms to Florida. Per an article in Florida Trend magazine, “The Weather Company, an IBM Business, now expects a total of 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes for the 2017 season.”
Fortunately, in the greater Tampa Bay area we don’t generally need to worry about hurricanes, but business owners will occasionally feel the impact of storms that can cause wind damage and flooding. Storms and lightning strikes can also increase the potential for mold and mildew issues or even fire and smoke damage.
Depending on the extent of a property’s damage, business owners may seek out temporary office space.
There are many instances where offices, buildings or warehouse facilities need to undergo restoration and renovation after storm damage. And cleaning up work and rebuilding can take time.
As a business owner, you know that downtime related to issue like that can affect sales. It’s one of the many reasons why temporary office space can be a great solution — whether it’s for your entire company or just a few employees.
Mike Jemison, COO at Solution Source, a general contracting and restoration company in Plant City says that, “depending on the nature of the damage, you can expect to be out of your office space for a few weeks up to a few months. It really just depends on the level of work needed to restore the exterior and interior of your building.”
Smart business owners also seek out short term offices for a variety of other reasons. Short term offices may be used when the company is:
Building out office space within commercial spaces
Building brand new offices
Undergoing renovations and upgrades to existing office space
Hiring seasonal staff
Hiring sales or support staff in markets away from company headquarters
Regardless of the reason, it’s the flexibility and reasonable pricing that make temporary or short term leasing options so valuable. It’s also why these options are increasing in popularity — decision makers at Tampa organizations realize that they have an ‘office space safety net’ if they have issues with their current space.
