Our Property Management team works closely with the Special Projects Division to provide in-house tenant improvements. This unique setup provides tenants with an efficient, cost-effective, and easy way to move into their new space.

What Are Tenant Improvements?

Tenant improvements are a type of construction project that refers to the customization or renovation of a commercial property to meet the specific needs of a tenant. Generic 1

Tenant improvement examples can range from minor cosmetic changes, such as painting or carpeting, to major modifications, such as installing new walls or adding plumbing and electrical systems. Tenant improvements also include converting an existing space to a new use, for example, converting office space to a medical clinic. 

Commercial tenant improvements and renovations are generally negotiated between the tenant and the landlord as part of the lease agreement.

Tenants typically bear the expense of their tenant improvements. However, frequently, the landlord may contribute to the improvement costs, especially if the improvements are necessary and increase property values.

Why Work With an In-House Tenant Improvement Contractor?

Working with a contractor that provides in-house brokerage services, property management, and construction support can provide several benefits, including:

  • Streamlined Communication: With an in-house tenant improvement contractor, you'll have a single point of contact for all aspects of your project, streamlining communication and making the process more efficient.
  • Comprehensive Services: They can provide a wide range of services, from helping you find the perfect space to designing and building out that space with project management and construction support. This can save you time by eliminating the need to work with multiple vendors.
  • Expertise: An in-house tenant improvement contractor with brokerage services can help you find the right space for your needs, while project management and construction support can ensure that your project is completed on time, on budget, and to the highest standards. They have a deep understanding of the real estate market and can help you make informed decisions about your project.
  • Accountability: You'll have a single point of contact accountable for all aspects of your project, ensuring your improvements run smoothly and any issues are addressed quickly and effectively. The relationship doesn’t end when construction is complete, with in-house property management facilities services continuing to provide essential maintenance to the building and support for your leased space. 
  • Cost Savings: By working with a tenant improvement contractor that provides in-house brokerage services, property management, and construction support, you often save time and money by bundling services and eliminating the need to work with multiple vendors.

Overall, for tenant improvement services, working with a team that includes in-house brokerage and property management provides many benefits, including cost savings, time savings, expertise, accountability, and quality assurance.

But don’t just take our word for it … here’s what one of our clients had to say about working with our teams.

“I recently worked with the Rush Companies for leasing and construction on my new Plastic Surgery clinic in Gig Harbor. They were competitive on the bid for the buildout and reliably stuck to timelines and budget as we initially agreed. The buildout looks extremely polished and I have received numerous compliments on the quality and scope of the work.

Personally, I was impressed by how quickly they were able to complete tasks and the rate at which the space evolved. Most importantly, the team and their subcontractors were extremely professional and accountable. I never felt brushed off if I had concerns or wanted something changed. I would happily recommend to other local businesses.

Thank you, Danny Kruse, VP Rush Properties, Brett Griffin, Director of Special Projects, Brandon Hardeman, Superintendent, Karen Fairall, Director of Brokerage Services, and Kayla Dyer, Property Manager!”
