If your business is in the doldrums or you’ve outgrown your existing commercial or retail space, a well-planned and executed renovation project can bring in more business or customers, and create a happier workforce.
While renovating an office, restaurant, or retail space can be an expensive undertaking, the payoffs can be immediate and long term. A renovation can modernize your business’s image, increase its visibility, and attract new customers. Commercial renovations can give even a well-known and established business a fresh start. Just ask McDonald’s how their Canada-wide program to update and make their restaurants more hip and modern attracted a whole new customer base and improved their business.
In the fast paced, high pressure world of restaurants, a poorly designed kitchen makes it harder for kitchen staff to prepare great food that can go from kitchen to table in an acceptable amount of time. The interior design of a restaurant can have a huge impact on whether or not people want to dine there, if they’ll come back, and if they’ll recommend it to friends. People are drawn to a newly renovated restaurant or store – it’s natural for them to want to see what’s different. If they’re impressed, they’ll keep coming back.
The science of retail anthropology studies the shopping and buying habits of consumers. A carefully designed and attractive retail layout can take into consideration how shoppers move through space and hunt for items to purchase. A modern, purpose designed retail layout can have a huge impact on how much time people stay in a store and how easy it is for them to find the items they want to buy.
A proper office renovation can improve employee morale and productivity in innumerable ways. Improved meeting spaces, work areas, kitchen and eating areas can all be combined to create a space that employees enjoy spending their days in. A beautifully designed office will also impress prospective customers and employees, and make them more likely to do business with you, or come to work for you.
