Tenant Improvements

Re/Max 4000

Project consisted of four new high-end apartment buildings comprising of #48 rental units within 64,000 sf, in Grand Junction, Colorado. Spring 2011 completion.

Tenant Improvements

These are improvements of a commercial space that are agreed to in contract between the building owner and the tenant. In addition to improvements, there also may be language in the contract that allows for modification of the commercial space in order to make the area better suited for the tenant’s business. These tenant improvements are then custom alterations that owners of commercial spaces make specifically for their tenants’ individual needs.

Tenant Improvements

As with anything under the umbrella of commercial construction, there are a host of specific improvements that can be required when looking at tenant improvements. Fresh paint and new flooring are often the most common superficial changes that can be made to a commercial space in order to meet your specific tenants needs. There may, however, be larger improvements. Alteration to plumbing and electrical systems may require more in-depth work, depending on the scope of the project. Or perhaps more structural changes need to take place—changes to the ceilings, flooring, and walls.

  • Technology and TI

    Clients and their tenants often want to be able to see what a design concept will look like in real life. This is where Western Constructors, INC. will use our cutting-edge technology to aid our clients and their tenants in the design process. Our 3-D printers and virtual reality systems make it easy for us to show you what the finished product will look like after we’ve completed the tenant improvements. This is a valuable tool for our clients because it ensures that time and money are saved in the long haul.

  • Communication

    You certainly want to avoid a dissatisfied tenant, or a breach in contract, which is why we take the time upfront to sit down and discuss every element of the construction process. This includes providing you with detailed estimates in order to avoid future change orders. Communication is everything to us here at Western Constructors, INC.

    Part of the communication process also entails specific communication throughout the construction phase of the project. This includes providing picture updates of progress, building department inspection reports, schedule updates, and written communication about any snafus or delays. It is also important to ensure that utilities are set up and working before tenant improvements begin. This will help avoid delays in the beginning. Upon completion, we will set up a final walkthrough with our client and the tenant to ensure that everything has been completed as desired and that there aren’t any items left on the punch list.

  • Pre-Construction

    At Western Constructors, we understand that one of the most critical phases of project management takes place before ground is broken. You receive the most value for your project when we work collaboratively with you from the earliest possible planning stages. The reason is simple: design and construction are one fluid process – one that deserves careful attention to create an outstanding experience and product. Working together, we provide critical, thorough analysis of design concepts to ensure that your vision and your budget meet. And when budgetary challenges arise, our experienced team provides creative solutions and attractive alternatives that help you make informed decisions and keep the project on track.

  • General Contracting

    Western Constructor’s reputation for success and efficiency in general contracting extends back to our origination in 1974. Our General Contracting services span your entire project, from the initial planning stages until the punch list is closed out. Throughout construction, your project is managed with 100% dedication to timely delivery, responsive service, strict cost control and meticulous attention to detail.

    Western Constructors has built a strong reputation throughout the Western Slope for managing construction processes and recruiting the most qualified subcontractors for our construction projects. We partner with Owners, trade contractors and architects to identify project goals and designs. We are then able to use this information to provide staging and sequencing plans, as well as detailed project schedules. During this time, we consistently identify sensitive issues that may impact the budget and project timeline.

    At Western Constructors, we understand that no two construction projects are the same. Our general contracting team uses past experiences and strong relationships in order to create the most qualified construction professionals and plans for each project.

  • Construction Management

    Western Constructors can make any construction project run more smoothly and efficiently. We offer comprehensive construction management services, providing expert consultation to the designer and /or the Owner. In this role, we take on as much of the project coordination as the Owner desires. This can include the budgeting, bidding process, schedule optimization, quality control and close-out. Using tested policies and procedures, Western Constructors proactively manages the scheduling and purchasing process so the project will be built with a plan.

    The Construction Management process allows the Owner to select a Construction Manager (CM) to share his construction knowledge during initial stages of design. The Construction Manager (CM) acts as a third leg to assist the Owner and designer during the conceptual design phase with value-added information.

    During construction, the Construction Manager (CM) supervises the trade contractors and manages the budget, the schedule, scope of work changes and request for payment, and assures the adherence to the contract documents. Because the Construction Manager (CM) works as a professional advisor, he remains an ally and agent of the Owner and Designer, giving unbiased information and directing the trade contractors throughout the design and construction of the project. Construction Management partners can save time, bypasses general contractor markups and fees, and passes direct bid savings onto the Owner.

    Construction Management has become increasingly popular in recent years – particularly on complex projects requiring comprehensive management oversight.

  • Design/Build

    The design/build methodology is a proven way to keep construction projects leaner, faster and more efficient. Western Constructors is well-versed in this approach. Having the design and construction responsibility within a single source control, minimizes communication issues, controls the budget and reduces Change Orders. We are a true collaborator, integrating our expertise with the rest of the project team. This seamless coordination makes projects run more smoothly, with minimal disruptions and downtime.

    With this approach, the General Contractor holds the Architect’s contract. The result is a single point of contact for the Owner since the General Contractor is responsible for both design and construction.

    Western Constructors is a strong advocate of this approach. Design/build partnering is a method of doing business through a team effort that helps providers of services and recipients of those services to work together to achieve mutual goals. As the practice of construction partnering has become widespread, it has demonstrated its effectiveness as a means of minimizing disputes. Not only does construction partnering preclude major disputes by obviating the need for alternative dispute resolutions, but it also is a proven provider of cost savings. Most importantly, construction partnering brings about an atmosphere of cooperation in which a collaborative effort enables projects to be completed within budget and on or ahead of schedule.

    This atmosphere of cooperation is largely based on team building, which is the foundation of Western Constructors’ approach. Trust, open communication, and dedication to common goals are all significant components of this approach.

Our Company Culture:
