Office Tenant Improvement Cost Guide

General Office Tenant Improvement Cost Guide

General Office Tenant Improvement Cost Guide

April 23, 2021

The changing dynamics of the workplace may have you curious about costs for renovating your company’s office. There’s certainly a lot of nuance that goes into pricing, but also a few rules of thumb. To help with the process, we’ve put together a Denver-based, costing rubric (from a general contractor’s point of view) that you can use in conversations with your architect and engineers to guide design with cost in mind.
Quick tip: In general, tenant improvement projects vary based on the number of enclosed spaces, as well as the level of finishes. The more rooms and enclosures built and number of high-end finish selections made, the more pricey a project becomes.
As always, we can assist in budgeting and bidding office improvement projects to accommodate budgets for a variety of office layout and quality options.

Weaver and Company is an internationally recognized, top medical supplier for skin prep gels and conductive pastes. Designed by Elsy Studios of Denver, the office and shipping warehouse renovation began with full demolition of 8,750 square feet of interior walls, ceilings, and finishes. During construction, Snyder’s field team was able to keep Weaver’s shipping warehouse fully operational.

“I am very delighted with the final project for Weaver’s new offices,” said David Weaver, president of Weaver and Company. “I enjoyed working with the entire crew at Snyder.”

Snyder Building Construction Awarded Fifth Cheba Hut Location

We’re excited to share about our continuing partnership with the Cheba Hut brand. Cheba Hut is a national chain of restaurants that is locally owned in Colorado. Construction on the new fast-casual toasted sub location (our fifth location together) is slated to begin January 2021 in Colorado Springs.

As Cheba Hut’s trusted GC, we’ve worked in conjunction with Koch Covostos Architects on four other locations in the last two years. These tenant finish restaurant projects begin as either new core and shell or former restaurant space and are transformed into Cheba Hut’s signature, fast-casual sandwich shop experience complete with custom painted murals.

“Snyder Building is a phenomenal company to work with,” says David Timmons, owner of Cheba Hut. We’ve worked with Matt Redick and Johnny Jones on many projects over the years for multiple restaurants/bars. We love working with them and plan to for years to come.”

We partner with Cheba Hut during preconstruction to conduct site surveys, identify any existing conditions and gain a complete understanding of long-lead purchases needs that help us contain cost and scheduling impacts. Each fast-casual restaurant tenant finish is approximately 2,500 square feet and includes full front-of-house and back-of-house construction (including walk-in cooler installation, dry storage, new restrooms, floorings, walls, ceilings, kitchen mechanical, counter service millwork, in-house dining, a full-service bar with underground lines feeding 10-12 draft beer taps, and a custom-designed, unique mural wall).

Cheba Hut is a Colorado-grown, “Toasted” sub concept that has been curing munchies since its start in 1998. Founder Scott Jennings decided to showcase the harmony between great tasting food and a very specific counter-culture. The menu features over 30 signature sub sandwiches, as well as a variety of Rice Krispy treats, salads and munchies. Most locations also offer craft beer bars that feature local beers from neighborhood breweries. Cheba Huts can be found in Arizona, Colorado, California, Oregon, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. What really sets Cheba Hut apart, though, can only be experienced in their shops. Cheba Hut combines homegrown food with real people in a relaxed environment. In response to the pandemic, they updated their app to be more efficient and better suited to the needs of our customers. Additionally, in their communication with franchisees, they encourage them to brainstorm creative solutions that will help them continue to offer a safe and comfortable dining experience to their customers.

3400 South Broadway Adaptive Reuse Project

3400 South Broadway Adaptive Reuse Project

June 5, 2019
Written by: Audrey Wilson

We are excited to announce the completion of the $1.8M renovation of the old lighting outlet in Englewood, Colorado at 3400 South Broadway. The 100-year-old building now bolsters exposed ceilings, glass storefronts, and new offices. The renovation, built by us and designed by ArcWest Architects, features significant upgrades to all levels, a new 6,750-square-foot finished office and nearly 21,500 square feet of leaseable restaurant and retail space on South Broadway.

The former lighting outlet had many other identities including Wagner’s patio furniture store and JCPenney. After a near full demolition of the interior, the renovations created open and airy leaseable space along the main level and mezzanine, along with a fully occupiable basement level.

Our team worked closely with Anchor Engineering to create structural solutions that kept the building design intent intact while providing much needed upgrades throughout. Future tenants will love the high-visibility corner with vast open structure and large amounts of natural light.

We also partnered with Colorado C-PACE and building owners Ken Fukayama of BHS properties, and Benjamin Schuessler and Jacob Cohley of Lincoln Energy to support the owners in integrating energy savings and resource efficiency into the building. Read more about this partnership at https://copace.com/retail-owner-finances-energy-savings-project-through-states-c-pace-program/.

Current tenants of 3400 South Broadway include Lincoln Energy Partners, BHS Properties, and Del Rio Royalty Company with available leasable space for future tenants.
