We are often asked by doctors to assess whether a space is or is not appropriate for lease for a new dental or medical clinic. A professional commercial realtor and lease consultant can assess whether the demographics, the competition, the lease price/lease terms and other aspects of the viability of your future in any particular area. As contractors, we do not provide such services, but can refer you to firms that specialize in such work, should you contact our office’s sales team.
From a design and construction point of view, there are several important issues that you should take into consideration. We strongly recommend that once you have selected a property, call us and have us provide you with a free assessment of the property, so you can be aware of the potential problems and the impact of such problems on your project costs and schedule. Typical important considerations include:
There are many other considerations which are best addressed through an in-person visit. Beware of signing agreements on properties which are advertised in an “as is” condition with property costs that seem too goo to be true. Such properties are typically leased or sold with that condition due to the fact that the current owner is aware that there may be significant issues which will cost a lot of money and time to address.
