If you own your own business, it’s important to know that the condition of your office building can have a direct effect on employee morale, customer perception and personal work ethic. Studies show that a nice office can lead to increased happiness for your employees during work.

If you need facilities maintenance, remodeling, or new building construction, call a professional contractor in St. Augustine, FL today.

Maintenance

Leaky pipes, mold, rotting wood, etc. are all common problems within an office space. At The Hardy Group, our skilled team of professionals can come in and take care of many different issues that arise. The last thing you want is for clients to come in and see a messy building that isn’t properly maintained. Not only does a run-down office look bad on the surface, but it’s important to repair any damage within your building because the issues could lead to big costs down the road. For example, if rotting wood is left untreated it could eventually collapse the foundation, costing you thousands.

 

Remodel

Does your office need a visual overhaul? Let our team help you. A modern and sleek office can be the difference-maker when you’re trying to land that client or make that sale. When customers/clients come in to your office and see that you put effort into making your office unique and appealing, they are more likely to have a positive view of your business. They are even more apt to trust you because if you treat your business with that much care you’re likely to treat them with similar care. From putting in new light fixtures to indoor/outdoor repainting, even room expansion, we do it all. Don’t remodel your office by yourself. Rely on the professionals to get it done for you in a quick, efficient way.

 

Commercial Construction

It may be getting time for a new office building. Whether you need to build an office from scratch or expand to a new space, contact The Hardy Group. Commercial construction can be a bear. There are often more regulations, higher stakes and more specific needs for a commercial project than for residential. We can help you through the process, from the initial quote all the way until the building is fully finished. Our team builds customized workspaces for people in a timely, cost-effective and efficient manner. We handle all types of commercial construction projects in St. Augustine including concrete block installation, tilt-up concrete structures, steel buildings, frame construction, and more. You can rest easy knowing that professionals with years of experience are handling your project.

The Benefit of Building Your Own Office Instead of Leasing

If you are a business owner and looking to move to a new office, one major question you might have is whether to buy a space and build an office, or lease an existing space. There are certainly advantages and disadvantages to both, but now is the time to buy instead of lease. The Hardy Group has years of experience building commercial properties, and we know that often the benefits of owning your own space outweigh the drawbacks in the long run.

Be Your Own Landlord
Dealing with a landlord can be a pain. If your office encounters a problem (plumbing, electrical, etc.) you will have to go through your landlord in order to fix it. This is sometimes stressful because not all landlords will handle situations responsibly. If you own your own space, you can solve problems on your own time, and if something needs to be fixed, you can ensure that it gets done when you need it done.

Customize Your Workspace
If you decide to build your own office, you can have control over how the space looks and functions. You have to ability to create a truly unique workspace that looks just the way you want it to. Additionally, you’ll have peace-of-mind knowing that you can stay in your location for however long you want.

Financial Benefits
When you build your own space, you will build equity over time. Eventually, you will be able to use this equity as collateral to expand your business, fix property issues, or even fund your retirement. You will also have tax benefits, and take in annual depreciation deductions on your property. It is important to choose a contractor that will give you affordable prices as well. The Hardy Group will provide a thorough assessment and always give a fair estimate based on your needs.

Take Advantage of the Market
Right now, the cost to acquire real estate is at a historical low. It is a buyer’s market today, and it won’t be that way for long. Take advantage of the market before it has a chance to rebound. Plus, your monthly costs will remain steady if you own the property, so you won’t have to worry about random increases during your loan period.

If you are thinking about making the move to a new office, consider building one instead of leasing. While it is a major endeavor, you can have total control over your place of business and have the ability to really make it your own. Of course, it is unwise to consider building if you don’t have a reliable contractor you trust. The Hardy Group has been providing expert design and construction services in Northeast Florida for over 30 years. They have the knowledge and expertise to build your dream workplace.
