Building a Multi-Floor Office Space in a High-Rise: What You Need to Know

High-rise office construction projects can pose unique challenges. First, the building itself may have rules and restrictions regarding when and how you can complete construction. Additionally, there are the logistics of getting your materials up and down while being mindful of high-noise, high-impact work.


Despite these challenges and logistical undertakings, multi-floor office build-outs themselves are not necessarily any more complicated than a single-floor office buildout in a high-rise.


What to Know About Multi-Floor Office Construction Projects


Multi-floor office construction build-outs offer some flexibility in terms of how you proceed with your project. At Seacoast Construction, we’ve had clients take various approaches depending on their design goals.


Here are a few possibilities for how you could proceed with your multi-level office project:


  • Undergo two separate builds (e.g., complete the first floor in its entirety before doing construction on the second). We’ve seen this done in a situation when the first floor was dedicated to client-facing use and the second floor was solely for internal use. We’ve also seen this approach used when the office is divided into different areas based on division.


  • Undergo projects on both floors concurrently. This can be beneficial when you want a cohesive move-in date for the entire company.


  • Take on just a floor and a half, rather than two entire floors – An example of this design is one in which the first-floor perimeter was lined with manager offices and the middle area was filled with employees. Then, on the half floor above was a dining space, kitchenette, lounge, C-suite offices, a space for admins, along with a more open office layout.
