Don’t Forget About These Essential Components of a High-Rise Office Buildout

Much of Miami is built up and not out, especially in key office districts like Brickell. If you’re planning an office construction project in a SoFla high rise, there are some essential construction components your general contractor must consider.

High-Rise Office Construction Challenges

The logistics of high-rise construction projects are many. From thinking through how you will get materials up and down floors to how you will plan your construction schedule around the building’s hours of operation, there are many procedures and challenges that need to be assessed and analyzed during pre-construction.

Some that can get overlooked if you don’t hire a local contractor who is experienced with Miami construction include giving due consideration to the following components:

  • Existing operations from other units – To accurately plan the needs for your office space within a shared high-rise building, you must also know about the operations in other units. Don’t neglect this step in an effort to speed up your project, as it could have an impact on the design and construction of your project.
  • The building’s fire alarm and sprinkler systems – Understanding the building and its fire alarm system before beginning any build-out can prevent unwanted interruptions during construction.
  • The building’s HVAC system and air controllers – An office renovation requires the building to be equipped with a mechanical system that recirculates air and has a fresh air intake to purify, filter and clean the air. Some building tenants may require additional exhaust systems in their rooms. All of this must be assessed and analyzed in advance to ensure compliance with safety codes and regulations during construction.
  • The building’s rules – No two buildings are necessarily alike in terms of their rules for vendors or construction. You must be aware of them and plan around potentially restricted hours of operation. This could also include strategically planning your high-noise and high-impact work around any of the building’s restrictions.

Moreover, if the office will be built on multiple floors, there may be other factors to take into account.
