How Long Does an Office Buildout Take in Miami?

Time is money, especially in construction. Not only can delays increase the cost of your project, but it also means it’s one less day, week, or sometimes month(s!) when your employees are without a new office space. We know you need your office buildout completed on time, on budget and sans delay.

So, what exactly does the timeline look like for an office construction project in Miami?

A Typical Office Buildout Construction Schedule

 In general, construction timelines are associated with a project’s scope and complexity. New construction usually takes longer than renovation projects, but there are other factors that also impact how long an office buildout will take in South Florida.

Before getting started, you’ll need to ensure you’ve received zoning board approval in Miami-Dade. You (or, rather, your general contractor) will also need to apply for and secure the appropriate permits for building an office in Miami.

In addition to those compulsory steps, the construction schedule typically looks like this to build out a new office shell and finish with Class A quality:

  • Pre-construction and design: 10-12 weeks
  • Permitting: 6 weeks (give or take)
  • Construction: 16-20 weeks

In total, it takes about 8-9 months to complete construction for a new Class A office. If a space just needs more aesthetic upgrades, they can typically be achieved in fewer than 5-6 months depending on the size and condition of the existing space.
