Relocating Your Headquarters to South Florida: What You Need to Know About Office Buildouts

Miami is an important hub for national and international businesses, which is one reason why an increasing number of corporations are choosing to relocate their headquarters to the sunny skies and sandy shores of South Florida.

Because of this, competition for office and warehouse spaces is tough. You’ll want to make sure that the building itself, along with the location for your office buildout, will be the right fit for your company.

Here are a few other things you should know about office buildouts in SoFla:

  • Building codes in South Florida are unique to the local climate and geography – This can sometimes surprise transplants to the area because building processes and regulations are different here than elsewhere in the United States. Many of our building codes have to do with our structures needing to withstand the intense climate of the region. Hiring a local contractor who understands our specific construction needs ahead of time can help your office project run in a more efficient manner.

  • Rules differ even from building to building – No two buildings are necessarily alike in terms of their rules for vendors or construction. You must be aware of these regulations to plan around potentially restricted hours of operation or accommodate any unique building requirements related to plumbing, mechanical, fire, etc. This could also include strategically planning your high-noise and high-impact work around any of the building’s restrictions.

  • Existing operations from other units can impact your project – 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. For example, mechanical systems in neighboring units could impact how you proceed with your installation. 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.
