Success is all about partnership. From having a proper electrical system to using decor that wows clients, it’s impossible to manage all of the details needed to create a successful commercial building on your own. Whether you’re the CEO of a new business or an established organization, it’s critical that you establish and maintain all the right outside connections to keep your business running.
Your Five Essential Partners
You don’t have to be a professional at everything; in fact, it’s not recommended! To get a job done right, it’s always wisest to contract and work with the people who specialize in that specific project type. Here are five collaborators you want to connect with early, and keep around for all your business needs:
1. Interior Designers
While some building owners may not see the value in partnering with an interior designer, the decor of your building drastically impacts its environment—and its success. There have been dozens of studies that directly link optimal productivity with aesthetically pleasing and superior interior design.
With good design you can boost productivity among employees or create a more welcoming environment for future clients. The little details, from furniture selections to paint colors or functional appliances, can make all the difference.
2. Fire Sprinkler Company
When you operate a building, your first priority should always be the safety of those who will be utilizing your space. Hiring a certified fire sprinkler company to fortify your structure against potential fires is a critical element to any emergency and safety plan. When you choose to partner with A&A Fire Protection, we routinely service and inspect your fire alarms to ensure every piece of equipment is in working order.
A robust fire sprinkler system will protect your building and its occupants against fast, deadly fires. By partnering with a fire sprinkler company like A&A Fire Protection to prevent fires from destroying your commercial building, you can have the peace of mind that both people and property are protected.
One of the most vital partnerships your building needs is the use of a certified electrician. All buildings require proper lighting to function fully, and when the lights go out, your building becomes inoperable.
Routine check-ups from electricians are vital to preventing your building from having power shortages, electrical malfunctions or even an electrical fire. Shoddy electrical work can lead to other dangerous hazards such as burning or shocking occupants—so be sure to find an electrician you know you can trust.
4. HVAC Team
It’s easy to underestimate your HVAC system (you might have even forgotten about it!). When the heat and air are correctly running, we stop thinking about the complicated network of gadgets, tubes, gasses, and more that make moderate indoor temperatures possible.
You must have a reliable HVAC team on your side that can deliver routine, dependable HVAC maintenance and repairs to your building. Otherwise, when your AC and heating go out, it can not only be be uncomfortable, but dangerous. Dirty HVAC systems can even lead to mold growth and mildew, which can become a serious risk for those with respiratory concerns.
Don’t let your heating and air system bring down the success of your commercial property—get an HVAC team on standby for repairs and maintenance appointments.
Where would we be without plumbers? We have benefited from clean, safe plumbing technology for centuries. If we could offer one piece of advice, it’s this: don’t wait until there’s a problem to find a company to work with! Water leaks can cause significant damage quickly if left alone for too long. If you already have a company you work with, you’ll be able to skip the searching and vetting phase in an emergency.
Owning a building requires you to wear a lot of hats. Operating a facility can sometimes feel overwhelming, acting as everything from a part-time janitor to business owner. But you shouldn’t have to do it all! Choose to partner early with other professionals like an interior designer, fire sprinkler designer or electrician to set your building up for success.
