Once the planning is finalized with your space planner, architect, and interior designer, it's time to execute your vision. This is where the contractors come in and your business is suddenly in the hands of someone else. With that in mind, you want to make sure you find the most competent, reliable, and ethical contractors you can. Word of mouth is actually a reliable way to find a trustworthy outfit. Ask architects, commercial real estate owners, and other business that have relocated who they have worked with in the past and who they would recommend. You'll get a pretty clear idea what contractors have a solid record, and which will delay your move-in plans or deplete your budget.
