Is your medical or dental office space feeling out of date, worn, and tired? Staying on top of property maintenance can be a hassle for business owners, but having a plan for continual refreshes is often extremely beneficial in the long term. Renovations that bring your space up to speed with the latest materials, technology and aesthetic trends play an important role in maintaining your reputation with current and prospective clients, as wells as ensuring your space is safe and efficient. If you’re hoping to give your medical or dental office an overhaul in the current or upcoming year, below are a few tips to consider before beginning your project.
A Unique Environment
As far as commercial renovations are concerned, there’s no denying that medical and dental suites require an extra level of detail when it comes to both planning and execution. Where other commercial spaces may be able to ‘close up shop’ for a few days without directly affecting their clientele, businesses in the health sector can find it tricky to navigate the balance of patient demand with operating hours. This makes a partnering with a construction firm that has a refined process paramount to success and minimal disruptions.
Keeping Things Sterile
Another unique element to medical and dental renovations is the necessity to maintain a sterile environment throughout and after construction. Partner with your contractors to design a plan that isolate dust and debris that result from renovations, along with any other contaminants that may enter the air.
Schedule, Schedule, Schedule
Having a clear cut schedule is crucial to any project, but becomes even more important when you factor in having to reschedule patient appointments or alter office hours. Depending on the scale of your renovations, it may be possible to get work done with minimal disruption to your day to day operations. Should a major overhaul be required, it’s best to plan well in advance to give your patients and staff ample time to make any necessary arrangements.
Review Safety Protocols
Medical and dental offices handle plenty of sensitive client information, and should take precautions to ensure that all data will be secure throughout renovations. Make sure your renovation crew is aware of your protocol as well as any areas to avoid to avoid any breaches in security.
