High Demand Features for Commercial Building Designs

Whether you’re a commercial property owner or a business owner looking to develop a new building in a new location, constructing a commercial building that you, your employees, and visitors will love is of the utmost importance. With that in mind, you may be asking yourself what goes into making a commercial building something that people will enjoy? At Neenan Archistruction™, we have the answer.

Our Colorado team is made up of both architects and construction contractors, allowing us to bring you the best in both from one location. We have years of experience constructing commercial buildings, so we know what goes into making them great. Continue reading below and reach out to our team if you have questions!

Fitness Facility

People like working out, and they like it even more when they don’t have to go anywhere to get in a good workout. For this reason, many companies are starting to offer their own fitness facility inside their commercial building. Whether you choose to build a fully stocked fitness facility into your design plans or you want a small area with all of the necessities, your employees are sure to enjoy it.

In addition to making it more convenient for your employees to exercise, it can also help with the overall morale of the company. Many people use exercise as a way to reduce stress, and it’s no secret that work can be stressful. By providing a space where people can work out right on campus, it makes it easier for your employees to take the break they need, burn off some steam, and get back to the work at hand.

Communal Kitchen or Cafeteria

Everyone has to eat, right? Another high-demand feature for commercial buildings is a communal kitchen or cafeteria. This is a great place for employees to take their lunch break or grab a quick bite to eat. It’s also a great place to socialize with other employees.

If you have the space, a communal kitchen can also be a great place to host company-wide potlucks or holiday parties. This is a great way to bring everyone together and create a sense of community within your commercial building.

Natural Lighting

Nobody wants to spend all day working in a building that is filled with artificial light. This can be especially draining during the winter months when the days are shorter and your employees end up getting to work before the sun is up and going home once it has already set. For this reason, we always recommend including multiple sources of natural light in your commercial building design.

One way to do this is by incorporating skylights or solar tubes into the design. This allows natural light to flood into the space, making it more pleasant for your employees. Another way to add natural light is by using large windows. Not only will this brighten up the space, but it can also help reduce energy costs, as you won’t have to rely as much on artificial lighting.

Trendy Style

When you think of commercial buildings, the first thing that probably comes to mind is a boring office building. But it doesn’t have to be this way! We believe that commercial buildings can be both functional and stylish. One way to incorporate style into your design is by using unique materials or finishes on the exterior of the building. This can help your commercial building stand out from the rest and make it more inviting for people to come inside.
