How to Create the Perfect Floor
Plan for Your Commercial Space

There is so much to consider when designing and constructing a commercial building, from the location to the permitting and the building architect. One of the biggest things to consider is the floor plan of your commercial space. Neenan Archistruction® specializes in architectural design and commercial construction. Below, we’ll take a look at how to create the perfect floor plan for your commercial space. Get a free estimate today!

Tailor the Floor Plan to Your Business and Its Custom Workflow

Above all else, a floor plan has to make sense, and it has to work. For example, a floor plan for a lawyer’s office will be much different than a floor plan for a retail store or even a coffee shop. The floor plan must support the business’s workflow in order to promote and not impede productivity and efficiency.

Account for Multi-Purpose Spaces

It can be hard to know what a business’s space needs may even be, especially if they are a growing business. Thus, designing multi-purpose spaces in commercial buildings is a good idea that can offer more than one use and that can accommodate a business’s changing needs as necessary.

Attempt to Eliminate Unused Spaces

Small closets, extra storage spaces, and unused corners plague many existing commercial spaces — many of which are caused by a poor floor plan. When you sit down with your premier commercial construction design/build firm, such as Neenan Archistruction®, we take a collaborative design process approach, consulting you every step of the way. We take a hard look at your commercial building design to ensure you are 100% satisfied with it and that it meets all of your needs with very little unused spaces.

Resist the Temptation to Cater to Every Employee's Need

Small businesses who enlist the help of a top-rated commercial design/build firm can fall into the trap of asking for a space to meet each and every employee’s need. This can lead to added costs in construction materials and to spaces that you realize you don’t really need but you are now stuck with. While it’s exciting to build a new building just for you and you want to personalize it, be careful not to be so customized that the space ends up unused.


Our commercial architecture firm loves to help businesses design a commercial space that will meet their needs for the present and the future. We work closely with you to ensure your commercial design is everything you could dream of and more.
