ALTERATIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS
Prior to the initiation of work, the landlord must approve all improvements, additions or alterations in writing. This includes, but is not limited to, drywall construction, electrical, telephone, and HVAC. Tenant’s final plans should be submitted to the Property Manager, who will review. If approval is granted Tenant must use an approved General Contractor and subcontractors. A list of approved GC’s will be provided to tenants interested in performing additional alterations and improvements to their space.
Contractors will be responsible for any damage they cause to both Tenant spaces and common areas. This includes, but is not limited to, wall, carpeting, floors, doors, ceilings, and landscaping. Any damage caused by contractors will be resolved either by contractor or by the Property Manager, at the contractor’s expense and to the Property Manager’s satisfaction. It is suggested that prior to construction, the contractor submit to the Property Manager a list of existing damage for which it is not responsible.
The contractor is required to cover all carpeting and floors in common areas when bringing building materials into or out of the Buildings. Building material trash may not be placed in the dumpster unless previously arranged with the Property Manager. There may be a charge for this. The contractor is responsible for a thorough clean up of the contracted space and common areas each day/night. Sheetrock dust must be vacuumed; furniture, sills, wood molding, and base dusted; light fixtures dusted, paint removed from non-painted areas; glue removed from base, walls, etc.
If Tenant is allowed to use its own contractor for plans approved by the Landlord, the contractor must submit a construction deposit to Cushman & Wakefield prior to the commencement of work. The deposit is equivalent to the lesser of 10% of the total job or $1,000. This deposit is completely refundable after all work is complete per this section of the Tenant Handbook, and upon Tenant’s approval.
