  How a Contractor Can Help You Pick the Right Space for Your Next Office
When it is time to build a new office for a business, select a reputable contractor that will assist in finding the perfect location for the new office to be built. A professional contractor will know the factors necessary to ensure a good office is properly built. Factors needed include access to sewage system, stability of land used to build the new office, if there is pollution in the area that the business may be liable for in the future, tax rates, municipal ordinances, zoning laws depending on what kind of office is being built, and possible expansion opportunities for the future. Finding out all the information can be very daunting and frustrating for a business. Luckily, a good contractor will know exactly what to look for and who to ask to get all the necessary information.

The first thing a contractor does to assist in locating the perfect location for a new office is to ask the business what they are looking for. Does the business want a single level office space or does the business want the office to have a certain number of floors? If the business wants to have multiple floors, the contractor will have to ensure the land used for the building is sturdy enough to handle the weight of a multi-story office building. Even a question such as if the business wants to have a parking lot on site, off site and if the parking lot will be for just employees or employees and clients will be just as important because it will determine more so how big a plot of land the contractor has to find.

If the contractor finds a good location to build, they have to go to the local planning board and find out the zoning laws, municipal ordinances, and tax rates. Zoning laws are put in place to prevent the interference of a new development with current businesses and residents in an effort to maintain the overall character of the community. Zoning laws dictate what activities are acceptable on certain empty lots. As previously mentioned, if the new office is a manufacturing office and not, for example a dental office, the zoning laws may not permit it as it could harm the atmosphere of the neighborhood. Zoning laws can also regulate items such as how many stories a building is, the total amount of space the structure is able to occupy, the setback of the building, the proportions of the building, and provision of parking.

Municipal ordinances are passed by towns and are considered a statute of that area and has the same effect as a law enacted by the state. Municipal codes can govern traffic regulation, building codes, and zoning laws. A proficient contractor will look into all the building codes and municipal ordinances to see if the location selected is the best one to build a new office.

No matter where a new building is placed, there are tax rates. Tax rates depend on the size of the structure, how many square feet it takes up, and the location it is in. Every city and town has their own tax rates. The contractor can look up the rates to ensure the business can afford the taxes on the size of office they want.
