LGE’s Tenant Improvement Process and Team

We have nearly 30-years of experience planning, designing and imagining awe-inspiring interiors for our clients who are looking to make their space uniquely their own. Recently, we’ve doubled-down by establishing a division exclusively focused on accelerating tenant-improvement schedules while still maintaining the highest standards of quality LGE is known for.

LGE’s Tenant Improvement Process in 5-steps:

Conceptual designInitial concepts take shape as LGE defines the project vision:

  • A customized client proposal that includes detailed specification guidelines, budget, and pre-construction agreement
  • Project schedule outlining design, engineering, build, and timeline

Budget & cost controlWith conceptual designs and proposal approval, LGE ensures adherence to budgets:

  • Controlling scope to ensure the design intent remains aligned with the established budget
  • Generates construction documents that adhere to project and budget scope
  • Competitive bidding from four qualified subcontractors for each trade to ensure quality and economy

Plan & permit approvalCoordinating required documents for permit approval prior to construction, LGE:

  • Manages the teams and required documents for maximum communication and transparency
  • Route architectural, engineering, and construction comments to drawings
  • Coordinates the submittal and permit process through city, municipal, and/or design review boards
  • Controlling scope to ensure the design intent remains aligned with the established budget
  • Generates construction documents that adhere to project and budget scope
  • Competitive bidding from four qualified subcontractors for each trade to ensure quality and economy

Construction administrationDuring construction, LGE manages tasks related to on-site activity and ensures:

  • Construction teams coordinate all aspects of a build with proper communication and approval
  • Development of weekly, day-to-day schedules to ensure on-time delivery
  • Weekly client updates with a three-week look ahead snapshots
  • Procore Construction Process software used for full client transparency

Close out & warranty – After completion of an LGE project, we continue to support clients by:

  • Providing an above-market 2-year warranty backed by more than 900 projects and a client repeat rate of over 92%
  • Following project close-out, LGE maintains relationships with building owner(s), ensuring complete project satisfaction
