Building Your Vision: Finding the Right Home for Your Practice

When it comes to building your first practice, moving locations or renovating your existing practice, there are a number of decisions that need to be made throughout the process. It’s hard to choose any single part that is the most important, because all of the parts can have a strong impact on the project.

That’s why we created the Building Your Vision series for Patterson Today. This series will provide you with helpful information and tips about taking the office you have now and turning it into the office you want it to be. Starting in our Patterson Today Winter 2015 edition, which should be arriving in your mailbox any day now, we’re featuring an in-depth article about a different component of office design. For our first article, we talked with tenant rep commercial real estate expert, Tim Carlson of Cresa, about what real estate considerations need to be taken into account when your practice decides to move its location or do a renovation. It is vitally important that you establish what priorities you have for your location, and Tim has five main criteria to start with:

  • Location
  • Access
  • Visibility
  • Functionality
  • Cost
