Another white box is in the books!!

White boxes aren’t very exciting from a construction perspective, but can be HUGE from a leasing perspective.

Often times, an outgoing tenant will leave a space in such poor condition that few people can see past the mess.

That’s where whiteboxing comes in.

“Whitebox” is a term that refers to creating a space that has little more than the minimum requirements for occupancy – lights, HVAC, ADA bathroom, acoustic ceiling (usually), and a concrete slab.

In this case, the space was a former dry cleaner’s location.

To say it had not been deep cleaned in a very long time would be an understatement.

Even though an end cap space, it just was not leasing.

So the owner hired CPEX to white box the unit on a design build basis, which saved our client time and hassle.

After getting design plans completed, approved by the owner, and a building permit issued, we went to work.

Our scope included:

  • Removing remaining contents.
  • Replacing the HVAC system.
  • Relocating the electric panel and installing new circuits.
  • Reconfiguring the existing bathroom to meet ADA requirements
  • Installing a new drop ceiling.

The new space looks incredible!

A new business is sure to call this home very soon!!!
