    1. Architectural Design Services
    2. Space Planning
    San Diego tenant should hire architecture for space planning. One advantage for using an architectural firm to do the space planning is that negotiating a better price is possible if that firm is to be used for the design of the site chosen. An architect's assistance is advisable if your projects involved reconfiguring, offices, ceilings, finishes, etc. They will ensure that all building code and other requirement are met in the completion of the work.

    Before companies/tenant should begin searching for space, they should evaluate their space needs first.

    When searching for a new space, you should try to avoid touring for spaces that the initial estimate differs considerably from the company's actual requirement. Significant time can be wasted for touring spaces that are basically the wrong size.

    For larger companies, an architect or space planner should be retained at any early stage to perform this analysis.
