Commercial Space Consulting
Often when a business owner is looking at a space for their business there are more questions than answers.
Does this space meet the requirements for my business?
What changes need to be made to meet local building codes?
ADA? Fire Department?  Health Department?

At ABL we are experts at the ins and outs of the codes, laws and regulations that affect the construction or remodel of any business. We have been in business for 20+ years and have served all kinds of businesses from restaurants to go-kart tracks.

Contact us to setup a free walk-through.  If you are a business owner we will tailor a space assessment to your business concept, giving you the information you need to make an informed decision.  If you are a building owner or real estate agent we’ll give you a report on what (if any) changes would need to be made to a space to accommodate different businesses.  We can even include estimates to make changes so your ready when you show the property to a restaurant, out patient clinic, or clothing boutique.
