Lesson Learned/Best Practice
“Minor Renovation” OR rooms become full demo rooms if more than cosmetic upgrades are performed.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Determine during design if Minor Renovation OR rooms are truly appropriate/desired, because if anything other than cosmetic upgrades are required, the cost impact will meet or exceed a full renovation. Replacing/relocating existing HVAC equipment, adding new lights, and installing a stainless steel package requires a tremendous amount of demolition.
