WRITTEN BY rightsize

The transition period between tenants in a commercial space is notoriously hectic. While one company is moving out, you are focused on both finding a new occupant and returning the space to its original pristine condition.

Rightsize eliminates the headaches and roadblocks in this process. We offer turnkey facility decommissioning services for commercial real estate spaces, coordinating every detail of a project so you can get back to business as usual, without juggling multiple vendors and service providers. Our goal is to make the change from one tenant to another as smooth and efficient as possible. Rightsize has specialized expertise in this field, having decommissioned more than 12 million square feet of office space for businesses across the country.

Rightsize’s facility decommissioning includes: 

Asset Disposition

Many leases call for a tenant to remove furniture, technology and other assets from a commercial space to prepare it for the next occupant. This is often an enormous undertaking that requires professional assistance to complete. Whether a tenant doesn’t fulfill its lease obligations or doesn’t know where to start, the Rightsize team is committed to offering the CRE team and tenants a streamlined and sustainable approach to Asset Disposition. In fact, less than 5% of all FF&E that we decommission is taken to a landfill; everything else is resold, recycled or refurbished.

Space Restoration

Once an office has been cleared out, there is still a substantial amount of work necessary to return it to broom-swept, move-in condition for the next tenant. Rightsize provides customized Space Restoration services to make the space look like new, making repairs, replacements and alterations as required by the lease. Services include:

  • Removing and replacing flooring
  • Patching and repainting walls
  • Replacing damaged ceiling tile and grid work
  • Taking out IT cabling and guaranteeing code compliance
  • Dismantling signage, network rooms or industrial racking

Value-Added Solutions

Rightsize also works with a selected group of Value-Added Service Partners (VASPs) to ensure a seamless transition between one tenant and the next. These companies specialize in services from IT cabling to moving equipment rental.
