Generic Office Tenant Improvement (TI) Construction Costs

November 4, 2008

Sam Burkhouse, the President of TiCon Construction (408-866-1500; sam@ticon.com) has been kind enough to provide some up-to-date pricing for generic office tenant improvement costs in Silicon Valley. It should be noted that the below numbers are “high level” and actual site conditions, the size of the project, and market forces will all have an effect on final pricing. Contact TiCon for specific pricing. Nonetheless, these numbers should provide smaller tenants with some guideline pricing for standard office improvements.
