Making the decision to construct a building for your business is an exciting time for any entrepreneur. The many years of hard work have brought you to the point where you are able to build the perfect space for your business. But before the official ground breaking ceremony, every entrepreneur should spend a good amount of time researching and studying the applicable laws and codes related to their new business venture. Having a sound plan in place before getting started will not only save the business time but money as well.
For many business owners, new construction is a completely foreign concept. It’s vitally important for every entrepreneur to seek consul from a commercial construction lawyer or business attorney to establish an efficient and sound strategy. One of the first thing the Minneapolis business lawyers at KTF Law discuss with entrepreneurs looking to build is location.
Anyone with a background in marketing knows the three most important things for a business are: location, location, and location. The same is true when it comes to getting started with building a new commercial building. Where an entrepreneur decides to build will not only affect their bottom line but also the laws and requirements of their new building. Below are some of the key legal items to consider when deciding on a location to build your business:
Zoning: In order to build a business, the given property must be zoned for commercial construction. This may seem obvious but it also carries important implications for a business’s plumbing and electrical, parking, and the types of activities it can do on the property.

Building Codes: These are enforced to ensure that businesses are safe for the employees and customers who work and shop there. Depending on the type of business and its location, these codes can vary dramatically. It’s best to work with a construction lawyer and reputable contractor to ensure your business meets all building codes.
