building standard

building standard

A particular style and quality of building materials, finishes, and accessories used in a specific commercial building.Office leases will generally include a construction allowance or build-out allowance to complete space according to a tenant's space design and using building standard materials.If the tenant desires a better quality,the tenant may usually pay for the difference in cost and obtain it.The phrase also comes into play in circumstances when the landlord has agreed to be responsible for replacing all building standard lightbulbs in the leased space.If building standard is fluorescent,and the tenant has incandescent bulbs in spaces such as conference rooms,then the tenant will have to pay for replacement of those bulbs.This can be a significant expense.
