July 22, 2020–Recently this month, Denver’s mayor held a press conference to inform the city’s businesses that there will be a pause on variances because of the 79% increase in COVID-19 cases throughout the city. The variances allowed many types of businesses–particularly those in the hospitality sector–to request and receive allowances to raise their occupancy limits, expand their business outdoors, and to take advantage of some other exceptions providing they continue to adhere to other mandates such as mask-wearing. Rather than reopening amid the risks and restrictions, many businesses across the country are choosing to use this downtime to invest in their business’s improvement.
Benefits of Pandemic Renovations
In major cities across the countries, businesses such as bars, restaurants, casinos, and hotels are making a wide range of renovation and remodeling improvements. Businesses that routinely enjoy a little downtime and have many customers coming and going are choosing to use the lockdown period as an ideal time to make changes to their businesses. For instance, businesses in Denver are making renovations that include:
- Roof replacement
- Carpeting removal and installation
- Refinishing flooring
- Installing outdoor patio with overhead structures
- Gutter repairs
- New additions
- Changes in floor plans
- Fresh paint
Additionally, businesses are scouring their settings after the renovation period in order to be ready to re-open when the restrictions soften.
Of course, with little to no income coming in for many businesses in the region, some business owners may be hesitant about investing in some types of renovations–like cosmetic changes for instance. However, the impetus to re-open even with reduced occupancy mandates is great.
