A thoughtfully designed interior can impact our mood, productivity and even our relationships by fostering an atmosphere that resonates with our needs and preferences.

Office Remodeling

Building owners must be flexible with their expectations, budgets and design choices when remodeling their structure, especially with the current standing of the economy. Intermittent supply chain issues are still a factor as is the increased cost of labor and materials. The changing availability of materials coupled with the tight labor market means costs can be unpredictable, which extends project durations and increases budgets. Before starting a remodeling project, it is in your best interest to ask lots of questions and plan for the unexpected.

By having alternative options ready to go for clients, who must also be able to make decisions quickly to eliminate any potential impact to their budget and schedule, AOI ( is able to provide cost assurance, speed and schedule reliability.

Residential and Commercial Repurposing

Repurposing space in your home is a great way to optimize your living space. For instance, converting an underused bedroom or nook into a home office allows for increased productivity and focus, especially in today’s remote work era. Alternatively, transforming an entryway into a mudroom not only keeps clutter at bay but also adds an organized and welcoming touch to your home. Utilizing the often-neglected space under the stairs for storage or a cozy reading corner adds both functionality and charm. Combining a guest room and playroom is an ingenious way to maximize limited space, offering flexibility for both guests and family. Lastly, finishing and repurposing an attic or basement can unlock entirely new realms of living space, whether as a home gym, entertainment hub or additional storage.

With so many unique ways to repurpose space, Pitzl Contracting is helping homeowners and business owners alike get the most out of their remodeling.
