Construction Dictionary: Shell Building

We’re sometimes asked, “what’s a shell building?” This term is often used when referring to new office buildings and shopping centers in which site work and a building exterior have been constructed, but the interior is left unfinished in order for future tenants to design their space to accommodate their business needs. Once the space is leased, a plan designer is then hired who will lay out the addition of walls, fixtures, flooring, plumbing, etc., within the shell building, based on specific tenant needs. These photos show a few examples of recent shell buildings HMD has built for future office and retail leasing opportunities.

If you have a term you’d like explained, please ask – We’ll be glad to share our knowledge!
