Lease Construction & Compliance

The OGS Bureau of Lease Construction & Compliance manages, supervises and coordinates the design, construction and inspections of all statewide projects that are either new build-outs or renovations. OGS works in close consultation with our tenants to administer the construction of office space in leased locations and serves as the tenant's liaison during construction and tenancy. Specifics include:

  • Reviewing space plans for construction issues to ensure that the construction materials and workmanship are consistent with industry standards and practices;
  • Working with landlords to develop tenant work letters;
  • Monitoring work schedules to ensure that work is completed on schedule, within budget, and in compliance with lease requirements; and
  • Ensuring that the landlord complies with the terms of the lease throughout the period of the lease.
