What is a tenant improvement?

When a new business moves into an existing commercial or industrial tenant space, tenant improvements are the proposed interior alterations or additions (both structural and nonstructural). This applies to new buildings after completion of the shell construction or when an existing business changes or modifies its use and/or expands within an existing building.
