Revitalize your retail space with Omnia Pacific’s Turnkey Solutions

Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

Rubio’s Coastal Grill, one of California’s most beloved fast-food chains, recently announced the closure of 48 “underperforming” locations, citing the “rising cost of doing business.” This decision has left many fish taco enthusiasts disappointed and has posed significant challenges for commercial retail property owners, especially in the Los Angeles area (losing 24 locations), San Diego (losing 13 locations), and Northern California (losing 11 locations).

This unfortunate scenario reflects a broader trend in the turbulent commercial real estate landscape. Rising costs, economic fluctuations, and legislative changes, such as the recently passed California Assembly Bill 1228, which raised the minimum wage for fast-food workers to $20 per hour, have created precarious situations for property owners. These factors make it increasingly difficult to maintain occupancy and attract new, high-quality tenants.

We expertly patch walls and ensure that the space is in pristine, lease-ready condition.

Vacancy Cleanup

A clean and well-maintained property is crucial for attracting new tenants. Our Vacancy Cleanup service includes thorough sweeping, mopping, sanitizing restrooms, and window washing.

Exterior Storefront Activation

First impressions matter. Our Exterior Storefront Activation service is designed to attract attention and drive foot traffic to your vacant property. We enhance your storefront by smoking out windows and installing eye-catching adhesive window graphics. These visual enhancements quickly draw the interest of potential tenants and customers, making your space more appealing and increasing the likelihood of a quick lease.

Facia Sign Removal

A clean and modern exterior is essential for making your property attractive to new tenants. Our Facia Sign Removal service efficiently removes sign cans and seamlessly patches and paints the facia. This service gives your property a fresh, updated look, enhancing its curb appeal and making it more attractive to potential tenants.

        Putting out the flames: How Omnia Pacific extinguishes e-bike battery fires before they start

        Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

        The last several years have seen a major uptick in the popularity of e-bikes and e-scooters across the country, including right here in Southern California. In 2022, around 1.1 million e-bikes were imported to the U.S., an increase from 880,000 in 2021 and 450,000 in 2020, according to the industry trade group LEVA (Light Electric Vehicle Association).

        In rental property sphere, many environmentally conscious tenants and customers have embraced e-bikes and e-scooters for their transportation needs. By providing amenities that cater to these preferences, property owners can better attract and retain this clientele, effectively securing their loyalty over competitors. This approach isn’t just good for business practices — it also aligns with the sustainable ethos embraced by the modern renter.

        But even as battery-powered vehicles continue to fill our streets and boardwalks, safety concerns over the lithium-ion batteries that power them have emerged. Over the past few years, fires caused by e-bike lithium-ion batteries have skyrocketed, resulting in deaths, injuries, and property destruction. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission received reports of at least 208 micro-mobility fire or overheating incidents between January 2021 and November 2022 alone.

        These fires often occur when e-bikes have been left charging overnight, leaving them overheated, defective, and damaged. Lithium-ion batteries contain a chemical solution that is both dense and extremely flammable. As a result, battery fires are fast-moving and spread rapidly, and it’s even possible for the chemicals to reignite even after the fire has been extinguished.

        Industry groups such as the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), are advocating for more regulation around e-bikes and scooters. Omnia Pacific is committed to educating building owners and property managers about the potential dangers posed by e-bike batteries and how our Construction Pros can help prevent them.

        Our experts can reconfigure your space to facilitate socialization on time and on budget.
        Our on-site professionals will put your workers at ease with regular cleaning and responsive service.

        Retrofitting your property

        Fire safety begins with ensuring your building can prevent the spread of fire. Omnia Pacific does just that by:

        • Encapsulating existing bike storage space with cinder block
        • Install e-charging hook-ups for e-bikes and e-scooters
        • Retrofitting all fire suppression systems to ensure the building is fully compliant with all fire safety codes and regulations.

        Building a safe storage space

        Omnia Pacific creates custom-built e-bike storage areas that prioritize safety and security by:

        • Utilizing fire-resistant materials such as concrete, steel and brick to ensure your e-bike storage area is well-equipped to handle any potential fire outbreak.
        • Installing top-of-the-line fire suppression systems, including fire sprinklers and smoke detectors, to provide an added layer of protection.
        • Allowing for proper ventilation to prevent the accumulation of combustible materials that can contribute to the spread of fire.

        Offering amenities tailored to environmentally aware tenants and customers enables property owners to enhance client retention and growth. With Omnia Pacific, you can trust that your e-bike storage area is not only a secure and convenient, but also safe to users and the community.

              Staying Ahead of ‘The Great Relocation’

              Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

              As the world continues to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic, many commercial building owners and shopping center managers are feeling optimistic for a return to pre-pandemic conditions. And with that expectation comes an emerging trend in which tenants are seeking out new locations that offer superior leases and amenities.

              We call it, “The Great Relocation.”

              After successfully weathering a global pandemic, now is not the time to get left behind. Restoring your property to its pre-COVID shine should be of utmost importance in order to retain your current tenants and gain new ones.

              Luckily for you, Omnia Pacific Construction is here to help. Our property experts perform an array of critical services that can help bring your building back to life without breaking the bank. From making a strong first impression with superior outdoor maintenance to keeping your interiors looking as good as new, Omnia has you covered.

              EXTERIOR SERVICES

              People make first impressions, and so do places. This is why properly maintaining the exterior of your building is so critical. Visitors form an impression long before they step inside. Is it clean? Is there paint chipping away? Is the landscaping up to date? Is the parking lot well lit? Are there potholes?

              All these elements should be considered before introducing a potential new tenant to your property.

              Cigarette butts, glass, trash bags, and other debris aren’t just eye sores — they’re hazards that can cost you a tenant in the long run. Omnia can help prevent this from becoming an issue with our parking lot sweeping services. We don’t just make your parking lot feel safer, we’ll make it more appealing. Additionally, Omnia can haul illegal dumping from your property.

              Other headaches like damaged facia from sign removal, old signage, vandalism, and neglected landscaping can further damage your property’s image and value. Omnia’s experienced team can handle these problems and others. From using nutrient-rich mulch in landscaping to repairing damaged areas surrounding the building, we’ll have your property looking its best in no time.

              INTERIOR SERVICES

              Once potential tenants are inside, the real sales pitch begins. Having a clean space to showcase can make or break a deal. Omnia can help smooth the transition from one tenant to the next through our vacancy prep services. These services include cleaning the interior and exterior of your vacancy, shelling out the space, and smoking out the windows to effectively showcase your property.

              After a new tenant has signed on, keeping them happy is paramount. An attentive area manager can do just that. Omnia’s experts have a keen eye for floor care, maintenance, and handyman services. Both tenants and customers will feel at ease knowing that your property is well maintained and monitored.

              Getting your property back to pre-pandemic levels can feel like a major challenge. With help from Omnia, you can make your property appeal to new tenants while retaining your current ones. From maintaining your parking lot to keeping your interiors looking as good as new, Omnia is your property management partner.

                Is Your Building Ready For the Wave of EVs?

                Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

                You may have noticed a change in the air and on the road. The new wave of electric vehicles is coming.

                President Joe Biden recently signed an executive order mandating that 50 percent of all new vehicles sold in 2030 (just eight short years from now) qualify as zero-emission vehicles. The legislation is a part of a global push for countries to become more eco-friendly. It’s also a telltale sign of where trends are headed in the U.S. auto market.

                The question then becomes, is your company equipped to handle the influx of electric vehicles on the horizon? While it may feel daunting, the coming wave should be viewed as an opportunity.

                That’s because you have a partner in Omnia Pacific Construction — Southern California’s leader in property maintenance services. We can help outfit your property with electric vehicle charging stations, to make it an eco-friendlier place of business, and more attractive to employees and clients, while driving revenue up.

                Still not convinced? Here are three ways Omnia Pacific Construction can help:

                Preparing income tax return

                First-mover advantage plus incentive programs

                As an early adopter of electric vehicle charging stations, you can take advantage of several incentive programs. For example, with Southern California Edison’s Charge Ready program, companies can receive rebates of up to $2,900 per connector depending on the location of your property.

                find electric charging stations

                Installing an EV charging station introduces you to new customers

                Another reason your company should invest in an electric vehicle charging station is that it will help put your business on the map, so to speak. Both Google and Apple have functions in their map applications that allow users to look up the nearest electric charging station. While charging their vehicle, owners will be looking for somewhere to shop, and your business will be on the top of their list.

                It helps your company become more eco-friendly

                Finally, installing an electric vehicle charging station helps your company’s eco-friendly image. Electric vehicles are a massive part of the current wave of sustainability, and by installing an electric vehicle charging station, you show that your business cares about doing its part for the planet. That eco-friendly image also helps your business. According to Forbes, 87 percent of consumers will have a more positive image of a company that supports social or environmental issues, and 88 percent will be more loyal to a company that supports social or environmental issues.

                charging electric vehicle

                Ultimately there are a plethora of reasons to consider installing an electric vehicle charging station, but there’s only one company you can trust to do it right: Omnia Pacific Construction. Call (800) 576-3050 to find out how we can help you get ahead of the electric vehicle wave.

                  Redesigning Your Office For ‘The New Normal’

                  Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

                  As the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are finding it challenging to entice employees to return to the workplace. In what has been called “The Great Resignation,” waves of workers are leaving their jobs at record levels, and the requirement to return to the office full-time is playing a big part in that movement.

                  According to a recent poll by McKinsey, a global management consulting company, 30 percent of respondents said they would consider quitting if forced to return to full-time, on-site employment, and about half of those who left their jobs cited a lack of a positive work-life balance as a primary reason. Faced with the challenges of this “new normal,” many employers are seeking to reach a middle ground, utilizing a hybrid model in which workers are on site or in office only a few days a week.

                  Businesses who find themselves in a similar predicament — welcoming employees back in a hybrid capacity — should take this opportunity to reassess how the workspace fulfills their current needs. Fortunately, Omnia Pacific Construction can help you navigate this “new normal.”

                  Redesign Your Workplace

                  Under this new hybrid model, only a fraction of the workforce is in the office at any given time. Due to that, businesses are needing 40 to 50 percent less space than before the pandemic. As the workplace shrinks, the need to remodel and reimagine existing space comes into play. Omnia can connect you to specialties to navigate these obstacles — from planning and design to general construction and ADA remediation, we can help revitalize your space for “the new normal.”

                  Our experts can reconfigure your space to facilitate socialization on time and on budget.

                  Companies that improved overall performance during the pandemic relied on small, cross-functional, and cross-silo teams that worked with an in-person dimension. These teams brought with them a strong sense of socialization, something that has been missing in the remote work world. Taking a strategic approach to redesigning your office space in order to facilitate better collaboration, teamwork and socialization can help better maximize your company’s performance.

                    Industrial Trash Chute Installation

                    Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

                    When it comes to managing trash collection at a facility, good logistics can make a huge difference. Small problems compound easily when taken to a large scale at places such as a multifamily apartment, high-rise office, hotel, or sports stadium. Trash chutes can make a big impact on many levels. They can improve facility cleanliness, air quality, labor costs, and even workplace safety.

                    Multifamily residences are unique in this category as tenants of all ages are most likely to be accessing the trash chute door. Safety is a top priority. The first step is to make sure that the trash chute was professionally installed. Facility managers should also regularly schedule crews to clean and maintain trash chute equipment properly to prevent injury or harm to users, as well as financial liability.

                    There are regulations that require proper inspection and maintenance of trash chute systems for a variety of health and safety reasons. Although concern is far more than a fire safety issue, the main authority is NFPA 82 (National Fire Protection Association). Local laws may have regional variances, so be sure to check. A reputable commercial contractor should be familiar with related building codes and annual inspection requirements.

                    Another code consideration is that the installation complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). There are requirements about aspects such as accessibility, door handle hardware, height, and enclosure space. Chutes not in compliance may require retrofitting or stiff penalties may be assessed. A CASp inspector can help identify and avoid these costly problems.

                    Industrial trash chutes face the same regulations, although they are typically confined to “employees only” areas accessed by professional cleaning staff. Places like office buildings, commercial complexes, hotels, and assisted senior living facilities often have trash chutes for hauling away large volumes of garbage quickly and easily.

                    Hauling trash indoors in this manner can minimize odors in common areas, hallways, elevators, and stairwells. It can also prevent slips from leakage and other employee injuries from hauling trash.

                    These industrial chutes are typically installed during initial building construction, however, there are methods for installation in existing buildings. Experienced and licensed construction companies can provide more detailed information.

                    Keep in mind that many large construction companies shy away from this type of work, so a reputable, specialist construction company may be the ideal partner.

                    A sports stadium is well suited for trash chute system installation. Volumes of baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and hockey fans generate tons of trash at each sporting event. Their unique building structure allows for trash chute installations before, during, and after primary construction.

                    Trash chutes often deposit trash directly into lower-level dumpsters or trash compactors. This convenience can save time and labor costs. It also reduces the number of times trash is handled directly, in a time when cleanliness is at the forefront.

                    While this can be convenient it also poses a problem. Combustibles and other hazardous materials commonly cause fires in trash areas. To prevent the quick spread of fire through these conduits, fire safety closures must be properly installed at the end of the chute. Upper-level access doors must also be fire-rated.

                    Chutes are either rectangular or round. The shape may be determined by construction constraints or the manufacturer’s equipment. However, when presented with the option, one should consider the benefits of a round trash chute. Much like the infamous query “Why are manhole covers round?” – a round chute is more likely to prevent oversized items from becoming wedged as they cannot be rotated for a different fit as rectangular chutes allow.

                    Modern trash chutes may also come with extra features. Deceleration tracks and noise dampeners are common. Built-in cleaning systems are also prevalent, dispersing cleaning agents and sprays to help alleviate internal grime and odors. However, cleaning personnel may still be required for more extensive power washing and external hardware.

                    If you are considering the benefits of installing a trash chute or need professional maintenance on existing equipment, the best resource for referrals may be your janitorial or facility maintenance crew. They are likely to already offer those services or work in conjunction with those who do. For installation try specialist commercial construction companies that are familiar with industrial buildings and local codes.

                    Commercial trash chutes are more than a useful convenience, they can provide significant savings on labor and accident costs. Larger commercial facilities should consider the installation and regular maintenance of trash chute systems to improve the health and safety of those around.
