Office buildings are designed for commercial occupancies and may be subdivided into smaller units for tenant use. Office buildings may be constructed for a particular use such as medical office. Medical office buildings are typically designed for medical and/or dental services with examination and outpatient rooms, as opposed to general office buildings. The interior finish may have plaster or drywall and, depending on the quality, utilize glass and special wall covering.
Floor finishes are typically carpet, terrazzo or vinyl. Ceiling finishes vary with the quality. Luminous ceilings and high-intensity, fluorescent lighting are found in the better qualities. Medical office space may include high-intensity, fluorescent lighting with better qualities and also may have x-ray capabilities, lead-lined walls, soundproof exam rooms and a high degree of built-in cabinetry, sinks and plumbing.
In the restrooms, both the number and quality of fixtures generally correspond to the quality of the building. Typically, floor finishes in the restroom areas are ceramic tile. At all quality levels, metal partitions and commercial plumbing fixtures can be found.
Most offices have a combined heating and cooling system, while the lower-cost structures have heating only.
