How to manage office fit out costs
Moving office is a big investment for any company on a number of levels and managing the office relocation process yourself can be a painstaking task. Not only do you have to ensure everything is completed in its due time, and to the right specification, there’s also the task of managing your agreed budget through the process. You may well need to consider who takes this responsibility on as your Project Leader to ensure that the costs agreed under the signed contract do not escalate through the fit out process and beyond your set budget.
An independent Project Manager will take full responsibility from inception to completion, reporting directly to you and putting you in control of cost.
Jeanette Grover, Project Director at Rapport Solutions Ltd explains how they manage the process for their clients. “Rapport Solutions have managed office fit out budgets ranging in project value from £50,000 to £1.4 Million. With over 20 years’ experience in the office fit-out industry we cut through the market jargon, minimise our clients risk and control costs. We are appointed under fixed fee contracts and are not tied to any contractor, supplier or sub-contractor organisation”
A recent example of their project work was on behalf of UK Broadband Ltd. They were appointed to relocate UK Broadband from three sites into 20,000 sq. ft. at International House, Ealing managing a contract value in excess of £1 million which included bespoke veneered furniture and next generation IT technology equipment. The project was delivered on time and under the original budget.
UK Broadbands CFO Cedric Astor commented: ‘Quite simply we couldn’t have achieved this within the budget and timescale parameters without the expertise of Jeanette Grover and the team at Rapport Solutions who provided constant support every inch of the way’
