The Role of an Office Fit-Out Company
If your company is planning an office move, you are likely to require some input from an office fit-out company about the design and layout of your new space. Regardless of the size of your business, and the type of office space you use, enlisting the support of a fit-out company will help make the most of your new space in terms of space, design and functionality. If you’re still not convinced, we’ve outlined some of the responsibilities of an office fit-out company, and highlighted some of the benefits they can offer your business when moving into new space.
A workplace appraisal involves a full review of your existing space to evaluate how you use the space; what parts are working best, and what areas need attention. This helps on many levels; it enables you to fully assess your requirements in the new space, and also provides a more accurate idea of how many square feet you will need to satisfy headcount and the facilities that are important to your business.
Viewing potential properties
Once you have shortlisted a few buildings that you are potentially interested in, it’s a good idea to ask your office fit-out company to tour round each office with you. They will be able to identify areas that need work, and offer invaluable advice about which space configuration and building style will best suit your business requirements.
Once you have secured the space and signed the lease, the fit-out works begins so that the space can be customised to your requirements. This may involve the installation of raised flooring and lighting (if not already there), and also the installation of IT cabling and infrastructure. You may also require the installation of partitioning for any meeting rooms or private offices.
The design stage incorporates the overall look and feel of the environment. Your office fit-out company will advise on a suitable colour scheme, and add those important finishing touches to your reception area, meeting rooms and feature walls.
