When starting a new office design, fit out and refurbishment project the importance of choosing the right supplier cannot be underestimated.
Whether your office design and fit out project is small or much more extensive always consider the following key issues before selecting your preferred supplier / partner.
Below are our office design and fit out tips on how to choose your office refurbishment partner.
Office design and fit out “trade specialist” or “complete solution”.
The size and type of office design anf fit out you are planning will influence the company you choose. Small projects may be best undertaken by a specialist in a particular area such as flooring, partitions or office furniture. Most office refurbishments involve a range of trades and expertise covering aspects such as building, plumbing, data and electrics, flooring, furniture & storage, design & space planning.
Such a project is best served by employing a supplier that can give a ‘complete solution’ – providing all the support you need for a project.
Experience of office refurbishments
A company that has an excellent track record in designing and refurbishing offices is essential when undertaking a major project.
Review the projects they have worked on, you will normally find these on their website or simply ask them to give you some case studies and examples of their work.
If dealing with one company providing a complete solution then it is also worth asking for examples where they have project managed a refurbishment using multiple trades on site.
Reviews and client feedback
Ask for existing clients contact details, give them a call and ask them about the whole experience.
Look for a supplier who you can build a relationship with.
It is essential that you work with a supplier with which you can communicate easily, build an effective working relationship and trust to deliver. The quote and tender process is an excellent way to get to know how they work, listen to you and communicate.
Space planning and design
Ensure that the company you choose can provide 3D space planning and design services which give you the perfect opportunity to see how your new refurbished premises will look when completed.
