Looking Into Office Fit-Out?
Your office space is important, not only does it help in creating a work-life culture that reflects your values but refurbishing it can often have a huge impact on your employees and their engagement.
Looking into modern day office culture, we are starting to see more and more companies move away from traditional office decor practice. We no longer see bland designs where every space is right-angled with private cubicles using basic wood and colours that don’t entice. Instead, we see companies embedding their values through the design of their environment, implementing a workspace that has a positive impact on employee productivity and culture as much as it does for the business’ profitability.
Due to this, it’s important to find the right office fit out partner who can deliver on your vision and work with you to create the best possible working space.
Key Things to Consider
Investing in the redesign and refurbishment of your office is a huge deal, so there are several things you should consider when choosing an office fit out partner.
The first thing is to define your requirements. Decide what you feel as if you will need from your office space. Will it promote collaboration amongst colleagues? Do you want to create separate sections for various functions of the business? Will these differ? If so, how? Before approaching any possible companies regarding your new venture, it’s important that you first define what it is you need and have a rough idea of what you’re expecting.
The next step is to look into the reputation of the brand. Often brands will have testimonials or case studies on past clients for you to delve into. These are important as you can see if they are going to match the style of ideas that you are going for and if their work is up to scratch. Take note of the scale of the businesses they’ve done as well as sectors that they prefer to work with. Are they part of any recognised organisations? Do they work all over the UK? Think of the more credential side of it too, do they have ISO certifications? Verifiable health and safety policies?
A huge aspect to look into is the financial considerations as these can differ from company to company. It’s very important that you hire a company to undergo the refurbishment that has the financial stability to do so, making sure their capability aligns with your budget for the work is crucial so having this conversation is key. Ask them whether they can guarantee to stick within budget without you acquiring any additional costs? Do they have the appropriate financial backing to enable them to complete the project?
Finally, ensure you know a full list of what’s included. It’s highly necessary with a project as big a office refurbishment that you know exactly what you’re getting for your money, this will help you decide which company is of the best value for money for exactly what you need. Do they offer all of the common services? Do they provide any added extras? What makes them different from their competitors? All of these things are important in your considerations.
