It is important that any company planning an office relocation or refurbishment chooses the right fit-out partner
Unbelievably as much as 60% of the cost of your fit-out project will be taken up on the technical elements, ranging from mechanical services, such as air-conditioning, ventilation and plumbing, through to IT, data cabling, lighting and electrics.
It’s therefore vital to the smooth running of your fit-out that these elements are properly analysed, designed, specified and thoroughly understood. This can only really be achieved if your fit-out partner retains these skills in-house.
This will help to maximise efficiency, particularly in the early stages of the fit-out project, when the prospective buildings are being assessed and the project programme is being established.
Incorrect technical assessments inevitably lead to inaccurate cost and timescale forecasts and could ultimately result in the selection of an inappropriate building.
Many fit-out companies will cobble together an “in-house” team made up of a mixture of sub-contractors, suppliers and inexperienced team members. Sometimes it can work on smaller projects, but usually it will end in tears, particularly if there are areas of disagreement as the project progresses.
The true benefit of appointing an experienced and turnkey fit-out partner comes from maximising the relationships within the project team. An in-house team that has worked together many times undertaking fit-outs before will communicate more efficiently between themselves and more coherently with you.
Fundamentally the chances of completing on programme and within budget will be maximised.
