3 tips for a stress-free office fit out
19th March 2018Back
Many business owners put off an office fit out for longer than it is due because of the fear of the disruption it could cause. However, an office fit out doesn’t need to be a stressful or even overly disruptive process if planned correctly; here are our top 3 tips for making your office fit out as smooth as possible.
Evaluate what you need
Preparing for a new office fit out is the perfect opportunity to take a long hard look at your office and decide what it is that you’ll need in your new office and what is missing now. Is it extremely cluttered? Then it’s likely you’ll require more office storage systems or storage walls. Is it a very loud working environment that makes concentration difficult? Then glass partitions can give your office an open plan feel alongside added privacy and improved acoustics.
Plan your timeframe
Whilst office fit outs are not necessarily as disruptive as you may think, it’s also not exactly wise to schedule a refurbishment for the busiest period in your working year. It is therefore important to plan the best dates for your business and the time frame you have available for an office fit out, discussing these with the professional fit out company you have chosen for the job, such as ourselves.
Setting out clear deadlines and expectations early on will save you a potential headache later; we pride ourselves on understanding the individual needs of all our clients, including their space availability and time frame allocated for work to be carried out.
Know your budget
Make sure that you know the budget you have available for your office fit out before making any concrete plans. Discuss all costs with your chosen fit out company and run the numbers past your accountant to ensure that everything is correct. Whilst an office fit out is an expense, it is infrequent and can have huge benefits for your business, not just by improving aesthetics and the overall look of your brand, but in improving the mood and productivity of your workforce.
