How to achieve the perfect office fit out

Planning a new office design, whether that’s a relocation to a new space or a complete fit-out of your existing building, is a huge job – you need to find the right location, agree the designs, hire the contractors, and we could go on.

To ensure a totally smooth process for you and your business, we’ve dedicated this blog to showing you a step by step guide on how to achieve the perfect office fit out.

Location, Location, Location

First of all, you have to find a space that suits you and your employees’ needs.

A key factor to achieving the perfect office fit-out is making sure that your staff are happy with the location and building – after all, a happy workforce is a productive workforce.

Should you move to a new space? Would an open-plan design make for a more collaborative environment? Will there be enough natural lighting?

Finding the right space is crucial, as people want to work somewhere they feel proud of. The important thing to remember is, regardless of furniture and fit out, if your space doesn’t suit your business and your employees, morale could quickly drop… so it’s definitely something to think about when starting your fit out.

Choosing the right design

Many interior design trends come and go with the wind, but your business is here to stay, so it’s your job to choose an interior that’s going to stand the test of time and become an effortless office design.

With so many styles to choose from it can be confusing knowing what look is best for you. Whether that’s a contemporary industrial fit with exposed bricks, or a modern glass style with an open view of the whole office, it’s up to you – but one thing many people forget to consider is the practicality of your office design.

Prioritising a stylish office can sometimes mean practicality goes out the window, making everybody’s job that little bit harder – people won’t thank you for having to walk down two sets of stairs just to find the kitchen – so always take functionality into consideration when trying to achieve the perfect office fit-out and design.

Let the work commence

It’s time to hire the contractors. Now that you’ve planned your new office design with your design team, it’s time to get the ball rolling and let the actual work commence.

But now comes the tricky part – you’ll need to hire the engineers, fit-out teams, plumbers, project managers and many more specialists to achieve your perfect office, and this may take some time.

Finding the right crew for your job, at a budget you can agree on, with minimal disruption to your business as possible, can cause many offices much stress.
