The start of a new year is often the time for a refresh, an ideal time to start a clean slate with a brand-new office fit-out. But overseeing a fit-out project big or small can be a stressful and sometimes daunting task. In this post we are outlining some of our top tips for ensuring a smooth running and successful project:
- Allocate A Budget
Initially you may have no idea how much an office fit-out is going to cost! But don’t worry, arriving at a budget figure can be done with some careful planning and research. You will need to ensure that your budget incorporates each individual aspect of the project. Shopping around to determine the best prices for each product or service will help you decide how much need to set aside.
Alternatively, if you already have a rough idea of the amount of money you are comfortable spending, let our team know, we can produce a turn-key solution within budget.
Remember a budget should always be realistic, help restrict overspending but also allow for any unexpected costs.
- Set A Timeline
There’s no such thing as being too organised when it comes to planning a fit-out project! Ensure that you are aware of how long each process will take and draw up a timeline accordingly. Of course, you cannot account for everything and sometimes small setbacks are inevitable, however following a plan will help you to manage any stumbling blocks and control expectations.
