Are you thinking of relocating your business or are you looking to improve the office space you already have?
It’s all in the planning. If you’re considering an office-fit out or refurbishment follow these simple steps and turn what could be a stressful journey into an exciting prospect.
Firstly consider the immediate reasons for the project. Is it a relocation, to increase office space, to modernise office facilities? But also consider the future needs of your business. What are your growth plans and how does this impact on your staff numbers. Will increased growth mean you have to relocate your office?
Budgeting is the next hurdle and depending on the size of your project this could be a sizeable chunk of your business expenditure so it’s important that you clear on where your budget will be going. As a rough guide expect to pay up to £1000 per head for a basic fit out, up to £1750 per head for mid range and up to £2500 per head for a high end fit out. If you’re considering new office furniture this will need to be added to the costs. Ozone can advise you on the various furniture ranges available.
What should you expect from the office fit-out company you engage? Ozone will carry out a survey to assess every aspect of your fit-out including all electrical and mechanical works. An office space designer will initially create block plans then mood boards and on larger projects, CGI visuals. A full program of works will be presented to you along with transparent costings.
