Undertaking an office fit-out is a major decision for your company and should not be considered lightly.

Consequently, this calls for experienced designers that can deliver your project to the deadline, budget and quality criteria. It is vital to choose a company that you can trust to champion your project through to completion without running into hidden costs or legal obstacles. Our qualified industry leading experts will work with you to ensure you are always up to date at each step, leaving you feeling secure in the knowledge that your office interior fit-out project is in professional hands.

Planning your office fit-out is the foundation for delivering a successful project. We must first accurately interpret the design of your office, define clear expectations and goals for your business, and communicate a clear step by step direction of the office fit-out strategy. Once we’ve assessed your business needs you can sit back and let us take care of everything from initial sketches to the final details, and everything in between. Once we have completed your commercial fit-out project, we continue to support you by evaluating the performance of your workplace. This is to ensure that your new office is working at optimum capacity and that your workforce is satisfied with the changes.

Our Approach to Office Fit-out

  1. Understanding the Objectives
    Before starting an office fitout project it is important to capture the aspirations of your business through an outline brief. We will identify the drivers for the project, which could range from creating a more efficient workplace and rationalising space usage, to enabling a higher level of occupancy.
  2. The Design Journey
    At Office Principles we believe in taking each step of the fit-out journey with you, from concept right through to completion. Our designers will produce first stage sketches, revise the designs, and once you are happy with the concept drawing we can then begin creating a 3D visualisation of your workplace.
  3. Office Furniture
    The office furniture is an important part of the office fit-out. We always recommend that you try out any furniture before you commit to buying it ensuring that it is comfortable, fits your design scheme and budget and suits all your other requirements, including any space limitations or access issues.
  4. Construction and Delivery
    Constructing an excellent office fit-out is no easy task, but Office Principles has a great quality management track record and can ensure a smooth office fit-out process from start to finish. Our dedicated project managers will be able to appoint contractors as well as oversee health and safety of all members involved. Great communication is needed in every project, which is why we share the whole ethos with our teams to ensure everyone understands the final result of the project and the journey in getting there.
  5. Process Control
    The Office Principles fit-out process demands a single point of responsibility. Our construction managers are highly experienced in this role and co-ordinate and manage every aspect of the design and construction process at the same time, which means that we don’t have to wait for one contractor to finish before the next step can begin.
  6. Continual Optimisation
    Workplace optimisation is a continual process, and is an important part of the office fit-out journey. It needs constant nurture and guidance in order to produce the best results. Our experienced consultants will help to devise a continuous optimisation plan for your workplace. In doing so we will be able to pre-emptively remove obstacles that may hinder the evolution of your company.
