Office Refurbishment Checklist

The refurbishment of your office is likely to be one of the biggest expenses in the history of your business. So it’s vital to get it right first time.

If you’ve been tasked with creating a brand new space for your company, you’re probably wondering where to start. And if that’s not enough, it’s pretty daunting knowing it’ll all take place under the watchful gaze of your company’s board of directors and all of your colleagues.

But by taking it step by step, and breaking everything down into easily manageable stages, your project will run smoothly and will be an enjoyable process.

Think about WHY you are refurbishing

Identifying the reasons for refurbishing your office space is critical in ensuring that the finished result meets all of your company's needs. For instance, if you're running out of storage space, then designing an office with insufficient storage capacity is the last thing you want to do.

If you think about the 'why' early on, you're well prepared to identify the 'what' when you come to writing up your brief and discussing your new space with your chosen office refurbishment partner.

Refurbishment tip

Think about how your business is likely to change over the next 5 years and plan for that now. Whilst your workplace needs to reflect your current business values it must be able to adapt to any future changes that might be around the corner.
