How to Choose the Right Fit-Out Company

For well over two decades, we’ve seen what the best fit-out partners look like – and the worst. Let’s face it, choosing the right team for your office refurbishment is instrumental to its success.

Aside from guiding you through every step of the way, your fit out specialist must also ensure the project completes on time and to budget.

Where do you start? How do you whittle down a selection of London suppliers to just one? Here’s a useful checklist, including key factors to watch out for:

  • Do your homework

Check out the supplier’s credentials. What’s their track record? Does their website showcase client success stories? Who are their past and present clients? Why not get independent references from several?

Equally, reputable fit out firms will be only too pleased if you ask to speak to previous clients for an unbiased perspective of their capabilities. Decent companies have nothing to hide…

  • Check expertise

Whichever fit-out partner you choose, make sure they can offer you a comprehensive turnkey service, covering all aspects of your office refurb.

Reliable fit-out companies should have a team of specialists in-house – from leading architects and interior designers to project managers and technicians.

Check: are they at the forefront of the latest technical innovations? What’s their knowledge of the latest developments in office design?

A firm’s expertise can help you make all the right decisions – plus help you spend wisely. Not to mention provide expert advice on how to improve staff wellbeing and productivity.

  • On top of money matters

Budget savvy companies are always upfront about costs right from the start. The last thing a trustworthy firm would do is allow unforeseen costs and fees to creep into a project later down the line.

Ask about previous projects they’ve managed. Ask how they calculate their full budget costing. Ask about fixed budgets.

Don’t forget to investigate the firm’s own financial viability. Do they have a strong financial footing?

Ask too about due diligence surveys, plus specialist insurance. Does your contractor have the required level of insurances to cover your project value?
