Office Build Out Checklist
An effective Office Build Out transforms an empty, dull space into a productive and inspiring working environment. It utilizes the space to make it as efficient as possible, while creating that unique look to promote your corporate identity. But how does the build out process work and what issues do you need to consider in order for the delivery to go smoothly?
This Office Build Out Checklist highlights important considerations to ensure the delivery of your office build out goes according to plan:
Set an Office Build Out Budget
Within your overall office relocation budget, you should set aside a cost for the office build out. The extent of this, will of course, depend on the space you choose and the modifications required.
Agree the Timelines
Once you know your proposed moving date, you can start to agree a timeline for the commencement of the office build out project. Use the Moving Office Timeline to help set your office build out schedule and ensure your office move stays on track.
Appoint an Office Design Team
An Office Design Team will comprise a space planner, interior designer, architect and general contractor that collaboratively will establish project goals, carry out the office build out project, and ensure the project is delivered on schedule and within budget.
Office Build Out Project
It is impossible to describe what a typical office build out looks like - since each build out is tailored to the needs of the client and space requirements. Determine what improvements needs to be made to the space; in some cases it may require knocking down of walls, whilst others may just require installation of new flooring, lighting and IT infrastructure.
After Care Support
Once you're settled in your new office, there are often minor adjustments that need to be made to enhance your workplace and make it a comfortable environment for your staff to work in. Your Office Design Team will be on hand post-move to make any alterations and ensure you are happy with the finished product.
