Renovating your office space is always a significant undertaking, and deciding between a fit-out or refurbishment is always the first step towards achieving your desired results.
As these two terms are often used interchangeably, it is common for those unfamiliar with construction industry jargon to confuse an office fit-out with a refurbishment.
So, what’s the difference between an office fit-out and refurbishment? And how do you know which of them suits you best?
An office fit-out involves designing and transforming an empty space into a usable one so it can meet the specific needs and requirements of your workforce and business.
On the other hand, office refurbishment is renovating a workspace already in use. It is less extensive and has fewer requirements than a fit-out. In most cases, a refurbishment includes designing and implementing a new layout for the space, installing new office furniture, and making other necessary improvements to enhance its look, safety, and functionality.
Office refurbishments can be undertaken in phases, allowing the existing office to remain open whilst the works are undertaken. With our in-house move management team, phasing of works in a live site can be seamless with minimal disruption.
