Fitting out a new or existing commercial space looks quite a challenge at first glance. However, it won’t be a hustle and bustle as long as you do your homework in advance. From the look and feel of the office to its available facilities, you should take into account what will increase staff productivity and improve your company’s image.
Whether the electrical fit-out is part of a complete fitting or just by itself, the following advice will help you in the planning process.
So are you ready to “get fit” for a new commercial fit-out?
1. Ask yourself the 5 W questions
“Where do I need the commercial fit-out?”
While the answer is quite obvious when you own the space for quite a while, this is a question for business owners that have just acquired or plan to acquire a site. So, first and foremost, find and familiarize with the commercial space you want the fit-out for.
“Why do I need an office or shop fit-out?”
Second, you should know the reasons why you plan an electrical fit-out. Whether you design a new office, extend or renovate an existing shop, know your objectives too.
“What kind of electrical work do I need to be done?”
Next on your to-do list is to identify what electrical tasks need to be performed in the commercial space. Installing alarm systems, heating/cooling units, interior and exterior lighting are just the basics required for a commercial electrical workload.
“When do I need the fit-out to be finished?”
Another thing to consider is to set a timeline for the entire fit-out process. Depending on the size and complexity of your commercial fit out, we recommend you to set realistic timeframes. By doing this, you can monitor the progress every step of the way.
“Who will perform the commercial electrical fit-out?”
Last but least, choosing a team of licensed and qualified electricians is vital in the whole fit-out process. Not only that you will receive a personalized advice for your business but you will have the peace of mind of getting quality work and long-term results.
