When it is time for an office fit out, London-based businesses can call on local experts, Thames Contracts. We have wide experience of carrying out high quality office design and fit out projects in the London area over more than 25 years, and have built up a fine reputation, with our clients often recommending us to others.
Office Fit Out Service
Fitting out a new office might seem like a daunting prospect, but it does not have to be if you call in the experts. Thames Contracts can manage the project right through and we will take charge of everything, from the initial office design brief right through to the full fit out and even the finishing touches.
Fit out contractors Thames will begin the process by visiting you and consulting with you about your requirements and business needs, so that we get a clear idea of what the project is intended to achieve. Our brief is tailored to your individual workplace and shaped around the requirements of your business, bearing in mind your thoughts about the future so that your office design can grow with you.
We will create a 3D computer-generated design as a starting point for your office fit out in London. We will also give you a detailed quote, because the refit cost is likely to depend on your decision about various design options, choice of materials and so on. Space planning is an important element of the brief, which will also take in elements such as your choice of lighting, office partitioning, walls and flooring, how to lay out each particular section, and all the facilities and fittings which you want to include in the completed office interiors.
Once the brief has been drawn up, we will meet with you to agree a timescale for the project and also to discuss any issues which need to be borne in mind over the timings, such as your company’s busiest times. We are proud of our record for completing projects on schedule and within the agreed budget, something which has built our reputation and keeps our customers coming back.
New Office Fit Outs
Sometimes an office may be brand new and just a shell, where all the fittings and fixtures are being brought in for the first time. However, it may also be the case that the office was used by another operation previously, and in this case it will be a question of stripping back and removing all the existing fittings in readiness for installation of the new ones which your business will require.
Disposal of the old fittings is one of the many tasks which could prove to be extremely fiddly and time-consuming if you had to organise it yourself, but Thames Contracts can do this for you as part of our pledge to take on and project manage the whole office fit out process, every step of the way.
The next task is to arrange provision of facilities and services for the building, for instance, organising plumbing and electricity for kitchen areas and washrooms in readiness for the fitting out of the offices themselves. A number of different trades will need to be called in and it is vital that they are all scheduled to be at the site at the right time, to avoid valuable time being lost in waiting for a service to be connected. Thames deals with all of this and makes sure that the right services are connected at the right time and that all safety standards are met.
Equally important is the physical installation of fixtures, from flooring to lighting, partitions, doors, kitchen/washroom units and all the other items which turn a building’s shell into a fully-functioning office. We are experts at juggling all these requirements to ensure that the office fit out of your London business takes place in line with the timetable agreed at the outset.
Once the offices have been fitted out, the next priority is the installation of free-standing furniture, such as desks, filing cabinets and storage units, as well as furniture for your reception area, which could include sofas and soft furnishings, to help create an atmosphere which is welcoming yet businesslike at the same time. We will provide you with the right furniture for your purposes and make sure that its layout fits in with your initial office space planning brief, to optimise the use of every area of your building.
Project management is included as part of the overall cost, with Thames project managing everything and taking all the worries out of your hands. We provide a single point of contact for all aspects of the office design and build, ensuring accurate scheduling of the different trades personnel so you do not have to spend your time making phone calls and appointments. Our expertise and experience will ensure that all goes smoothly as the various steps are carried out to create a workplace perfectly geared to your business’s needs.
