What is a CAT A fit out?
Cat A fit out is the basic fit out of an empty space, creating a base shell comprised of all the necessary components within an office. Cat A fit out includes mechanical & electrical works, ceiling grid installation, lighting, raised access floors, plumbing and basic finishes such as walls and flooring, giving you everything you need to be able to build your unique workspace.
Cat A fit out for your building
When relocating your office, you may be considering buildings in a variety of conditions. To transform an old building into a useable ‘blank canvas’ ready for personalising to your organisation, you will need to undertake a Cat A fit out.
When a lease is expiring, many landlords will also require the tenants to return the space to it’s original Cat A status again, ready for the next leasee.
By taking an intelligent approach to your Cat A refurb, you will ensure the building is in marketable condition, as well as protecting the building for the long term. For some buildings, a Cat A refurbishment could increase the value of your property and help protect assets for the future.
