We’re all familiar with the expression ‘a job well planned is a job half done’. Well, this couldn’t be truer when embarking on a workplace refurbishment project which, if well-orchestrated will massively boost staff morale and attract people to spend more time in the office.

Too often though, one has observed organisations attempting such a project without engaging with a professional design and build company with more than dire consequences. These can include significant loss in revenue, costly health and safety incidents, and non-compliance with planning laws, building regulations, fire safety regulations, and other statutory requirements. In addition, the desired ‘moral boost’ a refurbishment should bring can be completely overshadowed by the unnecessarily prolonged disruption of a poorly planned works schedule.

Early planning is crucial in assessing a company’s overall strategic goals prior to kick-off. Will works be implemented safely and efficiently to ensure minimal disruption, and will budgets be allocated where they will create maximum impact?

In planning a refurbishment, consideration should be given to:

  •  How many years remain on a lease and what will the return on investment be?
  •  What are the cost implications of dilapidations at a future date?
  • How can works be phased to avoid disruption yet be conducted safely?
  • At what time of year will the works cause the least disruption?
  • Where will invested budget be most impactful?
  • How do statutory regulations affect the refurbishment plan?
  • What are the legal implications and on whose shoulders do these rest?

Always reach out to an expert organisation with great testimonials to guarantee a successful, on-time, and in-budget refurbishment plan.

That way, ‘the job’s half done!’
