Common Fit-out Mistakes & How to Avoid Them

A new office fit out can be an exciting time for you and your company. It can be an opportunity to work with your employees to create a space that helps them perform to the best of their abilities as well as reflecting your company’s brand and culture. That said, a fit-out can become a costly affair if it isn’t managed properly.

Here are some of the most common stumbling blocks for companies doing their office fit-out and how to avoid them.

Not Keeping within Your Budget

Your budget is one of the most important aspects of your office fit-out. It’s important to keep a close eye on it through every phase of your project. If not, you can find yourself bogged down in unforeseen expenses and cost overruns, making your fit-out far more expensive than it needs to be.

Poor Space Management

A poorly optimized office plan can strangle the flow of your workplace and kill your employees’ productivity. As such, it is vital to put together a well thought out space plan that maximizes efficiency and space while taking into account the natural workflow in your office.

Brand Incompatibility

A good office should always reflect who you are as a company and as a brand. The best way to do this is to sit down and analyses your company down to its very essence, its brand, its beliefs and values. Once you have that, keep those things in mind when putting together the design and you’ll have a workplace that is a great reflection of your company.

Unclear Communication

Communication is key in order to ensure your fit-out project proceeds smoothly. Keeping everyone on the same page, be it consultants, contractors, employees and management minimizes the chance of miscommunication and mistakes, which can lead to delays and cost overruns.
