What does Office Refurb involve?

Refurbishment involves stakeholders. Staff and management will have wish-lists. IT and Comms must be involved in the process. Landlord and local authority can be gatekeepers to be included. The office design process is usually the most engaging part of the process. Living in a building whilst its being refurbished is the downside. Considerate project management is key to minimising disruption, communicating with staff and keeping the process on track. The best project management will also be flexible, adapting to challenges during the process.

An office refurbishment specification is a balance between renewal and retaining the existing. Analysis of upfront costs against the potential for future failure underpins many decisions when creating the detailed scope of works. Supporting the whole process are detailed drawings of office layouts, building services and relocation phases. 3D visuals often support the design process and help to set expectations. Office furniture is often the most visible feature and a good office refurbishment will incorporate furniture at the earliest design stage.

Managing an Office Refurbishment

Project Management for a commercial office refurbishment is made up of two main phases, pre-commencement and the works itself. Usually the pre-commencement phase for office refurbishment companies sets a project on track for completion, at the agreed cost, and to a defined scope of works. The success of commercial refurbishment projects has its foundations in the detailed planning, cost-plan and program carried-out during the pre-commencement phase.

Once a commercial office refurbishment scheme gets underway, project management is mainly about communication. A program will have the sequence of work and trades, but the precise overlap and coordination rest on liaison by the project manager. Communicating to staff and for building access, to deliveries and movers, building control and H&S requirements, makes a scheme run smoothly both for the client and for the trades people.

Contemporary office refurbishment will be very much about the look and feel of the space, the interior decoration and furnishings, but the success of the project rests on the detailed pre-commencement preparation and post-commencement communication.
