The success of your next commercial fit out is going to be determined by a number of factors, but none more important than the team you partner with to bring your workspace to life.
Your commercial workspace specialist should be an extension of your team, working collaboratively at all levels of your business to take you through the fit-out process step by step.
But what if your fit-out specialist sounds great and offers every service, does this guarantee an amazing design and execution?
The answer to this question is one that must be discovered through research and consultation with your perspective fit-out team. One of the most important roles in that specialist team will be that played by the lead designer, or designers, depending on the size and scope of the project.
Designing commercial fit-outs should be a highly flexible and client-centric process, one that must change and adapt depending on the needs and expectations of every client, but also a process that must adhere to real-world constraints such as budget or environmental factors.
This isn’t to suggest that designers will only do what’s contained in the brief, and have no creative input to the overall planning process.
The reality is that design experts will draw from their experience in rolling out commercial workspaces from a range of industries and locations, so don’t be afraid to ask for their experience relative to your project, and make sure you view their previous work from other workspaces to be certain of their relevant experience.
This step is critical, as your designers experience is what allows them to apply their creative vision, blend it with practical know-how, and ultimately bring your workplace to life.
Ensure you also have a clear outline of the role your designer will be forming within the fit-out team. Designers should be providing visual concepts, liaising with architects and construction contractors, sourcing swatches, furniture samples, colour palettes, documentation to hand to your construction team and all the way through to the final handover of the finished workplace.
Having your chosen designer working as an integral part of the overall fit-out process will not only ensure your final workplace meets your concept designs but will act as a critical part in delivering a workspace that is set up for success and one that meets your future business needs.
