Office refurbishment FAQ’s

What does an office refurbishment involve?

An office refurbishment includes a number of services such as space planning, design, decorating, electrical and mechanical. There are many different reasons a company may refurbish such as:

How much does an office refurbishment cost?

Office refurbishment costs per square metre are often given as an indication, with prices varying from around £40 per square metre to around £80 per square metre.

The cost depends on whether mechanical and electrical upgrades are required and the specification of the fixtures and fittings. Think about how much costs vary for items for your home. For instance the cost of a carpet can vary from £10 per square metre to £50 per square metre.

When you’re having new flooring, lighting and furniture, the prices can vary considerably. You may just need a basic refurbishment to keep you going for the short-term or a high-spec refurb where there's a office design concept driving the project. This is why office refurbishment companies will need to do a site visit and understand your requirements before providing a quote.

We can give an indication of your office refurbishment cost, but in order to give an accurate quote, we request a site visit. This is free and with no obligation to engage us as your office refurbishment contractors.

How do I brief our requirements?

A good office refurbishment brief will cover many areas such as the company objectives, staff numbers, style of working, company ethos and branding, functional requirements and of course, budget. We cover this in detail in our office refurbishment guide.

Do we need to project manage the office refurbishment?

You will need someone to be the key contact between your organisation and your office refurbishment contractor. But, quite often, they'll undertake office refurb project management so you won’t be expected to become an office refurbishment specialist overnight!

How do we choose an office refurbishment company?

It’s prudent to do your research before selecting your office refurbishment partner. Spend some time browsing their website and look at their projects. Do they have similar sized projects to yours?

You’ll often find that office refurbishment companies like to specialise in jobs of a certain size and will sometimes explicitly state the desired value of projects they will quote for.

Have a look at their customer reviews. At Trevor Blake Fit Out, we’re very proud of our 5 star Google Reviews. Also, ask for references from other customers of completed office refurb projects.

If you have never done an office refurbishment before and need some help formulating what you require, choose a company that can guide you through the process, helping you to define your brief. An office refurb specialist with good project management will provide a detailed office refurb specification, manage the schedule, coordinate suppliers, source materials and ensure everything comes together on time and on budget.

How long does an office refurbishment take?

A typical project takes between 6 to 12 weeks but we have done refurbishments in much less time.
