Why refurbish your building?
Nothing lasts forever and your building is certainly no different. From broken windows, burnt-out lightsÂ orÂ peeling paint, your building is not getting any younger and the perception of your business can make all the difference to your employee motivation to winning new projects.
Interior design as well as architectural landscaping speaks volumes about a company. First impressions are important when meeting a new customer or client and a shabby impressionÂ will do you no favours. That’s where refurbishment comes in – this can be as a planned project or on-going maintenance services.
Who to work with? Three questions to ask
It may seem like a daunting task when searching for a companyÂ to refurbish your building. There are a few things you should look for in order to narrow down the list of potential companies and we’ve
- Someone who works with you not against you:Â a professional building services companyÂ will have experience and they know what is best. However, they will listen to your opinions and try to accommodate them whereÂ possible
- Worth the money: TheyÂ shouldn’t be outrageously expensive or remarkably cheap. Try to get your moneyâ€™s worth and find a company which has significant experience in relatedÂ projectsÂ for a reasonable price. The most expensive companies are not always the best but as the whole adage goes, if you pay peanuts then you should expect monkeys. Calling round for multiple quotes should provide you with a range of figures to work with. A professional building company should be happy to provide you with a quote.
- Efficient and timely:Â They should haveÂ realistic time frame if you are undergoing a significant refurbishment project. Additionally, if it’s critical that your business continues operating during the refurbishment process then you should make this clear and a professional building services company should be able to work around your core office hours.
By following these three questions, you will be able to find a professionalÂ company that will do your office refurbishment in a timely manner at the right price. And most importantly to a high standard.

In addition, you should also consider taking a look at some previous customersâ€™ experiences. Just because the company has great reviews does not mean you will have a good experience yourself. On the other hand, the opposite is true as well. These reviews will help you get an idea of how the company deals with different situations as well as with customersâ€™ problems. If you cannot find reviews or if there are too few of them, it could be an indicator of an organisationâ€™s lack of experience. This can also mean that not many customers found the work they did to be anything worth reviewing. This is a warning sign and you should proceed with caution or start looking at another company altogether.
In conclusion, it is not any easy task to give someone permission to alter your workplace. Whether you like to admit it or not, work is your second home and you have to choose the right person to modify it carefully.
