A Category B fit out relates to any office space that requires a medium level of refurbishment, which includes having all or some of the following:
- New Lighting
- New rooms created
- Reception area created or updated
- Kitchen areas updated or created
Reasons for starting a Cat B fit outÂ project
You might want to improve the working conditions for your staff and also improve your brand image. Or, if you donâ€™t own the building and the lease isnâ€™t very long and youâ€™re thinking of re-locating within the next five to ten years, Cat BÂ fit outs allow you to update the building without an extreme commitment.
What kind of building company do you want to work with?
You should work with a professional building company who have experience of Category B refurbishments and can show you a portfolio of their work. They should also offer outstanding customer service, which means they will help you to apply for the necessary permissions from your local authority and the landlord.
The building company should also have their own plumbing and electrical department, or work closely with other professionals who provide this service, to ensure the smooth running of any building project.
What should you consider during your Cat B fit out project?
- Professionalism of the building company chosen
- Support and maintenance offered
- Tailor-made solutions to your requirements
- A one-stop shop service including painting, plumbing and electrics
- Whether the work can be carried out while the building is in use
- The length of time the project will take
- A competitive price
What are the objectives of your Cat B fit out Project?
The way clients view your brand will have a better impact if you can show them a modern, clean and up to date office, rather than an old, damp old fashioned building. If you regularly have visitors to the office then it should reflect how you want your business to be perceived.
Staff satisfaction is another reason to have a bright, clean office space. Decent lighting and working in a space that is adequately heated or cooled affects office morale and therefore productivity. Have a look at this Huffington Post article about health, well-being and productivity.
