We often have clients who think that their best option for delivering an interior fitout or refurbishment project is to design and project manage the job themselves. They generally think that they will save money and deliver just as good a job. This is very rarely the case. If you have a fitout or refurbishment project coming up then you need to think carefully how are you going to manage the risks involved.
Are you aware of the current construction health & safety regulations? Are you fully aware of the CDM regulations and your legal responsibilities as a client? Do you know about fire regulations and the requirements for means of escape and fire walls?
Do you have a full array of trusted tradesmen experienced in commercial fitout that you can turn to? Do have experience in running construction projects and know the levels of quality finish that are acceptable or not? Do you know how to schedule a construction program in the most efficient and cost-effective way?
We may be able to help you by providing a design and construction project management service which gives you the best of all worlds. Our skilled design team can work with you to create a fantastic interior design. Our pre-construction team can advise on a target project cost and then manage the procurement process with all trades. Our project managers can schedule and manage the entire project on site and ensure adherence to program and quality standards.

Our experienced project managers take responsibility for the complete project. Honesty, careful planning and regular progress checks ensure projects run smoothly and are completed on time. Furthermore every project is also assigned to a project manager who will be your contact during your project.
DO YOU NEED BUILDING CONTROL APPROVAL FOR A FIT OUT PROJECT?
One common question that clients have is whether building control approval is needed before a fit out project starts. Or putting it another way - will my fitout or refurbishment work need to comply with building regulations. The answer is that it is very likely that you will need to get sign off from building control for any works. We normally deal with Building Control, the fire officer and other authorities on your behalf.
WHAT HEALTH & SAFETY REGULATIONS NEED TO BE COMPLIED WITH IN AN OFFICE FIT OUT?
If you are doing an office fit out or refurbishment project then there are a number of health and safety regulations and risks that need to be considered. The main one to be aware of is CDM Regulations (The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015). As the Client you have specific legal duties that must be carried out if you are having any construction work done. You can read more about this topic on the HSE website here - CDM 2015 Client Duties
We ensure that all regulations are complied with including CDM regulations, HSE requirements etc. This also allows you to put your valuable time where it is most needed.
