When planning, designing and working on a fitout, you need all the help you can get. This is vital to ensure that you get what you really want and need for the construction, refurbishment or remodel of your space. It’s also important to get the right person who can help you with the project and this is why you need to hire the right fit out specialist to work with you.
Louis De Silva, Director of Working Environment, discusses in this video the key elements that you as a customer needs to consider when hiring a consultant to work with your commercial or media fitouts
Here are the highlights from the video that you need to take note of.
One of the most important factors you need to consider is how comfortable you are talking to them. This may seem trivial for some, but it’s actually essential in maintaining a smooth and professional relationship. The office fitout professionals should be someone you are willing to share details on both the good and the bad about your business so they have a clear understanding of it. It is only through this way that they can give you exactly what you want and need for the fitout.
The consultant should also have the experience needed to decipher what works and what doesn’t. A deep and wide knowledge about commercial and medical clinic design and production is a plus, but ultimately it’s experience in this field that will weigh more in determining the outcome of the project. For this reason, they should have an extensive experience to back them up.
- Taking the Lead
Although you will need to rely on office fit out specialists’ experience, they should still let you take the lead. It is after all, your business that we are talking about. It is important that the fitout consultant you choose shouldn’t make you feel that they are overriding you or controlling you. Most importantly, they should not seem like taking the project out of the direction you want it to go. The project should be a collaboration of ideas, thus you should not be completely left out of it.
Office fit out specialists can help you succeed or fail on your office construction or renovation, depending on how efficient and how professional they are, and the experience they bring to the table. Make sure you choose the right consultant who will work with you on your project.
