Choosing The Best Office Refurbishment Contractors
So you’ve decided that an office refurbishment is the best option for your business and now the next step is ensuring that you choose the best office refurbishment contractors that can deliver exactly what you’re looking for down to the finest of details. Working with the right team that you can trust every step of the way is essential for ensuring that things goes right first time round with minimal stress or hassle.
In this latest blog post, we have set out 6 key steps for choosing the best office refurbishment contractors in your area.
Step 1 – Check Reputation
When looking for the best office refurbishment contractors, the first step is ensuring that they have a solid reputation. Experience always matters and is a key indicator that they are a good fit for your project. Experience counts and wins the best contractors – just like JST Construction – the key jobs for office refurbishments and office fit outs. One of the key ways to check out reputation is by doing a simple Google search. Simply enter the name of the company you’re fact-finding for e.g ”JST Construction Reviews” and they should have a Google listing with a number of 5-star reviews. This is the first step to ensuring that the construction company you are considering is in fact credible and has a solid reputation.
Step 2 – Do They Offer Free Quotations?
Once you have shortlisted a few different companies based on their online reputation and quality of reviews, it’s now time to start enquiring with 2-3 different refurbishment companies to get a general gist of the type of prices that you can be expected to pay. Although this is a recommended tip, it’s also important to not solely choose a company on price as the quality of service is the most important factor. Going for cheap may indeed cost you more in the longer term. Companies just like JST Construction are able to provide you with a comprehensive quotation with no hidden costs. Within your quotation, it should include everything including materials cost, labour costs, and any other additional expenses.
Step 3 – Check out Portfolio
The next step, once you’ve received your quotation, is to check out previous work done by the company you are fact-finding on. If they don’t have any currently on their website, simply drop them an email and ask the company if they can show you at least 2-3 samples of previously completed refurbishments. If you look through online reviews, this is also another good way to see the type of work completed and the different stages that were undertaken by the company.
Step 4 – Think Local
Another top tip for choosing the best type of office refurbishment contractors is to think local. Thinking local is essential as it’s much easier to choose contractors that are based within an hour of the work that will be undertaken. Throughout the project, this gives you much easier in-person access to the project manager that can help to speed things up and also reduce costs as a result. For example, JST Construction are based in Ellesmere Port, but we serve areas within an hour of our physical address including office refurbishments in Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, and Warrington.
Step 5 – Accreditations
Another important step to deciding on the best contractor for your office refurbishment is to perform a background check on all relevant construction and building accreditations. These should be clearly visible on the home page of the company – or at least accessible in the main menu. If they are not, this is normally a red flag and you should avoid them. When it comes to office refurbishments, just a few of the main accreditations to look out for include BM Trada, Safe Contractor, and Trust Mark.
Step 6 – Compare List Of Services
When choosing a contractor for your refurbishment, it’s important to choose a company that can cover the full breadth of what you need. For example, JST Construction is able to provide a comprehensive refurbishment service that covers everything that you need including project design, consultancy, office furniture installation, and management throughout. It’s always good to select a company that offers a one-stop-shop so that you are not using various companies for different parts of the work. Other types of refurbishment services we offer include office design, partitioning, and much more.
