Manchester is now a destination office hotspot. The relocation of the government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to Marble Street Manchester, announced in February, is the latest high profile move to the city.

The move is a response to the government’s Levelling Up White Paper which outlines its ambition for growth across the country, moving away from London-centric decision making. Manchester has a vital role to play.

Office fit out experts

Office fit out experts take away the stresses of time consuming decision making and project management, from company directors who need to instead focus on productivity and profitability.

The experience and knowledge of office fit out experts facilitate rapid and quality office refurbishment and build projects. Time taken over office fit outs directly impacts productivity and therefore the bottom line. Poorly thought out office fit out design creates problems once the project is complete, and changes can be very expensive.

Office fit out experts will address all aspects of the project from the design stage onwards, including utilities, technology, safety, bespoke client requirements and scalability.

Different types of office interior fit out

An office interior fit out might involve the refurbishment of an existing office, or the interior fit out of a new office building.

The two main types of office interior fit out are Category A and Category B.

Category A (or Cat A) fit outs are usually carried out for a landlord, investor or developer ready to rent out the office to an as yet unspecified tenant. A CAT A scope of works usually includes mechanical and electrical services, air conditioning systems and raised flooring. Services such as utilities, rest rooms and reception areas will also be updated.

Category B (or Cat B) fit outs are designed to the bespoke specification of a tenant. A Cat B fit out brings office space to life based on the tenant’s business, people and culture. It will usually include wellbeing facilities, collaboration spaces, meeting rooms, catering facilities and breakout areas as well as traditional workstations. The fit out will also accommodate branding, colour, furniture and furnishings.
