completing an office refurb project with minimal downtime.

Avoiding disruption to a workplace and preventing downtime to key areas of a building are challenges we face on many projects. At Most Interiors we treat each client as an individual. We know from years of experience that no two clients or two buildings are the same. That’s why for every single project, we work collaboratively with our customers to come up with a scheme that works for them to minimise disruption during working hours. We always take a flexible approach and would never dream of telling our clients how a schedule of work has to happen.

the importance of planning.

Effective project management considerably benefits any refurbishment and especially minimises disruption. We always discuss with our clients which areas of the building need to be given high priority to avoid disruptive noise and mess and we take time to understand what hours that space can be available to us during the works. We don’t rush into any project, we plan everything first so there are no surprises when we do begin work on site and this also ensures that the project runs smoothly throughout.

We work with our clients in a flexible way to help them avoid disruption to their working environment. For example, where we know that a client cannot afford to have any downtime to their client areas such as reception, meeting rooms and corridors, we often work during evenings and weekends to complete the fit out.

See the example below of one of our project schedules designed to meet a client’s individual needs to ensure that teams can keep working Monday to Friday:

 


 

Each weekend, we will complete the works outlined and clean up so the space is ready again for the staff to use for work on Monday morning. Over the 5 weekends all of the refit tasks will be completed while the space continues to be used for business as usual throughout the working week.

temporary workspaces.

At times it is necessary to move some staff into temporary workspaces so that they can continue to work while refurbishment works are being undertaken. This can often be a more cost effective solution to evening and weekend works.

Why does Most Interiors go to all this effort? Because as a result of giving a client such personal attention, we have happy clients that come back to us time and time again.
