A new guide from FIS aims to assist clients through the fit-out and refurbishment process, taking in all aspects from the initial decision whether to smarten-up a current office or relocate and fit-out new premises through to post-occupancy evaluation.     

For many clients, creating an office fit-out that suits their business needs, their customers and staff – and having it happen on time, to specification and to budget – can seem daunting. This new Client Guide to Office Fit-Out and Refurbishment explains the process step by step and outlines the professional help available to ensure a successful outcome.

The guide will enable contractors to demonstrate that they follow best practice. For architects and designers, the guide can be used to aid their clients in understanding the fit-out process, highlighting the importance of design.

FIS launched its Client Guide to Office Fit-Out and Refurbishment at  Clerkenwell Design Week in May. A digital version of the guide can be  downloaded from the FIS website, and FIS members can request a free single copy by emailing info@thefis.org
