how to choose the best fit out company

are you nervous about choosing a fit-out company for your upcoming project?
So, you’re considering a commercial fit out. It might be for a retail, hospitality, or commercial office space. You know you need to get some professional help. But how exactly do you make sure that you choose the best commercial fit out company in Sydney? The good news is there’s a lot you can do to make sure the commercial fit out company you choose is up to the job. Spend some time talking to the companies you are considering. When you talk to them you want to determine whether they:
KEY POINT #1

listen to you

To deliver a project that meets your needs, a fit-out company needs to hear you. Where you don’t feel heard, there’s a good chance the company will deliver design concepts that don’t meet your specific requirements. Your commercial fit out company should meet you onsite to see what they possibilities are. They should ask questions and listen to your answers. Do you feel like you’re being listened to?
KEY POINT #2

have innovative ideas

Your commercial fit out company shouldn’t be looking solely to you for ideas. They should offer up innovative ideas that both excite and inspire you. Does the fit-out company make suggestions that improve upon your vision?
KEY POINT #3

have experience and confidence

Confidence comes with experience. And fit out companies who are confident aren’t afraid of complicated jobs. Is the company trying to talk you out of ideas that you know are possible?
KEY POINT #4

can stick to your budget

Cost blow outs not only hurt you financially, but they can also mean you can’t afford to get the job finished. Your commercial fit out company should be able to provide a variety of options to achieve your vision at the right price point. Are you being pressured to spend more than you can afford?
KEY POINT #5

can deliver your project on time

After cost blow outs, creeping deadlines are one of the most frustrating aspects of a commercial fit out. Every day past the agreed delivery date costs you money in lost revenue. Does the fit-out company provide you with a schedule outlining when everything will happen?
KEY POINT #6

offer a full service

Not all commercial shopfitting companies in Sydney offer an end to end service. You might have to hire an interior designer, a draftsman, a project manager, and a shopfitter. When a company doesn’t offer design and construct services, costs can blow out and miscommunications can occur. Does the fit-out company send you to other service providers to get the job done?
KEY POINT #7

are excited about the project

You want to work with someone who is genuinely excited about delivering an awesome outcome for you. You want to work with someone who loves what they do. Anything less will reflect in the quality of work that is delivered. Do you sense their creative passion when discussing your project?
KEY POINT #8

can deliver high end finishes

You don’t want to settle for an average finish on your commercial shopfitting project. Average won’t draw in your clientele and entice them to spend money with you. Do you feel like you’re being asked to compromise on your vision?
KEY POINT #9

can communicate clearly

You don’t want to be kept in the dark as your project progresses. Not knowing what’s happening causes you a great deal of stress and anxiety. Does the fit-out company willingly answer questions? Are they available to talk to you about your concerns?
KEY POINT #10

are transparent

If you choose a commercial fit out company in Sydney who isn’t transparent in their practices and particularly when it comes to quoting, you may have an issue. Do you feel like you’re being given all the information you need to make an educated decision?
KEY POINT #11

have proof of past work

If a commercial fit out company doesn’t want to show you pictures of past work you have to ask yourself why? Do you get the feeling that they’re not proud of their work or that they have very little experience?

trust your gut

At the end of the day, choosing the right fit out company in Sydney will come down to a gut feeling. You should be on the lookout for any red flags early in the process. If you feel like something’s not quite right, chances are you won’t get the finished product or the service experience you were hoping for. Trust your instincts and do your homework.
