Effective Office Refurbishments for Ambitious Businesses

Businesses shouldn’t be held back from reaching their full potential because of inefficient office interiors. The reality, however, is that many carry on for years with spaces that no longer meet their requirements.

If you feel like your office is hindering your progress, then you’ve come to the right place. At Rap Interiors, we’ve got 30+ years of experience helping ambitious businesses to move forward with practical, on-brand office refurbishments.

With our help, you can say goodbye to the outdated, uninspiring facilities that don’t give you what you need. In their place, we’ll build a workspace that matches your ambition and elevates your business to new heights.

Our Office Refurbishment Process

We understand that refurbishments can be daunting – especially for those with sizeable spaces. Because of this, we aim to make the transformation process as easy and stress-free as possible for our clients.

To ensure this is the case, we work to an efficient, time-tested process that gives our clients peace of mind. Here’s an insight into how we work:

  • Site Survey

  • Space Planning and Design

  • Transformation

  • Settling In

The key to successful office refurbishments is good planning. Therefore, we start with a site survey to get to know you, gauge your requirements, and evaluate your space.

During the visit, you will see your dedicated surveyor taking measurements, assessing potential challenges, and developing ideas. This provides information to relay to our in-house office designers, who will work on a visual concept for the new space.

If you’re interested in booking a site survey and consultation, please email your brief here.

Next, we’ll develop a design in accordance with your budget, aesthetic goals, and working practices. With an award-winning office interior design team, we can guide you on space planning, decorations, furniture solutions, and much more.

Space planning is particularly important if you’re looking to improve workflow, boost productivity, or adapt to a new working style. Your office should support your working practices, and space planning helps to optimise your layout so it meets your unique needs.

To help you visualise the layout and design, our designers can provide a 2D or 3D representation of the new office. They also invite you to collaborate and give feedback along the way, which helps firm up the design before works begin.

Check out some of our stunning office design projects here.

Once the design and space configuration has been agreed, we’ll get cracking with the refurbishment work itself. Just leave things to our experienced project team and tradespeople, who will carry out the build in accordance with a strict schedule of works.

We also pride ourselves on conducting construction work responsibly while ensuring minimal disruption to the surrounding area. This means making coordinated material deliveries, maintaining high cleanliness standards, and performing regular site inspections.

Success! At this point, it’s time to move into the office that we’ve transformed from inefficient to inspirational. Watch as your employees settle into their new, morale-boosting space that will help them and your business to thrive.

We believe that hardworking employees deserve a nice working environment, and our refurbishment service will ensure they stay for the long-term. What’s more, once the word gets out about your stunning space, you’ll be able to attract the brightest talent from your industry.

Before saying goodbye, we’ll remind you that we provide post-project support to give you peace of mind. Client satisfaction is of optimum importance to us, so we strive to help even after we’ve handed over the keys.

How long does an office refurbishment take?

Every project is different, so timing depends on the scale and complexity of the work. That said, our experienced team has worked on projects of all sizes and scopes. This means we can confidently deliver your refurb within an agreed timescale.

We also understand that time is money, so we will also ensure you transition into your new space with minimal downtime in between.

How much does an office refurbishment cost?

Like the duration, the cost of a refurbishment depends on various factors. These include the size of the space, desired quality of finishes, design complexity, current condition of the interiors, and more.

Do you provide furniture?

Yes! We will source and install your new office furniture. We can provide desks, task chairs, booths, pods, breakout area seating, reception desks, or something bespoke. Whatever you need, we’ve got the solution.

What’s the difference between a fit out and refurbishment?

An office fit out is the process of turning an empty space into a fully functional, usable working environment. For incoming tenants, this involves installing new features (e.g. meeting rooms, furniture, and branding) to meet their unique needs.

Conversely, a refurb comes later down the line when the space is occupied. There are a number of reasons for a refurb, such as a company rebrand, dated interiors, or changing working practices.

What areas do you cover?

We typically carry out office refurbishment projects across London and the home counties.

We have also worked for clients with offices across the UK, including one that required multiple refurbishments as part of a nationwide initiative. Take a look at one of those projects, based in Manchester, here. 

Whether you’re based in Kent, London, Brighton, Croydon, or beyond, we’d love to hear about your project. Please fill out the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.
