The fit out of any new building, whether you are an occupier or a landlord, can be a complicated process, requiring effective project management to ensure it is done within the necessary timescales and budget.

To ensure this, you will need an accurate project scope and to prepare a detailed specification with drawings describing the works, as well as a cost plan and programme for delivery of the project.

Once you have a detailed description of the works, you will need to prepare a pack of documents including an appropriate construction contract. This will allow you to obtain competitive quotes for delivery of the fit-out works.

The appointment of the contractor will follow, and once work starts on your project, this will need to be managed effectively all the way through to completion in readiness for your occupation.

Management of the works will involve a lot of decision making, much of which will have cost and programme implications.

There may also be clarifications that the contractor will seek in order to deliver the project. Costs, evolving programmes and change will all need to be managed to ensure your project is delivered on time, within budget and to a quality that meets your expectations.
