2. Skilful Interior designing: you need a skilful and experienced professional interior designer to come up with the best possible design for your office, which stands up to your expectations and meet all the motives behind the refurbishment process. The designer can come up with a 3D image of your office, which will give you a fair idea of how your office will look after the competition and you can accordingly make alterations and modifications. The designer will inculcate all the desired features and details in his or her designs.
3. Fittings and furniture work: assigning and keeping provisions for plumbing and electronic fittings is the first stage of the renovation project. This can include fitting of taps, water outlets, etc; and fitting of lights, cabling, heating or cooling devices, etc. use only best quality and government approved fittings for security purpose. Furniture is one of the basic requirements of an office. Pre-plan the details, fittings, and positioning of furniture. Choose the best quality and comfortable furniture according to your budget.
4. Health and Safety Measures: do not forget to include health and safety measures in your design. Make your design according to the safety measures and risk management tips and guidelines issued by the government.
