Budget Overrun? No Problem! How to Get Your Office Fitout Back on Track

Are you feeling overwhelmed because your office fitout is over budget? Don’t worry, there are ways to bring it back in line.

Start by re-evaluating your initial list of needs and wants for the fitout. Prioritise the essential items and consider scaling back or delaying the non-essential ones. Then, identify the key areas of your business that require the most investment and focus on spending there.

To further manage costs without compromising quality, consider cost-saving measures like using more affordable materials, selecting less expensive furniture, or sourcing alternative suppliers. At Premis, we’re happy to help you find the best solutions.

One of our biggest tips is to involve your contractor early in the project. This can save you time and money by avoiding design-related back-and-forth. Additionally, discuss trade availability with your contractor to avoid unexpected costs.

If your project is still over budget, involve stakeholders in the resolution process and keep them informed. Discuss potential solutions if there are any delays or changes to the project timeline.

Don’t worry; a high-quality office fitout is still possible even if you’re over budget. At Premis, we’ve worked with numerous clients to manage costs and deliver great workplaces. Reach out to us today to discuss your needs and how we can help you.
