Renovation vs Refurbishment – what is the difference?
Renovation refers to the messy demolition of current walls and re-organising the layout and then the process of making it look good follows thereafter.
Refurbishment refers to sprucing up the old look with minimal disruption to current working environment.
Renovations are required when a company outgrows their current space and they need to maximise the usage of their space. When they need to re-assess and redesign office layout. This could mean demolition of current walls/drywalls and rebuilding new structures and offices.

What to expect when renovating?
ITS GONNA GET MESSY! But…. With proper planning and project management we can ensure minimal disruption to the workforce.
You will need to have very clear communication with the staff regarding no-go areas. A very detailed clear program of works to be done.
Will you need a permit? Most places do require permits for making any changes to load-bearing parts of the building as well as windows, entrances and exits. It can be a lengthly process – so be prepared!
Depending on the extent of renovations – you will most probably require Health & Safety assistance.
Debris removal & space to store skips is another factor you will need to keep in mind.
Some components to renovation & revamping
Many people under-estimate what a huge impact a simple coat of paint or fresh colour does for the look & feel of your office space. Painting is probably the most cost effective renovation you could implement, with most effect & impact.
