BOLP carry out both CAT A & B fit outs on behalf of landlords and clients across the UK, and are starting to carry out more and more CAT A+
Many of the projects we complete for our clients are Design and Build, where we are able to work with the client team from the building selection at the very start of the journey, right until day one on site following completion of the fit out. Our teams will work with you to achieve fully compliant exciting workplaces, integrating our design and management team to ensure all the office goals are achieved.
A basic landlord fit out which will generally involve leaving the space compliant to an open plan layout ready for viewings and tenant occupation. The normal standard would be new ceilings, new raised access flooring and decoration to leave a clean blank canvas to work with.
This a client fit out which develops the blank canvas left by the landlord. There will be a lot of liaison between client and contractor during this time to achieve the right end result and will range from all fabric finishes, M&E design and expectancy, Reception Desks, AV installs and Finishing touches such as branding.
This is a more modern approached being used by landlords, where an office space is still in many ways left neutral, but is more ready for occupation, so there may be a reception area, a breakout space and kitchen and some offices, meaning tenants have the potential headache of a CAT B fit out.
This is a method used within construction services where a contractor is appointed to both design and build the project, as opposed to the traditional route of years gone by where a client employs a design team and then a contractor once the design has been agreed.
