What is an office fit out?
Essentially, an office fit out is an office refurbishment. However, it usually involves more fundamental changes to the space than simply changing furniture and furnishings.
An office fit out is a chance to completely transform the look and feel of your workspace. You’ll be able to choose a new, more functional and aesthetically pleasing interior design for your office buildings or rooms.
An office fit out can involve adding or changing features, such as:
- Suspended ceilings
- Mezzanine floors
Your office refurbishment contractor will also complete:
Your contractor may enlist help from subcontractors to complete trade-specific work. They will be responsible for organising and liaising with the subcontractor, as well as ensuring that all work is completed within your budgetary parameters.
All subcontractors will be highly vetted to ensure all your work is completed to a consistently high standard and professional quality.
What types of office fit out are available
We can completely customise your office fit out to meet your specific needs. Still, there are a few general types of fit out you should know about.
Shell & Core
This is the first stage of an office fit out. It includes the installation of the basic structure of your new space — you can think of this as the ‘shell’. Contractors will install ‘core’ components, such as cladding, toilets, communal areas, and even lift shafts.
A Cat A fit out will then bring the space up to a usable standard. For example, before a developer hands over the keys of a property to a landlord, they’ll usually ensure the space has had at least a Cat A fit out.
Cat A office fit outs can include the addition of suspended ceilings, electrical and fire detection services, blinds, raised floors and surface finishes.
A Cat B fit out goes one step further. They are carried out in spaces where the basic structure, layout, and core features have already been installed.
Cat B office fit outs can include carpeting, lighting, painting, office furniture, kitchen facilities, break-out rooms, seating, partitioning, IT and audio, office branding, and more.
As Shell & Core and Cat A fit outs are more structural and don’t need changing between property occupants, Cat B fit outs (which concern the more aesthetic elements of a space) are more common.

Metal stud wall partitioning
Do you need strong, sound-proof internal partitioning that offers better fire protection? Consider whether metal stud partitioning might be a good fit for your office space.
What is metal stud partitioning?
Metal stud partitions are a good choice when fire protection and/or sound reduction is a priority. The system has a metal stud framework with layers of plasterboard fixed to the outside.
A wide range of boards is available, including moisture-resistant, Fireline and Soundbloc. You can get boards with aluminium trims, or taping and filling to give a monolithic finish.
Glazed wall partitioning
Are you looking for a transparent wall partition solution? Then glazed partitions are your best bet. These are effective partitions in workplace environments, creating a division but maintaining a light and airy feel.
What is glazed wall partitioning?
Glazed wall partitioning is made from toughened glass or laminated safety glass. If you need extra privacy or simply want a bit of bespoke detailing, you can add your company logo or manifestations.
It’s also possible to integrate blinds into a glazed wall partition for the purpose of privacy and screening off an area as and when required. In addition, you can insert doors and windows.
Glazed partitions are a great option if you’re looking for a modern interior feel. Or how about adding timber frames for a timeless, classy look?
