In addition to a wide range of services provided as a construction company and groundworks contractors, UK Maintenance & Construction also undertakes projects as shop fitters. Although aspects of this service may share some similarities with property refurbishments, it is still very much a standalone service. However, as a building company with expertise in refurbishments, renovations and numerous other specialist areas, our shop and office fit outs in Kensington achieve results which consistently exceed expectations.
Our shop fitters perform fit outs in an array of commercial spaces, not only retail units. These include offices and leisure facilities. For the convenience of new and returning clients alike, we have outlined below the three primary fit out categories.
To discuss commercial fit outs, property refurbishments or any of the services we provide as a construction company and groundworks contractors, please call us on 01883 343 961.
Our shop fitters provide an end-to-end service that makes internal spaces in Kensington and the surrounding areas suitable for occupation. In most cases, this process starts with a concrete shell and finishes with a modern working environment, complete with shelving, furniture, compartments, break areas and toilets.
Shop and office fit outs fall into three main categories:
1. Shell and Core – These fit outs consist of a building with a basic internal framework. While the building may look complete from outside, the interior is nothing more than an empty shell. If you receive a property at this stage, expect very little by way of polished finishes and more in the way of concrete floors and exposed ceilings.
Our building company works in line with any specification to transform these spaces into your retail or office environment. As with the results we produce as groundworks contractors and property refurbishments specialists, we never settle for anything less than complete client satisfaction.
2. Category A (Cat A) – This category starts with a basic level of finish. This can include anything from raised floors to suspended ceilings as well as basic electrical and mechanical services. Despite this, Cat A spaces in Kensington will still have a basic finish to an industrial standard. Again, this is no problem for the shop fitters at our construction company.
Other features often included in Category A spaces include fire detection devices and smoke alarms as well as ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Our shop fitters have the ability to manage Cat A fit outs of any kind with a start-to-finish service.
3. Category B (Cat B) – Spaces in category B come in a finished condition ready for you and your staff to move into. Be it partitions, meeting rooms or break spaces, your space will already have taken shape. As such, your building company will have less focus on highly physical services like those we perform as groundworks contractors and property refurbishments experts.
Some of the most pressing issues facing shop fitters in Cat B projects include finishing the walls, floors and doors to suit the brand, as well as planning and installing the required IT infrastructure and appropriate number of power outlets.
When you choose UK Maintenance & Construction, you don’t only get time-served shop fitters, you receive the full backing of a construction company specialising in a wide range of services.
Like any reputable building company, we operate in the commercial sector with public liability and employer’s insurance.
