Category A & Category B Fit-Out

Brazier Interiors specialise in both Category A and Category B fit-out, which one is suitable for your needs?

Let us explain…

Clients of office fit-out contractors like Brazier Interiors tend to be end-users or owners of commercial buildings and are not necessarily experienced in construction.

Consequently, Brazier Interiors experienced teams that can deliver to fixed time, cost and quality criteria with minimum direction or management from the client.

The nature of any fit-out project will be broadly governed by five key considerations:

1. Who does the client organisation serve and what are its corporate objectives?
2. How does the organisation function and how is it structured?
3. What is the condition of the base building?
4. What is the client prepared to spend?
5. When is the space required for occupation?

Types of fit-out

Shell and core

The office floor areas are left as a shell ready for category A fit-out.
