We have a comprehensive process for office fit out at ODI

Our Process

Discover how each project unfolds

01

Introduction

Introduction

Introduction

First of all, a Project Director and Designer will visit you so we can all put a face to a name.

This gives us a chance to see your current workspace and discuss your objectives for the new office. We want to gain a real understanding of your vision, culture and workplace practices as well as your business plans so we can factor in future growth and expansion.

Of course, this is also an ideal opportunity for you to ask questions to make sure you fully understand the process.

Concept, design & spec

Concept, design & spec

Combining a space analysis with the information gathered at the initial meeting, we will establish a design brief, from we which we produce drawings and space plans. This is a chance for you to select from a number of different options of layout, spec, fixtures and fittings.

Mood boards, 3D design and samples ensure the finished design reflects your vision. If you need board-level approval for the project, we are happy to come and present to any stakeholders as required.

03

Due diligence

Due Diligence

Due diligence

If you choose ODI as your partner, the first step before signing the contract is to ensure that all the legal documents are in order. These can include Health & Safety assessments, landlord approvals, building control paperwork, fire regulations and all necessary insurances.

The next step is to ensure that you understand the timescale detailed in your project programme and are aware of the key dates and any responsibilities you have so that we complete every step on time.

Once all the documentation is in order and you are fully happy with the whole project, then we can sign contracts and the process begins.

Construction

Construction

Throughout the construction phase, it’s important to keep lines of communication open. You will meet your Project and Site Managers before the work begins and be in constant contact during the fit-out period.

Your business continuity is important so our aim is to make the fit-out run as smoothly as possible. We carefully plan every project so that each element happens in sequence and on time to prevent any delay to the schedule. Every fixture and fitting is checked throughout the project so we can deal with any problems as soon as they arise.

This attention to detail leaves you free to concentrate on running your day-to-day business, confident that we will take full responsibility for completing the job on time and within budget.

05

Completion & occupation

Completion & Introduction

Completion & occupation

The moment when we hand over your brand new office space and share your excitement at seeing the design come to life. Before you get to see the finished project, we put everything through a rigorous series of tests. Every door, tap, socket and switch is checked to make sure it’s working perfectly for you.

At handover, we welcome you into your new office with a small gift from the team at ODI. After a full debrief, we wish you well and leave you to enjoy your new workspace.

We provide you with an Operation and Maintenance manual should you need to refer to it in the future. Of course, if you have any questions, or if you just miss us too much; we are only ever a phone call away.
