The office designers at MPL Interiors have fit outs down to a fine art and can schedule works so you can keep trading with minimum disruption.
While an office refurbishment fills many with excitement and optimism, there are some logistics that can have a real impact on your business. Here we discuss how you can keep trading throughout a fit out.
A game of two halves
We will visit your workplace and assess whether we can carry out our refurbishment works in two halves – working on one half while staff are condensed into the other, with a full suite of data and utility services retained. Our installers can then perform a swap with your staff to complete the refit of the other side of the premises. This approach means businesses can open for their usual working hours, albeit in a smaller space.
Hide, not seek
If your business places heavy emphasis on the customer journey, we can relocate front doors and reception areas to create continuity, as well as screen off messy or exposed areas to preserve your brand image.

Out of hours
In some cases, it is possible for our installers to work evenings and weekends in order for a company work undisturbed during the working week or if sectioning off part of the office is not possible.
Pop up somewhere else
If major structural work is to take place – installations or alternations that involve excessive noise, dirt and disruption - it’s possible for MPL to set up a ‘pop up’ office in a temporary location away from the site. For many businesses with a street-facing window, we turn a relocation into an advantage by applying ‘coming soon’ graphics to the premises being refurbished. These graphics can detail what is happening and who is taking over the space, if it has a new occupant. This often creates a sense of anticipation and acts as self-propelling PR.
