Actual Business Ideas


Have a look around your office. Is it looking a bit tired, dated and in need of some serious TLC? A new working environment is a good way of injecting life, energy and motivation into the team. After all, we spend a large portion of our waking lives at work so it’s only fair to make it a pleasant environment.

While an office refurb may seem like a good idea, the reality is it can be very disruptive to the working environment. Here a few ways to cope with the disruption of construction in your office.

Work from home

While your physical space is being refurbed, there’s no reason to shut down production. If your business is e-commerce or online based, you can use current software and technology for your workers to still get their work done remotely.

Swing space

If moving out altogether is not an option (although looking into serviced office spaces in the short term might be feasible for you), then you may have to utilise a swing space or area that you can work away from the construction area. Like a child’s puzzle toy that involves moving the squares around to complete the picture, this is all about strategy. You need to have an empty space free to move into so that you can make the next move during the refurb known as a swing space.

Get help

Companies that specialise in project managing fit outs and refurbs have dealt with all the problems confronting you before, and have solutions for all or most of them. Rather than you and your team wasting time and energies handling the logistics, let the professionals do it, freeing up your time to do what you do best: take care of business.

Deal with waste

Space is often the key issue when refurbishing an office space and waste can accumulate in the construction area. Thetford International Commercial Waste Compactors will allow you to get the waste products of the refurb out of the way and compacted so that you have some space to play with.

The key to a successful refurb is always to manage the disruption well. You can’t escape it, but with good planning you can certainly minimise its impact so you can get back to business as usual.
