office renovation

Postby x9200 » Tue, 05 Sep 2017 7:33 am

I am looking for a recommendation of some contractor to do office renovation work. Small office, a few partition walls to be raised, a few demolished, flooring to be done, some repairs of false ceiling boards. Basically a small office to be moved to a new location.

Can somebody please (preferably a regular of this board) recommend someone?

Is this to restore the office to its original state as you received it?

I was under the impression that you have to leave the office/building as you received it.

So what goes up , must come down and what was removed must be put back.

It's about moving an office to another location so it's both: restoring the old one and adapting the new.

A small office, <700sqf.

i've last used him... in early 2016 to move out from and restore my former office when my tenancy ended.

William 9150 1952

he may or may not still be nursing a bad back, but his rates are good and he's always treated me fairly.

he might be your man if 1. you don't mind talking loudly to him/repeating your instructions (he's not a pensioner but he's gone a bit deaf from renovation works without H&S) and can 2. give him clear instructions.

Still looking?

Your's sounds EXACTLY what I did moving into my current place 5yrs ago.

Nope, all done already, but thanks for asking.
