Office Fit out at Morston Court
John Hodge Solicitors had previously occupied a prestigious location in Weston Super Mare and wanted to maintain the location but the property available next door was not big enough to accommodate all of the administration tasks that need to be carried out in a busy office.
The solution was to take on the building next door which was the old Choices video store and is covered in another new item. (click this link), and to take on a modern office which needed fitting out. This post relates to the fitting out of Morston Court.
Office Fit out work
The main building is rented, and so a requirement from landlords is that the partitioning needs to be demountable. The condition of the existing space was pretty good, with cabling and lighting already in place. We did have to re- cable all of the Cat5 data and voice sockets to the comms cabinet position, as well as re-position power sockets in the perimeter trunking so that there appeared in the correct places. All we had to do was to fit some partitioning as well as some storage wall for the main meeting room. We also had to build a small kitchen.
Why Demountable Partitioning?
- Demountable partitioning is tax efficient in that they are seen as movable items and so can be treated differently in writing down allowances in the accounts.
- We can also lease Demountable Partitioning as they are movable, this spreads the costs of having the work done as Demountable Partitions always cost more than customers think.
- Leasing of demountable partitioning is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
- Most landlords insist on demountable partitions being used for offices as it is much easier to take them out should the tenant renting the space leave for any reason. The benefit is that is saves making a huge amount of mess and destruction that would be need with a conventional stud and plasterboard constructed wall.
