Consumers across industries are looking for businesses that offer quality services quickly, hence inclining toward fit-out companies that produce their own designs and products writes Sherif Nagy, General Manager of THE FITOUT
Interiors and ambience have transformed over the years, influencing one’s mood and behavior in both personal and commercial settings. As a result, consumers are becoming extremely conscious and particular when it comes to designing spaces or seeking assistance from designers.
In the Middle East, buyers are on the lookout for spaces that encompass a wide range of designs with intricate details, along with a cozy ambience. Today, designing an interior involves pushing the boundaries and exploring novel designs, patterns, and layouts, making way for fresh and innovative ideas in the market. Consequently, consumers from a variety of industries are now looking for businesses that offer quality services quickly, hence inclining toward fit-out companies that produce their own designs and products.
The success of a fit-out company today relies on how well it fulfills the needs of its clients and ensures value at the same time, as customers are willing to spend on their expectations. Over the years, several experts in the field have observed people’s preferences and learned how different industries have different requirements. The ‘design & build’ approach, in which the same organisation takes responsibility for both the design and execution, is one of the most widely used techniques for corporate redevelopment.
In addition, saving time and money on procurement is one of the most significant factors and advantages for fit-out firms, further allowing them to meet tight deadlines and facilitate better coordination. This has been made possible in large by the use of the latest 3D CAD and BIM Design software, which is leveraged by many fit-out companies to provide clients with a full visual design concept.
As a result, customers are searching for businesses that are passionate about great designs, aesthetically pleasing finishes, and the pursuit of excellence. This has resulted in the transformation of many firms, which have adopted the ‘design & build’ model to transform and tailor their interior offerings to better suit the requirements of clients.
Every industry, including retail, food and beverage, commercial spaces, and real estate, has seen an increase in competition as companies race to realise their potential growth. The first step towards achieving this is to create attractive, comfortable spaces that encourage customer growth. In response to this vision, fit-out companies offer more to clients who wish to decorate their leased space with fewer costs, quicker turnaround times, and more flexible design options.
Having a multi-skilled dynamic workforce and wide range of in-house services, which include flooring, ceiling, partition, joinery, upholstery, as well as electrical and mechanical services, ensure that designs and products meet the highest standards of quality and give fit-out firms an upper hand.
Today, the design & build model is known among experts as a highly collaborative, fully integrated process focused on trust, mutual respect, teamwork, innovation, and creative problem solving which has led to the current increase in demand from clients.
