Planning a Refurbishment

For any business looking to carry out an office refurbishment or commercial fit-out, there is plenty to consider – the available budget, obtaining permission and which office refurbishment company to use.

First of all, let’s establish why your business needs an office refurbishment.

Do you need to reconfigure your layout?

If your current layout is not working for you, or you need a quiet space to work away from the hustle and bustle of the busy office environment, then office partitioning can give you the flexibility to create a separate work zone.

Office partitioning can be installed relatively quickly and comes in a variety of finishes – fully glazed, partially glazed or solid wall. Alternatively, you can have the best of both worlds with moving partition walls. These come with either concertina, suspended or sliding wall panels. There are various acoustic properties available too for added privacy.

Does your current interior require an update?

A drab interior will do nothing to inspire your workforce or impress your visitors, but a fresh new office refurbishment that reflects your corporate branding and embodies your business’ core values certainly will.

Are you relocating?

This being so, you’ll need a complete office fit-out that has been well planned from the early stages. JBH Refurbishments provides office relocation support for businesses in London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Essex. This service ensures your new office fit-out is thoroughly planned and completed in plenty of time for your move, ensuring a smooth transition from old to new.

Planning a change of use?

Perhaps you are looking to introduce new technology, a showroom facility or build a separate workspace within an industrial unit. Whatever your plans, we can provide all the refurbishment services necessary – office partitioning, technical support, building works, M&E services, suspended ceilings, decoration, furniture and all the finishing touches.

Budgeting for your office refurbishment

Before considering undertaking any major refurbishment you should consider how much you have to spend. Fortunately, tax relief is available on office refurbishments and commercial fit-outs. This is something worth exploring when undertaking any alterations to your business premises. We also offer leasing options on office refurbishments through our finance partners. You can find out more about this on our Finance and Leasing page.


Depending on the work you plan to undertake, you will almost certainly need to obtain either planning permission from the council or permission from your landlord. After we have completed site inspection and discussed your office refurbishments plans, we can provide the advice you need to proceed.

Choosing the right Office Refurbishment Company

When undertaking any building or refurbishment work, it is absolutely vital you choose a reputable office refurbishment company, one with a proven track record and is willing to provide plenty of testimonials, with contact details from previous clients. They must also have Health and Safety accreditations and appropriate insurances.

Of course we don’t wish to bias, but at JBH Refurbishments, we are confident that we offer the best possible commercial refurbishment service in London, Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Essex. Therefore, we encourage our clients to read all of our testimonials (individually supplied on headed paper) and make contact to discuss the work undertaken.

Due to the number of school refurbishments and hospital fit-outs we carry out, JBH Refurbishments ensure all of our site operatives hold up-to-date DBS certificates.

Our priority is for our clients to feel confident their office refurbishment is in good hands!
