A great article written by Alisa Newey, the designer at Renewdesign, who speaks about how choosing the right shopfitter can save you money and why some clients hesitate to choose a shopfitter only to have it end up costing them more!
Choosing the Right Shopfitter
Some of my clients are wary of using a shopfitter because they believe they can spend less if they manage the fit out themselves. This makes them reluctant to commit to working with a shopfitter upfront even though, in my experience, their assumptions are rarely correct.
As a business owner, one of your scarcest resources is time. Although paying a shopfitter to manage your new store fit out on your behalf may appear to be a large expense, it is important to view this as part of the overall picture. The role of a good shopfitter is to provide expert feedback and advice on costs and how buildable your design is. This allows you to make informed decisions through the design and fit out process. Also, once the fit out of your new store begins, your shopfitter will manage the timeframes, subcontractors and costs to deliver the completed fit out by the agreed opening date.
