How can we transform our workspace?
It’s a question many businesses are asking as they embrace the new reality of hybrid working, where cost remains a big factor, and making sure you’re only paying for what you need. Yet equally, so is utility and ensuring the hybrid workplace is designed to reflect how people want to use it. As well as the culture you want to inspire. To help with finding the right answer, Form offers a range of services that extend to every aspect of workspace design and fit-out, including comprehensive feasibility studies.
As a result, we can perform many critical activities. From reviewing your current premises and identifying potential cost savings, to detailing options for refreshing any space or fitting out new premises. It’s your ambition, and our goal is simply to help you achieve it.Request a call back
What design options are available?
Office redesigns are all about exploring what’s possible. That means understanding all the space available, and how it’s being utilised. Before imagining an environment that’s better suited to your people’s ever-evolving needs.
For example, a careful blend of open plan collaboration hubs and private meeting rooms, supported by the right lighting and acoustics, may be the key to improved productivity. What matters is having access to ideas, alongside the office design and fit-out solutions needed to turn them into reality.

Refurbish or relocate?
Making the decision to stay and refurbish or go and relocate is never easy. On the one hand, you could find a cheaper, more suitable, and convenient location. A site that also adds to your prestige and market reputation. On the other, you could use a lease break or rent review to negotiate better terms. Enabling you to push ahead with a bold workspace redesign. Where Form can help is in detailing all the factors involved. This will include a feasibility study and a cost analysis of all the different workspace design and fit-out options.
How much does an office fit-out cost?
Obviously, price is determined by size and specification, with most office fit-out contractors working to a cost per sq. ft calculation. That said, it helps to have an approximate figure on which to base your future plans, which is why we suggest the following cost framework (exclusive of furniture costs):
|Cost per sq. ft.
|Cat B fit out cost
|£35 – £40
|£45 - £55
At Form, we’ll typically conduct an onsite visit to verify all the details prior to confirming actual costs. In addition, any estimate will assume that power distribution and mechanicals – heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) – are also in good working order. All of which we can assess in-person during the visit. Resulting in us presenting you with a clear picture of what needs to be done and why.
“We are thrilled with our new office space and cannot wait to have everyone returning to the office to experience the new hybrid working pattern.”
