National interior fit-out specialists, Jephsons Shopfitters has published its “Successful Interior Fit-Out Planning & Management” guide.
The north Nottinghamshire based company has published the four-page brochure as an essential guide for Project Managers, franchisees and business owners who are planning an interior fit-out for venues in the food retail and hospitality sectors.
Drawing on nearly 50 years’ of interior fit out experience held by the Jephsons’ team, the guide covers a wide range of subjects from Construction, Design and Management Regulations through to the manufacturing capability of suppliers, insurance risks, health and safety regulations right down to what to do if there is not a toilet on site.
The guide is designed to be used as a check list for anyone planning or overseeing a project and can be used time and again as a valuable aide memoir. Copies have been provided to every existing Jephsons’ client as well as the large number of designers, architects and consultant Project Managers with whom Jephsons currently work. The company is also making it available to anyone that would like to work with Jephsons in future.
Jephsons’ Commercial Manager, Ian Jephson says the guide was designed to save everyone involved in an interior fit out project valuable time and money. “It struck us that we have a massive amount of experience in fitting out restaurants, bars and take-away food outlets. We have come across all sorts of problems that have hindered the smooth running of a project and know how to get around them – so, we thought, why not share that knowledge with others so that issues can be addressed before they become problems? Our guide provides a list of things that Project Managers need to be aware of when planning a project if they are not going to face delays and or significant added costs. For instance, has anyone checked whose insurance will cover a fractured water pipe in a shopping centre? How do you provide welfare facilities in the middle of London when there is no easy access to the site, and do you know whether or not the building being worked on has listed status, meaning it cannot be structurally altered? We have come across all these things and many more in our time. Thankfully, we know how to deal with them, but they have all led to delays that need not have happened with some forward thinking and awareness – which is what our guide is all about,” says Ian.
