What Is A Shell and Core Fit Out?

In a modern-day office environment, it’s crucial to have your space optimised for your employees to create the best working environment possible.

Starting from scratch with your office design, known as a shell and core fit out, can really emphasise the functionality and the potential of a well-tailored office space. In this blog we will be exploring why you need a shell and core fit out and the benefits you and your business will obtain.

What is a Shell and Core Fit Out?

A shell and core fit out is known to be the initial stage of an ongoing fit out of a building which is focused on installing the essentials of any building. It involves the basic installation of the walls and the structure of the building, known as the “shell” of the building. It can include installing any external walls, roofs, flooring, and lights. A shell and core fit out means you are given the basic structure to a workspace. However, incorporating CAT A and CAT B fit outs into the process is where you can gain more than just the structure and customising the space even further and making the space ready for you to move in.

Why a Shell and Core Fit Out?

Opting for an office fit out that starts from scratch can have more of a positive impact as a tenant than just refurbishing the interior. It allows the tenant to customise the space so it fits the specific needs of the business and the employees, where it can optimise for productivity and creativity. Having full control over the decisions, the tenant is more likely to create a space that is more accurate to the vision they have in mind and the way their business works. Incorporating a shell and core fit out allows you to start with a blank canvas that can literally be designed floor to ceiling how you want it and we, Chameleon Business Interiors, can help you create an office that will facilitate your businesses success.
