What are the Different Types of Interior Fit Out?
There are as many types of interior fit out as there are spaces that can be transformed; commercial fit-out, office fit out, retail, hospitality, residential, healthcare, industrial, educational and more. There are also two main phases of interior fit out: Category A (CAT A) and Category B (CAT B). CAT A fit outs involve the basic structural elements and infrastructure of a space, such as walls, floors, ceilings, plumbing, electrics, HVAC and lighting. CAT B fit outs are more detailed and customisable, focusing on the specific needs and preferences of the occupants in terms of aesthetics and décor, layout and design. An interior fit out is best carried out by a professional fit out contractor such as Vanguard who will lead you through the process:

What’s the Difference between an Interior Fit Out and Refurbishment?
Both a refurbishment and an interior fit out involve modifying the interior of a building but there are distinct differences in the processes. An interior fit out is focused on the design and furnishing of an internal building space, and the focus is on customising and optimising the existing interior space to meet specific requirements. Whereas refurbishment involves more extensive changes to the structure and systems of a building. This can include repairs, replacements, and upgrades to elements such as the roof, facade, HVAC systems, and plumbing. Refurbishment aims to revitalise a building to a better condition, generally with the intent to extend the life of the building or adapt it to new functions.
Vanguard interior refurbishment services focus on delivering spaces optimised for business profitability.
