No.1 Commercial & Office Fitouts Brisbane



Office Renovation Cost

A lot of different things can factor into an office renovations cost, these factors must be taken into account when you are budgeting for your work and deciding what areas and elements you would like to focus on the most.

Set the Priorities

Some aspects of a renovation will be more important to some businesses than others. For example, a high end consultancy could be more interested in the aesthetic appeal of its new office design, whereas a logistics company that takes multiple deliveries and orders everyday may be more concerned with practical aspects featured in their redesign. Therefore, it’s important that you focus on what aspects will be most important to you and what you can afford to do.


Reusing some of your old, better-condition furniture in your new design can be a great way of saving money. Simply sort through what would not only work in your new office but also what isn’t too damaged or worn out to be used again.


The complexity of your requested design will also play a key role in determining price, as the more complex and demanding a task is the longer it take; meaning that you will lose money both in paying for a renovator’s time and for lost time at your premises. There are other reasons why you may not want an overly complicated design in your office and one of them being that it can be just plain distracting for your employees. This is why the plain walls and desks look with maybe some interesting ergonomic furniture in a minimalist style has become so popular in recent years as it isn’t distracting and gives your office a clean and professional look.

Looking for Suppliers?

Using a local supplier will not only cut down on delivery costs but also actual item costs, items that require being shipped from abroad will often times be priced in a different currency (which can be good or bad depending on which side of the graph you are on) and that you will have to pay the astronomical shipping fees as well as any taxes that would be applied at customs.

We hope that you’ve gotten a bit of a better idea of how to gauge a good price and budget for an office renovation. If you need a quote drawn up, get in contact with us today for a free online quotation.


Building Services: Handy Tips for End of Lease Tenancy Make Goods

Are you about to move out of your commercial premises? A ‘make good clause’ in your tenancy agreement may require you to leave your building in perfect condition.

Here is a quick guide to help you move out of your leased space without frustrations or surprises.

Check the lease agreement

While some make good clauses can be vague, others will give detailed instructions on what is expected.

At a minimum, on termination of your lease, you must:

● Ensure all damage and wear and tear is fully repaired
● Repaint the walls
● Demolish and remove all partitions
● Remove furniture
● Remove all joinery and fixtures
● Return all electrical cabling to its original state
● Remove signage
● Ensure all standard finishes are restored
● Make sure the building is spotlessly clean

List the changes

Over time, you may have upgraded or made renovations to your commercial property. Make a list of everything you have changed in the property, including:

● Electrical Powerpoints
● Lighting
● Fittings such as shelves
● Partitions
● Drapes and blinds
● Air-conditioning and fans
● Heating

Check with the landlord

Talk with your landlord to understand their expectations. Sometimes the landowner will view the updates you’ve made to the commercial property as improvements and allow some renovations to remain.

Hire a professional

When moving from your commercial property, it’s best to seek assistance from a professional building servicescompany that has expertise in make goods.

At Supernova Building Services, we specialise in helping Brisbane businesses return their commercial property to a pristine state. We can help ensure you don’t miss anything that you agreed to in your lease and perform all the restoration work for you. Contact us today for more information.

Tips for Commercial Office Fitouts

A well-designed commercial interior fit out can have a huge impact on your employees’ well being, morale, productivity and innovation. Here are some key things to consider when planning your commercial office fitoutdesign.

Plan colour schemes strategically

Ideally, your office’s interior should be designed to reflect the unique values and character of your business. The colour tones you choose will impact both your employees’ mood and productivity in the day-to-day, and ultimately shape how visiting clients perceive your business.

For best results, steer clear of pure white or off-white paint on the walls as this suggests austerity, coldness, and lack of personality. Instead, opt for calming neutral colours that convey an atmosphere of professionalism and tranquility, while promoting productivity. This could include shades of blue, green and grey. In spaces where you would like to encourage collaboration and creativity, select lively, energetic colours like light red, orange and green.

Promote purposeful movement

Studies have proven that organisations that embrace workplace wellbeing enjoy increased retention and stronger loyalty and dedication with healthier and happier employees.

One of the easiest ways to promote employee health in the workplace is to provide them with opportunities to move about the office through their daily work. Ideas include:

  • Stand up meeting spaces
  • Sit/stand workstations
  • Flexible modular elements for interactive workshops

Create a clutter free yet personalised environment

To encourage efficiency and improve productivity, ensure that office spares are regularly cleaned and free of clutter. Make sure collaborative spaces are open and neat, as visual mess can negatively impact productivity. With a clutter free office environment, your employees will feel more efficient and empowered.

Use stylish, ergonomic, personalised furniture

To improve employee health and productivity, invest in ergonomic, personalised office furnishings. This will reduce the risk of back and shoulder injuries in your employees.

Furniture to improve worker health could include:

  • Comfortable, adjustable desk chairs
  • Adjustable stand/sit desks
  • Adjustable computer monitors

Consider lighting and air quality

Lighting can go a long way in creating the perfect atmosphere in commercial office fitouts. To reduce eye strain and discomfort for employees while working, invest in:

  • Overhead lighting that uses filters
  • Adjustable blinds on windows

Encourage workers to angle their computer monitors away from lights and windows to decrease glare.

Fresh air can also do wonders for productivity. For example, an open air office that allows for open windows, air purifiers or an ozone replacement machine will improve the morale and daily well being of employees.
