Foundations first: Cat A fit-outs to build your dream workspace

Commercial Office Cat A Fit Out Company

Cat A is when we prepare the main fabric of the building and includes basic finishing. Perhaps to prep a building for new tenants or in preparation for further development works.

Our commercial office fit out service is targeted at businesses who are looking to transform their workspace for the better.

We may approach your project in varying ways depending on your goals and ambitions. As commercial fit out contractors, ReSpace will work closely with you to transform your interior spaces for the better.

Laying the groundwork for your business vision

Cat A office fit outs provide a blank canvas for businesses looking to tailor their workspace to specific needs and brand identity. This foundational level of fit-out includes the essential elements such as raised floors, suspended ceilings, basic mechanical and electrical services, and fire detection systems, setting the stage for a customised interior design and layout.

At ReSpace Ltd, our expertise in Cat A fit outs ensures that your office space is not only functional and compliant with building regulations but also primed for the next phase of personalisation. We focus on creating a versatile and adaptable environment that can evolve with your business, offering a perfect blend of practicality and potential for future creativity and branding

We have used Respace for many projects over the years ranging from a simple lick of paint here and there through to full office fit-outs. They take pride in their work and demonstrate impressive attention to detail from the planning stage right through to completion and handover. Communication via project management is always spot on and the guys on-site are always hard working, flexible, professional and friendly.

Ben and his staff at Re-space were really professional to work with. I was looking at a standard fit out of a high street commercial space. They were able to provide me with solutions for the ventilation system, lighting, air conditioning and acoustic barrier to keep the fit out costs within budget. Their experience and expertise was very reassuring and their quote came with a comprehensive breakdown of the work they would carry out accompanied by basic 2D CAD drawings of the what the space would look like after . Professional, courteous and punctual. Would use them again.

Having contracted for ReSpace for many years I can honestly say that I have always found them to be fair, honest and respectful towards customers and myself. Any interactions with them have always been prompt and they are very accommodating towards a fair work life balance. They are very dynamic in their approach towards jobs and supportive should changes need to be made.

ReSpace has recently finished a reconfiguration project in our office and we are very pleased with their professionalism and services. From the beginning, Ben and the team have been very supportive and helpful. Ben is a great professional and easy to communicate with. We always had quick responses and Ben made us feel more confident with the entire process - successfully helping us to get the permissions we needed. We would definitely work with ReSpace again!
