Design & Build can be defined as allowing a single company to take care of every aspect of your office interior fit out; from planning permission and interior design to construction and move-in day.
Dealing with just the one supplier brings immediate and ongoing benefits, the reason being because almost all the work is done in-house with one integrated and committed team who are totally passionate about your project.
Perhaps most importantly, an original part of the design & build process is parallel working, which helps move forward the finish date of projects. This is because in the more traditionally used methods the designer and contractors are individual sprinters in a relay, who have to pass on the baton before the next contractor is able to start.
Design & build contractors are able to complete tasks so that as many as possible can run at the same time, which helps the project complete on time. So with design & build everybody can be sprinting simultaneously, integrating precisely to ensure a seamless process.
At OEG we embrace every aspect of every area on the commercial workspace.
From reception area to disabled toilet, from window blinds to air-conditioning we take charge of everything that is required to bring your working environment in line with your aspirations.
The scope of an office fit-out can vary hugely and is dependent on a number of things. It’s difficult to pull them together in a simple list but day to day we get involved in the following works:-
- Partitioning – fixed and demountable
- Ceilings and lighting
- Mechanical and electrical
- Decoration and joinery
- Office furniture and fittings
- Audio visual
- Air-conditioning and heating
We carry out such works within office environments right across the UK, incorporating:-
- Reception areas
- Open plan offices
- Executive suites
- Conference and training facilities
- Meetings rooms
- Canteen and dining areas
- Breakout areas
- Third space
- Common areas
- Washroom and kitchen facilities
With a deep understanding of how the workplace functions and the ever evolving needs of the working population we work with specialist concepts such as:-
- Agile working
- Workplace acoustics
- Flexible spaces
- ‘WOW’ concepts
- Office ergonomics
- Workplace optimisation
At OEG we believe that project management can make or break a job.
For this very reason we appoint a dedicated project manager to each project giving a single point of contact for the duration of the works. The project manager will keep their finger on the pulse, providing continual progress assessments and inform the client of all that’s happening.
Any unexpected issues will be reported along with an explanation of how they are going to be resolved.
The final works are checked over in fine detail in order to ensure the new interior space is handed over snag-free.

Like you, we want people to be excited about going to work not just because it looks great, but because the atmosphere is comfortable and inspiring - a place where they will thrive.
When your employees feel this way, they’ll be at their most productive – and this means that your organisation can thrive as well.Smart process

“The staff couldn’t wait to come to work on the Monday after we moved in. We socialize together after a long day and have somewhere to celebrate on successful days.”

“I can’t believe the difference our new office has made, everybody loves coming to work and we all feel enthused. The whole design of the fit-out has exceeded expectations.”
“From the very first ‘touch’ with OEG we were impressed. The office refurbishment is quite simply stunning. We would recommend OEG to anyone.”
