5 Tips when Planning Partitioning

1. Determine the contractor’s strengths

Contractors are usually experts in certain fields and novices in other. Enquire about the contractor’s strengths and the tools they have on hand. Employ someone who can do the required work with excellence, instead of using your structure as a practice round.

2. Confirm timelines

Make sure the partitioning contractor keeps to a timeline that suits you. If you’re revamping office space, you don’t want workers to be without work space for too long. You may offer a bonus for work that’s finished early. This can serve as an excellent incentive to prevent time being wasted.

3. Pick materials for long term use

Partitioning can be manufactured from many materials. Don’t pick the cheapest one without considering the consequences. Raw wood and glass may be more expensive, but afford more class, privacy and durability than dry walling. It may be worth it to invest in these mediums for the long term.

4. Always keep security in mind

If contractors are working on your premises, you have a responsibility to keep assets and personal items safe. Don’t tempt contractors by leaving merchandise or wallets within easy grasp. Have a talk with your employees to keep vigilant throughout the construction time, so security breaches are kept to a minimum.

5. Ask for a portfolio

Apart from work done well, work should also be visually pleasing. Ask for a portfolio of previous work done by the contractor. It will give you an idea whether the quality of the overall look is in line with your expectations.
