Some examples of work that may be required as part of a make good or de-fit include:
Strip-out joinery and bulkheads
Bulkheads may be installed onto a ceiling to add an extra design feature and may need to be removed at the end of a lease. In addition, any built-in joinery items that were added after the lease was signed will also need to be stripped out and removed.
Remove walls, partitions, doors, and windows
Any doors, windows and office partitions that have been added into your commercial space will have to be removed with the walls / windows patched and plastered to bring it back to the original condition.
Removal of decals / frosting
Window decals or glass frosting applied to the base building (i.e. main entrance door) will need to be removed. Future Fitouts can ensure the decals are removed carefully and the surface is left clean and clear.
Uplift and removal of floor coverings
If any carpet or vinyl has been laid in your premises, it will need to be removed as part of a make-good, this also includes removal of any glues / adhesives that were applied at the time of laying the floor coverings.
Removal, decommission and light fittings
During a fitout lights may have been reconfigured to suit the space with additional rooms/walls etc., at the end of a lease these light fittings may be required to be reconfigured again to suit an ‘open plan’ layout. In addition, any lights including feature lights or overhanging pendant lights will need to be decommissioned and removed as part of a make good / de-fit.
If any of your walls throughout the fitout were painted, the landlord may request that walls are returned to the original colour scheme or painted a neutral colour. Future Fitouts is able to colour-match and repaint any walls and ceilings as necessary.
Dismantle any fixtures and fittings
Any items that have been fixed to your premises will be removed as part of the make- good / de-fit services. Future Fitouts will patch any holes in the wall and paint to ensure a seamless finish.
