Renovating Workspaces in Budget


Planning an office renovation can often be a very tedious and stressful process. Along with designing a workspace that best meets your team’s requirements, another important factor is to create a realistic and achievable budget and maximize savings were possible. There is a fine line when setting a budget for an office refurbishment project – too high and your project isn’t realistically affordable, too low and you face the consequences of sacrificing quality and functionality.
One tip for achieving a high quality and cost-effective office fit-out is sourcing materials from the right suppliers. Aluform has always strived to provide all our customers with the best quality products at competitive prices, allowing them to complete their projects to an optimum standard.
Here are five simple ways you can reduce the cost of your office fit-out project using Aluform products:

1. Aluform’s Budget-Friendly Partition Systems:

The initial stage of any office refurbishment is to analyse the space requirements and design the workspace according to those needs. Consideration should be given to a balance between design and budget requirements. With the idea of ‘Dynamic Workspaces’ expected to gain popularity, designers are trying to adopt more hybrid office designs for co-working and team collaboration. ‘Dynamic Workspaces’, which incorporate the benefits of traditional closed offices with open plan spaces, are the most cost-effective and practical solution. Aluform offers two-budget friendly partition systems, Series 1000 25mm Edge Profile Partition Suite and Series 45 Lineation Suite, which can help achieve a ‘Dynamic Workspace’ design in a budget. Aluform stocks our aluminium partition sections in Natural Anodised, a finish which is less expensive that powdercoating and offers a high quality and durability.
Series 1000 25mm Edge Profile Partition System: With a 25mm edge profile, this partition series is a more budget-friendly option and creates a slimmer appearance. It can be used with 64mm or 51mm stud and can be interchanged with Series 1000 Front and Double Glaze to offer three different glazing options.

This system provides options for both 25mm and 50mm edge profile and can be used for efficient internal glazing for any wall configuration. Slim profile designs help in creating a minimalistic design look.
