The contract furnishing solution is highly practical and helps achieve a complete “turnkey” project, without having to worry about all the steps, from concept to creation.

When we have a location we have to make habitable, along with all the comforts, but we don’t have the organisational skills, or enough time to design, find the materials and furnish, then contract furnishing is the right path to take.

What do we mean by Contract Furnishing?

 

When we talk about contract furnishing solutions, we don’t mean a company that supplies furniture or is in charge of setting up, but of a much more extensive service.

Depending on the terms of the agreement, a contract furnishing service can include the design, creation and installation of furniture and accessories, along with everything that concerns the structure and comfort of the setting, such as colours, heating and lighting choices.

Carrying out such an extensive range of work requires great organisational skills, along with an overall vision of the project, with no details overlooked.

The contractor company, as those who operate in this sector are called, is, in fact, a contractor who uses trusted partners to complete all the items in the order.

What are the stages of contract furnishing?

The general contractor, i.e. those who provide the service while taking care of the project, must pay attention to all the steps involved in creating an ideal solution for the customer.

The main steps to complete the “turnkey” furnishing project are:

  • Design analysis, listening to the customer's requests
  • Determining a budget
  • Establishing the type of design and all the materials to use
  • Selecting companies and external craftsmen who will work in the various areas of the project
  • Determining delivery times

The importance of listening to the client’s requests seems obvious, but it’s often underestimated, creating complications and delays.

Designers must take into consideration all the specifications expressed by the customer to avoid issues that will ripple to all the other stages.

Making a clear financial plan, where all expense items are highlighted, helps limit the unexpected and not waste time in designing elements that will break the budget.

For instance, if the budget is limited, major renovations involving installations as well will not be considered.

Determining the type of design suited to the settings that require the furnishing is a key step. When what we want to accomplish is visually clear, we can go on to assess which materials to use and what kind of furnishing accessories can be added.

Simply put, when designing an industrial-style room, we’ll avoid large wooden cupboards and terracotta pots; instead, metal and glass will be used.

For a general contractor, having external partnerships with trusted companies and craftsmen is truly important. Anyone working on a joint project must share the same thoroughness, must ensure compliance with the established specifications, and ensure the quality of what they make.

Complying with delivery times is not easy to do, but it often makes a difference to the customer who looks forward to that moment for their investment to pay off.

To avoid delays, the construction manager must keep under control all the workers involved, the suppliers and the documentation necessary for the completion of the project.
