Date posted: July 24, 2019

We are proud to announce the publication of our “Successful Interior Fit-Out Planning & Management” guide, which we have made available to all clients and partners.

The front page of our guide to interior fit-outs

The four-page brochure is an essential guide for Project Managers, franchisees and business owners who are planning an interior fit-out for venues in the food retail and hospitality sectors.

Drawing on nearly 50 years’ of interior fit out experience held by the Jephsons’ team, the guide covers a wide range of subjects from Construction , Design and Management Regulations through to the manufacturing capability of suppliers, insurance risks, health and safety regulations right down to what to do if there is not a toilet on site.

The guide is designed to be used as a check list for anyone planning or overseeing a project and can be used time and again as a valuable aide memoir. Copies have been provided to every existing Jephsons’ client as well as the large number of designers, architects and consultant Project Managers that Jephsons currently works with.

Jephsons’ Commercial Manager, Ian Jephson says the guide was designed to save everyone involved in an interior fit out project valuable time and money. “It struck us that we have a massive amount of experience in fitting out restaurants, bars and take-away food outlets. We have come across all sorts of problems that have hindered the smooth running of a project and know how to get around them – so, we thought, why not share that knowledge with others so that issues can be addressed before they become problems? Our guide provides a list of things that Project Managers need to be aware of when planning a project if they are not going to face delays and or significant added costs. For instance, has anyone checked whose insurance will cover a fractured water pipe in a shopping centre? How do you provide welfare facilities in the middle of London when there is no easy access to the site, and do you know whether or not the building being worked on has listed status, meaning it cannot be structurally altered? We have come across all these things and many more in our time. Thankfully, we know how to deal with them, but they have all led to delays that need not have happened with some forward thinking and awareness – which is what our guide is all about,” says Ian.

"Coffee Lovers Group has been a Costa Coffee franchisee for several years now and we have won many awards for our stores. Our teams pride themselves in providing a memorable experience to every customer. However, providing a first-class service is not just about making sure the coffee is great, it’s also about ensuring we maintain high standards throughout the whole customer journey. That is why I have retained Jephsons for our refurbishments and interior fit-outs. Just like our store teams, Jephsons’ fit-out teams always pay attention to detail and are focussed on making sure quality is key to completing projects. They have a team of talented individuals from whom I appreciate receiving ongoing suggestions on how to improve store fit outs and reduce long term maintenance issues. They manufacture the fittings themselves which gives me confidence in their joinery and finishing. If you are a franchisee looking for an interior fit-out company who can deliver good quality at a reasonable price with great after service, then you should be talking to Jephsons.
