Shopfitting in Glasgow

Are you looking for high quality Glasgow Shopfitters?

At Builders Glasgow we have a dedicated team of shopfitters that can create, alter, renovate or refurbish any shop, retail unit (including hair salons, beauty studios & nail bars), hospitality premises (pubs, bars, restaurants & hotels), office or public sector building (health or education). Our efficient, experienced operatives can strip-out and refit an existing premises to whatever design requirements you may have or fit out a new build premises for whatever purpose.

These are challenging times for every business and across all sectors of the economy so firms are finding that they need to redouble their efforts to attract customers into their sites. To customers, a tired and dated shop, salon or restaurant conveys an impression of a business that does not care about itself or its clients. The reality is that no-one wishes to patronise a run-down establishment whether to shop, drink or dine.

In the wider economy, it is equally important both private and public sector organisations that their office interiors show an efficient, clean and organised face to their clients and partners in order to foster a feeling of trust and impart a sense of professionalism. A confused, disjointed or well-worn office may can be considered as a reflection of your organisation itself.

It is vital that your premises – shop, salon, studio, pub, club, bar, restaurant, hotel or office – shows your business (or organisation) in its best light. Refitting a shop (or other site) can help to revitalise your business by actively attracting people into a welcoming new environment and this increased footfall should (all things being equal) result in more sales.

Invest in the future of your business and let Builders Glasgow transform your commercial premises using our expert fit out, shop fitting or alteration services.

Shop fitting FAQ

Here is a selection of the most common questions that are put to us by potential customers regarding our garage conversions in Glasgow:
We appreciate that shopfitting work can require flexibility in respect of when work is carried out so we work with our clients to match their needs. We typically work standard construction industry hours – weekdays 8:30-4:30pm – depending on location/travel time required but should you require premises to be fitted out outside of these hours then please advise us and we can discuss alternative hours and quote on that basis.
We would not recommend shop-fitting as a DIY project, no matter how skilled you consider yourself. A commercial premises is governed by a range of health & safety legislation (covering the likes of trip hazards and fire safety) plus there are the requirements of commercial insurance policies to consider. Builders Glasgow firmly believes that shop fitting or office fitting out is a job best left to the professionals. If you are on a limited budget then please tell us and we can advise on the solutions available for you.
Unfortunately we cannot give guide prices online or over the phone (you should question any firm that does). This is primarily because shopfitting or office refurbishment requirements can vary widely depending on the client’s needs and the site involved. An outline cost estimate can only be provided after a site visit where we view your premises & discuss your ideas, needs & budget. A quotation can only be given based on a set of (approved) architect’s drawings. Our final quote provides a break down of all items included in our price.
No. Before you engage a shopfitter it is important for you to think carefully about your desired “look & feel” and the nature of your business, your premises’ layout, operational workflow and staff and visitor flow through the site and draw up at least an outline plan covering the changes you want to make in order to crystallize your ideas. We are happy to undertake an initial site visit when you have an outline plan and offer limited input. For larger premises, we would recommend that you engage an architect or interior designer specialising in such work or we can put you in touch with an architect we work with.
To offer you full peace of mind, our shopfitting workmanship is covered by a 1 year guarantee (from date of completion).
No. We source, supply and schedule all trades required to renovate your premises (as per our final quote) which saves you time, effort & harassment.

This is a complex question which depends on the nature of your site, your business sector, the hours worked by us (and those when you intend trading), the extent of the works involved and applicable health & safety legislation. Where you require to continue trading whilst we revamp an existing shop or unit then please discuss this with us up front.
