Make Goods & De-Fits with Future Fitouts
Future Fitouts has performed countless number of make goods and de-fits across Brisbane ensuring our clients meet any lease agreements. The works involved in a make good or de-fit will depend on the requirements stipulated in your lease agreement with the landlord. Generally, the lease will ask for the premises to be put back to the condition at the time the lease was signed, prior to any fitout works being carried out. Future Fitouts is happy to review your lease for the make-good requirements and provide a quote for the services.
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.
Repaint walls / ceilings
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.
Repair walls, plaster and touch-up paints
With the continual day-to-day use of your space, it is common to find scuffs, marks or other types of damage on walls during your occupation. We will identify any areas that require repair and will repair, plaster and touch-up the paintwork.
Services in particular air-conditioning may have been reconfigured during the fitout to suit the layout of your space. However, once the lease is finished, there is often a requirement to decommission services and make-good or reconfigure back to an open plan layout – ready for the next tenant to move in.
Future Fitouts will remove all rubbish and debris as part of the make-good / de-fit and will ensure a final clean is carried out – meeting all lease obligations and presentable for the final inspection.
