When a business leaves its existing premises there can be substantial costs involved in the 'make good' requirements in the original lease contract. Often this cost is underestimated or not considered and businesses can find themselves feeling the pinch right at a time when they can least afford to.
Affordable Defits can liaise with your landlord, centre management or facilities manager to facilitate the whole make-good process for you. We can work with their requirements to ensure their obligations are adhered to and landlords expectations and lease obligations are met.
Affordable Defits have the know how and experience to get your make-good works done quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. We use only qualified tradespeople and are fully insured for your peace of mind.
Returning the floor to the original state, most often a concrete slab, means proper cleaning and leveling to make sure it’s ready for new floor coverings. The first step is removing all current existing floor coverings, which will be followed up by an assessment to determine the extent of what further works are required.
In most cases, a light grind is all that is required to remove the glue residue however this may need to be followed by floor levelling works using a self leveller to ensure that the original concrete slab is completely flat. This is essential as to make sure that future floor coverings do not suffer any damage, last longer and are aesthetically pleasing.
Defit jobs almost always require some sort of patch and paint works, the extent of which will be determined by your lease obligations. This could include, but not be limited to:
With our team's expertise and extensive demolition experience, your tenancy agreement will be fully respected and the office space will be restored to the desired condition in no time.
Since branding is a big part of running a business of any kind, that means that signage, decals and frostings are ever-present in our work areas, both indoors and outdoors. Their removal as part of the Make Good process must be handled with great care, as both to avoid damaging the property and for our safety.
We have a great deal of experience with removing decals and frosting without damaging glass through proven methods as well as across all surfaces they might be encountered on. Likewise, we’re well-equipped to remove signage on the top of buildings, shop front canopies and signage on internal walls. We make sure to complete the work without causing damage to both the exterior and interior of the building while properly managing possible hazardous waste like neon transformers, which can be present in signage. Your peace of mind will be secured throughout the process as we’re also fully capable of dealing with councils where required for footpath closures.
The demolition process due to the nature of the work will leave you with quite a bit of debris to dispose of. Regardless of whether you're looking to re-fit or leave your tenancy after the demolition is done, a site clean is an essential part of wrapping things up.
Performing a site clean involves disposal of rubbish & debris, sweeping, vacuuming, dust management, cleaning glazing as well as wiping all present surfaces. Worth noting that something as simple as cleaning dust is not as simple as it seems- dust particles during cleaning can set off an unwanted fire alarms, which is why proper smoke detector isolations are required. Affordable Defits keeps all of this in mind, and minute details like these is exactly why a good choice of contractors is paramount.
We will meticulously carry out the cleaning of any and all rubbish and debris, make your premise spotless & secure while also keeping the environment in mind at all times, as Affordable Defits is a member of the Green Council of Australia.
