Interior design of offices: what does a general contractor do?
A general contractor (or ‘turnkey contractor’) undertakes all the activities required for a construction project specified by the construction contract. We at coneon can take on your entire office construction project, from planning to furnishing and equipment; involving work on floors, walls and ceilings, including all electrical installation work for lighting and climate control systems, for instance. It goes without saying that we coordinate, monitor and instruct all tradespeople entrusted with the execution of construction work.
Think. Office planning and design.
Before implementation comes planning, during which the office concept, with workplace guidelines taken into account, will first be created and visualised with all necessary materials and furnishings. We call this step DESIGN. Do you need a bespoke concept for your new office? We look forward to hearing from you!
A one-stop shop for your office redevelopment project
