Services We Offer

CAT A Fit Out is a standard level of commercial interior construction that prepares a floor plate or commercial space ready for a CAT B Fit Out. It typically includes the essential infrastructure and basic finishes necessary to make a space functional, but it does not include the specific interior design or decorative elements that would be included in a CAT B Fit Out.

CAT A Fit Out provides a blank canvas for tenants to customise according to their specific needs and preferences. ICON would typically work with landlords to refurbish their buildings to provide a CAT A space ready to lease to potential tenants.

A CAT A+ fit-out is an upgraded version of the standard CAT A Fit Out in commercial office space. While CAT A Fit Outs provide the basic infrastructure and finishes necessary to make a space functional, CAT A+ Fit Outs offer additional enhancements and improvements, often including some level of customisation, making them more ready for immediate occupancy by tenants.

CAT A+ Fit Outs strike a balance between the simplicity of CAT A and the fully designed CAT B Fit Outs. CAT A+ spaces provide great opportunities to potential tenants who are looking to move fast, often referred to as plug and play.

A CAT B Fit Out refers to the interior design, build, and customisation of a commercial or office space to meet the specific needs and preferences of an end-user customer. CAT B Fit Out projects are entirely bespoke to the end-user, making every project unique. No two CAT B Fit Outs are the same and this is where are decades of experience shines through. Our ability to solve unique challenges efficiently and effectively will de-risk your project from the outset.

The key to a great CAT B Fit Out project is ensuring that the end result directly supports the end-users long term business goals. As a result, we find it the most rewarding in terms of customer engagement and making an impact. CAT B Fit Outs typically include ceilings, partitions, flooring, decoration, MEP alterations, bespoke joinery, audio-visual (AV), data, signage, and corporate branding.

Multi-sector projects from £50k to £5m.


A CAT A Fit Out focuses on the core essentials of a commercial space, providing a basic, blank canvas with structural elements, HVAC, and utilities. In contrast, a CAT B fitout is focusing on interior design tailored to a tenant's specific needs, incorporating partitions, finishes, furnishings, and branding elements to create a functional workspace.

An office Fit Out can entice people back into the office by prioritising safety, comfort, and collaboration. Creating flexible and appealing workspaces and incorporating the latest in smart technology can make employees feel secure and productive. 

Moreover, amenities, updated design, and engaging events enhance the overall work experience, fostering a sense of community and making the office an attractive place to work, ultimately encouraging employees to return willingly or supporting hybrid working.

The cost of an office Fit Out varies widely based on factors such as location, size, complexity, design, and technology incorporated. At ICON we are used to working within budgets and will always look to find a solution that fits around your business requirements.

We always look to minimise disruption during an office Fit Out by planning carefully in collaboration with you, should you still require to use parts of the office.

Yes, typically, you need landlord approval for an office refurbishment or Fit Out, as it may involve alterations to the leased space, impacting the property's structure or layout. Review your lease agreement for specifics or speak to a member of the ICON team, who will be happy to discuss.
