A shopfitter is a qualified and licenced professional specialising in the fitout of commercial premises including; retail shops, cafes, restaurants and even offices and medical practices.
A shopfitter can manage and oversea your fitout from inception to completion.
Shopfitting companies can often assist with design and specification prior to construction or simply come in to execute the designs prepared by others. Typically, the shopfitter is appointed as the principal contractor and as such is responsible for the management and coordination of all aspects of a fitout, this generally includes:

Whether you need a shopfitter for purely construction of your project or to manage and oversea the entire process choosing the right shopfitter for you is a very important decision.
