Performed by our own skilled specialists who know their professions inside out, our services cover every aspect of fitting out your interior space to the exacting standards you’d expect from a team with as much experience as ours.
We know that commercial pressures mean timings and costings are particularly crucial when it comes to fitting out a building, whether it’s an office space, superstore or secondary school. That’s why we use detailed forecasts and multiple teams of carefully coordinated workers to make sure every project goes perfectly to plan and stays within budget.

The end results are interiors that people want to occupy, but which also satisfy the client’s practical criteria when it comes to factors like cost, deadline, layout, materials, usage, health & safety and any environmental concerns.
Of course great design is nothing without smooth project management, and that’s why we are able to support and backup of a dedicated project manager and our unique Proactive Account Management (PAM) system.
Commercial Interior Design
Workplaces have changed significantly over the past 20 years and the trend is for more interactive spaces for staff to work in. This can even be seen in the commercial property sector where once bigger offices were “better”; now we have more open-plan office areas, multi-tenanted buildings and densities of staff having increased to the extent where parking becomes an issue. The trend towards hot-desking with the advancement of technology has made it more and more convenient to work remotely, be mobile and has increased productivity.
We can combine these needs and those of your customers into a space that people want to be in, giving your business that edge in these ever demanding times.
Your workspace says everything about your organisation.
The age old saying about first impressions is true for your office interior design.
What does your office interior design say about your company?
Every working environment should be tailor made to support the business housed within.
We realise that your office is more than just a showcase of your organisation.
Your work space is home, to you and your team. Is it a space that you want to be in… every single day?
Does your office interior design support your core function? Does the environment inspire productivity, enhance performance?

Employees are our most important assets and the environment in which they work and interact with your customers is a critical consideration that reflects the value the organisation places on them. Never before has it been more important to create an environment that your employees want to work in, not only to retain their services but to massage their minds into creative and innovative thinking.
It is no longer acceptable to simply use drywalling to create little cubicles for staff to work in. Staff need to interact and collaborate for any business to get the best out of them. We are not saying don’t use drywall but there are ways to design using drywalling that will blow you away.
People are far more mobile in the workplace than ever before, with the length that top people stay in positions getting shorter and shorter.
As Experienced Space planners we create spaces that optimise the interactive processes within the office and create areas that are most suitable to engage with customers. These areas designed for customer interaction are optimised using color, lighting, music and furniture which will create an environment conducive for positive outcomes.
By making use of 4DFM, we will take you through every step of the planning process, from initial consultation right through to architectural design, furniture selection and implementation of the project.
What we take into consideration when planning the office space is the effect of the office space design on the employees including the colours, available natural lighting, perception of space, comfort of the seating and work surfaces as well as the carbon footprint and potential cost savings by implementing the project using sustainable materials and lighting solutions.
Conveying the Corporate values and vision of your company to your employees as well as customers is a vital part of the space planning function and at 4DFM we are ever mindful of the value of employees that understand and identify with your corporate values.
