Our Process - Crown Workspace

Our Process

Our approach is based on the simple principal of making the process of refurbishing or moving your office as hassle free and as enjoyable as possible.

We bring together our wide network of specialists to give you a ‘best of the best’ project team, most suited to you and based on appropriate experience, expertise and culture.

As a guideline, we base our process on the RIBA Plan of Work. This highlights the key stages involved in a typical fit-out project, from briefing, designing, constructing, project managing and maintaining your new office.
