Fit out

A specialist fit out and refurbishment business - our passion and commitment is rooted in what we do best.

At a time of economic uncertainty, clients are facing a number of challenges: a shortage in supply of Grade A office space as they look to move premises; how to refurbish office space in a live environment; and, how to create more flexible work spaces so offices can adapt to a company’s changing needs.

The value of our client-focused and bespoke approach is demonstrated by the high percentage of repeat business we do with our clients and consultants - over 75% – taking them through from the initial strategy stage to delivery and occupation.

What we offer

We bring truly specialised teams to complex challenges — and our ability to deliver in occupied and operational spaces efficiently and safely is second to none.

Como provides upfront, strategic advice to clients to stress test the approach on every element of your project – programme, methodology, logistics, costs and value engineering – to ensure that work is set on the right path from the start in order to meet your business objectives. We also have a dedicated MEP commercial team who manage this process during the tendering and procurement stages to ensure we start our work for you on the strongest possible footing.

While 75% of our work is London based, we work across the country, from London to Manchester, from the south coast to Scotland, with our teams based out of our London and Leeds offices. We work with clients across a range of sectors including commercial office, legal, arts and culture to the creative industries and national broadcasters. By tailoring our method to the specific requirements of each sector, we deliver the same great service no matter what business you work in.

Why Como?

A breadth of capability

An integral part of the Mace family, we deliver projects under all forms of contract, of all sizes and across the full spectrum of fit out services, from Cat A and Cat B to refurbishment. We have the breadth of capability, depth of experience and financial stability necessary to provide a solid and reliable foundation for all that we do. Our experienced, agile team and client-focused approach enables us to be entirely flexible to your needs. We are constantly challenging ourselves to find better and smarter ways to reach our clients' objectives and just as importantly, surpass their expectations.

A strong team

With us, you get engaged people united by a common desire to excel. You get committed team members who will go the distance on your project. Above all else, we believe you need a fit out team you can trust - one that can seamlessly integrate with your established project team and take ownership of delivery to the highest quality, on schedule and on budget.

Dedicated to quality

Quality is a main driver, not just in our projects but also throughout our business. We have won more awards in recent years than any of our competitors — a fact we’re very proud of, and a testament to our commitment to delivering exceptional projects. When we say we're going to deliver, we ensure that we do; we make bold promises because we know we can keep them.

A commitment to sustainability

Sustainability is not a buzzword at Como. We have a genuine commitment to minimising our impact on the environment, not just because it’s good for business but because it’s the right thing to do. Our dedicated environmental team works closely with Como’s senior team to make sure we set project targets and stick to them.

A focused approach

What motivates us every day is working with people like you - clients who have exceedingly high standards and want to avoid the normal adversarial contractor relations. We believe that client satisfaction and surpassing their expectations derives as much from the process as the product. This means that we're committed to bringing a consistent approach to our work and ensuring client satisfaction throughout the project. Building and maintaining relationships with our team, clients and their professional teams is a priority to us. Why? Because we believe great partnerships are key to delivering successful projects for our clients and the growth of our business.

Tailored to you

Our approach is to provide a bespoke service to clients, with teams working according to project size. Whether your requirement is for a small, medium or major project, Como can scale up or down according to your needs. We have dedicated teams, so we are able to ensure a tailored service to clients, ensuring that we're bringing clarity, transparency and accountability to all our projects.

Delivering safer projects

Como and the wider Mace Group are committed to ensuring the well-being of every person affected by our work. Our rigorous and future-focused approach goes beyond reducing accidents to nurture the systemic behavioural changes required to create and uphold a culture of safety and wellness on site.

Drawing upon a wider pool of expertise

As part of the wider Mace Group, you will be able to access leading practitioners from across the property spectrum, from mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) to sustainability, from Building Information Modelling (BIM) to logistics, ensuring that your project benefits from the business’ wider knowledge base.

“Working with Como has been a real success. Not only have they delivered a quality product but, and more importantly from a client perspective, the team has been good fun to work with.”

“Como worked closely with the Mary Rose Trust in a true partnership with everybody dedicated to the success of the project. This extremely complex project was achieved successfully and safely without fuss and with the utmost professionalism and commitment.”
