A category A fit out includes basic finishes to the floors, walls and ceilings – the space is finished but with no fixtures and fittings such as partitions, meeting rooms or individual offices laid out. The office space will be functional but not include the final specifications included in a category B fit out. Think of a category A fit out as a blank canvas that you can build your office on.
A category B fit out is a finished office space that has been tailored to the exact requirements of the client, resulting in a space that is ready for occupancy.
The framework and envelope of the building is in place but it is just a shell that is ready for the actual fit out. Services such as mains water systems and main electrical supply will usually be in place but things such as suspended ceilings, flooring, wall coverings, partitions, lighting and so on will not be installed.
