Whether you’re designing a new workshop fit out, or thinking of re-fitting an existing one, there are many factors to consider. However, one of the most crucial requirements is the need to meet the strict Corporate Identity standards.
Global vehicle manufacturers have spent millions to create a Corporate Identity that clearly portrays their brand to potential customers. So, whether your workshop needs a refurbishment, expansion, or a completely new fit out, it’s important to look at this as an opportunity and follow our below advice.
Our Advice to meet Strict Corporate Identity Requirements
1. Don’t substitute with a cheaper brand
If you’re working with a European manufacturer, standards will be high. They will often stipulate a particular brand of equipment, or a precise colour from a certain manufacturer.
It can be tempting to substitute with a cheaper brand to save money, however these cheaper brands simply don’t measure up – leaving you with more costs to rectify the work.
2. Choose a supplier with expertise
Choosing to partner with a supplier with expertise working within corporate identity guidelines means you will design a workshop fit out right the first time. And with rebates on offer for meeting their requirements, this can save you money in the long term.
3. Don’t let your fit out become an expensive nightmare
Choosing a supplier who can work within your corporate identity requirements and deliver a solution that meets them, you can achieve a workshop fit out that:
- Looks the part
- Helps you deliver a better service for your customers
- Doesn’t drain your resources
- Becomes an investment
4. Understand the client’s requirements & budget
To be successful you must understand the client’s requirements as well as their budget. You also need a deep understanding of the relevant Corporate Identity requirements and a relationship with the OEM. This enables a successful fit-out supplier to work with everyone involved and come up with a solution that ticks all the boxes.
