We’ve all heard of CAT A and CAT B – but there’s a new kid on the block going by the name of CAT A+ – and we’ve got involved!

With the huge trend of co-working spaces seemingly knowing no limits, landlords have had to come up with some smart initiatives to continue engaging with potential occupants and CAT A+ is where many are heading. This new level of fitout provides tenants with an ‘almost complete’ office space in varying degrees – some offer just a few strategic pieces of furniture – purely to encourage ‘vision’ on the space; some will go through the tiresome process of installing fibre – ensuring a massively sped up moving-in process for the occupier; and some are going as far as fitting out the entire space – making a ‘show floor’ out of the area.

All have the same objective – to keep their noses in the traditional fitout market that’s so drastically changed over the past few years. Orchard have been involved in several of these CAT A+ projects over the past 12 months and have a couple currently nearing completion. We see it as the perfect solution for landlords needing to move spaces as quickly as possible, and tenants who either don’t suit – or have outgrown – the co-working environment. We’re proud to be one of the pioneers of this new branch of fit out and will be showcasing some of these projects over the upcoming months.
