How do I get a quote for raised access floor?

So you need a raised access floor installing, what next? To ensure that you get an accurate quote for your raised floor there are a few key areas for consideration.

Drawings and layouts

For accurate pricing the raised flooring contractor will require layouts clearly marked up with the areas for the raised flooring to be installed in. If the area is being fitted out tenant ready with finishes and partitions these will need to be clearly shown also.

For partitions you will need to confirm if these are taken off the raised floor or are being positioned slab to slab as this affects the level of cutting required. Where finishes are being applied the build up of these finishes will need to be confirmed as this may mean the raised flooring needs to be lowered in areas to accommodate the finishes.

Floor height

It is also worth considering when to programme the installation of services and the raised floor, early engagement with the electrical contractor and raised flooring contractor is key to maximise efficiencies.
