Why Total Fitouts

They’re local! Born and bred South Aussies, Brett and his team are passionate about helping create the dream space for local business owners. 

They know their stuff. Brett’s been in the construction industry for over 20 years so it’s second nature to him, but as he says, “you can be the expert in your business, let us take care of this side of making it exactly as you want”. He even took out the top gong for ‘Mr Fitout’ in Total Fitouts’ national awards which speaks volumes about the respect for him in the industry.

They’re creative. You wouldn’t believe what different lighting, a bit of pressed metal or mirrors can do. Total Fitouts love getting their creative pants on and finding a way to make your space functional and to make an impact. 

“The brief for the Kandy Shop Club was 50 Cent’s Candy Shop film clip. It gave us a chance to show our creative side with stunning pressed-metal ceilings, illuminated archways that seemingly go on forever (the trickery of mirrors), and lit-up tubes of giant coloured candy. It’s pretty spectacular and a whole lot of fun,” says Mathew Lange, Business Development Manager.

They care about your wallet. These legends know that all budgets have a limit and they’ll work their magic to get you the best value and biggest impact within your budget. Years of experience means they have creative and cost-effective ways of helping you build your dream without breaking the bank. 

They’ve got all bases covered. These guys will make sure you don’t take a lease on a place riddled with asbestos, bad plumbing, dodgy electrical or broken beams. 

“There’s so much to consider when you’re starting from scratch, relocating or upsizing — but we’ll do everything to ensure you get the best quality for your budget and help you steer clear of any trouble spots with a full assessment of the space you want to lease,” says Brett.

Their team also includes an in-house designer so they can offer a complete service, from concept to complete fitout. Dealing with one team is smoother, less stressful and more efficient — and nothing gets missed!

They’ve got connections you can trust. Apart from ensuring they do a stellar job for you, Brett and the team have years of experience working with other renowned people in the industry. So, if you need help with anything outside their scope, they’ll pass you onto people you can trust for those pesky details like council approval and liquor licensing.

So, get out that dream business plan and contact Brett and his team at Total Fitouts to bring it to life.
