Accreditation showcases specialist expertise and professionalism

SBID Interior Fit Out Specialists safeguard the public from the risks that inevitably arise through unregulated providers.

Our Contract Partners, including fit out specialists, make decisions and relationships work better when design teams are connected throughout the supply chain management and decision making process. The relationship ensures that a designers final product choices and specifications are fit for purpose and therefore improves work flow timelines.

Accreditation generates communication throughout the industry supply chain that eliminates risk of error through procurement. This natural synergy of a designers choice of products for an installers 1st and 2nd-fix provides additional assurances to a manufacturer that product-use and installation locations, building regulations, guidelines and manufacturer recommendations are adhered to.

This unique three-pronged approach creates a truly professional outcome for optimum product performance of all three interior design services ®.
