Security Considerations for Interior Design Projects
When undertaking interior design and interior remodeling projects on your client’s properties, an element of the project that can often be overlooked is the security requirements for the property as you and your team are working on it. Often, windows and doors may be removed in order to be replaced, workers will be in and out regularly and it can be easy to forget to secure the property at the end of the day.
As every interior design project is different, a bespoke security system is often required, and unfortunately it is not normally something you will find easily from a simple Google search. We know it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to securing your client’s property during an interior design remodel – how do you know that the security company you’re researching is able to provide the security systems and services you require?
