Shop Defits and Strip Outs

Tenants are required to remove all fixtures and fittings and return a tenancy back to its original state at lease end. Generally when vacating a commercial property, this means bringing it back to a bare shell. The process of demolishing a retail store is referred to as shop defits, strip outs or to make-good. 

The following responsibilities are often included in the shop defit process;

  • Floor removal
  • Removal and recycling/restoring of store fixtures and fittings
  • Removal and dumping of store fixtures and fittings
  • Deconstruction of shopfronts
  • Glass removal
