- "We chose TKI after a lengthy period of assessment of a number of potential service providers. This diligence certainly paid off. TKI’s creative team put in a lot of effort and ideas and the quality of the sample visuals and presentations was top class. The contracting process was relatively seamless, but the real eye-opener was the installation teams, who went way beyond the call of duty to try to meet our tight time lines, working over weekends and well into the night on a number of occasions. In summary, a reliable, relatively painless business engagement, which engendered a high degree of trust in the integrity of the TKI management team to deliver on what they promised."
- "The Turnkey team were adept at understanding our requirements and vision. We found the team professional and organised and they delivered the project on time and within our tight budget. We have no hesitation in recommending Turnkey for any similar interior design work."
- "When a staff member’s first comment when walking into their new office is “do I actually work here” you know you have hit the mark. I trust Karen and Turnkey implicitly and will be using them for future projects. They stuck to budget and timelines and kept open communications at all times. They felt like part of our team and we felt part of theirs."
- "Turnkey Interiors was knowledgeable, professional, and communicated well. They made it very clear for us to understand and visualise their design proposal and provided us with a fresh new and timeless workspace that maintains the integrity of the Coty Workplace guidelines. The project was completed on time, and within budget, and we were most impressed with the Turnkey Interiors team from concept to completion. We would therefore highly recommend Turnkey Interiors for their design and build services."
- "From initial meeting and layout to design presentation and 3D renders, Turnkey Interiors quickly understood our requirements. They worked within our budget and designed a modern new workspace for our team."
- "Turnkey Interiors was hired to renovate the interior of our office. Karen and her team undertook first class work and did not quit until everything we asked for was complete to our satisfaction. Turnkey Interiors conducts themselves in a very professional manner and is extremely reliable. We would highly recommend Turnkey Interiors to anyone considering a renovation and we will certainly use them again for any of our future projects."
- "Throughout the tender process to appointment, Turnkey Interiors was knowledgeable, professional, and communicated well. Construction was halted due to Covid-19 lockdown, but they quickly completed the project the moment they were allowed back on site. We were most impressed with the Turnkey Interiors team and would highly recommend Karen and her team to any future clients."
- "As a feminist legal centre that seeks to promote the rights of women, it was important for us as the Women’s Legal Centre to work with a woman led team. WLC was moving offices for the first time in almost yen years and we needed a service provider who understood what it means to work for a non-profit organisation that provided critical support and services to women, and who would find change daunting. From our initial meeting to discuss our needs and those of our clients to the conversations about design and layout, the Turnkey team was excited, confident, reassuring and onboard to meet our needs. We would not hesitate to recommend Karen and her excellent team."
- "Turnkey Interiors demonstrated a professional, pro-active and consistent competence throughout the project period; they were easy to work with and; the office was delivered according to specification. IDNIL Professional Consultants is therefore confident in recommending Turnkey Interiors in rendering turnkey design solutions."

Turnkey Interiors – Invest in new ways of working.
Interior design is constantly evolving. No longer is it only about the overall look and feel of the space, but also a clear focus on office efficiency. By encouraging teams to co-inhabit in open spaces, these workspaces promote productivity, innovation, and creativity. New challenges, such as COVID-19 and social distancing, need to be navigated in the workplace and affects the overall design of the space. From the outset, organisations should try to understand what they want to achieve, as space needs to be designed to produce specific performance outcomes – productivity in one space and increased innovation in another.
The right environment can significantly increase sales, decrease staff turnover, and improve creativity and productivity. Offices of the future will offer shared, multipurpose spaces that can be adapted to suit any business transition – from pandemic regulatory restrictions and social distancing to work-from-home rotational structures.
Leaders should encourage change and assist their employees to overcome their resistance to change. Employee connections and a sense of belonging in a workplace remain key to the success of any activity-based working environment.
