What is an office fit out?

An office fit out is the process of designing and constructing an office space to meet an occupier’s specific needs. This can include everything from furniture and equipment to mechanical and electrical systems. An effective office refit can improve productivity, employee morale, and help create a positive brand image. Whether you are relocating to a new office or looking to refresh your existing space, our guide can help you understand the costs involved in creating your ideal workplace.

Office fit out versus office
refurbishment: what’s the difference?

An office refurbishment is an office refresh project that is often less intensive than an office fit out. It may include changing a layout, completing a renovation, putting in new furniture or replacing flooring. Often, a refurbishment can occur while the office is in use.

of an office fit out?

What are the factors
impacting office fit out costs?

Several factors can influence office renovation costs, including:

Size/Type of Office Space

The size and type of space you are fitting out, such as an open plan or traditional office, can greatly impact the cost.

Level of Customization

  • Quality of finishes: The quality of finishes, such as flooring and wall coverings, can significantly impact office renovation costs.
  • Complexity of design: The more complex the design—such as intricate lighting or customized furniture—the higher the cost.
  • Sustainability requirements: Green building standards or sustainability requirements may increase the cost but offer long-term savings in energy usage and maintenance costs for sustainable office fit outs.
  • Mechanical and electrical services: The need for additional mechanical and electrical services, such as air conditioning or data cabling, can increase the overall costs.

Location of the Office

The cost of materials, labor, and regulations can vary greatly by location.
