How much should an office design cost?
Office fit outs vary depending on many factors, which makes it difficult to give a simple answer. A detailed brief is essential. You may require purely cosmetic work which covers a broad spectrum in itself or a detailed analysis of work space, utilisation and the development of strategy for the future. If you need structural changes, you will need additional skills, such as a surveyor and structural engineer, which are included in the price with design and build. That said, based on our extensive experience, we advise clients to set aside a similar amount to one year’s rent.
It is most important that your office design budget is comprehensive and incorporates:
· fit out/refurbishment costs
· IT infrastructure
· hardware, software, support
· relocation to a new telephone system, installation and training
