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.

What are the benefits of an office fit out?

A well-designed office fit out can have a significant impact on your business. It can help you attract and retain top talent, improve efficiency, and create a positive work environment. Investing in an office fit out is an investment in the future of your business.


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.

Fees, Timelines and Contingencies

  • Project management and professional fees: Professional fees, such as architect and project management fees, can be a significant portion of the total office renovation costs.
  • Timeline and delivery requirements: Tight timelines or delivery requirements can add costs for expedited or overtime labor.
  • Contingencies: Contingency costs are an essential part of any budget to account for unforeseen expenses or changes during the project.
