• How much does an office fitout cost?

    Size alone doesn’t determine the cost of an office fitout. There are many other factors to take into account, such as: the company's business objectives, how it needs to function, the level of finishes, and the quality of the furniture. Some works can be purely cosmetic. Others can include structural changes. Moving a wall by one metre can have a domino effect on related costs which may include electrical, data, air conditioning, ceilings, painting and carpets.
