While you can replace all of the office furniture for a very fast remodel it can also be the most expensive option. Buying new office furniture may not even be required to create the illusion of new office design plans either. Unless your furniture is in such disrepair that it needs to be trashed you can opt to recondition it. If you dont just want the same old furniture back opt to refurbish it. Office furniture refurbishing is one technique that not only brings in a new look but also conserves precious planet resources. If youre looking to keep some of the structure of the office furniture while getting a whole new look or a workspace that serves more than one function consider remanufacturing it.
Office Fit Out Costs Suggested price ranges: for a CAT B office fit out of £40 - £60 per square foot for a basic specification £60 - £80 psf for a mid-range scheme £80 - £100 psf for a high quality project and £120 + for projects incorporating outstanding office design ideas and quality. Typically these figures include separate professional fees for architects external project management and cost control that together account for the difference between Design & Build fit-out costs and the traditional examples quoted.
Certain modern office interior design projects involve a fit-out cost per square foot far higher than the typical range; for example with fit out costs sometimes in the region of £180 - £200 per square foot. Commercial interior fit out projects with this level of cost differ from the regular office design layout or office refurbishment in that the fittings materials and furniture will be specified to the very highest standard rather than the usual commercial levels. All figures quoted include Office Design CDM & Building Regulation submissions and project management... the figures are for complete start-to-finish projects.
