One of the most common questions we get asked is “How much does a fit out cost?” To assist potential clients with answering this question, we’ve used our wealth of knowledge and experience in preparing the information below.

In very simple terms, your project cost is dependent on two main factors.

  • The type of space you are considering or currently lease.
  • The type of space you want to create.

Set out in table form are budget costs for the design and fit out of all different types of spaces.

Get in contact with us to discuss your requirements and we will tailor a proposal to suit your specific requirements.
