When planning an office fit-out, we know one of your first questions will be “how much is it going to cost?”
That’s why we’ve designed a handy office cost calculator tool, to give you an on-the-spot budget cost for fitting out your new offices.
How to use our office cost calculator
To use our office fit out cost calculator, all you need to do is add your space requirements in square footage, and navigate the graphic to choose your specifics.
This isn’t a substitute for a consultation with our team who can provide you with an accurate price based upon your specific office space needs and requirements – but it will give you an indication for budgeting.
To maximise budget, it may be that you want to select ‘high range’ for customer facing areas but ‘basic ranges’ in the back office, so you reach a budget between the figures suggested.
Office Principles specify and project manage the installation of office furniture from a number of major manufacturers and can offer independent and researched advice. Because we buy regularly and in considerable quantities, we get the benefit of highly desirable project discount terms which we pass on to you.
Factor in Furniture Costs
Once you’ve had a look at our office cost calculator, you then need to consider whether you’ll be using your existing furniture or if your new office deserves a whole new look.
Our office fit-out costs don’t include furniture, so you’ll need to consider these costs in your budget as well.
While you may find that a single desk will only cost you £250.00, you also need to consider task seating, cable management, screens, pedestals and accessories to get an accurate price per person. When you add in a reception area, meeting rooms, and breakout spaces, the price soon adds up.
How To Calculate Your Office Furniture Budget
As a rough guide for your furniture budget, we suggest you add up the total number of staff and multiply by the figures we suggest below. This will provide you with an indication of the likely furniture fit-out costs that you’ll be looking at.
Basic range: £750 – £1,000 per person
Mid range: £1,000 to £1,750.00 per person
High range: £1,750 – £2,500.00 per person
Maximising Your Budget
At Office Principles, we have lots of ideas on how to maximise your budget. For example, you may decide to select from the ‘high range’ for customer facing areas, but stick to ‘basic range’ in the back office. This will place your budget somewhere between the figures suggested. With our established manufacturer and industry relationships we can also secure preferential rates, which we pass onto you.
