Budget planning for the fit-out of your commercial space is essential. If not done correctly, a business can easily be put at risk. What often happens is that the fit-out costs more and takes more time to finish than people presume. This can bring plenty of unpleasant surprises, from people not having a proper office space to work in, to new tenants not being able to move into their new home.

But how much can you expect your fit-out to cost? Let’s find out what insights commercial fit-out Perth experts can share with us!


Depending on the size of your space, the costs will vary. Commercial fit-outs for an average size office typically cost between $500 and $2000 per square meter. However, it is virtually impossible to predict a more specific number because the final quote will depend on the ins and outs of the project, so the best thing to do is to ask for a quote.


What you want to do with your space is what the price will mainly revolve around. For instance, the price could be closer to $500 per square meter, if you only require workstations, phones, internet and power. Now, if you want new ceilings, flooring, lighting, air conditioning, and a kitchenette, then you could be looking at around $2000 per square meter.

If the fit-out is for a medical establishment, the costs are going to be higher – $2000 to $5000 per square meter. The exact amount will depend on how much equipment is needed and the type of design.


Costs will differ depending on the style.

Progressive style with a simple aesthetic, basic technology, an open floor plan and no enclosed offices would be the least costly option.

Moderate style with a substantially open plan with 10% enclosed offices and the focus on function, will add around $200 extra per square meter.

Traditional style with around 30% of the floor plan dedicated to enclosed offices, and a simple aesthetic and basic technology, would be the most expensive option out of the three. It would add around $200 per square meter.

A good commercial design contributes to key objectives of any space – productivity, collaboration, and an uplifting environment. This is why you will need a trustworthy company to do the job right.
