Area of renovation

Another key factor on which the cost of renovation will depend is the total area of the office which is being renovated. Some office renovation companies also provide information about the cost of renovation according to the total area of renovation. The final cost may differ from the estimate but still the total cost and the plan will depend greatly on these figures.

It is suggested that for a very simple design an approximate cost is $12 per square foot. It is understood that such very simple designs are not very ideal however it can give a rough estimate of how much should you be spending. For the most high quality and complex designs $220 per square foot are approximated. For mediocre projects a price of $135 per square foot are estimated.

Furniture

After construction, furniture is the most important part of making an office’s look. A well-made and well-designed furniture can overcome the flaws in the construction of the building – however, bad furniture can ruin the look of the even the most fashionable building.

The total cost will of course depend on the type, quality and quantity of the furniture that you are buying. A rough estimate that can be made for modern office furniture in Hong Kong is:

  • For basic or cheap office furniture: $900-$1200 per person
  • For mediocre furniture: $1200-$2100 per person
  • For high quality furniture: $2100-$3000 per person

A good budget should keep to between $900-$1500 per person. So, you can now get a rough idea of the total furniture cost by multiplying the total number of employees in your office by $1200.

These were the major factors on which the total office renovation cost will depend on. This cost will of course vary based on the location of your office and the places from you are buying the materials. It is better to put a little more effort and do some research before making any property investment or spending any money on the material because you might find the same material and same designs at some other place in a fairly lesser price.
