Costs: office fit-out

  • Comment

Davis Langdon & Everest provides indicative costs for common items of work associated with office fitting-out. The rates are current at December 2002 and reflect competitively tendered work in the outer London area. Inner London rates may be up to 10 per cent higher while costs in the regions will generally be lower. The costs are indicative of those found on medium to large fit-out projects (more than 2,500m 2floor area). Smaller schemes will attract a premium to these rates
