How much does it cost to renovate an office in Singapore?

So, you’re looking to renovate your office in Singapore. The first concern that comes to mind is often “How much does it cost?”

The short answer?

It may range from $320 to $1080 per sqm or $30 to $100 per sqft. Of course, this is dependent on the layout complexity, flooring, size of electrical furnishing, and more.

Here is a list of the common cost attributes:

  • Consulting fee
  • Deposit
  • Tiling and flooring
  • Wallhacking
  • Furniture
  • Electrical requiring
  • Painting


What Are Some Things To Consider?


What is the nature of your business and what do you hope to achieve out of the renovation? For instance, you might want a workspace that fosters teamwork and collaboration. By letting us know your objective, we can better align our design services with your needs.


Next, give us a reasonable budget and we’ll try our best to work around it. Do you require more space to accommodate more workspace? Or perhaps you prefer a cozier and smaller office space? Whichever you choose, we will definitely work around the budget while still delivering quality services.


How Can You Prepare For The Makeover?

As the owner of the office space, you have the final say in how the office will look and feel. Therefore, it is important that you consider, and even shortlist a few designs that caught your eye. You can even draw inspiration by looking at the portfolios of various design companies.

As design, in general, is subjective, clients tend to get confused when they receive multiple quotations from various ID/contractor companies. It is important to understand that different ID/Contractor companies quote differently.

At Wilsin, we can provide Design Consultancy services. Typically, once the design is confirmed, simply call for a tender based on the approved design. This way, you can get the most accurate comparison in terms of cost. Our expert in space planning and design can provide free design drawings (1 to 2 designs) and will engage you to work around your budget and explain how you can fully maximize the space.



How long does the renovation usually take?

Based on a new 1000sqft space, renovation works will approximately span across 8 weeks. However, if you are looking at Additional & Alteration (A&A) works, expect the duration of works to stretch slightly longer due to demolition processes.


What is a good budget to set aside for renovation costs?

Again, there are several factors like the scale and design that you wish to achieve. On average, you will be looking at roughly $50 - $180/psf. However, we will always work with clients to achieve the best results within the budget set.
