Office fit-out costs in Singapore rise to $188 psf, highest in Southeast Asia

The standard price of fitting out an office in Singapore increased 4.4% from $180 psf in 2022 to $188 psf in 2023, according to a review by worldwide residential property consultancy Cushman & Wakefield (C&W).

C&W accentuate that producing work environments that promote efficiency, wellness and sustainability continues to be a top priority for occupants and even as they grapple with expense difficulties.

Grant Carter, head of project and development services for Singapore at C&W, observes that the journey to quality pattern remains prominent, with more business going with better good quality buildings in business-strategic areas.

According to C&W, the raise in costs was underpinned by continued stressors inside the international supply chain, leading to boosted delivery costs. The recurring problem in Europe has actually reduced trade flows and re-routed ship vessels far from the Suez Canal, including around 10-14 days in transit time.

The much higher costs in Singapore appear as common fit out expenses remained to ascend throughout the Asia Pacific (Apac) area, though at a slower speed matched to last year.

In Apac, Japanese metros had the top fit out costs. Tokyo ($ 268 psf) got the top place followed by Osaka ($ 263 psf) and Nagoya ($ 258 psf). Singapore ranked 14th in regards to average fit out price in Apac metros.

Among Southeast Asian cities, Manila had the 2nd best standard workplace fit out cost at $129 psf, followed by Bangkok at $144 psf.

In regards to global positions, London has the most expensive fit out prices worldwide at $355 psf.

” Designing for a curated place of work knowledge is on the surge, with an ongoing emphasis on creating a spot that adds to greater frequency, greater functionality, and a general boost in user experience,” he adds

This produces workplaces in Singapore one of the most costly to fit out in Southeast Asia for the 2nd year running. The fee estimates more than 50% of the room is alloted to dedicated offices and that the renter has actually adopted adaptable working process post-pandemic.
