THE SECRET TO SECURING ZERO FIT-OUT COST?
Careful planning and full market coverage are the tried and tested ways of sourcing the ideal fitted office space and taking it up in ‘as is’ condition from the landlord.
The problem is that the most attractive real estate opportunities are often short-lived, difficult to source, analyze & execute. This is a recurring problem in the real estate industry, and often there is a lack of transparency and insufficient coverage of upcoming or off market opportunities.
Through SAVVI’s data & AI driven Tenant’s Network, clients seeking fitted offices can access not only existing market vacancy but also upcoming and off market fitted offices ahead of the competition. This revolutionary approach to office search creates full transparency of opportunities within your transaction window and creates market fluidity for demand and supply.
Submit your office search, and let the ideal fitted office find you, generating massive savings for your business.

Possession of the premises is normally provided in “bare shell” condition. Costs associated with fitting out the space will be borne by the tenant.
Tenants normally pay for all tenant improvements, except that the landlord normally delivers the space with suspended ceilings, ceiling lighting and restrooms (landlord’s standard handover condition).
Costs are typically quoted and assessed on the net square footage of the space and for Class A or Prime buildings normally range from HK$600 - 1,200 per sf Net, including construction, furniture, wiring, design fees, etc. Ranges shown below are based on circa. 5,000 sf Net (i.e. approx. 6,700 sq ft Gross). Find out how much net square footage space you might need with our office space calculator.
A tenant is generally free to use its own architect and engineers, and must use the landlord’s contractor for air-con / fire sprinkler and plumbing. The tenant must fit-out the premises according to plans and specifications as approved in writing by the landlord.
