• How much office space do I need?

    May 25th, 2018 | by

    A good rule of thumb when determining how much office space is required is to allow for approximately 10m2 per person. This includes an allowance for a workstation area, a lunchroom, meeting room and small reception area. The allowance per person will also be impacted by the type of workplace environment you want to create for your team.

  • The building floor plate is 1,000m2 but I only need 200m2?

    Shared and coworking spaces are an option to consider if you’ve found the perfect office space and location but the floor plan is larger than your requirements. Don’t hesitate to contact BTP to discuss the option of subdividing a floor plate to deliver the area that best suits your team.

  • How long is a standard commercial office lease?

    May 25th, 2018 | by

    Generally, commercial office lease terms are for a minimum of three years. If you enter into a longer-term lease, you’ll be well placed to negotiate on rental terms and inclusions. If you have a team of fewer than 15 people, you may like to consider a serviced office. Flexible serviced office leases (minimum of three months) are available at all three Brisbane BTP precincts and offer the option of transitioning to a larger workspace during the lease term.  

  • What do I need to consider when designing my fit-out?

    May 25th, 2018 | by

    When designing the fit-out of your new commercial office space, we’ll work with you to prepare a fit-out plan which will show the location of all workstations, meeting rooms and other facilities. You’ll need to decide how many power and data points are required per workstation, the density and design of partitions and workstation dividers, the standard of loose furniture (a basic allowance of $1,000 per workstation set). 

    You’ll also need to make sure your plans are finalised before the fit-out work commence to minimise the chance of any variations or cost increases. It’s also a good idea to build in some expansion space into your fit-out!

  • Will my landlord contribute to the cost of my fit-out?

    May 25th, 2018 | by

    Your landlord will discuss with you the option of a finance package to fund the delivery of your fit-out.

  • What operating costs should I be aware of?

    May 25th, 2018 | by

    Your office rental costs will comprise your rent, outgoings, parking costs, electricity, internet, cleaning, phone, insurances. Outgoings refer to all of the costs incurred by the property manager in keeping the building running such as payment of land tax, common area power, maintenance and landscaping. It’s a good idea to start a dialogue with your Internet provider early to ensure that the connections are up and running by the time you take occupancy.
