    Can anyone assist with a ball park cost to complete an office fit out? in Newcastle if that makes a difference.

    The existing fit out mostly suits our purposes but we will need:
    - remove 5m plater board / glass wall and replace with 5m concertina wall
    - build 1 small meeting room, approx 3m x 2m
    - install approx 36 work stations, 1/2 of which will be relocated, 1/2 new
    - IT work bench, rack & storage shelves
    - replace 5 x 7 floating floor with commercial grade carpet squares

    Also, does anyone know if we would need council approval for those changes?

    I don't need furniture costs as I have those, just other materials / labour.

    Just after ball park so we can put it to the board, can work on the detail in a week or so.

    Feel free to relocate to coffee lounge it doesn't belong here :)

    TIA

    As you're installing new work stations, it may require council approval as the path of travel to exits may change and exceed the required distances.

    New office layout may require additional emergency/exit lights (and annual certification).

    Hey. Call me after 11 tomorrow (number in sig) and I'll point you in the right direction.

    As @Scott No Mates says fire egress may be your biggest issue. Approval wise it is either exempt or complying.
