Moving out of your current office space can be a huge headache. As most owners, landlords or building management will require you to return the space back to its original condition. (Think: Totally bare spaces and flooring) Dismantling EVERYTHING and making good the affected/damaged parts are what we call Office Reinstatement.
Put yourself in the shoes of the next tenant or owner, and the first impression you want to get when entering the office unit is to see it “brand new”.
Therefore, office reinstatement basically means returning the whole unit back to its “original” condition like its brand new.
What Office Reinstatement Does

Before getting your contractor to quote for the reinstatement services, there are some potential costs (hidden costs) to note. Some contractors’ quote might not include the following:

- Cost depends on building management requirements
- Inspection fees, application fees
- Sprinkler fees
- Drainage of water pipe, approval to alter sprinklers

In addition, some owners and landlords set a deadline to return the space back to them in the original condition.
If the space is not ready to be returned to them on the required date, extra costs such as additional rental fees may apply.
Further more, it is also important to note on the requirements of the building management.
Before reinstating works are started, do take note of the following points which may require time to prepare:
- Is a permit required to be submitted before start of the reinstatement works?
- How long does it take for the renovation permit to be approved by the management?
- Do certain parts of the reinstatement works (e.g. sprinklers or electrical) can ONLY be done by the building’s in-house contractors? Or can I get my own contractor to do it?
- Do I need insurance for the reinstatement works? (may take 1 to 3 days for insurance to be ready)
- and more…
