What is a Speculative Office Fit Out?

[sp_wpcarousel id="28235"]

Speculative office fit outs have become a popular option for landlords in the world of commercial property.

But what exactly is a speculative (spec) office fit out?

A spec fit out is a new office fit out built by the landlord, designed to accommodate a broad range of new tenants.

It’s constructed before any commitment from a tenant, with the aim of giving themselves an edge over the other competition in the property market.

Why Complete a Fit Out Without a Tenant?

To put it simply, a spec fit out is a way for landlords to get an edge over competition, in a very competitive industry.

If they can show potential tenants a functional, modern space that requires no further work, it makes the property a much more attractive prospect.

For instance, the new tenant will save time and money by not having to organise their own fit out. It also means there’ll be no pause in business while this happens.

Overall, a spec fit out means that a landlord can lease their premises faster.

What Does a Spec Fit Out Usually Include?

A spec fit out will be made up of a fully equipped office, with all basic requirements seen to.

For instance, a reception area will be fitted out, as this is a basic necessity for virtually all office based businesses.

The office kitchen is such an important area for your staff. A spec fit out will also include this, and occasionally a separate breakout room if necessary.

Generally, the desk plan will be open, allowing for adaptation in the future if required.

Lastly, a meeting or board room will be included, a crucial space in any office.
