The construction costs associated with office projects are remarkably uniform across Europe. This is largely due to the fact that the requirements for offices have to provide for the common purpose of providing a safe, functional work space. Local regulation for lighting, thermal efficiency and even proscribed work areas, rest areas etc. can all make differences so whereas the common construction is often similar detail can make cost variances. Modern office construction is also guided, certainly in the case of prestigious space by the need to attain high eco-scoring as the corporate world likes to be seen as leading the way for sustainability to include carbon in use and carbon foot printing. This means that in ECC we are able to introduce figures and rating for higher eco-performance reflecting the added burden of regulation and the commercial pressure. The fit out for cellular or open plan is allowed for as is the category of office required.
