The price of a medical or veterinary fitout depends on many variables. As a rough budget estimation when setting up a new premise, ‘warm shell’ fitouts cost between $1,200-$1,500/sqm, with ‘cold shell’ fitouts cost between $1,600-$1,800/sqm. (Note: Smaller premise fitouts tend to be more expensive per square metre with the design, approval and site establishment costs remaining consistent).

Frequently asked questions
HOW MUCH DOES A VETERINARY FITOUT COST?
WHAT IS A WARM SHELL FITOUT?
Often used in commercial real estate, a ‘warm shell’ premise refers to a space or building with an unfinished interior. Warm shell fitouts usually include ceiling, lighting, air conditioning and fire systems.
WHAT IS A COLD SHELL FITOUT?
Often used in commercial real estate, a ‘cold shell’ premise refers to a space or building with an unfinished interior. Cold shell fitouts usually do not have finishes and services installed I.e., no lighting, plumbing, ceilings floor finishes, interior walls, or petitions.
HOW MUCH DOES A NEW VETERINARY BUILDING COST?
The cost of a new veterinary or medical building depends on a range of site constraint factors. As a rough budget, you can expect between $2,400-$3,000/sqm. This is an average estimation from a range of similar projects completed.
CAN I CONVERT A HOUSE TO A VETERINARY CLINIC?
Yes, however, it can be more expensive and time-consuming than converting a commercial premise into a clinic. Residential premises such as a house, are built to different codes than commercial. Many existing components will need to be heavily modified to comply with the commercial building code and to receive approval.
Case Study: Sydney, NSW
Contemporary veterinary clinic design and fitout.
It is actually possible to have the perfect practice for your needs. This project is another example of an in-depth design and consultation process resulting in a fully satisfied client. This particular fit-out was situated in inner Sydney and particularly caters to smaller pets – although large dogs still visit so they are allowed in all areas of the practice. Neutral colours were used throughout the fit-out to maintain a sense of calm professionalism. Beautiful full height feature windows were a great addition to the existing building and they provide a fantastic supply of natural light as well as a pleasant outlook. Cyclo is assisting Vets and other clinic owners with layout ideas, site surveys, space planning, initial design budgets as well as final design and construction stages of new build and renovation projects.
