Just like you would set up any local repository, prepare the server (http for example) and directory structure and synchronize with the public repositories. Do that on your local machine from outside your office (where you have un-proxied internet access). Next at your office set up the same environment and synchronize your local repos to that one. Here are some guides:
Fedora mirror
Setup Yum repository
Create local Fedora mirror.

Of course you'll need to configure your clients inside the office to point to your local repo.

Kind regards,
