Keeping your project on track

Bringing the build to life

The common misconception.

As an architect, your vision is endless. You can see and design builds that most of us can’t even imagine, however, it is a common misconception that because of your vast knowledge in design, that this same knowledge transpires into understanding costs.

How often are you asked to provide a ballpark price? Some Architects are very intuned with build costs and are able to answer with relative ease… Although this isn’t always the case.

Providing ballpark or a budget cost sets the expectation, by working with us, you can feel confident that you are going the extra mile and ensuring the smoothest journey for your clients.

The cost of design.

We would like to see a change in the process, where understanding the cost of design is addressed earlier in the design phase.

So who benefits? The truth is everyone.

A client (homeowner) has their expectations managed and can then make informed decisions. The contractors who tender know that this project has already been agreed to a realistic contract value, giving them an added incentive and ultimately saving them time. You get to save time on what sometimes seems like endless revisions and most importantly, a happy customer.

No more guesswork & No more spiralling costs.
