Keeping your building project on track

Building to your budget

When you work with an estimator, you’ll receive an accurate cost estimate – broken down into the finest of detail. We ensure that you understand exactly where your build budget is going, so you can get on with building the home of your dreams.

There is nothing worse than endless revisions, out of control material costs and constant hurdles when it comes to your house build. When you work with Nest Estimating, we help to keep your costs from spiralling out of control.

We don't believe in budget guesswork

When you’re building your dream home, working on a renovation or even an extension – both your time and money is precious. You wouldn’t guess the budget required for something like a wedding, so why guess your way to your dream build? You wouldn’t! We take the guesswork out of working out your build budget, including costs for materials, labour, contingency and everything in between.

With every cost estimate, we produce an accurate breakdown of all the costs involved, so you can get your building project underway in no time.


How to get a building cost estimate

We’ll have your estimate back to you pretty swiftly! First, send us your plans via our contact form, with us as much information possible. We’ll then be in touch if we need more information before we prepare your cost estimate and follow up with any questions you may have. Unlike automated ‘estimate services’, our extremely talented team work independently on your estimate – so you’ll never be passed from pillar to post.
