What you can expect to achieve

We believe in providing our clients with more than just numbers. We’ve carefully crafted our approach in producing enough information in our work without being too overwhelming. If you’re still unsure, contact us to see an example of our comprehensive estimate. Our estimates are easily understood, allowing you to go through our work in the same logical steps you would build it. 

Build projects can be complicated and stressful enough without the added complication of not understanding the cost of a build. One question we are often asked is: Where do you obtain your rates? We…

  • Work with contractors on a daily basis, so our labour rates are always up to date.
  • We also work closely with suppliers and obtain our material rates in a number of ways. We have an online material database that pulls through the latest prices from some of the biggest suppliers.
  • We also work alongside local suppliers to obtain general pricing & specialist quotes.

Our process

Within the descriptions under each build phase you will be provided with the types of allowances and materials we’ve allowed for, it’s these details that will enable you to keep control over build costs.

01.
Turn around.

Typical turnaround for estimates is 10 working Days. (This is dependant on size and complexity). If you have specific requirements or are in need of a quicker turnaround, get in touch.

02.
Save time.

Using our estimating service can help your clients to understand build costs as early as possible. This can speed up the design phase of a build, with less revisions & less time wasted.

03.
Save money.

A clients budget isn’t endless, understanding the cost of your design earlier can save your clients some serious money down the line. It will also keep your projects on track and moving forward.

04.
Expectations.

Nobody likes to discuss money. We have found that talking money as early as possible helps to manage clients expectations, builds trust & gives them the ability to make informed decisions.

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.

nice-perspective-home-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 there 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 same time on what sometimes seems like endless revisions and most importantly, a happy customer.
