Preliminary Cost Estimate - Prior to Construction

It seems that everyone who has ever built or renovated a home has a horror story to tell. Budget blowouts, unforeseen extras, builder variations there is an array of unpleasant surprises awaiting the ill-prepared home-owner embarking on a building project.

But you can protect yourself if you are properly prepared, and the first step to being prepared is to have a Preliminary Cost Estimate.

By conducting a Preliminary Cost Estimate right at the beginning of the design process, you will know up front what the project will cost to complete. Following your initial meeting, your architect will provide us with a basic design sketch, with simple floor plans, elevations and any special site or materials considerations. We then prepare a Cost Estimate for your approval, then you can proceed with the D.A., detailed drawings, legals and so on. This is where you start spending serious money, and you shouldn¹t do so unless you are confident that you have the design you want at a budget you are comfortable with.
  • Estimating to define project budgets
  • Analysis of the effect of design changes on the project budget
  • Cost planning to refine the budget as the design documents develop
