Obtain Accuracy With Construction Estimates
Building estimates can deliver a high level of accuracy. The goal will be to provide an estimate that falls within 10% of the final construction costs. This will depend on the level of detail provided at the offset. We use an advanced cost database and an expert team of staff to offer the best building estimates possible to every client.
Calculating Building Materials
Budget estimates may be prepared based on initial sketches. However, they can also be delivered after a more detailed proposal. The most accurate estimates will be delivered when a significant amount of information is provided.
This will typically include both specifications and drawings. Calculating building materials will be different for every client and their requirements, whether you are developing new builds or building a new loft conversion.
The Benefits Of Budget Cost Estimates
It can be common to overspend on building projects which can put a project in jeopardy. This is particularly true where a large amount of finance has been secured. However, this is where budget cost estimates can help to prevent overspending. Benefits of budget estimates include the following:
Provides you with the knowledge you need and multiple options to consider.
Identifies potential ancillary costs that you may not have considered.
Includes everything from structural engineer fees to asbestos surveys and application fees.
How To Prepare An Accurate Estimate
When an estimate is prepared at the early stages, before detailed design and the project has been tendered for contractors, it can provide an accurate assessment of the expected costs from the beginning. This ensures that costs can be reined in and that the project is designed to match financial constraints.
Budget estimates will often be essential in certain building works where funding grants could have been applied for. In cases like this, it is crucial that you do choose an expert service to handle your budget estimate and ensure the most accurate report.
Can Budget Estimates Be Updated?
A budget estimate can be updated during the development of a project to ensure that it changes and continues to reflect the most likely cost of a project. Budget estimates are commonly updated for the following reasons:
- Cutting Costs
- Adding Services
- Extending Projects
