This project is located in a Conservation Area.

If you want to keep costs down it is essential to obtain competitive tenders from Builders. For this you need a good set of drawings. Obviously it also helps if you employ an Architect independent of any Builder.

We can also produce tender and contract documents, obtain tenders and monitor the work during construction.

To keep costs down you need to;
  1. Obtain proper drawings and tender documents.
  2. Allow reasonable working conditions & time to build.
  3. Obtain competitive tenders.
  4. Obtain detailed breakdown of the lowest tender.
  5. Keep any alterations to the existing building as simple as possible. Avoid complex structural work.
  6. Have a clear idea of what you want before you employ a builder. Avoid late changes and alterations. 
  7. Decide on finishes and suppliers before you obtain tenders.
  8. Employ a reputable builder.
At least 95% of your costs will be in the building work. Saving a few hundred on the drawings could cost you thousands on the build cost.
