what do the prices include?

Our prices are broken down into 3 categories – the cost of the building shell, the building fully fitted-out and an approximate cost of what the total building project may be. Listed below are the elements that are included in each.

Savings can be as much as 20% on multiple buildings through larger quantities of materials and components and the sharing of preliminaries such as site equipment etc.

The highly specified building shell would include:

  •   •  insulated timber frame panel system with all membranes & fixings
  •   •  cladding and roofing – the standard option being a vertical Larch cladding
  •   •  external doors and windows – composite timber aluminium frames
  •   •  internal doors and ironmongery
  •   •  ventilation duct work
  •   •  first-fix plumbing and sanitary frames
  •   •  first fix electrics and cabling
  •   •  dry lining boards
  •   •  internal fittings such as skirting boards and balustrades

The fitting-out of a dwelle.ing would consist of:

  •   •  hot water cylinder
  •   •  underfloor heating system
  •   •  sanitary fittings
  •   •  sockets & switches
  •   •  light fittings
  •   •  kitchen
  •   •  kitchen appliances
  •   •  wall finishes
  •   •  flooring

The approximate overall project cost includes the typical price for foundations & utility connections, Structural Engineers foundation design fees, Approved Inspector fees, Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), Structural Warranty, site insurance, transportation, crane, specialist lifting equipment, material storage, site fencing, welfare and waste removal.

This is only a guide price… although we can provide a fixed price for the building itself, site-specific factors will have an impact on the total cost, such as the site location, ground conditions (which will determine the type of foundations we use) and proximity to utility connections.

You can also select from a wide range of additional elements or options that will personalise your project – these additional cost items include:

  •   •  renewable energy systems such as PV solar panels or an air source heat pump
  •   •  rainwater harvesting (although we include the separate plumbing so this can be easily added in the future)
  •   •  PCM boards (that simulates thermal mass)
  •   •  a KNX automated building system (to control lighting, heating, blinds etc)
  •   •  triple glazing
  •   •  rooflights
  •   •  fitted furniture such as cupboards, desk and shelves

Please note that all of our costs may vary from time to time due to market conditions and general design development. Our prices don’t include land or VAT (but new homes are often zero-rated).
