As an architect, when working with clients on new buildings, extensions and other projects, you will often be asked, ‘How much will it cost?’
Providing a budget for someone is a tricky business. Too large a figure could frighten some away. Too small and you risk leaving a bad taste when the price comes back higher than your budget. Both resulting in a potential loss of work!
At B.E.S. Ltd, we can help you provide a more accurate budget in the initial stages of a project, giving piece of mind to both you and your client. This helps you:
• Assess the affordability of a proposed development
• Make design changes to remain more in line with your client’s budget
Whether working from planning proposals or Building Regulation approved plans, we can provide an accurate budget using calculators designed from our extensive experience in construction estimating. By breaking down each area of the build, our budgets are far more accurate than any ‘ball park’ figure.
By using our services alongside your own, the normal design constraints and restrictions can be assessed in the early stages of a project, resulting in a more comprehensive and competitive design process.
Further to providing a budget cost, B.E.S. Ltd can also provide full, fixed-price estimates and, if necessary, suggest potential building contractors that would be suitable for your project.
