WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU GET


The Calculation of Building Costs Report is a lengthy document. It is structured according to typical construction stages, for example: site establishment, excavation, foundations, superstructure, roofing, plastering etc. This allows for accurate progress payments to be made and the ordering of materials to be done timeously. Each construction stage is further broken down to reflect:


  • Material details: the precise number of cubic metres of aggregates, bags of cement, brick quantities, rolls of brick-force, litres of paint, lengths of skirting,doorstops etc

  • Labour and sub-contractor rates: for each facet of building, e.g. cost to lay bricks, plaster walls, erect the roof, hang doors, paint walls, and fix tiles etc.

  • Allowances: are made for items such as steel re-enforcing, termite poison and other items that may not be indicated on the plan but may be necessary during construction.


The Calculation of Building Costs Report ends with a summary and a list of provisional sums and P.C. amounts for items such as kitchen fittings and appliances, light fittings, swimming pool, landscaping, wine racks etc.
