What will it cost to build?

Feasibility & Cost Report 

This is a relatively quick and inexpensive exercise that puts the project on the right financial track from the beginning. This service is provided collaboratively with Quantity Surveyor Andrew Scanlon.  

Included in the Feasibility Study:


·         Architect’s consultation to help tease out your requirements

·         A look at sample projects 

·         Brief Development – essentially a list of spacial and functional requirements

·         Materials & fittings discussion - windows, doors, kitchen, bathroom, flooring, etc.

·         Energy & Heating system discussion

·         Planning Permission guidance

·         Quantity Surveyor’s desktop analysis

·         Bill of Quantities 

Typically the Bill of Quantities is an eight page document setting out the project costs line by line. It will take a comprehensive look at costs allowing you to assess the affordability of the project at this early stage. You will be able to use the Bill of Quantities to help get a mortgage if one is required. 

The cost of the report is €400 + VAT = €492

Travel surcharges may apply depending on location.
