What Do I Need For A Building Budget Estimate?
Whatever drawings and other documentation you currently have available.
If you’ve just started getting your ideas together, it may consist of some sketch Plans and maybe a list of some of the fixtures and fitting that you would like.
At the Plan/Design Stage you may have a basic Floor Plan which will enable the Quantity Surveyor or Estimator to calculate the Floor Area and come up with a preliminary cost.
On smaller Building Projects where a Client is dealing directly with a Builder, the Building Budget is normally provided by the Builder.
As the size of the Building Project increases, either a Quantity Surveyor or an Estimator should be employed. The type of information that they will need are Drawings, Specifications and any Contract Documentation. These may come from a variety of Consultant sources such as Architects, Structural Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Hydraulic Engineers, etc.
All this documentation is necessary for a Quantity Surveyor or an Estimator to be able to accurately give the client a proper Building Budget. The more detailed information that is provided, the more accurate the Building Budget Estimate will be.
