Low Cost Design Feasibility

An overview on how our services work to save you time and money.

Design Meeting

First we have a meeting and develop a design brief

Provide as much information in words or sketches As Possible of what you want.  the layout , the rooms and space, the style, inclusions, features etc and most important your budget. 

If you are happy with the meeting we then proceed with a low level feasibility assessment.

Low Cost Design Feasibility 

The feasibility is a way to see if what you want to do is viable to your needs and budget without going through expensive and time consuming process of working drawings, engineering and tendering.

In this stage we provide

A Preliminary Sketch

based on your Design Brief and our Experience to get you the best design. We will try and balance what you want with what is possible and advisable.

Preliminary Estimate

We will provide a preliminary build estimate based on the preliminary sketch using up to date price data and experience from recently completed builds and trade quotes. Anticipating structural and inclusion costs our estimates are highly accurate and can give you a good indication on how much your building aspirations cost.

With this information we can do what we like to call 'cost planning' in that we can amend the design according to its initial build cost and ensure you get the best value for your money.

Using the cost planning process we do iterations until the plans get to the most golden mean of budget and desire. 

Once you are happy with the design and deem the project viable we can go on to the preliminary drafting stage where we do working drawings, engage consultants such as Engineers and Town planners and get real trade quotes to check our estimate against the most up to date prices.

Once the drafting work is nearing completion we can also do contracts and engage an excellent trade based builder on your behalf.

Trade based builders

large builders are able to negotiate volume discounts, this is true. They also have huge overheads that more than offset any volume discount gains.

Trade Builders on the other hand, are hands on, and unless they are burdened with large customer servicing costs, have small overheads. We focus on providing these builders with integrated design and specification services that sets up the project and allows them to provide efficient and responsive service to prospective customers, without piling on additional overhead.

By helping them aggregate their supply orders, this helps them combine low overhead with low-costs.

This real time build cost information allow us to properly estimate building costs, and incorporate them into the home design process.

We now have a trifecta

-Cost planned custom home design

-Experiences, reputable and competent hands on builders.

-Low Cost.

Testimonials from Our Clients

Amazing feedback from our clients

"We had some Plans Drawn by another group, had difficulty getting anyone to quote on it and when we did the price seemed unrealistic to us... It really was that Building Buddy wanted to know how much to spend and design to that, rather than get plans drawn up and take it to the market and find out that is not near what you wanted it to cost."

Bernie and Marylin Smith

"I would not hesitate to recommend Building Buddy for any building project, whether you really need all their skill or not. You can never know when specialist knowledge of an issue at hand will come in handy, as it did on ours."

Carmel Davy

"Having a look on the internet for plans ...but we didn’t have much luck, we then came across building buddy ...I don’t know how but they just managed to nail everything we wanted in a design... It seemed like a very quick process, one minute we had a design, next minute we had the quote and the next minute we had builders."
