BUDGET PLANNER

 

This handy tool can help you to plan your total budget for plot and build. Fill in the appropriate amounts and the totals will be calculated automatically as you move through the form. We have given some suggested figures but you can use alternatives which are appropriate for your area. This is intended as an approximate guide only as costs can vary greatly from project to project depending on location, site conditions, specification and the competitiveness of local contractors.  For a more accurate estimate please use our Total Cost Calculators in our Members Area.  Here you can see an estimated total construction cost based on specification choices you have made.  There is also guidance on the costs of sewerage, site clearance etc. We would recommend using a QS for more certainty on cost.
