Cost Guide 2022 is available – an update that describes increases in supply & labour associated with the flow on effects of COVID, international supply issues including eastern European conflict.

Archicentre Australia director Peter Georgiev says the Cost Guide helps those embarking on renovations, maintenance and new building works.

“There is little out there that provides a degree of transparency on building costs, so it is virtually impossible for most people to comprehend the costs involved.

“The updated guide provides information regarding common aspects of home repairs and maintenance as well as estimates for renovations and additions. It is based on use of standard materials, fixtures and finishes.”

“Cost Guide 2022 explains costs in a reasoned manner,” Peter Georgiev says, “as a precursor to seeking a site and building specific ‘opinion of probable cost’ provided when you engage an Archicentre Australia Design Architect to provide a feasibility sketch.

“The feasibility sketch provides more specific cost advice related to the individual project. Further definition will be achieved once the design is developed, costed by an independent quantity surveyor, and taken to competitive tender when actual prices are obtained.

Unlike many design professionals on offer, our Design Architects understand residential design and architecture – that’s why you can rely on their knowledge from feasibility stage through to the completion of construction to guide the process of you interfacing with the building industry.

“Compare it to the ‘add on’ costs of volume builders – you may be surprised,” he concludes.
