2023 cost guide - Archicentre AustraliaCost Guide 2023 – updated to reflect the ongoing increases of supply & labour associated with the flow on effects of climate change, COVID, international supply issues including the Ukrainian war.

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

“As in previous years, this guide provides information on common aspects of home repairs and maintenance as well as cost advice for renovations and additions. It assumes standard materials, fixtures and finishes. It is not a substitute for a site specific idea of scope and cost.”

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.

“Cost Guide 2023 is a mechanism to begin design consideration of new building or renovation works. The next step is to have an Archicentre Australia design architect provide clients with a Design Feasibility – and this really kick starts a meaningful process,” Peter Georgiev says.

“A sketch process combined with a site and building specific ‘opinion of probable cost’ is the sensible precursor to more developed statutory and contract documentation stages of the building procurement process. “

Archicentre Australia’s Design Architects understand residential design and architecture – that’s why clients can rely on their knowledge from feasibility stage through to the completion of construction.

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