What is the M2 Rate for a Renovation or Extension?


This is a question we get asked quite a bit – and the answer is…. 'absolutely we can!' However, we do need to obtain some critical information first via a site consultation first. Be very wary of anyone who gives you an amount over the phone, especially without seeing your home or proposed project. It’s common to get a low-ball figure and get stuck with 10’s of thousands of cost overruns and variations during the project. The square metre rate can be easily worked out by yourself, but it’s not the question to ask first.

The first question you must ask yourself before you even begin on the renovating or building journey is ‘How much am I comfortable spending?

If you don’t know the answer, the architect and builder won’t, and you are at risk of going down the path of having unrealistic plans drawn up that can never be built.
