More about the importance of smart project planning

Failure to accurately plan the costing of your North Melbourne construction can affect everybody involved with the project. You or your client can be left with an unfinished project and no budget to finish it, and architects and contractors may be out of pocket for work that they have already completed.

In a lot of cases, a failed project can further impact finances via long drawn out legal action.

The importance of project cost planning goes beyond ensuring the best chance of finalising the construction, as actual costs can also help ensure you get the best ROI for every dollar invested.

 

Save at least 10% on your building cost

In most Melbourne building costing jobs completed by Newin, we’ve been able to save clients from 10% to 15% because of our unique process which highlights opportunities for savings that may otherwise slip by unnoticed.

With most projects reaching into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not hard to see that these sorts of savings can potentially reduce the cost of your project by tens of thousands of dollars.

How Much Does It Cost to Build in Melbourne?

It’s not just the price of land which can impact the value of the home, but other variables can affect construction costs as well. In Australia, an average lot size is 251.7 sqm, which means that the average building costs will come in at around $320,000 when you consider the average of $1,270.80 per sqm.

The average price can provide a ball-park figure for most suburban homes, but when you add architectural design into the pricing, the value can jump to $3,000 per sqm, and often goes all the way to up to well over $5,000 per sqm.

New Home Builds Are Becoming More Expensive in Australia

What’s behind this increase in construction costs? The answer lies in a few key factors. Energy costs are going up globally, which affects the price of some construction materials like cement, glass, and aluminum. These are energy-intensive resources, meaning they require a lot of power to produce.

Supply chain issues have also played a part. Even though things are improving, builders in Australia still sometimes struggle to get certain materials quickly. For instance, concrete, which requires a lot of energy and space for transport, is one material that can be difficult to obtain.
