Build Cost Calculator

build cost calculator

Whether you’re building new or extending, you will need to keep a tight rein on your budget. To help you with the bean counting, Selfbuild has partnered up with ProntoCalc to bring you a build cost calculator.

To get an idea of how much your project will cost, contractor-led, try out the FREE Selfbuild Build Cost Calculator below, in partnership with ProntoCalc.

The calculator is for build costs only.

Value added tax (VAT) applies to ROI projects but not to NI projects as new builds are VAT-exempt in the north.

The calculator excludes the cost of buying land and professional fees.

The costs are indicative and based on ProntoCalc’s regional cost analysis..

Each project is unique – unique house on a unique plot – and many factors go into the final cost. The actual cost of building a house will be very much dependent on exact location and design, to name just two variables.

For an accurate estimate, consider employing a quantity surveyor.

About ProntoCalc: ProntoCalc is a web-based build cost calculator for builders, architects and homeowners. The app uses a simple and straightforward data entry system to produce a 16 page PDF output which details all aspects of your build. You can input your own costings into the app as well.

Share and Enjoy !
