Frequently Asked Questions about New Build
What’s the cost of New Build?
In the UK, homeowners report the average cost to build a new house to be in the region of £300K+. A 2,000 square foot home (which has approximately 3 bedrooms) would therefore cost £150 per square foot. Many factors can influence this cost, such as the materials used or the grade of the property’s interior fit-out. Using this number as a guide, the costs could range between £250K and £350K. A 4,000 square foot home (which has approximately 5 bedrooms) would cost: £500-600K @ £150 per square foot.
How long does it take to build a house?
Construction times normally depend on how big and complex the project is. A big house can easily take up to 16 months to build. However, the complexity and square meterage of the design are not the only aspects that will impact construction times. Difficult weather conditions and design changes can also lead to longer construction times. It is key that you choose the right team of people to take you through the construction stage to obtain the best end result. At Extension Architecture we have years of experience in liaising with builders and contractors.
Will I need an Engineer?
If you are looking to build your dream home you will need structural calculations and an experienced engineer to produce technical drawings. Our engineers have experience of designing structures using steel, concrete, glass, timber and aluminium, they are aware of market conditions and advice on the appropriate design of a particular project.
I’m highly recommending Extension Architecture for their expertise to turn around a difficult planning application that I had refused from 2 other architects and they managed to get my additional new house at the end. A 3 year journey, but it was well worth it! I cannot appreciate enough their planning knowledge, and also now we are breaking ground. Their tender pack has saved me alot of hassle in choosing material inside the house myself. Especially their kitchen design has been great and cannot wait to see it realised. Thanks for all your input so far…
Delighted with the application approval that we got yesterday. As discussed initially, we were dubious of our chances as our property in Weybridge sits in a flood risk area + conservation area. But our full application for the 4m extension to the rear have been approved without any hassle. Also Elmbridge council was able to give us the approval within 7 weeks, so an added bonus. Thanks Especially to Youno who was very helpful in outlining all the pitfalls and guiding us to this position.
Thank you for your efficient service. Really impressed with the level of service and the speed!
Working with Nadir at Extension Architecture was a truly trouble-free experience. They explained the process and was always at hand whenever I had questions. I trusted their judgement whenever they provided amendments to my initial plan and was thoroughly happy with the end result! 11/10
