Don't have the time or know-how to navigate the design or pre-construction phase? Want someone to do it all for you? Don't worry, at HMA we now offer a Design and Construct service. Our team is ready to do all the hard work for you. Lead by builder Paul, and using our team of architects, draftspeople, surveyors, and engineers, we can organise the whole pre-construction phase for you and take you right through to the end of your build.
Often we hear stories of clients who have had their plans drawn up and sent to council and been approved, however once quotes have come in they are well and truly over budget. This is why we started our Design and Construct service. We were being asked to quote for jobs which were never going to go ahead as they had been over designed, designed without the clients budget in mind or without knowledge of actual building costs. This wasted everyone's valuable time and money.
With our design and construct service, we ensure this cost blowout doesn't happen. Paul liaises with our draftsman and architect all the way through the design phase, ensuring the design is within budget. Producing elemental estimates along the way and attending design meetings to give a build perspective.
Then, in the Fixed Price Cost Analysis stage, we use all the documentation produced to send to our suppliers and contractors. We shop around for the best pricing and do a detailed take off to produce an accurate fixed cost to carry out the build. Ensuring there are no huge surprises at the end.
