CONSTRUCTION COSTS

 

These published construction costs are only estimates based on general conditions. After we understand your building site including location, excavation, electrical hookups, septic, water on site, etc. and develop you construction and permitting we can then provide more precise costs for you specific custom project.  We can specify how accomplish what you need to build in your area and help coordinate with your local construction support.

Because the choices are so varied for insulation, waterproofing, drainage and back fill these prices are not included on this published list. After your plan is completed and material choices are selected these costs are estimated and added to your cost. Often local tradesmen complete these parts of the work with our guidance or you can DIY.

Once your custom plans are complete and your site is surveyed you can receive an itemized list of your costs. Our design, engineering and planning services are offered at a rate of $80 hourly. We will also coordinate with your personal architect if preferred. We can assist with getting your permits, design reviews, and financing submittals as required.

* All published prices are based on $100 per yard concrete cost, $650 per ton on steel and $80 hourly for pump truck fees. In some locations these costs are more. When local costs exceed these amounts, it is the responsibility of the owner building their project to pay for these additional costs.

Any deviations in basic module and additions during construction are priced separately at a labor rate of $65 per hour. Prices are based on Steel Rebar prices at $650 per ton. Additional costs may apply.

*Typically a 30% deposit of the proposed total basic concrete construction holds your place on our traveling crews construction list with a scheduled construction date and is applied to the final pours of your project. Full payment for each poured section is due within 3 days of completion or as defined by contractural agreed terms prior to construction.

Usually it takes two weeks to set up and pour each 600 to 1000 square foot of space including all exterior walls with dome and/or flat ceilings, roof and all door and window openings and electrical and plumbing conduit. This is typically faster than traditional framing systems.Then we consult as needed as your local contractor finishes your project to your plan and permitting specifications.

SO, Get started!  IT USUALLY TAKES 6 MONTHS OR MORE TO PLAN, ENGINEER & PERMIT A PROJECT due to the often long waits for permit processing.
