During this meeting, we will also discuss how Edina Building Group can get your new project built on time within your desired budget and saving you thousands of dollars whilst we review your project working drawings and relevant documents.
Following our first meeting, we consider all the information to give you an indication of our expected ballpark Building Cost. This enables you to decide your project budget and required time frame to start working towards milestones.
Our ballpark Cost Indication Proposal is then prepared and presented back to you along with a selection of specifications before the real fun begins.
