Full Contract

Postby firsttimebuilder » November 25th, 2014, 1:01 pm

Hi All,
I am planning to construct basement/GF/FF. The Civil Engineer/Architect is suggesting his charges would be cost of the material + 10 %.

Can somebody suggest is it ok to agree for cost+10% agreement. Any valuable feedback is greatly appreciated.

My Contractor is quoting 1850 per Sqft for G+2(G- 2 bed room for rental and 1 and 2 are duplex). The quote does not include compound wall and vitrified tiles (cost Rs. 60). I don't know if its too much. I am also looking for a feed back.

@firsttimebuilder- depends on what all work is being quoted. For the structure (includes everything except for Interior design) is about 5-6%. this will include all drawings, elevation, floor plans, electrical and plumbing plans, stairs design, house flooring designs, paint scheme.
If the architect is also doing all interiors, then 10% is decent. this would additionally include your wardrobes, kitchen, furnishing etc.

@ashok-1850 without flooring is too much. anyway, this is not the right away of take a quote. A Basic contract can start from Rs 1300/- going all the way till 2500/- and even beyond. first take a quote and check what Cement, sand, steel, flooring, paint, plumbing, fittings, tiles etc is being given in the quote. Don't fix up the price upfront. If you want, I can give you details about the contractor who did my house. cheers.

mgmprasad, rrprakash,

You can speak to Gopal (7676277763). He is currently working on my project (6300 sft) which is pretty much done on structure portion and in finishing stage. I am reasonably happy with his work. If needed you can have a look at my site near Jambu Savari Dinne @J P Nagar 8th Phase. PM me for details.

My contractor is pretty good and I have found him to be a very ethical person. Where is your site located ? I can check with him and provide details. He generally does not take more than 2 projects at a time due to monitoring challenges and he cannot travel very far so I will need to check with him first
