    As with all building work the builders cost can vary immensely depending on the type of finish and the specifications of your project. Some things that should be considered when calculating costs are:

    1. Site Access
    2. Site Conditions
    3. Specifications of building works and fit out
    4. Location

    The RIAI have published a comprehensive document that outlines building costs in Ireland in 2019.

    We have summarised the construction costs Ireland, for domestic works as outlined in the document below*:

    New build Single or Two Storey House Builders Cost:

    1. Standard Spec. Finish: €2,500 to €2,800 per metre sq
    2. High Spec. Finish: €2,800 to €3,500 per metre sq

    Single Storey Extension Costs:

    1. Standard Finish: €1,900 to €2,300 per metre sq
    2. High Spec Finish: €2,000 to €2,500 per metre sq

    Single Storey Extensions with the inclusion of kitchens or bathrooms can be higher. If the amount of space to be extended is lower, the cost per square metre will be higher due to economies of scale and fixed costs. Planning permission may be required depending on the project and planning permission costs should be considered.

    Two Storey Extension Costs:

    1. Standard Finish: €1,900 to €2,300 per metre sq
    2. High Spec Finish: €2,000 to €2,500 per metre sq

    Two Storey Extensions with the inclusion of kitchens or bathrooms can be higher. If the amount of space to be extended is lower, the cost per square metre will be higher due to economies of scale and fixed costs.
