    The house will be built according to the design plans by our team. You will get a dedicated project manager to oversee the whole process. We have a dedicated online portal on which you will have full access to the ongoing progress of the project. Monitor whether it’s on target and collaborate in real time. You can easily view, store and share files as the project progresses.

    The build itself will consist of a number of stages which you can monitor online:

    1. Siteworks
    2. Build of structure
    3. Roofing
    4. External finishing
    5. Internal structure
    6. Services
    7. Internal finishing

    You will have the opportunity to go through the work of the building with a final snag list. We will provide warranties and guarantees of our work to ensure peace of mind for every client.

    Cost of House extensions Cork

    When building an extension the costs can vary immensely depending on the type of finish and the specifications of your extension. Some things that should be considered when calculating cost of extension Ireland:

        1. Site Access
        2. Site Conditions
        3. Specifications of building works and fit out
        4. Location
        5. Renovation to existing house

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

    We have summarised the extension costs Ireland, as outlined in the document below*:

    Single Storey House Extensions Cork:

        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.
