Residential Construction

What are Some of the Most Important Factors Influencing the Cost of Residential Construction?

The residential construction industry in South Africa has recovered significantly from the worldwide depression of the last part of the previous decade. New residential developments and homes are springing up throughout South Africa and the sector is experiencing increasingly positive growth. The costs of residential construction are an important consideration before starting any project, since nothing can be implemented without the proper resources being in place.

When undertaking a residential construction project, you need to be financially ready to meet the costs involved. The cost of construction is determined by current market trends. There are many elements that affect the ultimate price of residential construction in South Africa. The type of building elevations required also has a direct effect and impact on the cost of construction.

The materials used and their rates are also important factors that influence the ultimate cost of your project. This is especially true when you consider the many different types of building materials now available to the residential construction sector, aside from the conventional materials used in the past.

Other Aspects that Affect Residential Construction Costs in South Africa

Another crucial aspect that you cannot ignore is the impact and cost of labour. Depending on the size of the residential construction project, you will need different levels of labour. Hiring labour will cost money, which should form part of your overall budget. The projected length of time to completion will impact on this area of the budget, as well as the techniques that will be used and applied during the project.

Other areas that you will need to budget for include engineers, architects and contractors’ fees. Each of them plays a different but indispensable role with your residential construction project. When you approach us, at Gast, for all of your residential construction needs, we provide you with a thorough and comprehensive solution, so that you know exactly what is required of you in terms of commitment and financial resources.
