3.Can you explain more about saving 40% on your building?
We built demonstration project in Ruiru and after completion, the difference between a BQ using contractor rates and our method ended up at 40%. Here is a demonstration video of the project https://bit.ly/2wnZ3M0
4. How do you calculate this build cost?
Our BQs and costs are calculated as costs of material and labour. They don’t factor in the contractor's profit.
We believe you can save by co-ordinating with our online tools, as well as working with a site supervisor.
The figures provide a guide as you build and manage rather than to rely simply on labourers or others as to what material quantity is needed and how much it will cost.
It is important to understand that final costs do vary with finishing materials that the customer chooses, as well as how they have managed their site.
5. Do you do custom designs?
At the price of Ksh. 20,000 it’s not possible to do complete plan designs as the professionals' time is very expensive. The architect, engineers and quantity surveyors for each plan would work out at KSh. 100,000 or more.
We can do some small customisation of existing plans but not anything more.
Perhaps you can look for a plan at inuua.net/plans/ you may like and see what could work for you and your family?
6. Can I have modifications done on a plan?
We can do small modifications but it would be up to our partner architects to decide to what extent they can do the modifications.
You can email us with some notes on an Inuua plan firstname.lastname@example.org and we can then see how to help you!
