Current Market Trends and Influences

 The construction industry is subject to dynamic market trends, and economic conditions, material costs, and labour rates play pivotal roles in influencing pricing. At ZS Construct Limited, we stay proactive in monitoring these trends, ensuring our clients are well-informed throughout the decision-making process.


Factors Impacting Extension Cost

 1. Size and Scope: The size and complexity of your extension are primary cost determinants. As a rough guide, a single-storey extension in 2024 can cost between £1,200 and £1,500 per square meter, while a two-storey extension may range from £1,500 to £2,000 per square meter.

 2. Materials: Material choices significantly affect costs. For instance, kitchens and bathrooms, known for their intricate fixtures and finishes, can substantially hike up prices. As a guide, the inclusion of high-quality kitchen fittings and bathroom fixtures could add an additional £10,000 to £20,000 to the overall cost.

 3. Design Complexity: Unique designs may incur additional costs. As a guide, a more intricate design could add 10% to 15% to the overall project cost.

 4. Location: Geographical factors influence costs. In England, particularly in urban areas, construction costs may be higher due to accessibility and local regulations.


Additional Considerations: Electrical and Plumbing Work

 When planning your property extension, it’s crucial to consider additional aspects such as electrical and plumbing work. Older properties may require a full re-wire, adding to the overall costs. Plumbing work, especially in extensions involving kitchens or bathrooms, also contributes to the budget. As a guide, allowing an extra £5,000 to £10,000 for electrical and plumbing work is advisable.
