Is Engineering Included In The Design Quote?

The short answer is no. The cost of engineering is not included in the design quote as each project is different and it is too hard to guestimate engineering costs without seeing the proposed plans for a project. Once we receive complete design plans we can give a more accurate price for the engineering. This makes it cheaper for the customers as we don’t have to overestimate the costs.

The cost for engineering usually ranges between $1500 – $5000 depending on the size of the project.

What is Engineering?

Engineering is the process of getting a building engineer to inspect supports, loads and building materials used throughout the design and construction process, to determine if they are safe and can withstand certain conditions.

Building engineers are structural engineers who specialise in buildings. Buildings need to be able to hold up under all types of loading, including the weight of the building, the weight of the people and other things inside the building, and natural forces such as wind, gravity etc. A building engineer will consider all these forces and make sure the building is designed to be structurally sound.
