Fast, quality Estimating Service for UK builders
If you’ve got an extension, new build, garage or loft conversion that you need pricing up, let our expert estimators price it quickly, yet accurately. If you’re a builder it will help you win the project and make the profit on it you’d expect. And if you’re a home owner, it’ll confirm the going rate for your project. If you’re a builders merchant why not outsource your client take offs, and free up branch staff.
You'll get a really professional Estimate Pack reports as MS Excel files which includes; a detailed breakdown of costs, materials/labour and plant schedules, a suggested build program, a quotation for your client (as an editable MS Word file) plus a schedule of estimate assumptions we've made so you're absolutely clear on what's been included in your estimate
Supply your logo and we'll brand the client quotation for you too!
We offer 2 services levels. Essential or Premium.
The Essential Service uses our default specifications which meet the 2013 versions of the Approved Documents for Conservation of Fuel and Power (Part L). The Premium Service Uses specification details from your plans and tender pack.
We don’t mean to blow our own trumpet but we have been used to price up nearly £300Million worth of building work on homes, extensions and renovations all over the UK.
With HBXL you can have peace of mind, knowing your project is accurately priced down to the last screw - with your labour rates and mark-up built in plus peace of mind we have Professional Indemnity insurance in place.
Unlike other estimating services on the market, we go that extra mile. We never miss a deadline because we use award-winning EstimatorXpress® to ensure fast turnaround and total accuracy.
To make sure your estimate is bang on, we offer a service called Price Tracker, which links every estimate we do to the absolute latest building materials prices or alternatively if you trade with TradePoint we can use their material prices. The reason we do this is because inflation on building materials is very high and can have a massive impact on your project. We can also incorporate any prices you’ve had from suppliers already into your estimate if you’d like…such as timber frame, or kitchen or tiles you’d like. With our bespoke service we can incorporate your labour rates, your typical mark-up, and we'll also add client details so that your quote is ready to go as soon as you receive it!
Tell us your anticipated project start date and we'll even provide you with a suggested build programme, and we include a schedule of estimate assumptions we've made so you're absolutely clear on what's been included in your estimate.
If you are an EstimatorXpress user we'll even supply you with the EstimatorXpress file together with your quote so you can import it into your software so you can make any revisions as needed once your project is underway and manage the project end to end with its handy management reports.
It's easy to get hold of your estimate. Please either email your plans to email@example.com OR upload them now so we can tell you the fees we would charge to estimate the cost of your project for you and your delivery date. No obligation.
We accept PDF/BMP/JPEGS drawings. Once we’ve confirmed you’re happy with the price and delivery date, we take payment - by Credit, Debit card or by BACS transfer.
Prices are based on the external area of your proposed development. The area is calculated by adding together the external areas of each floor.
For NEW BUILDS the area includes each floor of the main house and integral garages. Loft areas should also be included by measuring to the outside of loft walls. Out-buildings and detached garages will be priced separately – see their associated fee bands.
For EXTENSIONS the price includes associated works, i.e. immediately adjacent structural openings.
Prices for REFURBISHMENT and other alterations will be given on application.
