‘On this project we’re working with a fixed budget and fixed scope of work. If there are unknowns you can have an allowance, but you can’t know or provide for all the unknowns, so this is not completely realistic. It’s more about being as meticulous as possible in the pre-planning process and budget planning stage, and then as the unknowns come up, we communicate budget implications, and if it should be done now, or if it can be done another time.’ Alex Dumitru, Level One Construction.

‘People looking to renovate need to understand the budget will fluctuate throughout the project. Yes, the roof was a surprise, but we also started the project thinking we would be having a full bathroom renovation upstairs, however as the engineering requirements changed that design, we saved money in the bathroom, which helped cover some of the roofing costs.’ Skyla Burden, homeowner.
