Is this enough detail for quotes?

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone, 

 

We got our planning permission through a few days ago (yay!), and we have some drawings from the engineer, so I think we can start trying to get some builders interested in quoting for getting our little barn and extension to watertight shell. I've attached a screenshot of the spreadsheet we've started and were thinking of sending to builders to quote through. Obviously we'll meet them at site etc but if we send this is gives a list of the things we'd like them to get done for this initial phase. Is this too simplistic? It's a small project so didn't want to go overboard. I might have missed some things. 

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

Hi nod, yes we'll be sending the drawings from the structural engineer with all of the detail on it like joist size, beam size, ceiling height, foundation and slab spec etc. Just wondering if this sheet would be OK to get the actual quote broken down.

Looks good to me - I have attached a screen shot of what I sent though along with all the relevant drawings etc. It seemed to work for me and proved to be the basis of what we have worked with since. The end column was for them to price up the various elements of that section of the project. the tabs at the bottom worked through the whole project in a similar vein.
