A great example of how Enduro can (within reason) bring your over budget home back to something feasible.
This project started out with an architect who designed the house purely using a square meter rate without consideration to what would be included in it.
We were asked to tender on the project by a friend of the clients, and initially declined as we know that tendering is often an exercise in confirming just how far over the budget a design is. In this case though (and luckily for us) we got our arms twisted. The first meeting with the client wasn’t all that much fun as we hit with them our budget expectation being about double what their actual budget was. In the same meeting we offered some easy wins for cost savings that didn’t change how the house would look.
We then tendered and were the middle price. With a long list of non-design impacting cost savings we then negotiated to a final contract price, that, while over their original budget, presented much better value for money than the original architectural spec, all without compromising the look and feel of the house.
