Cost Engineering

“Beautiful Design, 4 bedrooms, 13.8% Saving”


Box™ is always proud of the homes we build, the hours of design work, the blood, sweat and sometimes tears of our Builders all come together to give our clients something special, a little bit different and uniquely Box™.


Sometimes these efforts result in a such great spaces and a great home that we sit back and think, maybe we could do that better.


It is in our DNA, we are a group of Designers, Quantity Surveyors and Builders all working together in a co-operative atmosphere to deliver a premium build experience at a fair cost.


This is such a home, the foundation of this design is a fantastic home in Point Chevalier in Auckland, our clients inspired us to deliver on their sub-divided site and with the inclusion of a self contained space catering to the changing needs of their family. Box™ is especially proud of the quality of this build. Taking this design we sat down and studied our work, talked with the Build team and the QS team (the costing guru’s) to work out how we could deliver a 4 bedroom home with a garage and a self contained space within a footprint suited to a sub-divided site at a really fair cost. With a few alterations to the layout and a 8% reduction in size we saved 13.8% in cost and delivered on our own brief.


If you think we may be able to help you build your dream home at a fair cost and you want to be part of the process then how about booking a workshop.
