3 Introduction
The aim of the Construction Handbook is to provide a comprehensive reference work on New
Zealand building costs and other related information, for those involved in the various disciplines of
the construction and property industries.
The Handbook has achieved a reputation as the leading authority on the various aspects of
construction costs in New Zealand, and is recognised as an authoritative text in the courts for cases
relating to disputes in respect of construction cost.
This edition, like previous editions, is committed to the dissemination of information necessary to
implement cost control, cost management and cost benefit studies effectively at all stages of
planning and construction.
It should be stressed that attention must be given to the particular circumstances and conditions of
the project being reviewed, when using the data contained in this Handbook.
Please read the “How to use this Handbook” section, and the introductory notes to each chapter, as
an essential part of using this handbook effectively.
3.1 Your Suggestions
We welcome suggestions and feedback. Fax, phone or email the editor.

Estimating—Building Costs Per Square Metre
Page 0-6

4 How to Use This Handbook


4.1 Estimating—Building Costs Per Square Metre
This provides the average cost range for a wide selection of typical buildings. Whilst square metre
costs are recommended for use in initial feasibility studies only, they also provide the base figure in
the valuation of buildings. However, when so used they should be adjusted as described in the
following “Elemental Costs of Buildings”.
It should be noted that as the figures given are for a typical building on a flat site, adjustment must
be made for such factors as sloping sites, ground conditions, unusual shape and other design
considerations.
The costs given are based on the total floor area of all levels measured between the outer faces of
external walls. Refer to page 11-548 for information on Measurement of Buildings. Refer to page 1-
10, “How to use this Section” for further information.
There is a worked example included at the end of this section. It gives a sample layout of an
estimate, giving examples of the additional items to be added to the base m2 cost, in order to arrive
at a comprehensive estimate. See “Worked Example” on page 1-31.
Estimating—Elemental Costs of Buildings
This assists in the compilation of a more accurate cost per square metre, through evaluation and
adjustment of the mean figures of the various elements of the foregoing typical buildings, to reflect
the particular building being examined. Examples of major variations from the typical are: special
facade treatments, the extent of floor finishes, whether or not the building services include air
conditioning, lifts, etc.
4.2 Estimating—Comparative Costs
The more detailed rates given in this section allow for a finer adjustment of the elemental costs,
through the application of unit costs to a particular element, i.e. different design treatments such as
facades, interior finishes, etc.
The costs given are “all up” estimating costs, i.e. they include allowances for sundry labour items
such as forming angles, and other minor items. For items not covered in this section, it will be
necessary to refer to the “Detailed Rates” section.
4.3 Detailed Rates
These provide a wide range of costs for particular items in all trades and services. The prices given
do not, unless stated to the contrary, include allowances for sundry labour items such as forming
angles, and other minor items. If using these prices to complement the rates of “Estimating—
Comparative Costs”, it will be necessary to make due allowance for such minor items. Depending
on the project, an allowance of between 5% and 10% would normally suffice.
At all times, when using any of the foregoing figures, the nature and specific requirements of the
particular project must be borne in mind.
4.4 Construction Indices
Various published indices, relevant to the construction industry.
4.5 Regional Indices
An indication of the locality adjustment factor to be applied to the figures for base cities, in order to
arrive at a figure for smaller centres.

How to Use This Section


Costs given hereafter should be used for initial feasibility studies only, and are average prices for
the base building works, for typical buildings, at June 1st, within the city areas.
Add to the base building cost for exclusions listed below, and for any other factors deemed to be
necessary for the completion of the project. Add additional allowances for work in country areas,
See “Regional Indices” on page 6-501.
For a worked example of an estimate, See “Worked Example” on page 1-31.
Costs are based on the total floor area of all levels, measured over all external walls. Costs given
should be adjusted to take account of such factors as sloping sites, foundation problems, higher
wall to floor ratios, unusual building shape, small or cramped site, firewalls to boundaries,
infrastructure upgrades to territorial authority services, remote locality, and any special design
factors where costs can vary from the range given.
Costs can provide no more than a rough guide to the probable cost of a building. Whilst in many
instances, a single rate is sufficient to indicate the average cost, there are many other instances,
such as banks, function centres, theatres, churches, residential buildings, where costs can vary
considerably from the range given.
For a more detailed breakdown, and to assist in the compilation of a more accurate estimate, See

How to Use This Section


Definitions
“An element is a component part of a building or a development which, irrespective of design or
method of construction, tends to perform the same function.”1
GFA = Gross Floor Area
Purpose
This section is intended as an approximate guide to the value of the various elements of the
buildings in Chapter 1. Item numbers and page numbers quoted with each elemental breakdown
refer to the equivalent items in Chapter 1. In all cases, refer to these items for the full descriptions of
the building, particularly with regard to scope, inclusions and exclusions. Note that the elemental
percentages are indicative rather than definitive.
The “Total” cost given is the approximate mean of the cost range for the respective buildings in
Chapter 1. The breakdown into elemental costs enables evaluation and adjustment of the figure
used for initial feasibility studies.
All costs within this section are those pertaining to Auckland. Please note that because these
figures are based on Auckland buildings, adjustments may be required for items such as heating,
etc., to reflect building practices in other areas.
Exclusions
Costs exclude
• land, demolition
• balconies, covered ways, parking areas
• external services more than 3.0m from the outside face of the building
• data and telephone services
• external works other than those immediately adjacent to the building
• loose Furniture, Fittings or Equipment (FF&E).
• legal and professional fees
• Goods and Services Tax (G.S.T.)
Worked Example
The percentages and $/m2 given in the following tables represent values relative to the GFA, or
gross floor area, and not to the area of the particular element being considered. See the worked
example on the next page, where the Upper Floor element is repeated at the bottom of the table.
The Elemental Costs of $55.20/m2 and $127.05/m2, for A and B respectively, are not costs for a
square metre of actual upper floor for each of those buildings. Instead, they are a proportion of the
total m2 cost, which, if multiplied by the GFA—which of course includes the ground floor—would
give the cost of the Upper Floors for those buildings.
For A, $57.96 x 600m2 GFA equals $34,776, which, if divided by the actual area of Upper Floor for
that building, i.e., 300m2, gives a cost/m2 for the actual Upper Floors of $115.92.
For B, $132.83 x 7,500m2 GFA equals $996,188, which, if divided by the actual area of Upper
Floor for that building, i.e., 7,200m2, gives a cost/m2 for the actual Upper Floors of $138.36.

Introduction
Purpose
Page 3-63

Introduction
Purpose
This section is intended as a guide to the ‘all-up’ unit costs of various materials, systems and
treatments that make up the various elements of a building. It can be used as a half-way step
between the ‘square metre’ estimating methods of the Building Costs per Square Metre section,
and a fully measured and priced estimate using the Detailed Rates section.
This section is particularly useful for budget estimating from preliminary sketch drawings, and with
care can give an accurate assessment of the cost of a final design.
Elements
An element is a component part of a building or a development that, irrespective of the design or
method of construction, tends to perform the same functions. For example, the Frame section
contains costs per metre for columns of reinforced in-situ concrete, precast concrete, and structural
steel. For a fuller explanation of elements, See “Definition of Elements” on page 2-36.
Rates
The rates given in this section assume an average size of structure, type of construction and level
of difficulty. As the average building rarely occurs, it is necessary to analyse where the building
under consideration differs from the average. Once the differences have been analysed, then
decide which of the various elements of the building will be affected by these differences, and make
due allowances for such differences.
It may be necessary to obtain full details for the ‘abnormal’ elements, in order that the whole
estimate should have some real meaning. If such details are not available, then make a suitable
allowance in the rates, for individual parts of the affected elements.
Some examples of differences, related to Elements, are as follows

Difference from ‘Average’ Element Affected


Soft site conditions Substructure
Reservoir on the roof Roof
Low floor to wall ratio Structural Walls
High stud height External Walls & External Finishes
Internal Walls and Partitions
Wall Finishes

Exclusions
Costs exclude
• land, demolition
• balconies, covered ways, parking areas
• external services more than 3m from the outside face of the building
• data and telephone services
• external works other than those immediately adjacent to the building
• loose Furniture, Fittings or Equipment (FF&E).
• legal and professional fees
• Goods and Services Tax (G.S.T.)

Lifts and Escalators
Criteria

19 Lifts and Escalators


19.1 Criteria
There are many criteria to consider before selecting the number of lifts and the type of lifts required
for a particular building. The following is a brief explanation of those criteria to assist with estimating
only, and should not be used for design or specification purposes.
Number of People Using the Lifts. Detailed traffic studies of the building population are carried
out to determine Peak Loadings, Cross Peak Flows and Peak Loading Times.
These parameters will vary depending on various factors, all of which play a significant part in
determining lift selection. Some of these factors are:
• The type of building, for example, hotel or office block
• The nature of use of each floor, for example, carpark, retail, etc.
• The tenancy arrangement of the building, for example, multi-level tenancies or inter-floor
traffic
Number of Floors to Be Serviced. Lifts can generally be classified in three types:
• Geared Traction Lifts: Suitable for buildings up to 12 floors.
• Gearless Lifts: Suitable for lifts over 12 floors
• Hydraulic Lifts: Suitable for buildings up to 4 floors.
Waiting Interval. The time the lift system takes to respond to a call at the principal lower entry
terminal.
Handling Capacity. The system’s ability to move an agreed percentage of the building population
in a given period.
Number of Lifts—Estimating Guide for Offices. The following information is for approximate
estimating purposes only. For accurate assessment of lift size, speed and numbers required refer
to a lift manufacturer or consulting engineer for traffic study analysis.

some, if not all, councils.
• Methods of calculating fees were also reviewed
in many cases.
• It is not possible to summarise building consent
fees here, as the information available from
councils varies between full disclosure on their
website to very little information available.
• The information that is freely available tends to
be mind-boggling in its complexity.
• In all cases, please refer to the relevant Council
for confirmation of fees.

Page 4-127

1.20 Insurances
Contractors All Risk Insurance
This type of policy provides cover to the Contractor during the construction of a building for
damages caused by fire, rain, wind, explosion, accidental or malicious damage, burglary and theft.
The extent of the policy should be checked and additional cover arranged to suit each particular
contract as necessary for items such as: plant, tools and equipment, vibration and removal of
support, piling work, temporary buildings and structures, plate glass fixing and removal, demolition
and clearance of site, indemnity to the principal, damage to underground installations
Blanket Cover—This is substantial annual cover which is pre-arranged and based on projected
turnover. It is adjusted retrospectively when actual turnover is calculated for the year. Cover can be
set at the anticipated maximum level or alternatively at a lower or average level and special
extensions applied for only when required.
Separate Cover—A separate cover for each contract is negotiated making allotment of costs per
project easier to establish.
Premium Rates
These vary considerably depending on the type of construction, duration of cover, builder’s track
record, amount of self insurance, etc. Insurance companies consider contract works under four
main categories. Rates shown as a percentage of contract value (including consultants fees,
temporary works, demolition and removal of debris) are a guide only, and more competitive rates
may be achieved on application.
Civil works Bridges, dams, roadwork 0.50–0.80%
Building works Commercial and industrial 0.20–0.50%
Building works Residential 0.15–0.20%
Engineering works Erection and installation of plant etc. 0.14–0.18%
Public Liability Insurance
This cover is calculated on the contract value for the project. In the case of sub-contractors and
labour only gangs, the Builder may effect cover OR require sub-contractors to provide evidence of
the existence of insurance cover which complies with the terms of the head contract.
The following are examples of the order of cost of this item.
