Most prices are for house lots. When remodelling these prices aren’t adequate to cover sub-contractors.
For example, only 66.24sqm of plasterboard & 35m of cornice in converting a double garage to extra bedroom and home office. Is it possible to tell Envisioneer that if the plasterboard required is less than 100sqm, add an extra 15% to the cost and if there’s less than 50 l.m. of cornice, add 17.5% /later, or should that be done in Quote Generator? /end afterthought
Actually it would be better if done per location. Picture a job where the home has to be elevated & slid back from the front alignment, built in underneath as well as being built to side boundary to accommodate a double garage. GF will be done first then trades return to renovate upstairs once GF is livable.
Quantities downstairs would be comparable to a new home (thus not needing a surcharge) but upstairs would.
I’d prefer NOT to have separate entries in the catalogue as jobs tend to change as the design progresses & one would have to remember to check if the first item needs to be REPLACEd every time changes are made.
Sorry can’t help you with that cause i don’t even use those features i already thought it would be fun to play around with but never got that far. I only do the blueprints the contractors like to do their own estimates and supplies list,
But i already wondered how acurate is it actually is when you do it that way?
Just curious for future knowledge so i know what to expect if i ever would use it.
As accurate as you want it to be! Just watch all the available videos.

But nobody can factor in the insanity that’s prevailing here due to COVID. Building has gone crazy. Plasterers (drywall=plasterboard in Oz) either won’t even quote small repair jobs OR want AU$1500+ in cash for a day’s work!
