Let our architects, designers and engineers support you at each step, helping to make your dream home come true. You deserve the best, and Fittra knows how to custom build new homes perfectly.

Cost of building a house

  • Average cost to build a house: from £1,500 per square metre (approx. £140 per square foot)

You can expect to pay this average price as a minimum. Exact designs, decisions and finishing touches make all the difference, so the average price can be more like £2,500 per square metre for higher-spec, complicated properties.

House building construction companies’ costs are dependent on various aspects, including:

  • Location: Central London is the most expensive place in the UK to build a house. In fact, it’s the second-highest in the whole world. So where you build a house has a huge impact on cost 
  • Labour: nearly 50 per cent of your budget will be spent on people power 
  • Materials: the best, top of the range, luxury, advanced options push the total up, also influence the timeline
  • Timeframe: the speed required impacts the overall amount to pay  
  • Finishes: every little detail adds up, from plug sockets, lighting and switches to tiles, flooring, windows, doors and wall coverings

House construction process

Steps include:

  1. Architect’s designs: creates drawings and specifications; chooses materials; essential considerations include structure/insulation
  2. Planning permissions/building regulations required
  3. Construction itself: this needs to be project managed with precision and accuracy, as many different skilled workers form the entire house builder team and are needed at various points throughout, such as:
  • Bricklayers 
  • Utilities professionals 
  • Engineers
  • Scaffolders
  • Roofers
  • Plasterers
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Carpenters
  • Windows/doors installers
  • Hard landscapers 
  • Gardeners
  • Decorators

As you can see, it is a great undertaking involving many intricacies and complexities. That’s why you want an experienced firm to take control and guide you through it.

our accreditations

We were very impressed with Fittra from our first meeting, where they spent time to fully understand what it was we wanted, they were friendly and professional and we immediately felt at ease and trusted them with the job. Throughout the process we had weekly meetings, phone calls and were on a WhatsApp group where any queries or requirements were easily dealt with. Their team of workers were amazing, so professional, tidy and helpful and their work is an exceptionally high standard. Their quote was so detailed we knew exactly what was included and what wasn’t and they remained in budget and on schedule. If we had an idea or something extra we wanted to build or include, it was always no problem and they were happy to help with anything we wanted. We are delighted with the finished product, it looks beautiful and we would definitely use them again. We have already recommended them to friends and family. Thank you very much Vadym and Igor and to all your team!
