Build It - - READERS’ HOMES -

e Bath Street Col­lec­tive Cus­tom Build project was com­pleted as a block of flats, so many of the con­struc­tion costs were shared.

is meant that the ma­jor­ity of scheme was paid for on a pro rata ba­sis, ac­cord­ing to the floor area of each apart­ment. e Kins­leys there­fore paid 28.64% of the main con­tract sum (£252,948).

Some of the works were per­sonal to a sin­gle flat, so the costs for these were re­moved from the pro rata ar­range­ment and paid by the owner in ques­tion. For in­stance, pro­vi­sional sums were al­lo­cated to kitchens and bath­rooms, but the in­tent was that peo­ple would spec­ify their own and have it in­stalled by the main con­trac­tor. John and Jenny spent an ad­di­tional £15,000 on these el­e­ments, tak­ing their to­tal build costs to £267,948 (£2,436 per m2).
