We understand that estimating the cost of foundations is very important to plan the budget for your construction project. However, you will find it extremely tricky to do it yourself, as it involves numerous factors. The good news is we have designed a cost calculator that will help you estimate the overall cost you will bear for your project’s foundations. Answer a few questions, and we will provide you with a number.

However, it is important to highlight that our foundation cost calculator uses a limited number of inputs. Although it provides close to the real cost of foundations, the real cost may differ from it. Try it now to get a cost estimate for your foundations.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Foundations

  • The Scale of the Project

The first thing that influences the cost of installing a foundation is the scale of the project. The bigger the scale, the more will be the cost. Keeping this in mind, the foundation cost will ascend respectively for domestic, commercial and industrial projects.

  • Type of Foundation

This is the most important factor when it comes to the cost estimate. Different foundation types require different equipment, techniques and labour strength. For example, a pile foundation will cost much more than a strip foundation.

  • Type of the Project

The foundation cost also depends on the project type. This includes underpinning, house extensions and new builds. For example, constructing foundations for a home extension will cost significantly less than for a new build.

  • Size of the Project

The cost of new foundations is directly proportional to the size of the project. If you are planning construction on a bigger area, such as for an industrial project, it will cost you much more as compared to domestic projects.

  • Number of Floors

The number of floors mainly influences the depth of the foundation. The more you raise your superstructure, the deeper you have to go for its foundations. This factor is mainly applicable to constructing commercial and industrial buildings.

  • Access to the Location

Accessibility defines the technique of installing the foundations. Low-access areas, such as basements, narrow down your options significantly and require a more specialised approach, which can increase the cost.

  • Soil Conditions

Soil conditions are a major factor in estimating the cost of foundations. Unstable soil conditions may require pre-treatment to make it suitable for your foundations. This will make you bear more costs.

  • Site Condition

This factor is generally overlooked while estimating the cost. Keep in mind that site conditions will affect the overall cost up to some fraction. If your site requires levelling and clearing the vegetation, you will have to pay more money.

  • Type of Required Services

Finally, you have to consider the type of services you need. If you need contractors to design and build your foundations, you will have to pay more money for that.
