78587Re: Current Construction Cost
- Sep 1, 2008The bottom line is that building costs per square foot or meter are
determined by the building contract and construction specifications
agreed to between the owner and the contractor. Additionally,
construction costs vary depending on the location of the building site.
For instance, in Guanacaste materials and labor are more expensive than
in the central valley. If you are planning to build and would like to
begin to narrow down the options of the materials selection process, you
can review Construction Specifications on the Documents page at
www.CostaRicaHomeBuilder.com <http://www.costaricahomebuilder.com/> .
This document will help you determine the realistic costs of
construction here in Costa Rica.
Square footage or meter measurements in Costa Rica are usually taken
from gutter to gutter, so most of the measurements advertised for
housing are the total dimensions under roof, including the roof
overhangs. In other countries, people are accustomed to the measurements
of enclosed interior living areas that can be air-conditioned. At the
current costs of construction per square foot or meter, you need to make
sure you are receiving all that you are paying for. It's a wise decision
to hire a qualified construction inspector to look out for your best
interests when building or purchasing existing housing here in CR. You
