Construction Industry/cost comparision
please suggest me cost comparision for wooden luxzarious villas 5000 sqft and pre engineering building for 5000 sqft villas
Here are some thoughts for your kind consideration:
Point no. 1
Wood is not a eco-friendly material. People might raise concerns of the use of ‘wood’ in a 5000 sqft project. Also, the use of ‘manufactured’ wood is yet to catch up in India, unlike in European Countries.
Point no. 2
Large scale availability of ‘quality’ seasoned / manufactured wood in India. Vendors might try to push ‘un-seasoned’ wood, which would definitely become point a concern in a very short period of time.
Point no. 3
Availability of ‘good’ quality carpenters.
Point no. 4:
Fire may be another point of concern. The required technology to treat wood to control 'fire spread’ is still very costly in India.
Point no. 5:
Maintenance (repainting / varnishing / polishing every 5 - 7 years)costs are definitely higher in the case of wood.
Under the circumstances, we believe that ‘pre-engineered’ buildings would be definitely be more cost effective in the long run than ‘wood’ in India.
