Additional Note About Our Fee:

At SBI Estimation we do not provide set fees for estimating as we are aware that the level of detail with any project can vary greatly.
Instead, we are happy to provide a no-obligation quote for any project from drawings and specifications. We ask that you send us your drawings via email and we will always provide a quotation to our fees on receipt within 3 working hours.
All projects are priced accurately by our quantity surveyors from the drawings and specifications you provide. We also focus our attention on providing an excellent client service.
We take the time to understand your business, whether it is face-to-face or over the phone.
We understand no building project is ever the same and therefore we do not believe in a “one template fits all” policy.

Feel free to send us any plans you have for a price quote at [email protected] or

Within a few hours, we will get back to you with our proposal.
