Do I need an architect / engineer?
This is one of the most common questions asked. "Should we hire an architect for our project?” For small small projects, such as changing a window opening or removing a non-load bearing wall, the answer is no. For larger projects such as whole-house renovations, extensions or new kitchens, you should consider working with a design professional. Any structural works are taking place should always involve consultation with a structural engineer to ensure that this is done correctly.

How offten is payment made?
This would be agreed in advance, along with any retention amount to be held, of any works commencing and with all parties.
How do I make changes during construction stage?
This often happens and can be dealt with very simply. We check and see of there is an additional cost that will have to be incurred (an extra) or indeed a saving to be made. Also we determine if the proposed change will effect the projects time frame. This information will be then emailed, faxed or posted to you for you to approve. Only on your written approval will this changes to the original scope of works take place.
How does PC (Provisional costing work)?
On all of our quotes you will see items with associated costs marked as PC. This simply means we have included a market value cost for that item, at which point when it comes time to installing it on site the actually item may be different in price. For example a typical cost we put in our quote for internal doors is €105. If you chose to purchase from a sale, where the door cost €55 then a saving of €50 per door is made, while if you wanted a door costing €155 then an addition of €50 per door would be incurred.
How do you estimate time frames and what happens if they over run?
Given the nature of todays markets time is money, so time frames are a very important role in all jobs. The time frame on any project to be done based on the length of time it takes a professional to finish your project. If due to seriously adverse weather conditions or any variation / extra's to the original estimation and scope of works that may cause Mulcon Construction to over run you will be notified on a weekly basis. We cannot be held responsible for overruns due to adverse weather conditions or any variation / extra's. Any penalties will be discussed and agreed in advance or project commencement.
