Morning all

Need some advice on pricing a 6 bedroom house with a swimming pool.

Im use to pricing your average 3 bedroom new build but this is another step for me.

The house is 37m x 24m

Ground floor: Play room, family room, dining room, gallery/entrance, kitchen, pantry, study, sitting room, gym, utility room, plant room, craft room, gardeners wc, swimming pool

1st floor: 6 bedrooms, all en suits, 3 have large dressing rooms, ac room, laundry room, gallery/landing

Most downlights everywhere, all data and tv in rooms, 63a supply to swimming pool for now, no info on heating yet

Could you not get the price you charge for doing the same to a 3 bedroom, divide it by the number of rooms, then times it by the number of rooms in the big house.
See what figure you get then, as a ball-park figure

100A supply I assume?

63A supply for the swimming pool? How much load will be connected and for what duration?
 
Houses this size can spiral quickly ...

I have worked on 6-7 bed houses that start off at around £100k then quickly spiral up and up and end up at £200k..
I have worked on houses with a £350k electrical budget.

Are you supplying everything??

What accessories are being used?? Very Unlikely White plastic will be spec, so you could end up with Wandsworth accessories at £30 a double socket

Is there a Lightning design ??

I think the above approach will likely underestimate somewhat.

Last large house I worked on, similar size/rooms, there was a lot more installed that you'd expect in a typical 3 or 4 bed.

Some examples:
- Marker lights in ensuites activated on entry, so you don't need to put on main lights in the middle of the night.
- Marker lights on staircases.
- Wardrobe lights.
- Data & speaker cables from everywhere back to a central cupboard.
- Some rooms had 7 speaker points, others maybe only 4 (we used 2km of nice speaker cable).
- Separate satellite & freeview coax distribution
- Kitchen big hob, 2 regular ovens, steam oven, warming drawers, built-in microwave, etc.
- Some 3 or even 4 way light switching (e.g. landing lights).
- Beside lights plus 3-way switching for main bedroom lights.

And the accessories will all be some decorative finish, perhaps grid switch modules.

If your talking in those terms, I'm sure there would be a full spec involved.
Is there, by any chance? It doesn't seem so.

Ask for a full spec of what they want. If they can't then say you are happy to design it for them, consulting as you go along.........on day work :)

Leesparkykent is familiar with this type of top end new build and pricing. There is usually a lot to get involved with.
