Each level typically costs between R 350.00 and R 1 000.00 per square meter from start to finish. As an example, lets suppose that your house is going to be 250m2. Working with this principle, if your house is, say for say, 250m2, then a Level 1 budget should around the R 87 500 mark. However, if you choose to do only key areas of the house, you will be adjusting the budget accordingly.
In all building projects each trade accounts for an individual phase of the project pertaining to them. i.e. the architect engineer are responsible for the Design phase, the Builder is responsible for Build phase, and the Interior Designer is responsible for the Finish/ Furnish stage.
However, the unique part in what we do is we are responsible for the design, installation and finishing phase of the project.
A Comprehensive Turnkey Solution
We design according to your lifestyle; we install the complete infrastructure, including the wiring and we program the finished product.
The most common mistake that people make is only looking at the various finish products prices such as televisions and speakers’ prices to determine their total budget. However, we recommend our customers spend more time giving careful thought to the design and engineering phase, to determine the right backbone for your system. The finish products like speakers and TV’s are easily changed or upgraded, but making the wrong choice as far as the backbone or base elements could be fatal and most cases the system then can’t be fixed.
An example of this is that you can always purchase a larger TV, with latest Smart technology, but if the existing wiring and switching can’t support the upgrade, then it will be a costly mistake to fix. That is why proper long term planning is the most important aspect of the project. Also, one rule of thumb to use; if your automation budget is less than your flooring per square meter, then chances are you do not have a well-designed system.
