Cost Of Stud Wall

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Anyone any idea about approx cost of 85m of stud wall ( 2.4m high) plastered and painted with half a dozen doors?

Very rough and ready, price the materials and multiply by three. Once for materials, once for labour and once for overheads and profit. Used to be a pretty good guideline although four might be more realistic than three these days with all the extra costs added by officialdom. On the other hand if your paying someone cash....

£10k - £15k for a ballpark figure.

But it depends...

Do you want insulation in the walls? Power sockets? Light switches?

What sort of floor and ceiling is there?

Do you want cheap nasty doors with no locks or fire and security rated doors?

Etc.

Sockets and light swithches we would fit ourselves decent doors not crap 1 hour fire rated.

Doesnt need to go to the ceiling just a nominal height say 2.4m as it is a sloping roof/ceiling.

Wondering if modular partitioning might be better / easier.

no insulation needed

Thanks for the reply

You're going to be much better off doing the first fix on the electrics before it's boarded. If you try and do it yourself whilst someone is putting the studding up they'll not be pleased unless they know in advance.

It's probably around £3k just for the timber and plasterboard.

I would hire a carpenter on a day rate, buy the materials for him and get him to do the work. Once built, get a plasterer in on a daily rate and buy the materials too. It will be the cheapest way to build the wall. If any electrics are needed, employ an electrician to put wiring in before the wall is boarded. Buy the wire that is needed yourself, if you want to save a bit.

I'll do it for nine and a half grand.

Heh Patfig, aren't you from Newton Aycliffe? There used to be a company, Thrislington Partitions. Anyway they don't exist anymore, so don't bother asking them! It's all five-a-side courts now. It looks like a matchstick model of Hackney Marshes.

No idea, but stud partitions seem to be one of the very few things that actuallyseem to be cheaper than you fear they might be. Anything else, painting, electrics, plumbing, multiply your worst fears by 10.
