Roughly the cost for building a concrete of steel house is between 800 to 1500 €/m² depending on the complexity and interior luxury features of the house. For an extensive renovation, the cost can be as low as 100 €/m² to as high as 1000 €/m²  depending on the requirement of the owner.

EARTHWORKS

cost excavation prices times eskafes paphos

Earthworks include excavation and back-filling for foundation construction. Towards the completion of a building there will also be some earthworks for landscaping purposes.

Buildings with basement will require an excavation to about 3-4 m deep from the street level. After excavation you may proceed with pouring a thin layer of blinding concrete and then proceed with the construction of the foundation.

Buildings without a basement will typically require excavation for removing the soft surface soil. The excavation can be 0.2 m - 2 m deep, depending of the height of the building and the soil conditions. After excavation the soil is compacted with a vibratory roller compactor. Then, we proceed with back-fill using stronger soil (crusher-run) which is applied in thin layers (approx 10-20 cm) and compacted using a vibratory roller compactor. At the same time is important to keep the soil at the predefined water contend to achieve the maximum compaction.
