Block and Beam vs Suspended Beam Flooring and What Costs Involved

Postby brekerr » Fri Mar 24, 2017 7:32 pm


Not sure if this is the place to ask. I am trying work out the difference in price between a suspended floor and block and beam. It's for an area just over 30m square. The reason being: we are having an extension built and the builders persuaded us to go with a suspended floor rather than block and beam, for reasons of speed. Unfortunately it doesn't seemed to have saved any time; and while we were discussing the change in plan, it was confirmed that it would be cheaper. We have discovered that we need a more expensive option for our windows and are hoping we can used the money saved to pay for this. The builder has been slow and vague in getting back so I am trying to find out myself.

Also into the mix the builder said that the original block and beam would have been too long for standard block and beam and half size blocks would have been needed.

Thanks for any advice in advance.
