Cost Of Basement In New Construction
The more than you can plan for on paper, the better prepared you are to deal with any surprises that may come up. If you create a budget in a spreadsheet or worksheet, it can also help you keep track of your expenses as you go. The categories you need to add to calculate the cost of building a basement include:
New basement technologies, such as Polarwall, have quickened the build time and reduced the cost of basement construction. One of the major costs of basement construction is the removal from site of the soil, and though this can sometimes be "lost" on larger sites, for compact sites it can be expensive.
Re: Basement Excavations For New Home Construction One of our excavation crews use two big ass track driven skid steers and a mini excavator. They will have the cleanest, neatest hole you have ever seen.
Digging a basement for new house construction can cost $500-$10,000 or more, depending on location and what is included. For example, an owner-builder  reportedly spent $790 to dig the basement hole (with pouring concrete footings, foundations and a basement floor adding another $8,800 ).
$15-20k for a relatively straightforward job. Keep in mind that drainage has to be tied into your home's drainage system. This means breaking the basement slab to connect to your sewer line. If you have a finished basement add fixing the damage to the overall cost.
By using construction estimating software you can break out the foundation and excavating costs as separate line items to determine what the cost per square foot for just the basement is. The cost for just the basement therefore, will be the cost of the labor, materials, and excavation for the foundation as shown on the breakdown of total cost
