Could somebody give the square metre rate for building new houses on a labour only rate in Auckland not including foundations, gib fixing, insulation or the fixing of roof iron. the building would be bevel back weather boards but that could be a different rate

Good luck getting a meaningful answer as build rates aren't generally sliced that way.

 

You could potentially build it up from first principles using something like rawlinsons (if you have an quantity surveyor/architect/engineer friend they may have a copy):

 

https://www.rawlhouse.com/construction-cost-guide.php

 

But given the lack of available builders in general I suspect rawlinsons may not represent current market pricing either....

 

Best way might be having yarn with a builder - but I am not sure they would be that keen on a piecemeal build like you have described given the full service builds (read full margin) work they could be doing instead.

PeterQ:

My brother is a builder, base rate is between $40 and $55 an hour depending on the task and client.  

 

The apprentice is charged out at roughly $30 an hour.

 

 

 

It would be too difficult to give a square metre rate on the information given as it is dependent on a huge range of factors i.e number of stories, complexity of build, materials, site access, fall protection required.

 

It sounds like you want someone to assemble the framing and put the external cladding on? with you supplying all the materials?  or am I reading that wrong

framing, cladding and finishing, all the rest is other subbies

do you have a PM or someone taking on that kind of role. because youll save money with labour only, but if theres any questions on the drawings, or somethings gone wrong with a detail, youll have to deal with that yourself. if you can, all good. but when a builder quotes up on a job theyll usually price all that management in

Hourly rates are in the region of $50 per hour for the buiders we use in Wellington. Expect a bit more in Auckland.

 

If you want more specific data, short of getting a quote, look into Rawlinsons building costs.
