To help you understand how the area of your EASYMADE project is measured and costed at Phase 2, please refer to the example and illustrations below:
Our fee for Phase 2 is based on the proposed Gross Internal Area (GIA) in meters squared (written as 'sqm' or 'm2') of your project. As in the example below, if you're looking to get your kitchen extended as well as have it refurbished, the GIA of your project will include both the floor area of the kitchen being refurbished as well as the floor area of the proposed extension.
In this example the total area of work and our fees would be calculated as followed:
Kitchen refurbishment area: 3 x 5.5 = 16.5 sqm
Kitchen extension area: 2 x 5.5 = 11 sqm
Total GIA of works: 27.5 sqm
We round up or down to the nearest 5. In this instance we would round the project up to 30 sqm.
A 30 sqm project would be considered an EASYMADE SMALL project (see illustrations below) and the fees due would be £2,304.18. If this project were to require planning permission there would be an additional lump sum fee of £950 added.

Invoicing & Payment:
Phase 1: Phase 1 is invoiced at its completion. However, if we have been commissioned to begin work on your project and you later decide to terminate it before Phase 1 is completed, a £320 termination fee will apply.
Phase 2: For projects in Phase 2 we invoice for the incurred amount every 28 days. The incurred amount will be a percentage of the overall fee for this phase.
Phase 3: During Phase 3 we invoice for the incurred amount every 28 days.
Please note invoices should be settled within 14-days of the invoice date to avoid late penalty fees.
