How much does a building cost

It is difficult to give an accurate answer without having all the information required to completely estimate the building. There are many factors that can change the price of a building including location from metropolitan areas, the slope of the land, Wind ratings, Bushfire ratings, Foundation conditions, level of specifications, size and height of building and even underground pipes or trees local to the building.
