Cost per  square metre

Cost per square metre

One of the misconceptions surrounding sprinklers is that they add significant costs. This needs to be challenged in terms of the overall impact that they can have on build costs, design freedoms and fire resilience over the life of a building.

On average, for an industrial building, the cost has been estimated to be between £33 per square metre and £35 per square metre*. This is balanced against the typical industrial/commercial building construction cost, which depends on specification, that is between £750 and £1,500 per square metre. The key here to minimise costs, sprinklers should be designed into building plans.
