Can you tell me the approximate building cost per square foot to build a new house in Calgary? Are there prices for economy, midrange and high end houses available.

I would like to build a mid to high end house of Approximately 5 to 6 thousand square feet. The lot is already bought and paid for, so I am wanting a construction cost.

Hi Marty

In my experience since moving to Calgary I have experienced square footage prices of between $100 to $200 approximately.

The price is heavily influenced by fixtures and fittings (I.E Light Fixture,Tile, Faucets, Sinks Granite Counters, Structured Wiring, Kitchen Design, Custom Closets Etc).

There are also things like property location, access, whether you are going to employ a project manager or main contractor or control the sub-trades yourself and design will have influencing factors in the initial build price.

I hope that has given you a brief insight, if I can be of more assistance then please do not hesitate to contact me. I can also offer no obligation estimates for all the carpentry work that you may require.

Kind regards
