Using Chiltern Self Build to project manage the building of your home has a number of advantages over traditional tendering price work  ‘going it alone’. Notably two key advantages are: Our experience will typically save you between 15% and 25% on the cost of your self build. As an example we can advise the best way to save the VAT on certain elements of your build and a full claim on others. We manage and co-ordinate all parties involved, to deliver to your timescale and your budget.  

Saving you money – We will demonstrate how we can significantly save on your original budget estimation or quotations given; Case studies demonstrate clients’ initial costs for the self build and how we have significantly reduced this overall cost. We do this quite simply by having the right contacts combined with superior buying power and 30 years of experience.
Co-ordination of all parties – self build involves a significant number of people from a variety of disciplines.  They may include architects, quantity surveyors, trade contractors, foremen, council officials, planning consultants and specialist consultants as required.  We effectively co-ordinate and manage this "Project Team" for a successful build.
We work for you – you are our client, you are paying  for our independent services. We are not tied to any suppliers or sub contractors.  To the contrary, Main Contractor's route has site foreman, project managers, site agents & trades all work for the building company;  they are not independent.  By working with us you are in control. Expertise: Chiltern Self Build brings with it a wealth of expertise and experience to significantly shortcut your learning curve; there are very few problems that we have not faced or solved.
Dedicated Staff - We take the hassle out of project managing your own home build, we place dedicated  working foremen on your site to ensure your dream is taken from a concept through to reality.
