ARCPANEL versus Conventional Roof Cost Comparison Case Study

A recent case study has demonstrated that a ARCPANEL Roof can save over 12% of construction costs compared to a conventional timber framed single skin roof.

A new build located in Noosa, Queensland utilised conventional construction methods using timber beams and rafters for the structure; single Colorbond steel roof fitted with a layer of foil insulation and R3 insulation batts; and a single layer of plasterboard for the ceiling lining.

Bills of quantities were provided for the as built conventional construction of 173m2 roof area and a comparison has been undertaken for the costs to design the roof using the ARCPANEL Custom Roof system. The results show an overall saving of 12.3% in construction costs demonstrating a ARCPANEL roof can supply a superior result for a lower cost.
