You might be thinking of relocating premises and the new building will either need a new suspended ceiling system UK or the old suspended ceiling is looking very tired with water stained, missing or broken tiles. Maybe you already have a suspended ceiling and you would like to replace it with a fire rated ceiling, an acoustically superior ceiling or would like to improve the insulation properties to save on heating bills. Whatever the scenario you’ve probably come here looking for a provisional cost to enable you to see if your project is financially viable. There are hundreds of different types of ceiling tiles available on the market today and so this article can only give you an approximate idea of cost. It’s price also varies depending on lots of other factors but the main ones are a location in the country and the size and type of the ceiling. As I have stated there are lots of other factors so for this article we will assume the floor to existing ceiling/soffit height is anywhere up to 4000mm high, that it’s on the ground floor of the building with easy access and parking. Here I would like to mention some information that would help you to know the cost.
1:) Budget Suspended Ceiling Cost:
Ceiling with the low cost complete with ceiling tiles in an area of 30m2 to 50m2 will cost approximately £20 to £30 per square meter reducing to about £12 to £18 per square meter in larger areas.
Mid Range Ceiling Cost
The mid-range ceiling complete with ceiling tiles in an area of 30m2 to 50m2 will cost approximately £25 to £35 per square meter reducing to about £15 to £22 per square meter in larger areas.
2:) High-Performance Ceiling Cost:
The high-performance ceiling complete with ceiling tiles in an area of 30m2 to 50m2 will cost approximately £35 to £45 per square meter reducing to about £25 to £35 per square meter in larger areas.
MF Plasterboard Ceiling Cost
For plasterboard ceilings in an area of 30m2 to 50m2 will cost approximately £30 to £40 per square meter reducing to about £25 to £30 per square meter in larger areas. Unlike the rest ceilings above this would also need to be plastered and painted after it is completed.
3:) Insulation Cost:
If you were thinking to add insulation quilt to be fitted above the ceiling, depending on the thickness you would be looking at somewhere between £5 to £8 per square meter adding on to these rates.
4:) Small Projects:
In these projects that are less than 30m2, I would assume it is going to cost £300 to £400 minimum for a low-cost ceiling.
These prices must give you some idea of how much a ceiling is going to cost you for a local firm to supply and fit a suspended ceiling and I would like to add an additional 10% to 20% for London areas.
