The first unit is four stories high and measuring 28 feet by 100 feet and each floor was about 9 feet high.
The total number of nests was 15 after almost 2.5 years into operation.
The cost to build this BH was almost RM 700,000.
The second unit is a mini BH which measured about 20 feet wide by 40 feet long and 8 feet ceiling height.
The total number of nests inside is 60 after 3 years into operation.
The cost to erect was only RM70,000.
The cost per nest for the first BH is 700,000/15= 46,666.67.
The cost per nest for the 2nd BH is 70,000/60 = 1,166.67.
Look at how much different in cost.
Both BHs has their own problems and the cost to rectify is proportionate to the size.
The larger the size the more expensive it will cost.
To reduce the heat for the first BH runs into 10,000s and I am sure the owner will jump out of his office window if I should tell him.
The cost to insulate the whole walls will run like RM 6 a square foot.
This include the raw materials and labor.
The total surface areas of the walls is about 100'X10'X4 X2 = 8000 plus 28'X10'X4X2 =2240 or grand total of 10,240.
The cost to do all will be RM6 X 10,240 = RM61,000.
Almost the cost of a mini BH.
I am a bit nervous to tell him but I might as well blurt it out so that he will be aware on his costly mistakes.
From this article please try to be more careful when you decide to start a BH.
