    A hollow core door is an interior door without solid materials in its frame. These doors are lightweight and used in many types of buildings. Hollow core doors don't buffer sound well, but are an affordable alternative to solid core wood doors.

    Scrap woods and artificial wood finishes are typically used for hollow core doors. The lower cost materials help keep the price of these lightweight interior doors inexpensive. The hollow core door is considered quite environmentally friendly because manufacturers can use up wood products that would otherwise be wasted. Before the manufacturing of hollow core doors, scrap woods were routinely discarded as waste.

    For the professional fee how much should be given to the consultants: acoustic, civil, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and sanitary and etc?

    And, what is the margin of profit of the contractor base on the basic estimate?
