I've also seen it on a roof a few weeks ago on another part of the developement. I thought sarking was made c...

If you don’t specify everything in the contract, and then fail to read the contract and what’s included, then no doubt dissatisfaction will follow. Glossy brochure or not, the builder has zero obligation to provide the security system unless it was specified in the contract. again you are caught po...

Hi, I am not sure who to turn to so I thought I try my luck here. Basically long story short, my partner is building her first home with Simonds Homes as a express package. The alarm system was advertised on the brochure and we assumed it would have been included in the contract (I guess our fault ...
There is actually legislation around this. If its in the brochure they need to include it. Metricon got a fined a few t...

Next time you go out to a nice restaurant you should refuse to order until they give you a breakdown of costs to arrive at the value of the meal you are about to order so you can ascertain that you aren’t getting ripped off. with due respect, it sounds like you might be best of staying in your lane...

You are on the wrong forum, if you want to debate multi million commercial construction find another forum or start your own. This is homeone forum for people building their own homes. Are you seriously suggesting ordinary people building their home should engage QS to analyse price structure of bu...
I officially give in, you have beaten me. Yes Unicorns are real. Merry christmas

Builder's quotation is builder's privileged information and you have no business knowing the details. You can ensure competitiveness by shopping around and not seeking quote details. Spend more time making sure you are comparing apples with apples. Have you ever done any commercial work? Why is it ...

Yes Sejae, glad to hear it can still be available, albeit rare as there are various reason why one would need a detailed breakdown of major cost items in a build I know I dont need to tell you this, but you are the client and you are well within your rights to ask for anything you damn well please....

it seems most builders that I approached in Brisbane, give one lump sum for almost 90% of the total construction cost without any breakdown of individual cost item - How can I get detailed breakdown of individual cost to ensure the cost is competitive and not overpriced as most builders claim this ...

Hi all. Noticed these large holes in floor joists for air con ducting. Cut out is almost the complete height of the joist so there's not much left holding up the floor. Is this normal? I'm guessing/hoping they'll attach some steel reinforcing around the cut outs at some stage? Thanks. https://forum...
In the centre of the I joist they are engineered and perfectly fine. They cant be close to the ends. I have the codes a...
