Hi Brokenstick, How did you go with Darbecca? Are there certain stages you would recommend getting inspected over others? Be good to know how many in total. Also if Darbecca did find an issue, did UE fix it satisfactorily? Also did UE tell you that for every inspection that your build would be delay...

I've read over the contract myself and asked for clarification on everything i wasn't 100% certain on and their responses have mo...

I've just come across this thread and [color=#353535]I am about to build and have encountered the same thing whereby the builder has advised that they appoint Group 4 Building Surveyors on our behalf to ensure they are complying throughout construction and this cost is built into the house price.

A charged system is in basic terms uPVC solvent welding your 100mm PVC pipe ( to pressure seal it) and making sure they get the invert and discharge RL's correct. So $8k is a massive gouge If that is all they are doing, then a huge YES , it would be a massive rort for just solvent welding some pvc ...

Hi, I am building a house with a volume builder (They build approx. 100 new homes a year) who I won't name at this stage. They have been very good to deal with to this stage (5-6 months) but was very surprised with our first tender meeting following on from receiving our build quote a fortnight ear...

I think it makes sense to get the engineers report completed so that we have a more accurate read on the sealed system costs. If your engineer uses 3D Bim Engineering,then you should be able to extract Material Quantities, ie , m,m2,m3,etc Apply realistic labour Rates$ , allow for a reasonable buil...

Provide 2,000 litre slimline oval rainwater tank to meet requirements of land contract/town planning - $3,064 Is $3,064 just for the tank? If so, even with the builder's 20% margin it is ridiculously expensive. Ask about having two 1,000 L round poly tanks or even three 700 L or 800 L round poly ta...

It's fair to say some red flags were coming up for me so I promptly finished up the meeting and am now looking at all options. If anyone has some feedback on the above additional costs and particularly the timing of them (After the initial quote stage and after I had requested in writing to not hav...
