We had our tender appointment with Clarendon yesterday. All I can say is they were 100% professional in their dealings with us.
The tender was clearly explained to us, inlcuding the full building process.
All the site costs, inclusions and additions we had made were clearly documented and priced.
Site costs came in under budget.. even after taking into account we will require the standard 'M' class slab being upgraded to a 'H' class. In fact site costs came in at 10K less then what we were expecting.
We then had the opportunity to add any further inclusions that we wanted to the tender. And we had a LOT. But no question was too hard to answer. They didn't have all the prices on hand for all the inclusions we wanted but everything was documented and they said they will get back to us next week with a final price.
They spent over 3.5 hours going through everything with us yesterday.
I must say we are VERY impressed with our dealings with Clarendon so far.
