We started the DA application back in June 2018 but the actual work for the tender & documentation started in Sep/Oct 2017.
Actual DA took 370+ days from lodging to approval plus another 2 months to get an amendment.
Reg paying we only paid BWH the initial deposit & all other charges directly to council.
We are now at Construction Certificate issuing stage by BWH's private Certifier, once the CC is issued BWH wants to get the contract ready.
Demolition CDC was managed by our self as BWH advised its easier for us to manage the process as its cheaper.

[quote="ravinderkk":cv9bni02]Thanks Norfolk for your feedback, I have written a full update as to where we at & what exactly we need (At home with a cup of tea) gave more thought to it than a quick blurb at work.[/quote:cv9bni02]
Carefully consider the liquidated damages clause in the contract, as this will be key to your build's time / quality / cost balance. Compare your costs of the builder's delays like your rent and interest with what Beechwood will pay you in liquidated damages if they are late per week (not 'working day'). If its really low ask Beechwood why, are they truly committed to deliver quality on time? Your financial circumstances may mean you are forced to accept poor quality. Its good you have a friend's recommendation for demolition - consider my recent posts regarding the hidden asbestos trick.
