Can anyone please explain how do you track your weeks in construction?
In 28 February 2018, we received the email saying-
".......your file has been issued to Production Estimating for orders to be processed....
Orders will start to be processed for your home;
Within the first 10 working days, you will see the Site Fence, Toilet & other requirements delivered;
excavation works commencing 10-15 working days after that (weather permitting);
Within the 15 days and once all the orders have been processed, your file will be allocated to a Site Supervisor (SS) and released into Construction."
In 14 March 2018, we received the email saying-
"............your project has reached the “Construction” stage and I will be your office contact until the completion of your new home....."
In 16 March 2018, our SS called and introduced himself and his plan for weekly update every Friday.
In 19 March 2018 Monday, our slab was done. Payment was claimed on 20 March '18 Tuesday.
Now, when actually is the official start of week 1 of our 30-week-build? If it's 14 March 2018, then the 30 week should finish around 10-11 October 2018. Considering public holidays, may be 3-4 days more.
But I reccently asked our SS to see when is the 30 week end date officially. And he said "roughly 11 November 2018, plus rain interruption & holidays to be counted"!
The calculation does not match. May be I should ask our CSR to know the exact date. I know it can not be that exact for handover but all I need to have a track of our weeks like others. I would like to have a clear concept on this.
However, our admin and selection stages took too long and we almost were going to loose the bank loan/house due to sudden job change and the delay on Wisdom side. But I am really grateful to Wisdom Homes for accelerating DEP, EP by considering our situations and helped us getting the loan approved finally. We were in immense stress in those days and was chasing Wisdom like hell. The delay mainly caused by Timpelle Kitchen. I dont know why Timpelle was so slow! I found Wisdom Electrical dept very quick and efficient. Megan was wonderful.
Anyway, since construction started, the progress is really good. We are really happy the way it's going on timely. Our brick work took 3-4 weeks ( ~01-31 May 2018).
Last but the most important thing for me:
After knowing lot's of friends' experiences, I am now confident enough to say that Wisdom Homes promises and delivers much better quality than many other builders. And that quality lasts much longer than the bitter memory of admin delay.
I am looking forward to the handover of a good quality house and to live without many issues. Hope our journey with Wisdom Homes will have a happy ending .
The specific build period for each Home can vary depending upon many factors, including greenfield site or KDR, single or double storey, DA or CDC approval, facade type etc. From 1st January 2018, we have improved the level of detail that we provide at Contract Signing about construction timeframes to provide better transparency. However, for all sites, the start of the Build Period is recognised as being from commencement of excavation. I will ask your SS and Area Contruction Manager to review your build timeframes to ensure that we are providing you with accurate information.
