Building A New House
Jul 29, 2018 11:34 am
We are a knock down rebuild in Dundas Valley in NSW. We did a tender with a building company two years ago on our home with Builder A, we got soil test and survey, on the documents our slab class was H2 on the plan and M class on the site costs in contract.
Just recently engaged another builder to do a soil test and the soil class has come back 'P class'. The soil tester was the same one as two years ago as his number came up in my phone.
Does this seem odd ? I can't see the exact price difference in the tenders but it must be quite a bit more ?
Anyone else had this ?

We got classed at a p just because it dash a kdr. Our actual soil test was something else (can't remember)

Welcome to the forum, beware of Price Gouging, & check with fair trading
If you have paid for the original soil report just use that with another builder
BTW, you may not see a price difference at the tender stage unless you have all the engineering changes priced up
That usually follows at contract signing as a variation
