Hi guys, I am about to send out my DA plans for builder quotes and am keen on peoples thoughts on the below shortlist of builders. The project is a compact single-story dwelling in Parkwood. End product will be retained to rent with a target rent ~$400/wk; or sale price around $450k. I'm aiming to achieve 7-8 Star NatHERS energy efficiency and implement a number of other sustainable features, so I am definitely favoring builders with demonstrated experience delivering sustainable homes. Shortlist so far: Smaller builders/sustainable builders Sadhana Constructions Right Homes MyGen/Highbury Homes Sovereign Jubilee Home Builders Volume builders: New Choice Homes Ross North Homes Ventura ID Summit Projects Dale Alcock Developments So in summary: i'm looking for a builder that will deliver 'better than average' investor product at a good price with bonus points and be competent in delivering sustainability features (do I ask too much ?). Oh and I forgot to mention I'm pretty needy so good communication is key! I will probably tender to four builders in total; two or three of the smaller/sustainable guys and one or two of the volume builders. Keen to hear people's thoughts/experiences with the above builders (or any other obvious ones).
