    Hi All,

    Has anyone in Perth recently completed a development and if so, would you mind sharing details of the construction timeframe you experienced with your builder?

    Thanks in advance!

    What sort of size?

    Builders vary wildly too. @sanj can help you with that one....

    Im finding up to 3x, anything from 7 months to 12m, up to 8x about 12-15m, above that I've seen 50x take 26m so comm scaling and timeframes are clearly different to resi (and you'd hope so too).

    I imagine ExpressTwoStorey would do pretty well in this space for single builds.

    I spoke to a builder last week who was saying triplex's (SS) should be going up in about 8 months. I asked him if he would do a commercial contract (liquidated damages etc.) and they weren't too keen on getting locked in on a date. Builders word = ???. I was told to hit up a AS4000.

    Good luck.

    So many external factors impacting on a builder's time frame. Quicker build = more profit for a builder so it's in their best interests.

    How long is a piece of string :p

    I think single storey brick should be 9mths and double storey 12-15mths but I haven't done anything in brick this year - all been timber :)

    I've been told about 8mths for single storey by a builder. Things are a little quiet right now.

    My single story brick build last year was 9 months from slab down to hand over. this included Christmas period and a shortage in bricklayers which caused delays.
