Hi guys, I am looking for advice/guidance/suggestions on selecting a builder for my first ever construction project. Our few previous properties have been established properties. This is the first time we are trying to build a property. We have a land in South West Sydney, Camden council. Lot size 451sqm. We are planning to build a single storey house with an attached granny flat as IP. Having started the journey to decide on a builder, our thought is to go with one of the fairly known project builders hoping that the process will be a little more smooth than the lesser known (hence difficult to check credibility) small/mid size builders. We are time poor as well as have limited experience and hence do not expect to be able to a great job in monitoring the project closely. We are keen to learn from this first project. We understand that we will have to pay a premium for this but willing to take that hit to some extent. Having discussed with a few (10+) project builders, following 4 are being considered: Beechwood Fowler Metricon Sekisui The main reason to select these builders are based on their availability of standard designs which can be modified to fit a GF to our requirement and to some extent the cost. I will like consider the factor of their speed of execution but I guess it is very difficult to know or predict. My experience with Beechwood sales office till now has been very good. They seem to be the only one offering a free tender. They have been very responsive with all our requests of amendments in layouts till now. However, I have read quite a bit of negative reviews about their delivery process. Does anybody here have any experience or information on them? The other 3 builders require tender fee, which I am yet to pay. Any suggestion/advise on these builders or about other builders will be great. We will like to move as quickly as possible to sign up a contract. Have a good day.
