Do we provide free quotes?
This will depend on the stage you are at with your drawings and design. When Concept Designs are completed as part of our process, we prepare a Preliminary Building Proposal at no cost.
We have different options available to get you all the way from Concept Designs through Council submission with a seamless and efficient process. Call us now to discuss which option suits your project best.
Do I need plans drawn up before I can get a quote?
In simple terms yes, without plans drawn each builder will interpret your instructions differently, hence the huge difference in price from each builder’s quote.
What insurance does the Builder have to provide?
Builders have to apply for home warranty insurance to the amount used in the contract. We must also carry Public Liability Insurance, Workers Compensation and Building Works Cover. Most financial institutions will ask the builder to supply this documentation prior to approving the finance.
Who draws up the plans?
Our service includes preparation of drawings by multi-skilled, highly experienced designers; we can prepare initial concept drawings for a small fee, provide the complete service from Concept to Construction Drawings or we can work with drawings provided by your architect.
Who lodges the building licence application?
Swan River Constructions will apply for the Building Licence once the contract has been signed.
What contracts do you use?
Swan River Constructions uses standard Housing Industry Association contracts.
Do you offer a fixed price contract?
Absolutely yes. We use our Preliminary Works package to determine all costs before we ask you to sign any Building Contracts. Once the final design and specifications have been agreed on you are presented with a fixed price contract. This will not change unless you request variations to the design or specifications after the signing of the contract. You will always be notified of an increase and we will never proceed with any changes that incur extra costs without your electronic approval via our online client portal.
