Frequently Asked Questions
Preliminary Agreements provide a description of a project that allows the builder to assess the work required to formulate the scope and cost analysis. Depending on what stage you are at with your project, some of the preliminary work undertaken by J Turner Constructions inludes:
- Contour and Detail Survey
- Identification Survey
- Feasability Study
- Soil or Geotechnical Report
- Engaging of Designer or Architect to draw up concept and subsequently detailed design
- Engineering design
- Town Planning advice
- Other Specialist Consultant Reports
- Locating existing infrastructure within the site
- Cost Analysis/Quoting
If you are in the very early stages of land purchasing, or have yet to engage a Designer or Architect, you may require us to these tasks. If you have already got these documents in order, we may be required to review them in order to produce a tendering quote.
We get asked about a ‘sqaure meter’ rate alot.
How mush is a square meter?
The reality is, for a custom-built project, there is no set rate.
That is because no two projects are ever the same, no site conditions are the same and no clients are ever the same!
Often, the rate provided at the beginning of the quote process is different to the ultimate cost. A proper quote requires the builder to fully understand the plan, the scope of work, site condition, budget and time constraint.
For a quote to be meaningful, it must be accurate and contain detailed information for both parties.
This takes a significant amount of time and money to prepare, as each project is different in scope and site conditions.
Charging for a quote allows us to spend the time required to understand your project in depth.
