New home / slow build
The building journey for us started July 2020, from meeting up with [Name Removed] to actually picking a design we fell in love with, all through the process at the beginning to now, [Name Removed] & [Name Removed] could not have done enough for us, from changing the design to suit our needs, the interior design we changed, had quotes for this quotes for that, they were on hand whenever we wanted to discuss the plans further, and finally we signed up, the score I have given is not for them, they would get a 5 stars from me, but the 3 stars is f...or the time it has taken to get to the position we are at now, we are well over a year from when we started this dream home, to only having our slab recently put down, then to be told it will be a further 2-3 weeks before they put the soak wells in, and could be another 6 months before we even see a brick layer on site, it is very frustrating to see houses on your street virtually at lock up, and yours is a concrete pad, just looking forward to seeing our house progress further and being able to call it MY HOME.

Slab down for 9 weeks and still no bricks up
Signed my contracts in June and got My slab poured on the 7th of October and I’m still waiting for a brick layer to start. Also trying to get info and updates from my construction consultant is like pulling teeth! Not happy at this stage that’s for sure! Everything pre construction was great. I know things are crazy at the moment with the building industry, but some progress would be great!
Questions & Answers
Hi Go homes,
What is the meaning of your 6+ months time frame to get the brickwork done?
Can you please explain because I don't seem to get an answer when I ask the "right person".
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Thanks for the question Freddy,
Currently the industry is experiencing a shortage of labour and materials - this is having a large affect on availability of brick trade.
We are experiencing in some areas of the metro area up to a 6 month delay for a trade allocation from the slab down stage of the build.

Thanks for the quick reply.
How long then from the bricky allocation to the actual brick works?
What it the time frame for this?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
I would just like to double check your job number.

Hi , what is the time frame for a building contract to be drawn up?
It was more than a year ago when I signed my contract. But based on my rough memory, it was about 2-3 weeks to get the building contract.
Thanks, the builder told us 6wks, now their saying another 4 was, it’s just doesn’t seem right.
Due to incredibly high demand, it is definitely taking us a little longer to process contracts than it did a year ago. Please be assured that our number 1 priority right now is ensuring all our current sales are processed through administration in time to meet stimulus eligibility requirements for our clients.
If you could provide your job number we'd be happy to take a look at your specific job and provide an update.

At what point does your ‘24 week construction timeline’ start? When the file moves to construction? When the slab is down?
And why won’t you provide the key miles stone dates from the build schedule to your clients to assist them in their planning?
Thank you for reaching out!
We pride ourselves on our build quality and commitment to deliver for our clients.
As your question appears to relate to a specific job file, are you able to please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your job number so we can look into this matter for you?
Thanks. However, there should be a definitive response to this regardless of the job file number and therefore shouldn't need looking into...
As every job is different, it is difficult to provide exact dates without knowing the exact project details. But we do strive to have clear and open communication with our clients to keep them in the loop with the many stages of their building process.
If you can provide us with your job number via email, we will be able to give you an answer specific to your build.
We look forward to hearing from you.
