Overall good with some rooms for improvements

published

The building coordinator and site supervisor are both very easy to contact. They've been the star player of this process as they went above and beyond to help me. However I cant say the same for the pre-build process as there are times that the process has been frustrating with deadlines coupled with unreachable consultants.

Having said all that, like I said before, the building coordinator is very patient and made sure that I was taken care of so my experience is not bad at all

Smooth process!

published

[Name Removed] was our building coordinator. She went above and beyond her role and advocated for us the whole way. We were treated like real people, not just another build number. Thank you [Name Removed] for making our experience smooth sailing! Highly recommend Porter Davis, especially for first time builders. Ten out of Ten.

Lock Up Stage progressing well

published

We just have finished the Frame Stage. There has been hiccups along the way but all good now. Our Project Coordinator Jessie P has been always there to support. She has been excellent in liaising and keeping us updated with the progress of the build. Our Site Supervisor Jarryd is very helpful too.

We are now into the Lock Up Stage and it is progressing well. Looking forward to the next and final phase of the build. We cannot wait to see the finish product and the delivery of a quality workmanship.

Super excited for the succeeding stages. Thank you and all the best PD Family!

Site start - looking forward to a great build!!

published

Although it has been a long journey to get to the stage of site start for our KDRB project, we have been well supported by the teams in PD along the way. PD teams across sales, WOS and especially our building coordinator are professional and very approachable. There were some complications with the town planning process with the local council, while PD has been very accommodating and provided lots of support along the process. Well done and we really look forward to the completion of the project!

Poor communication & extreme delays!!!!

published

Slab poured on November/2021 for Toorak 58 in a Western suburb. Still frame not started, they don't even know when its going to happen. Majority of the time co-ordinator in the office do not answer the phone calls, even response for the email takes weeks. Still we are awaiting for a reply for an email sent over 4 weeks ago.. Site supervisor doesn't know the answer for the timber issue. Its been over four(4) months now, no one take responsibility. Total negligence in every sort of aspect so far except sales. Extremely disappointed..

Communication feedback

published

I’m 1/3 of the way through my build so I can’t comment on the quality just yet but so far my experience with PD has been good. Communication has been great from the sales agent to WOS to both my BC and BS. My emails have been replied mostly within 24 hours and my BS often calls for updates unless there is nothing going on site. PD if you see this, please let me know if there is a way I can leave a good feedback for the team with some specific names? These peeps deserve recognition. I’m glad to be able to have these specific people with a great communication skill working on my job! I was nervous because I’ve heard stories about bad BS not communicating etc but I’ve got myself a good one!

Fantastic, half way through build, highly recommend

published

Sales rep was amazing, contracts were a little tricky but not necessarily Porter Davis, lots of liasing with engineering was required. Since moving to the construction stage we can not fault at all. Extremely well organised, lots of communication and made aware of possible delays, although thankfully we seem to have missed them, running very smoothly.
Lock up stage was completed last week. Can't wait for handover!!!

Great Representative of Porter David - [Name Removed]!! Good knowledge and service provided , process explained in detail. She offers us wonderful support through the whole process. Even now, it is not her part of job, she is still providing updates and contact us to follow up the process. Hope to work with her again in our next build.

Excellent Builders, Excellent Process.

published

The building experience with porter davis homes was absolutely excellent. Despite lockdowns, the builders worked efficiently and produced a home that I am so far extremely happy with. The builder also kept me in the loop so I felt involved with the process. Could not be happier with the service I received.

Bad experience and regret to build with PD

published

We are still in building stage with PD, but overall experience is a disaster. Our building coordinators were changed 3 times during tender stage, and the construction superior already changed once after 2 months since building started. The 2nd BC was shocking. She only replies to us after 72 hours, which means we can't even chase up because it was less than 72 hours. Of course, even we desperately chase up by multiple emails and phone calls, it was a black hole. It takes weeks to get things updated in our tender documents. Don't even mention the mistakes. And the progress of our build is extremely slow, just comparing our build progress with all the other build in my neighborhood.

Shoddy, awful and shocking.

published

I don’t want to give a star as I would prefer to give negative stars if I can. My house has been under construction for 14+ months and still yet to be completed and has many significant issues. Please do not go for PD unless you want to sink your money.

Hi PD Team,

Can someone please tell me the exact name of carpet when they order from FlooringXtra. I am trying to order a sample but unfortunately can’t the it as the website has completely different name. We have chosen “Cut Pile Palandri Steel 2142 PET” at our WOS.

Flooringxtra people suggested PD has internal names and we need to ask PD for exact name they use when ordering.

Regards
