Builder supported QA inspections are a growing trend.
Building Houses – Quality Assurance does matter – The result will be judged!
Being a new home builder is to be admired, it takes planning and execution to produce a quality finished product that will be the valued shelter to many people and or families.
Unlike building a public asset, the home being built will in most cases only be judged by the owner, their family and their friends. Whilst this may only be a few people, they all have a voice, and feedback, good or bad, will carry a long way. What’s that old saying? If someone is happy with your work, they will tell one person, if they’re not, they tell ten – this is even more true in today’s society with the power of social media and review sites.
Building multiple homes at once is a serious logistical achievement that, if handled well will advance decent cost savings to those paying for a build. This has allowed many people living in this country to achieve owning a home that might otherwise not have been possible.
With the upside however comes some risk and that needs to be effectively managed. Each of Sydney’s volume builders will have a structure supporting the Site Construction Manager, however, with them managing, in many cases, 15+ builds at once, it only takes a few build issues to result in builds that become burdened with compromise or delays and potentially result in a finished product that doesn’t meet an owner’s valid expectations.
Builder supported QA inspections are a growing trend and show good initiative by a builder. Not only does it demonstrate to their customers they are committed to delivering a well built, well finished home for them, it has the potential to save the builder real money in the reduction of remedial repairs or adjustments post completion.
Limiting post completion repairs keeps owners onside and promotes confidence for future customers when good reviews are observed.
