What info do you need to supply the builders when tendering for a job?
- Full construction drawings (not DA drawings). Does this include all stuctural drawings? yes working drawings are a must. structural drawings too, if you want the price to be a quote with low margin for error vs an estimate
- Feature and Contour Survey - yes but you would already have this if youve applied for DA
- Certificate of Title - Proof of ownership you wont need this initially although some may ask for it. when you sign the contract it will be needed
- Watercorp Flimsy (ASCON) drawings for showing the connection from the mains sewer into each property yes, its a $30 odd dollar item just give it to them.
[*]Specification - eg What type, style and number of dwellings and the level of finish. style and number of dwellings etc will all be in your approved plans. more importantly you should try to specify PS/PC sums for certain items that will be allowed for differently by different builders. Eg if you specify say $15k for balcony screens, $40/m2 for tile supply, allow for large vitrified tiles if thats what youre going to put down, $3k per dwelling for aircon etc then what happens is that builders will be quoting like for like. It is a lot more upfront work this way but you will have a better chance of choosing between builders
- Scope of Work - who creates this?
- Schedule of Finishes - who creates this? you in conjunction with your building designer
- Soil report - has a large bearing on costs and slab/footing or is this taken care of during the creation of the structural drawings?
Which items above are mandatory or will help the tendering process by taking alot of the guess (hard) work out for the builder?
Do you need to supply them with a bill of quantities or is this what they calculate? i believe BOQ is done by estimaters and quantity surveyors so it will be on their end and not yours. for a large development it may be something you do but not likely for a smaller one
