WHAT IS A BUILD PARTNER?
To put it simply, our Build Partner service is committed to providing peace of mind that your new home is built well, allowing you to enjoy the construction experience and receive the home you expect.
Our service doesn't mean we are your builder, it means we are an independent advisory professional, working on your behalf to inspect the quality of workmanship in accordance with your designs and specifications, as well general good practice.
In addition, we aim to minimise the problems, defects and possible disputes that often arise, by acting as that crucial link between you and your chosen builder or tradesmen. We communicate on your behalf with the builders (on their level), and then report back to you with jargon-free updates, photos, advice and guidance. We check the work against your technical drawings, helping to significantly reduce the risk of any costly mistakes or problems with your home further down the line. We provide regular site visits, inspect key construction phases, and essentially give you a set of experienced eyes and ears on site throughout the duration of your build.
Jovic can also offer valuable advise and guidance when it comes to internal and external choices of kitchens, bathrooms, tiles, pools, fencing and other finishes.
WHAT CAN WE BRING TO YOUR PROJECT?
Understanding the build process, maintaining constant communication, and being present on site regularly is paramount to its success. Having the ability to make unbiased informed decisions right through from the design to the final finishing, will avoid the inevitable pitfalls that most home builders experience with their projects.
We encourage you to involve us from the start, so we can be proactive in avoiding any problems by addressing issues as they arise, and maintaining good working relationships. We ensure communication is clear and constant, and our regular site visits and independent inspections mean each critical stage of the build is checked, and then followed up on the returning visit, helping to ensure nothing is missed or covered up. We work for you, applying our extensive knowledge and experience to the project, making sure your builder is doing a good job and delivering the dream home they promised.
Choosing Jovic as your Build Partner means we are on hand to help you at every stage of the process. Our fee is based on a small percentage of your build cost, which we wholeheartedly believe is far outweighed by the value we add to your project and overall building experience.
WHAT'S YOUR PROJECT?
Our unique Build Partner service is particularly beneficial if you are a first time home builder with little to no experience of building, or live out of the area. We are your eyes and ears on site, communicating with your builder on your behalf, and providing help and impartial guidance every step of the way.
There are many benefits and cost savings to being an owner builder. However there are also many risks if you are not familiar with the building process. There are construction guidelines standards and codes that must be adhered too, and technical knowledge is essential for success.
An architecturally-designed home means there are many parties involved in the build process. Architects can often design impractically, and Builders can often find bespoke designs difficult to manage. As your Build Partner, we can offer valuable skills to help the process run smoothly.
