Our Projects

We have built projects ranging from single houses, up to 42 apartments on a block. We live and breathe the construction motto of time/cost/quality, with our overall focus on quality. It is very rare for a project to meet the expectations of all three, (ie the highest quality, at the cheapest cost, at the shortest time) however, we believe we are among the best in achieving the best outcomes overall.

It is a widely held myth that construction contracts should be determined mainly by price, and it is our strong belief that you get what you pay for. Most people do not buy the cheapest clothes, nor wear the cheapest shoes, nor drive the cheapest car they can afford. So why pick your builder by the cheapest price?

If you are not in the construction industry, you would not know the lengths some builders go to save costs: whether it is by substituting cheaper overseas sourced fittings and fixtures, halving insulation, or deliberately underquoting your job to win your business, and then slowly raising up the price through variations through the contract (or the worse: going bankrupt halfway through your project and re-emerging in a new company shell!).

The building industry needs more practitioners who understand the value of intelligent cost value analysis, and you should ask your builder to work with you in a joint partnered arrangement to give you the best quality for the best cost. Not the cheapest cost.

Equisent Constructions have the knowledge and the experience through years of professional construction consultancy to guide you through the maze of the construction process, providing guidance every step of the way. We work harmoniously with architects, designers, financiers, consultants, and developers and we can help you with your project.

 

SERVICES

Fixed Price Contract
If your project has been designed by an architect, we are able to quote on your fully specified project, and give you a fixed price. Unlike most other builders that normally give you a one page quote, we are able to (on request), itemise the entire quote by trade list breakdown, and subcontractor pricing, and reveal our builder's margin for that job. That way there are no surprises at the completion of the project.

Design and Construct
If you have a concept in mind, and a certain budget, we are able to "work backwards". In conjunction with one of our network of architects (or your architect) we can design a product to meet your price. This works well for projects that are financially tight, and where you want the best "bang for your buck". We provide you with a trade breakdown list and proposed specifications list, and state our builder's margin upfront.

Joint Venture Arrangement
We are property developers too. We know what property developers go through and we speak your language. If you are a new developer (or an old one!) and need a joint venture partner to construct your project and share in the profits, we are able to come to some arrangements to help you. 

Our synergistic relationship with the overall Equisent Group means we have access to project development finance, private equity, and investors who we can bring together to make your project a reality.

Construction Consulting
New to the game and need some Development Management, Project Management, or Construction Management experience? Starting a new project and trying to get bank funding but the bank says you need more experience on your team?
