Frequently Asked Questions
 

1.  What is the process of building a house at BuildSabai?

Answer: There are two options which are

1) Customer already has the drawings

2) Customer does not have the drawings

In the first case, customer will consult with our architect about house’s style and functions in order to proceed with “Design Proposal” stage. After agreed on the design, our customers will sign on a “Design and Build Contract” as an official commencement of the work.  When the drawings are completed and approved, we would propose our customer with project quotation along with material list according to the house design. Also our engineer will present work phases that indicate both start and finish date. After the customer approved all the documents, the construction may begin.

In a second case, BuildSabai would propose project quotation to a customer according to the design along with work stages as in the first case.

2.  How is the process of estimation?

Answer: Regularly, general building company will estimate the cost of construction by calculating from the area of the house (sq.m.).

During the design process, the architect would help control the cost by designing the house in relation to the customer’s budget.
