Where To From Here?


Are you unsure what's required when contracting a builder for your project? Below are a few helpful bits of information to get you started.

Our First Meeting

Michael Duncan can come to your home or site to consult with you on your building needs, discussing any information that you will need to provide us so that we can give you a cost estimate.
This is also a good time for you to ask any questions about the building process and communications during the project. We are happy to answer any enquiries you may have either during this meeting or at any time during the process.

Referrals And Examples

If you are interested in seeing more of our building work, we have a portfolio of previous projects for prospective clients to view.

Building Plans And Designs

If you're looking to build a new home, we can use your preferred plans or direct you to a recommended architect or draftsperson to prepare and submit your plans for council approval.
Design planning is also available for clients after an extension or renovation, allowing us to schedule in your building task as soon as the plans are ready.

Cost Estimates

Once we have an idea of the scope of your project, we are able to provide you with a cost estimate. Preliminary costing of your building work ensures that the work completed is within your budget.
All materials used for our building projects are suited to local conditions, including the use of treated timber frames and permanent termite protection barriers. Cost estimates are free, with no obligation to proceed.

Comprehensive Quote

We provide you with a detailed quote, which outlines all materials to be used, as well as all costing and specification information.
Michael Duncan Constructions endeavour to include all possible costs in this quote, to avoid any additional charges (where possible) to your final price.

Contracts & Building Agreements

Prior to commencement of work, a contract will be completed. This will outline intended timelines for the building stages, as well
as defining payment dates.
Michael Duncan Constructions will provide a fixed price or cost plus price for all building works. We will provide a copy of all contracts to our clients prior to building work commencing.
