C2C Project Flow delivers you control though information and transparency.
As one customer said “I have all the benefits of an Owner Builder, without the hassles”
Have complete knowledge over to who your money goes to and when;
Not constrained by builders margins and set suppliers for fixtures and fittings;
Don’t pay hidden margins on any variations;
Builder will not control your funds;
Trades and suppliers deliver cost efficiencies with you, and not the builder, paying them;
Reduced risk of any party going broke;
All without diminishing any rights under standard contracts.
As an obligation free service, the C2C powered independent builder will also formally quote.
The major difference will be that he will be taking over C2C Project Flow and the information, to have quotes from the actual people who do the work on your project – the trades and suppliers.
And he will have had the time to ensure all of those doing the work have properly quoted.
The transparency of all the information and costs provided at the formal tender by the C2C powered builder is what sets him apart.
You are free to use all the information provided by C2C Support to obtain formal quotations from any builder.
This will ensure that all are quoting on your requirements, and any shortcomings a builders quote may have, can become clear for you.
You are not obligated to the independent C2C networked builder, you are free to choose any builder to quote.
The Working Drawings can only contain general information.
This can lead to wide ranging final quotations hard to evaluate. C2C Support will provide a Tender Package with full mark ups along with individual Scope of Works documents, for each trade and supplier.
C2C Support will also introduce you to one of their independent networked Builders, who also recognise that the traditional method of contracting is flawed and use C2C Project Flow as well, to deliver the Savings – Security and Service you deserve.
This introduction will include an obligation free Preliminary Quotation ahead of the formal tender request.
As mentioned, the cost of the C2C Support service is dependent on the complexity of the project. However it is normally around $1650 incl. GST.
There will be a need for you to engage external consultants to create the further information for the Working Drawings.
This will normally require us working with an engineer, surveyor and certifier at least.
It is at the commencement of this stage we recommend that you further engage the C2C Support team to continue to build further information, that designers do not normally provide, to be ready for Tendering.
The Design Development is the assembly of all the necessary construction information to turn the final sketch into what is known as “working drawings”. These drawings enable the project to be actually built.
This stage may also address any town planning issues and any other issues applicable to your project.
This is where the C2C Project Flow delivers great benefits to you. Freedom to choose fixtures and fittings in an open market at raw cost without builders margins.
Don’t be stuck with builders set suppliers.
The C2C Shopping List Program obtained at the sketch time, gives plenty of time to “shop till you drop” or be satisfied with the samples. All controlled by a budget, giving you control over time, cost and choice.
As there can be vast differences in the type of project being supported, the fee that C2C Support asks can vary.
For a typical renovation or new home the fee is around $550 incl. GST.
The fee is, well below any estimating services that other designers may suggest, and additionally, you receive the important Shopping List Program.
The C2C Support team provides a Trial Budget Pack
Two Trial Budgets to check the pricing of any design changes
A Shopping List Program
Using our services is about you controlling the decisions based on information. You’ve started the project well by tying the design initially to the free Trial Budgets.
We believe for such a small investment, just to cover basic cost for C2C Support, that continuing the pathway with any changes during the sketch stage, checked by an additional Trial Budget, makes a whole lot of sense.
With you having the control that we are on the right path after ticking the boxes with costing and finance, this is where we develop more detailed design, from your concept ideas. We know from experience, there will be some changes expected.
It is the importance of tracking our sketch development against the expected tender price that we recommend C2C Support to become a consultant in effect, to keep the budget driving the design outcome.
C2C Project Flow is just a cloud based software program.
The C2C Support team uses a data base of real prices from real suppliers and trades to enable the assessment of your Concept Discovery information.
This will include examples of fixtures and fittings to have your wish list and budget tested.
We can also introduce you to a major bank to check out your funding, both for the cost of design and total project should you need that, based on the Trial Budget information.
All before you commit to the time and cost of final design. And these first Trial Budgets are free, so you can understand the importance of timely information to take control of the first challenges of:
Can my wish list and budget be delivered and funded before I commit to full design?
So a support team called C2C Support uses C2C Project Flow to link all parties together to provide the transparency of all information for you to maintain control of the decision making.
We understand cost of design is an important consideration, and we can suggest a bridging finance option to enable you to roll the initial design cost into the total Project funding later.
Cost comes down to the level of service provided.
Yes, there are designers that may offer a lower cost than us, but remember their services will be very limited in most cases and, can they reduce the risks that you will normally face?
We are confident, a pathway under C2C Project Flow, will deliver savings, to more than offset our costs, as well as many other benefits not seen before in our Industry.
So what are the first steps in you taking control of the decision making?
This is where we start to provide a service that few other designers can match. We stress that obtaining information at the right time is the key to your ultimate Project success.
The first task is a Concept Discovery session. This will collect your wish list and budget ideas, and from that information, the C2C Support Team will provide free Trial Budgets.
It may take a number of Trial Budgets for you to fine tune your wish list and budget before committing to the full design process. We are here to help you achieve that outcome.
We in the past have also witnessed that our customers are underserviced, faced with high risks, and cost blowouts.
Working with us in starting your Project under C2C Project Flow you will be able to connect the dots with timely transparent information of all processes and construction costs for you to take control of the decision making, to achieve Savings Security and Service unseen before.
