Developed by award-winning builders for everyday Australians
Born out of the frustration of seeing homeowners spend tens of thousands of dollars in the planning process of their new home build or structural renovation only to discover the work planned far exceeded the budget.
The reality is that up to 70% of the plans developed during the planning stages of a project are simply never built. Why? Because costs were never taken into consideration during the design stage. This leaves homeowners out of pocket and no closer to having their homes built or renovated.
What they are left with is very expensive blueprints for a home they simply cannot afford.
Designed by builders to simplify the way homeowners navigate the home design process
As professional builders, we see you, the homeowner struggling to navigate the early stages of the building process and becoming increasingly frustrated along the way. This is because of two key factors:
- The homeowner engages an Architect or Building Designer to create plans without speaking to the builder first. This resulted in beautiful plans. But the budget is not taken into consideration.
It’s only when the builder comes into the picture to price the project does the homeowner realise that they’ve just blown up to $15,000+ on a house design that they simply cannot afford to build. They then have to start again from square one and spend more money to re-design their project.
- The second issue is that the building quoting process is messy at best and downright dodgy at worst. It’s difficult to get even one quote let alone three, am I right? And if you do get three, the information and prices vary so much they are almost impossible to compare.
Let’s not even talk about the shady practices of some builders underquoting only to claw back money in the variations or providing one lump sum in the quote with no breakdowns but lots of provisions and contingencies that are as clear as mud!
It’s frustrating. It’s time consuming. It’s costly.
We hear you. We get it. We want to fix it.
B4U Build changes the way homeowners navigates the building process
The building industry right now is flawed. There are no consistent standards when it comes to builders’ quotes and the design stage of the process.
We are on a mission to change that.
With B4U Build, it is our goal to shape a better industry for everyone… The homeowner, the designers and the builders. We want to decrease the statistics of projects not built and increase builders’ productivity and improve workflows to ultimately create a stronger, more sustainable building industry in Australia.
Hi, I’m Jared Kemp. Multi-award-winning professional builder at RedKem Constructions.
I have been operating as a renovation and extension builder in the greater Brisbane area for over 10 years. I have seen far too often the frustration and confusion on homeowners faces as they navigate the early stages of the building process, making many mistakes along the way.
I don’t want to see anyone frustrated at the process. Building or renovating your own home should be an exciting time and a memorable journey. It doesn’t have to be a nerve wracking, stress inducing, wish it was over yesterday experience.
So, I have been working closely with trusted sources Australia wide to compile industry standard pricing. Pricing that I have then configured into a unique software that produces the information you need to make more informed decisions when it comes to your home building project.
Along with a clear blueprint that helps you navigate the design and quoting process with ease.
