Ready, set, go – if you’re in the build zone

16 June 2011 - 5 min read

If you want to build somewhere and a builder has said that particular area is not in their building zone, it’s not because they don’t want to build your new home – most likely they do. But there are a few very good reasons why good builders limit their build zones.

Build zones enable builders to concentrate their resources to specific areas, which:

  • Allows them to use quality local trades and suppliers
  • Gives Site Supervisors a dedicated zone to watch over for optimal quality control
  • Ensures guaranteed building timeframes can be met.

If you already own land, it can be worth asking the sales consultant at the display home first, before you fall in love with a design, if they build in your suburb so you don’t choose the design and then leave disappointed!

Build zones are also under constant review as we move forward with the construction of new homes in different areas – so we do review each home on a case by case basis.

For example, at Porter Davis we’ve just extended our south eastern build zone to include the west side of Warrigal Road, up to Jasper/Grange Road, including the area in between the Princes Highway and the Nepean Highway.

This means we now cover the Bentleigh East and Hughesdale areas so it’s worth checking back with your local sales consultant when you’re ready to build if you do fall in love with a design and it’s not initially available in your area.
