    Got a question for the builders out there –

    How would I find out what the most common building materials being used out there are, and what price is being paid per unit for them wholesale? I don't need a comprehnsive list, just a few ideas so I can make some comparisons. I need specifications etc also so I can compare apples with apples.

    Or, if any builders out there who are doing volume construction are willing to let me know even say two products they use most commonly and the specifications etc, and what price per unit they pay, I'd be grateful.

    I'm asking to compare with some imported materials to see if it's viable to bring them in, particularly for central/northern queensland, but anywhere really.

    Thanks

    Matt

    contact a QS.

    You may find that there are some substantial savings to be made on face value however any currency fluctuations, time spent in customs , duties payable, lead time, manufacturing b*lls up, time spent in getting issues fixed, meeting Australian Standards, additional risks etc far outweigh the savings.

    Thanks Scott, I've contacted some of the QS I work with in other areas. Will see what comes up.
