NATA CONSTRUCTION – FAQ

 

Whether you are building a new commercial facility, a home, an addition or renovation, choosing a general contractor can feel overwhelming. Below we have listed the most frequently asked questions. Hope you can find the information you need to decide and prepare when you are building in Bali

WHAT IS A GENERAL CONTRACTOR? AND WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES?

 

In the simplest of terms, a general contractor is in charge of everything, keeping your project on schedule and on budget, and working with you for the entire length of your building design and building construction project. The general contractor handles construction management duties, including procurement of necessary materials, hiring of subcontractors for specific building construction duties, communication with architects, vendors and trades, monitoring schedule and budgetary concerns, and overall supervision of the construction site. 

HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCES DO YOU HAVE?

 

Our company established 7 years ago with a young team and partners, and we have over 12 years of experienced construction manager and supervisor and a proven track record of excellence throughout Bali. Together, we will make your building design and construction project a reality.

HOW ARE YOU MANAGING YOUR PROJECTS?

In normal condition we are used to running 3-4 projects in different area around Bali. We will always have a standby supervisor on site in working hour, along with a project manager that will come to the site 2-3 times a week. the size of the team we put on site will depend on the size of the project itself. We also have a supporting team in our office that handles purchasing, logistic and accounting administration.

HOW ARE PAYMENTS MADE AND WHEN ARE THEY MADE?

Payment is absolutely not required upfront. A detailed contract will be drawn up which will state set milestones customised to your project/works when interim payments will be required. and when we had the deal then usually we do 20% down payment and monthly payment after that up to 95% and usually our clients keep 5% for the maintenance period for 3-6 months

HOW CLOSE DO YOU STAY TO YOUR TIMELINE AND BUDGET?

The budget and a reasonable time frame are stated in the contract, which is signed by all parties with copies provided before the start of any project. If by chance the project does run late it is usually caused by two reasons; one, unpredictable weather and two, changes of plan and decision on the design, this will impact on the additional cost and the timeline depend on the case. If it’s not due to two of the reasons then we do what we say, when we say.

WHAT ABOUT PERMITS?

Depending on your location and what is being done, a permit might be required or it may not. In Bali, before starting a construction, when you have the design and drawings for your building you need to have an IMB (built permit), and before you start your construction on site, you need to get another permit from banjar (village area coordinator). We can refer you to our trusted partner for the built permit consultation, and for the banjar permit we will handle it for you.

WHAT SHOULD I BE ASKING MY CONTRACTOR?

A few key questions to ask could be: “How long have you been in business?”, “Have you ever done a project like this one, if so tell me about it?”, “Do you have insurance?”, “Who does the work; you, your employees, or is the project completely done by sub-contractors?” With years of experience under our belts, Nata Construction is happy to provide all of these answers, and provide references if need be.

WHAT IS A CHANGE ORDER?

A change order is a written statement signed by the customer authorizing the contractor to do additional work not included in the original contract. The change order should be signed before the additional work is started, but often it is not in order to keep the project moving. The amount specified is due when the project is completed. A change order also may be written when a contractor comes across any unforeseen damage or problem.
