How we work

Our SFN Constructions motto is “Realising your visions with attention to every detail from commencement to completion”. Giving your job the attention it deserves begins at the tendering stage. Our approach to tendering and then undertaking your job involves:

Understanding the Job
We make sure we really understand your job the details and the challenges before we commence tendering. Our ‘Engagement Team’ consisting of our Business Development Manager/Director ‘Frank Sciacca’ and Project Estimator ‘Geoff Dobble’ will work with you to understand your project and undertake the tender process to deliver to you the best possible comprehensive tender in order to meet your needs.

Fair Costing
Our professional estimator provides you with a fair costing for your job based on the information provided and our thorough understanding of the materials and labour involved. SFN Constructions takes the following steps in the tender process:

• Tender Process (4-6 weeks)
• SFN Constructions request drawings and associated specs
• Review plans and arrange site inspection with architect/owner/developer
• Commences tendering while maintaining client contact to enable the most accurate tender possible
• Delivers detailed tender offer
• Follow up and discuss tender offer
• Prepare contract for work to commence

Managing Your Job
We assign a qualified Working Foreman
to every job along with a team of SFN Constructions tradesmen. We call it the “Project Team”. Each Project Team is dedicated to a single project for the entire duration of the project.
The Project Team is overseen by our highly experienced and qualified Project Manager who reports to our very own Construction Manager/Director – Nando Sciacca.
Your Project Manager, along with the team, take responsibility for the job running on time and on budget, and according to our quality standards. Together they coordinate SFN Constructions staff and sub-contractors, liaise with you the client or your representative, and manage any variations.

The Kick-Off Meeting
Once the ‘Project Team’ is engaged and project contract documents have been finalized we huddle up and discuss your project in detail translating all the information available to the Engagement Team from the first discussion all the way through the tender process in order for the Project Team to have the best possible start to your project.

Job Schedule
For each project SFN Constructions creates a detailed Program of Work (Project Plan). This is used by the Project Manager and Working Foreman to schedule activities and monitor the progress. A whiteboard is located at each site which lists immediate tasks and queries for staff, sub-contractors and stakeholders.

Subcontractor Selection
SFN Constructions has a panel of trusted subcontractors that we have engaged on a number of previous projects. Each of these have been selected for their quality of workmanship, value and reliability.

Communication
We let you know if there are any unforeseen issues, or works that are outside the initial scope, and consult with you on how you would like things resolved.

Quality and Reliability
We stand by the quality of our work, materials, staff and subcontractors. We ensure we comply with all regulations and approvals – and also aim to keep the neighbours happy.
We regularly review our projects and share best practice across our job sites. Our reliable team of staff and subcontractors strive to deliver the best.

Workplace Health and Safety
SFN Constructions takes site safety very seriously, and has strict policies in place to ensure that staff, sub-contractors and visitors are kept safe.
