Default Riverland (Breslau)

We're building a home in Breslau, in the Riverland Community. The builder is Empire Communities.

I haven't found much online regarding this builder, or people's experiences with Empire. We have our structural and design/colour meetings coming up in a few weeks. I'd love to hear from anyone who has been through this process with Empire.

Any pointers?

Recommended upgrades?

Upgrades to avoid?

General advice on dealing with Empire.

Thanks.

1500-1600 homes when all phases are complete.

Phase 1 almost complete. Phase 3 was just released.

I never did get a reply, here. We're set to close in 4 weeks.

If you're thinking of building with Empire in Riverland, and are looking for info as I was, PM me. I'll tell you the how the experience has been for us.

(continuing to post even though no one has ever responded - hoping this is helpful to someone doing their homework in the future. I couldn't find very much online about Empire when I was doing mine)

We had our PDI inspection this morning - 2 days before close. 4 pages of items to be addressed.

Our PDI was with the builders QA inspector. This was the first he had been in the house (typically he does his own inspection more that 1 week earlier).

Too many houses closing in too short a period... We'll see if they complete before close.
