I couldn’t say what their “process” is I’m sure they have thousands of them and most likely isn’t meant to be customer facing. That’s something you can ask their QA…

Wisdom do have a QA team. Just because you had a bad experience with Metricon doesn’t mean all volume builders are the same. I have built quite a few houses…

Our landscaping has also started. We had wet fit out last week although not a lot of progress the last fortnight.

Once tiling is complete he will have a rough idea.

Tiger Tails do not protect the cables, nor to they indemnify the builder or trades against damage. They are purely a last line of defence Warning Mechanism only... nothing more.

External drainage usually happens and then frame delivery. Depends on your site/constraints.

Your whole site will be used for access and deliveries not just your driveway. It is standard to protect the whole width of your cables.

Get a qoute from Sydney Tiger Tails they may be cheaper than endeavour but that’s a lot of cable to cover. Unfortunately they are your responsibility and not the builders.
