Cabinetry not build to plans on architect build

Architects solicitor, atm have got a quote from cabinet maker with price they gave to solicitor who forwarded to us.
Waiting on detailed plans from them first.

Thanks Supersleuth
They got their insurer in who then got a solicitor in and looks like all sorted, we were offered a settlement, thanks though not a bad idea

They were paid to manage, they needed to own this problem, i’m going to have to teach them a lesson I think and this problem will own them. They have…

It seems the architects kitchen detail plan not lining up with her floor plan is the issue , but yes there is no variations on price or anything...

Thanks so much Chippy, just want what we were shown and paid for as the end product ie don’t want to do anyone over.
Guess they will have to weight up…

Yep thanks so much.
We are going back to the builder now to ask his side.
The architect said “
On the floor plan the kitchen and adjacent hall cupboard does not line…

Great, have measured the pantry and you are correct. The wall has been built approx 250mm shorter than the plans.

Yes over tower is 640

The problem is the cupboards don’t line up down the hall.
The cupboards don’t have the depth we asked for.
The island bench is not as wide as we wanted or paid…

If I put a measuring tape in the hallway cupboard off the pantry it’s about 560mm deep plus the door about 20mm

1 month1 monthsunny74sunny74 posted:

Yes, wouldn’t this change have to be put in writing somewhere and then be seen as variation, any idea who’s job it would have been to do that?
Thanks so much,…

Thanks
The cupboards in the hallway were meant to be approx 300 mm deeper and that would put them in line with cupboards on other side of that nib ( we…

Great idea, many thanks.

Yes I think you’re right, from what I’ve read the Board or architect qld BOAQ is just a front and a waste of time complaint too.
Was reading an article on…

Picture is worth a thousand words.
3600 is what we had contracted builder for, 3600 is what architect sent plans to other builders and contractors to build.
3336 is what cabinet maker…

This is the problem I don’t know who to target most.
Legal advice is we sue the architect for failing duties and then sue the builder as well who in turn…

We employed architect for every component.
For us to have paid for a master builder and architect a large sum of money and then shown plans and drawings by the architect…

Architect was engaged for sketch design, design development, construction documentation and contract administration,
CA includes monthly meetings with builder and client, defects inspections at completion and asses builders progress claims and…

The cabinet maker was supplied the architects drawings which were correct and supplied a quote based on them.
Then somewhere along the line the cabinet makers drawings changed,
hence everyone else placing…

This is the architects response to us, they also reviewed and confirmed the drawings but didn’t sign off, they also sent out for quotes for the original 3600 cabinetry as…

The architect plans went to the builders to tender on.
The cabinet makers drawings are different to those the builders tendered on and the main change is the width of the…

We paid a substantial fee for someone to manage as that is their profession.
Google the definition of an architect or look in a dictionary.
They are self professed experts who’s job…

Problem is the builder, electrician and plumber worked off one set of drawings and the cabinet maker worked off another set.
Neither the cabinet maker, builder or architect is accepting…

Yes Chippy is right unfortunately...
The architect did try and say that was a solution but it would be at our cost as well.
essentially the whole kitchen from the LHS of…

It’s still a kitchen but it’s less practical, looks unsightly and isn’t what we paid for so we just want what we paid for

Hi pictures attached... as hopefully you can see the architect designed a spine hallway through the house, all walls, cupboards, rammed earth walls are in line.
