BALI WOODEN PREFAB HOUSES,.................. (or are they ????)
An alert from the management:
"There are about 30 wooden prefab house manufacturers in Indonesia, 20 of them in Bali alone, of which only a few can be considered professional. Despite the cracking down by the indonesian Government on these - often illegal - (*) and far under par and insignificant companies they keep existing and operating, constantly poaching on our preserves and harming us and other professional companies.
Over the last 10 years we have collected a host of reports from customers, e-mails, articles in the local media, internet articles and new regulations implemented by the Indonesian Government which any wooden house manufacturer in Indonesia shall comply with. In the light of this we have produced a narrative which is a recapitulation based on own experiences and the information mentioned in the said collected documents. We are of the belief that it is worthhwile to read this narrative. It's an eye opener.
Our post deals with issues you should well understand before ordering a wooden prefab house from any prefabrication manufacturer in Indonesia. The post is an item-by-item list which which will help you finding the best options. Among others it mentions handy ordering guidelines, a minimum requirement of architectural and engineering capabilities that a company shall offer, a review of professional staff, how companies deal with cyclones (hurricanes and typhoons) and earthquakes, will a waranty be issued, will the companies use genuine tropical hardwood and other genuine building materials, customer references, company legislation (Act of Association), how to avoid spider webs, banana peels and pitfalls.
There are examples posted on the internet how clients were wrong-footed and ripped-off. By reading our 8 page document you will optimally be alerted, cautioned, informed and advised what to do and what not to do as to prevent you from entering into a contract with any knock-off company and buy a pig in a poke.
No, we are not trying to pursue you to buy from us. We just want to alert you to be extremely cautious when ordering a wooden prefab house in Indonesia, as not to blindly step into a gaping hole. It is about time to speak the truth and shame the devil !!!.
(*) Any company in Indonesia without legal company act and export documents in place is restricted from exporting goods. Yet they do, simply by bribing the export watch dog which nota bene has been appointed by the Government itself !!!! "
