I advise you to talk to local professionals unaffiliated with your builder. When I had my house built a few years ago, I trusted them and their people. But later, when things started going wrong, and I had to call for professional help, it was discovered that some pretty big corners were cut - which were expensive to do properly... So pay attention to everything, and get independent eyes to look at that which you can't see.
That's why I said hire an architect. To not do that for a new build is folly. Also you need an experienced project manager. Assuming you know what you're doing when you've never done it before is also folly.
