Is it hard to get an integrated dishwasher installed in an existing kitchen (and have the exisiting panels match)?

To give you a background:
I am building a home, and my builder quoted so much for a fully integrated dishwasher. The option they gave me is either this or I install it myself.

According to them, it costs more for them to do a second trip to the kitchen supplier to get the panel for the dishwasher.

I was wanting to shave some cost in the interim .. so wondering if I could just install a dishwasher post handover and then get a tradie to just find me a panel that matches my kitchen cupboard to install this? Is this feasible? Or does it have to be the same supplier?

I ask the supplier , but the moment they knew I was using their client (my builder) they didn’t want to really loose that client by giving me any cheaper option.

Get another quote for the kitchen. If they've added heaps to the quote and stated it is for that reason, they are taking you for a ride.

Yes just give whoever is making the kitchen the specs for the integrated dishwasher that you choose and they’ll make a panel to fit. Ikea do good ones.
