Stage 1 - Site assessment
In this stage of the process, you will receive a full planning analysis of the knock down rebuild strategy that is specific to your property.
This is achieved through the following steps:
1. Initial Site Assessment - A G.J. Gardner Homes new home consultant will come to your site, take photos of the site and discuss your thoughts, needs and objectives for the knock down rebuild process.
2. Initial Planning meeting – Here you will experience a no obligation, no cost meeting with your local G.J. Gardner Homes planning consultant. It is important to have this preliminary discussion to ensure that whether opting to knock down and rebuild is the most feasible option for your future property developments.
3. Minor Work Agreement – This is the final planning stage and the part where you will enter into a commitment with your local G.J. Gardner Homes to look after your future knock down rebuild project. The initial fee will include site planners, site surveyors, engineers and designers to ensure everything you want from your new home is achievable and that it complies with local councils building rules and regulations.
Stage 2 - Consultants at work
This is essentially the tricky part of the project and the exact reason why you should put your trust in your local G.J. Gardner Homes builders to look after this project. To plan the project all of the consultants need to ensure that their plans are cohesive with each other’s. You local G.J. Gardner Homes’ planner will coordinate all of the consultants and ensure every aspect is considered and it all works together.
This is also the stage where your local G.J. Gardner Homes planner will ensure that all site tests, soils tests, bushfire and flood checks are completed and up to date with your local councils rules and regulations. Generally, when you knock down and rebuild is it common to find that when your original house was built it was compliant, but now that regulations have increased and tightened in the last 30 years, changes will have to be made to ensure your house is built to comply with current laws and regulations for your safety.
At this stage, you will also get to work with your new home consultant to discuss any personalised design features you would like to incorporate in your new home. You will also get to enjoy a colour selection meeting and really start to visualise how your new home is going to look like both internally and externally.
Stage 3 - The Work Begins
After the building permit is approved, your local G.J. Gardner Homes builder will get to work building your new home from the foundations up, ensuring all your plans are delivered accurately and with the highest quality finishes. Your local G.J. Gardner Homes builder will only use the finest local tradesman and always ensure you get great value from your materials through exclusive deals that are created with local suppliers.
Your new home will come with a fixed term contract that will ensure you will know when your home will be delivered and that it will remain on budget. At the end of stage 3, your new home will be built and you will get to experience the excitement of living in your brand new home.
