Stage 1 - Design Meeting
At your convenience we'll go through stage one of our specially-developed two-part checklist to ensure we understand your design requirements for your new home.
We'll start with the following crucial works:
- Soil test
- Topographic (site levels)
- Preliminary planning requirements check
- Preliminary bush fire risk-level assessment check.
+ We'll visit the site and check the surroundings, e.g. fences, trees, neighbouring houses, view lines and access.
In the Design Presentation we'll provide three design options, which may be from our existing range or it may feature your customised concepts that are more relevant to your site.
We will then take the chosen plan and make any final amendments, working through the last sales checklist.
This very detailed list will help ensure we don't miss any important touches you want added to your new home.
We'll meet up with you again to price up your chosen inclusions and present the final building quote. This is the final 'Authority to Proceed' meeting.
Stage 2 - Contract Signing
The building contract will feature a fixed time frame and a fixed price (there may be rock exclusion in some areas). We only charge for work on materials actually fixed on site and we have an on-site start time within 21 days of permit issue, or any other paperwork and finance confirmation that required.
Stage 3 - Planning Approval
Together with a Town Planner, we formulate your documentation and get it ready for Council or private certifier. We coordinate all of the surveying and engineering requirements, as well as BASIX, final plans, environmental impact statement, window schedule, shadow diagrams, landscaping plans etc.
While your plans are in Council/Certifier, you will meet with our Colour Consultant to go through the internal and external house colours, kitchen finishes, floor coverings and fixtures and fittings. Any variations or upgrades are signed off at this stage prior to commencement of construction stage.
Stage 4 - Under Construction
There will be five crucial review times at which we invite you to meet with us:
- Lock Up
- Fix Out
- Practical Completion
