Initial Meeting

Normally we'll meet you for the first time at the project location, to get a sense of the space you're working with, and what it is you're trying to achieve.

This meeting gives us a chance to talk through your masterplan, both what you want to do and where you’re up to on that journey. Maybe you have your plans already and are good to go, but maybe you want us to guide you to a architect or draftsman to get started.

This meeting will last around an hour and give you a chance to get to know us and how we can help.

Making plans

The most important piece of any build or renovation is the planning. If you've already completed your plans and surveys then we can skip this step, but if not then we’ll put you in touch with one of our preferred architects or draftsmen to get your vision drawn up, both to meet your needs, design-style and budget.

Estimates and Contracts

Once we have a great set of plans to work to, we can put together a price for you and let you know what it will cost. We will also be able to speak to you about options for reducing costs where we can see them.

Approvals

At this point you’ve seen the plans and you’ve fallen in love with your future home. Now we need to get the approvals in place, either via DA or CDC (see the link below to understand these). We will take the hassle out of this for you and coordinate all of the approval documents.

Once you are approved and ready to go, we set a date and the real fun begins!

Building Works

During the build itself, we use a scheduling system called CoConstruct. You will have your own login and can check in at any point to see exactly where the project is up to, what selection items you need to decide on and any other information you might want to look at. It’s also a perfect way to arrange variations (if on Fixed Price) and sign off on those before the work on them begins, to keep a close eye on your budget. CoConstruct gives you real time access to exactly what’s happening on your home. You can also call/text/email with us whenever you need to. One of our foreman will be dedicated 100% to your job for the duration of the project, so you always have your go-to-guy on site every day.

Aftercare

The day is finally here, your home is ready! We will provide you with a nice thick binder that contains all your finishes, paint colours, brands, warranties, certificates, etc.

After this we will also check back with you at 3 months and then again at 12 months, to make sure everything is exactly as it should be. You can rest assured that your home will be perfect and our aftercare will keep it that way.
