Our Design & Construct
Service, explained.

Throughout the D&B process we will offer alternative suggestions, strategies and practical solutions where possible to assist in keeping with your design and budget constraints, with the aim of delivering your dwelling on time and in accordance with the Design Brief.

Stage 1
Stage 1


Upon approval of our Design & Build fee proposal, we will arrange for the subject site to be surveyed as well as surrounding properties and the road reserve. Also during this process, our qualified Architect will take note of and record all appropriate measurements and surrounding details in preparation to produce conceptual floor plans.

Following our formal research stage and prior to commencing works on the conceptual plans, we will spend time with you going through the initial design brief in further detail whilst at the same time discussing some design options that we have in mind for your home. This additional information gathered will provide us with clarity to move forward.

Stage 2
Stage 2


At this stage and based on the information that has been collected, we will produce 2-3 concept floor plans for your review. We will sit down and run through our design intentions whilst at the same time noting your feedback and providing alternative solutions where required.

You will then have the opportunity of taking away a set of these plans in order to review and consider them prior to moving onto Design & Development.

Stage 3
Stage 3


Based on client approval and acceptance to proceed from the concept stage, we will make amendments to the plans as per your feedback and produce detailed scaled & dimensioned plans of the internal floor areas, external elevations and sections.

Towards the completion of this stage we will invite you to our office to deliver the design in 3D format. During this discussion we will be able to walk you through the model of your new home and make adjustments where required.

Stage 4
Stage 4


We are now at a point whereby the design is almost at completion. During this time the shadow plans and statement of environmental effects together with any other forms and documents required to lodge the DA will be produced and obtained.

Also at this stage, we will present the dwelling to you via our 3D Modelling software and make any minor adjustments as required to finalise the design.

Prior to the plans being lodged with council, we will send them to our qualified estimator to provide a lump sum formal detailed quote. This information will enable you to provide instructions on whether or not you require us to incorporate any cost-saving solutions in the final set of documents.

Stage 5
Stage 5


Post council approval / DA Consent, we will begin the process of obtaining the Construction Certificate which is required before any works can commence on your new home.

This is a detailed and complex process whereby we will engage our Private Certifier, Structural Engineer, Hydraulic Engineer, and other necessary consultants required to satisfy the requirements of the consent.

Stage 6
Stage 6


Our Project Management team will prepare a construction program and engage all necessary subcontractors required to complete the build. We will also guide you through the process of selecting fixtures and fittings, providing details of our preferred suppliers.

Throughout the building phase of your new house, we will have regular client meetings to both inform you of progress to date and guide you through the next stages. We will also provide assistance in relation to your obligations and answer any questions you may have.

At certain milestones of the project, our nominated certifier and engineers will inspect progress and provide certification of the works. We also encourage external input in an effort to minimise any disturbance to neighbouring residences, whilst preserving both the integrity of the build and our brand.

When practical completion of your new house is reached, we will compile all the relevant documentation and certificates required to obtain the Occupation Certificate, which will form part of our customised Handover Manual issued to you upon possession of the finished house.

Stage 1
Stage 1


Site fencing, temporary services, amenities, WHS systems, and sedimentation controls are all put in place prior to the commencement of any works onsite. Once this is all set up, licensed demolition contractors will complete the required works to have the site ready for new construction.

Stage 2
Stage 2


To start this process, our registered surveyor will peg-out the new dwelling grid lines and site boundaries. Bulk excavation, spoil removal, and cut & fill works take place followed by detailed excavation for new footings and piers. At this point, we also install all necessary underground drainage, stormwater, and electrical services before the new structure comes out of the ground. This is the most critical stage in the construction process.

Stage 3
Stage 3


Whether your structure is concrete, brick, timber framework, structural steel or a modern wall/floor system, this is where the shape of your building starts coming together. Once the structure is complete we will coordinate engineer and certifier inspections. This construction phase is by far the quickest.

Stage 4
Stage 4


This is one of the most exciting parts of the build process, windows and doors are installed, roof sheeting and/or tiles are completed along with gutters and fascia systems, followed by cladding and/or brickwork. Now your dwelling is completely watertight ready for internal works to commence.

Stage 5
Stage 5


During this phase of the construction process, all plumbing, electrical and air conditioning services are installed into their correct position. Following this, all walls and ceilings are insulated and plasterboard and/or feature panelling systems are installed, set & sanded. We will also install all floor finishes, internal doors, skirtings, architraves ready for paint whilst your wet areas are waterproofed, tiled and joinery/benchtops are installed. This stage is by far the longest of the building phase.

Stage 6
Stage 6


Now we are at the tail end of the build process. Painting works are completed, and final fixtures & fittings are installed along with appliances before our professional contract cleaners come through. Electrical, plumbing, and mechanical services are all tuned on and commissioned whilst we gather all relevant Certification documents. Once Practical completion is reached and the contract is finalised, the property is handed back to you.
