Home Building

Building a home is a collaborative project

As vested partners in your building experience, we want you to understand every stage of the journey.

Our process is not like any other you will find. Our thorough and detailed approach from the outset ensures the most accurate pricing and transparency along your new home build journey.

We are supported by a team of professional consultants, carpenters and sub-contractor trades who are committed to our philosophy of delivering exceptional workmanship.

Consultation

1 / 4

Initial meeting*

The initial meeting with one of our New Home Consultants ensures your needs and desires are understood.

Each project and site is unique. If you have land your consultant will visit your block and detail your new home assessment, budgets and requirements. If you are seeking land, our team can help secure the perfect block for you.

After this extended consultation phase you will have final drawings, colour selections, upgrades (if selected), time-frames and your final contract price.

Construction

1 / 6

Final contract*

This stage of your journey marks the beginning of your construction process. Here your final contract is completed and signed and we receive your full 5% deposit. Council applications are then lodged, after which your final construction drawings will be complete and all products ordered.

Documentation

In order for your build to begin the final Building Approval and Authority to Commence Construction are received. Construction will then commence within 20 working days.

Build program and site supervisor

Here you will meet your Site Supervisor who will oversee the entire construction of your home. Your supervisor will outline your personalised construction program and be available to discuss any questions you may have.

Construction programs generally follow the earth and site work stages below. And these stages form the key milestones of your HIA (Housing Institute of Australia) contract.

  • POOL SHELL
    If your plans include a pool, this is the first thing that needs to be considered and at this stage, we will excavate, supply and install your concrete pool shell.
  • BASE / SLAB
    Concrete piers and footings are supplied and installed, and then the house slab is poured.
  • ROOF AND ROUGHIN
    After the enclosed stage, we can install all facia and your roof. We also then complete all electrical pre-wiring and initial plumbing pipe work.
  • ENCLOSED STAGE
    Here your home’s frames are fixed, as well as all external wall cladding.
  • FIXING
    All internal components such as architraves, cornice, doors to rooms, shower trays, and cabinets are fitted and fixed in position.
  • PRACTICAL COMPLETION
    At practical completion, all plans and specifications—including all statutory requirements to the building work—are complete, in compliance with your contract.

As well as having a regular dialogue with your site supervisor, your Client Services Manager supplies weekly progress reports and photo updates throughout the journey of your build.

Near completion handover

After your construction program is complete, you will have an on-site near completion handover meeting with your Site Supervisor. This is a thorough and detailed walk through your property to ensure it has been finished to your specification.  Any concerns raised here will be promptly rectified prior to your official handover.
