Professional Home Builders in North Shore
We’ll get things started by organising a time to talk or meet to discuss and understand your dreams, wants, needs, ideas, budgets, and timeframes. Once we understand your budget and goals, we’ll explain upfront whether you can realistically achieve your project within your budget. This prevents you from spending thousands of dollars on the design process only to find that you can’t afford to complete the project.
If you don’t have an architect or plans already drawn up, we’ll organise a time for you to meet with a design team we feel best suits your project. You’ll have the opportunity to sit down and discuss your ideas and goals directly with the architect. After your consultation, the design team will go away and put together an independent fees proposal and a tender for the design process.
If you accept the tender, we’ll work with the design team to ensure the design and scope are aligned with your budget and goals and provide input from a construction point of view to save on costs where possible. This protects you from a budget blowout or plans that do not match what you want.
Once the concept drawings are completed, we’ll engage an independent quantity surveyor to go through the project and provide high-level costings for the project using industry-standard rates. This allows us to ensure the concept plans are in the right ballpark in terms of cost.
Together we’ll meet with the architect who will present the concept plans and a breakdown of the estimated costs. At this stage, we can make adjustments to the concept plans without overly affecting the price of the design package.
Once the concept plans and budget get your approval, the architect will go ahead and start the work drawings and prepare the documentation required for Council (if building consent or resource consent is required).
While your application is with Council, we’ll tender out to the sub-trades needed for the project e.g. Painter, Plasterer, Electrician, Plumber etc. and put together a proposal of our costings. We’ll meet with you to go present our proposal and ensure you fully understand the costings and scope of the project.
After the building contract is signed and the building consent is approved, we’ll agree on a start date.
We’ll provide you with a schedule of works and estimated timeframe and then begin construction. We’ll be there every step of the way to offer advice and hold your hand (if you need it). Depending on the project, we’ll sit down and introduce you to a professional colour consultant, kitchen modeler, and interior designer, and then send you off to Harvey Norman where we can get you some good deals.
We hand the keys over and let you enjoy your new home, bathroom, kitchen, or outdoor living area!
