Our Building Process



Bring along your individually designed plans direct from your own architect or draftsperson. If you do not have plans and have a concept in mind we can refer you to designers and architects we have successfully worked closely with.



We can quote from fully completed plans or a draftsman’s sketch (limited measurements). If a list of internal selections (type of toilet suite, tapware etc) are not stated our quote will generally be based on provisional sum amounts which will be included in the quote (e.g. $5,000 supply of tiles). A firm quotation is preferred before signing of any contract to avoid variations to the contract in the future, and therefore avoiding clients overspending during the building process.



If you wish to build with us a Master Builders Association or HIA Limited contract will be drawn up and an original copy will be issued to all parties involved. Council will not approve applications until they have received all insurance certifications required. All council and certification requirements will be taken care of by us. Fees to all authorities will be mentioned in the quotation if they are included or not included.



Once all government approvals have been received, we will notify you and finalise any selections that were not made during the quoting stage or have changed. Choosing your internal items early in the process is recommended. This avoids expensive or impossible variations in the future. We will provide a list of our recommended suppliers.


Progress Claims

Progress claim stages and amounts are written in the contract (e.g. base stage, frame stage). If any variations have been made along the way we will invoice them when that work is completed with the next progress claim. The final amount is payable before handover.


Practical Completion

Practical completion means work has been completed but with some minor item defects or an item is not completed (i.e. door handle missing etc), but the building is fit for its intended use.



Handover of your property is carried out when works have reached completion or practical completion and all parties are satisfied that work is complete to the expected standard and all payments of progress claims and any variations have been paid in full. A handover folder will be provided including warranties, instruction manuals, trade and supplier contact list and any extra keys.


Warranties and Defects

At handover an inspection with the client will have been arranged, but sometimes small defects may be noticed once items have been used, opened and shut, defects in home building work should be notified in writing to the builder. If a purchased item is faulty then a supplier warranty call will be made & their individual warranty period will apply.
