Design & Build
August 9, 2019
We at Renovation Builders take our role of being a trusted advisor to our clients very seriously. We manage the entire project from concept, design plans, initial costing, building consent approval, house plans and final quote to the build, regular client meetings and code of compliance.
The design work of the renovation or new build project is crucial to the smooth execution of the project and we can work with either your architectural designer or recommend one. We believe that a good relationship and collaboration between the client, draughting firm and us is critical to the success of the project. Even when we recommend the architect, our client deals directly with them and we do not take a commission or make money even behind the scene as eventually we and the designer work in the best interest of the client.
Our design build process is focused on ensuring that the client, architect, builder and related trades all work together to deliver the agreed outcomes on-budget on-time. Being certified builders, we are able to resolve any building design issues or unforeseen situations with our practical building knowledge. The process can be summarised in 5 steps:
1.Introduction: We believe that the building process is all about relationships. We do an initial onsite meeting to get to know you and to understand the vision for your home.
2.Concept Plans: We introduce you to our designers to get the concept plans drawn up. Working with the designers, we make sure the plans are buildable throughout the whole journey from concept to completion. Once the concept plans are signed off we provide an initial build estimate so you have an idea of what the project will cost.
3. Working Drawings: The concept plans are then finalised with all the detail so they can be submitted to Council.
4. Pricing: While the working drawings are being processed through Council we work on providing a formal estimate for the project.
5. Council Consent: The working drawings are then processed through Council to gain building consent. After the plans are stamped by council we get to work!
