Constructive Homes quality home renovations service follows a well-organized and planned process to ensure that your house renovation proceeds smoothly with minimal disruptions or unwanted costs and surprises.
Did you know? A lot of complications and disputes arise during the building process in relation to mistakes being made on selections. This causes problems between contractors, builders and clients. Our Online Client Portal will eliminate 100% of errors, giving you complete reassurance.
This involves a meeting with you, in the comfort of your home to discuss how our process is different from others.
During this meeting we'll discuss and show you how we can get your project built within budget and on time, saving you thousands of dollars in the process.
Upon mutual agreement we return back to site and sit down with you to discuss your visions and needs.
We'll show you what your most cost effective options are. We'll share incredible ideas to maximise your space and your budget, without over capitalising your property. Our Initial Cost Indication Proposal is then prepared and presented back to you along with a selection of specifications.
These are prepared based around our initial discussions.
Your designs begin by sitting down together with us and the Building Designer. It's through close collaboration on design and documentation that we can work within your budget constraints to ensure that the project actually gets under way. You are involved and informed every step of the way and Preliminary Designs are presented with the Constructive Homes Consultation. From our vast experience, we can offer you a rough price guide on construction costs.
This consultation provides us an opportunity to cost the design and ascertain an approximate build cost to ensure that estimates align with your budget.
This part of the process will be carried out in conjunction with the Preliminary Drawings stage and involves liaising with our preferred Building Certifier and Town Planning Consultants. We proactively liaise with these consultants and amend drawings as necessary to obtain Building Approval promptly and efficiently. When you are completely happy, we will collate an estimate of costs so that you can make a decision on the design. You will also receive a guided tour of our online client portal which shows you how easy it is to renovate with us.
These drawings are created by the Building Designer so that we can accurately price your project. Designers then further detail and document the Preliminary Designs and turn them into Construction Drawings.
This is where we detail a specification list to suit your renovation, enabling us to calculate a Fixed Price Construction Tender. You can rest easy knowing that there won't be any hidden costs further down the track. Each thorough quotation includes expected overall costs and inclusions/exclusions. This comprehensive presentation enables you to make a calculated decision based around facts.
With working drawings complete and engineering drawings finalised, we now make application for Building Approval.
Having previously liaised with the Building Certifier, building approval should be obtained. Once issued, we proceed to construction.
Now for the most exciting part! Construction begins within the proposed timeline and in accordance with contract and specification documents.
The journey from concept to completion will be as seamless as possible, knowing that our seasoned, experienced team are with you all the way. We use a secure online project management tool to give you access to your project's selections, schedules, communications and budgets 24 hours a day.
Finally, construction is complete and handover has arrived, but this isn't the end of the journey. Constructive Homes carry out a quality check to ensure all work is to our high standards of finish.
We engage specialist building inspectors to carry out a handover report, to give you peace of mind your new home is defect free. Before handing the keys over to clients we make sure you are 100% satisfied. We provide a 7-year structural warranty and will keep in touch with you to ensure that you love your custom renovation.
