Building a new home is one of life’s biggest projects. Not many people do it more than once in their lives, and it can be a daunting process, particularly if you are not familiar with the process and all it involves. However, it can be incredibly rewarding to see your ideas take shape and become a reality.
At Integrity New Homes, we can take you from start to finish whether you have nothing but a block of land or if you have already gone through the stages of designing with an architect and have approved plans ready to go.
Here is a run down of how we do things and what is involved when building with us.
Get in touch with us via our website or phone us on 1300 886 793 and let us know what it is you are looking to achieve with your build. We’ll forward you a short survey to give us a starting point. From this, we can better understand your goals and expectations.
The only way to work through the Custom Build, Renovation or Extension process is to understand your needs, wants and aspirations. We’ll arrange a site visit and complete a FREE Project Assessment to help determine time-frame, budget, project vision and design. If applicable, we’ll also complete a FREE Site Report to address any site issues or environmental factors which may impact on what can and can’t be done on your block or with your existing home.
We do have a great range of standard designs in our library that may be a perfect fit for you. In some cases, they could be almost perfect but in need of a few customisations to suit your needs. You can come to us with your own Renovation and/or Custom Build plans; or if not, we can guide you in the process of creating plans to meet your individual requirements while considering specific site issues (ie maximizing views and breezes) with planning frameworks and cost effectiveness. The Renovation plans will also address any specific items which may need to be addressed as part of refreshing existing works.
When your concept and approximate budget have been determined we can initiate services as required to give accurate costing on these works. This may include services such as site surveys, architectural/drafting, engineering and general council requirements for your build.
During this process we gather all the information we need to design on your block including listing all the inclusions you desire for your design.
