Our Process

a

Step 1: First Appointment

Your design consultant visits you for a 1-2 hour meeting.

What do WE do?

  • Analyse your existing home, and discuss your needs, goals and preferences.
  • Bounce some design ideas off you, and discuss the associated costs.

What do YOU do?

  • The more you can tell them, the better.
  • Have a few sketches and a budget ready.

Step 2: Design Measure

Your design consultant visits again to measure up & refine your ideas.

What do WE do?

  • Measure and photograph your home.
  • Perform a comprehensive audit, covering materials required, position of sewer lines, easements, access points, set-backs, asbestos, etc.
  • Fine tune your plan and ideas.

What do YOU do?

  • Prepare a scrapbook for this meeting. Photos & magazine clippings are invaluable, and it’s also very helpful if you know what style you’re after (e.g. Traditional? Modern? A mix of both?)

Step 3: Drawing your plans

We draw the plans for your proposed renovation & prepare your Preliminary Plans Agreement (PPA).

What do WE do?

  • Prepare a contour survey if required.
  • Draw a plan of your existing home.
  • Draw plans for your proposed renovation.
  • Prepare costings.
  • Prepare coloured perspective drawings (internal and external).
  • Prepare Preliminary Plans Agreement (PPA) drawings and documentation.

What do YOU do?

  • The more you can tell them, the better.

Step 4: PPA Meeting

Your design consultant visits to discuss the Preliminary Plans Agreement (PPA) drawings and documentation.

What do WE do?

  • Present your renovation floor plans for approval.
  • Present your colour perspective drawings for approval (internal and external, including wet areas such as bathrooms).
  • Present fixed price costings.
  • Provide details all inclusions and exclusions.

What do YOU do?

  • Look at your plans and drawings.
  • Consider the price and inclusions.
  • Ask lots of questions.
  • If you’re happy with everything, sign off on the PPA plans.

Step 5: Check Measure

Your design consultant visits to discuss the Preliminary Plans Agreement (PPA) drawings and documentation.

What do WE do?

  • Perform a thorough inspection to ensure that everything in the PPA drawings can be built and nothing has been missed.
  • Perform a thorough construction and structural inspection (so there are no surprises after contract). This includes photos, notes and measurements of all areas, including in the roof and under the house.
  • Take photos of skirting boards, cornices, mouldings, bricks, gutters, roof tiles, existing structures, etc., to ensure all new materials match.

What do YOU do?

  • Sign the contract

Step 6: Approval

We get all the necessary approvals (council, etc.).

What do WE do?

  • Submit applications for all the necessary approvals, including building license, building permits and water corporation approvals.

What do YOU do?

  • Nothing!

Step 7: Pre-start

Choose your colours, selections and upgrades.

What do WE do?

  • Walk you through your colour and selection options in our showroom.
  • Offer guidance on the latest trends and ‘must haves’.
  • Price any upgrades.
  • Amend plans and addenda with any changes, and supply final versions for your approval.
  • Instruct our scheduling department to order materials and start construction.

What do YOU do?

  • This is the exciting part for you! You visit our showroom and pick your colours and selections, and choose any upgrades. (E.g. Stone bench-tops instead of Laminex?)
  • Sign off on final plans and addenda.

TIP: By signing off quickly, you enable a faster start on construction.

Step 8: Construction

This is where you start to see things happen.

What do WE do?

  • Get our professional tradespeople to complete your renovation, as planned, to budget, and with fixed start and end dates.
  • Minimise disruption to your day-to-day life, so you can continue living in your home while we work.

What do YOU do?

  • Nothing!
