One of the most daunting aspects of any major renovation project is knowing where, when and how to start your build without overlooking crucial elements. We realise that every renovation process/project is different and every client has a different set of needs. That’s why we’ve put together these steps to building success to ensure a smooth project for you from the very start to the final completion.

Step 1. Initial contact

Our first step will be a phone call to follow up your enquiry. The purpose of the call will be to acquaint ourselves.  To have a discussion around your wants and needs regarding your building project to make sure we can offer the service you require. And to arrange a time and place convenient for us to meet for a more in-depth discussion.

Let’s talk about what’s important to you and your family – items that reflect your values and your preferred way of living. We want to get a feel for your aspirations and expectations and we want you to get a feel for how we can help you take your dreams and turn them into your home. This will involve you discussing time frames and the level of investment you want to make so we understand from design stage through to completion your budget expectations.

This is the evolution stage!  One of the most important stages.
A good design process  is key to a successful project. Your design will evolve over a period of time during which you and your designer discuss, digest, think and rework ideas until the best solution is arrived at .We like to be interactive during this stage with you and the designer as our years of practical experience, knowledge of what has and hasn’t worked in the past can often help shape your concept drawings.

You may want to consider using sustainable building features at this concept stage making your home more eco-friendly and energy efficient saving you long term energy costs whilst adding value to your home? We can help you with ideas.

Before we move on to the next stage we will work with you until you are satisfied that the concept drawings in cooperate all the features, detail and style that you have shared with us  making sure your home fits  you perfectly.
