For us, the customer is "king". We strive to provide our customers with a high level of service with a minimum of fuss. As an established builder our reputation is very important to us. Much our work is gained from the recommendations of previous clients. Our goal is simple: your project completed to a high standard, on time and on budget. .
To achieve the best possible outcome for your home addition we believe good communication is the critical. This process starts from the initial on site consultation by director David Porter to discuss your ideas. It continues through our in-house design process, the development approval and of course, during the build.
During the building phase we take the time to discuss the progress of the works. We encourage your questions.
As both a builder and designer we can present you with different design options to blend your concept and budget with our design expertise.
A standard building process for an addition that requires development approval may include the following steps:
Our trades people are highly qualified and licensed in their chosen field. Many have worked with us for over ten years. As members of our team they share our companies' continued commitment to quality. The quality of our work is not just a result of a passionate trade team, but our use of quality materials throughout the building process.
Quality control inspections are carried out at all critical stages of the works as standard practice. Compliance with the relevant codes and standards, the buildings' specification and the owner selections are checked.
The safety of our customer, the public and our team members are paramount to us. Before starting your project we will plan to minimise your disruption and inconvenience. Where possible the impact of the works on the customer will be minimised by using alternative access to your property and separating your existing living areas from the new works. Dust screens, window and floor protection are some of the strategies used.
During the building phase the site is kept clean. Rubbish is collected and contained in skips where possible. Materials are stockpiled and covered. This not only makes the site a safer place but helps to make the building process more efficient and create enjoyable work environment.
The requirements of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 form the basis of our team's safety culture.
Our designs exceed the requirement of the Building Sustainability Index (BASIX), they can incorporate simple passive elements such as high R value insulation, building orientation use of thermal mass and eaves shading. Active sustainable measure may include water recycling, energy efficient electrical fittings,
After getting the design and finish of your addition right it only makes sense to keep it that way for as long as possible. Proven, durable materials and finishes are used to keep your investment looking good for years to come.
We use and recommend Dulux paints and Colourbond metal roofing. Framing timbers are at least H2 treated against termite attack. External fasteners are either galvanised or stainless steel. Our decking hardwoods have a high durability class rating.
As part of our service we can advise you for the ongoing maintenance of your house.
We pride ourselves in staying up to date with the latest materials and innovations in the building Industry. New building products that meet the requirements of Building Code of Australia can reduce the building's operating costs, minimise maintenance and increase its amenity.
Improved building techniques can reduce building costs while enhancing its durability
