Where to begin...
THE DESIGN & BUILD
We’re here to make the design and build
process simple and easy to navigate. Our
team has developed in-house systems that
will have you feeling well informed and comfortable at every step.
While we do work with clients who have
had plans drawn prior to meeting with us, our preference is to work alongside our clients during the design phase so we
can advise practical and economical construction methodologies, we feel it is important to understand the project and design philosophy so we can easily meet
the expectations of the design
brief and project budget.
We provide transparent pricing which
gives our clients peace of mind that we
are providing exceptional value for investment.
We’ve found the best way to understand your vision is to meet with you on your property to gain an insight into the project.
Company owner Johnny Calley will talk with you and help you to understand the journey you are beginning.
No two sites are the same and we need to assess key factors that could impact the design process and project budget.
Experience and knowledge allow us to guide you through the process and acquire important information from you.
Important points to consider and discuss at this stage are:
Your intended budget, Time frames
Site conditions, contours, geotechnical status, District or City plan requirements
Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
Prevailing wind directions
North facing elevations to maximise sunlight
Driveway location and garaging
Any long-term maintenance issues
Sustainable building methods and product options.

After the initial site visit and the design briefing, we will have gathered enough information to confidently begin designing your new home.
The design process is an exciting phase beginning with the drawing and presentation of the first concept plans.
We take as much time as you need to go through the concept plans in fine detail to ensure you completely understand and are happy with the design and how it works for you on your site.
Alterations and modifications can easily be made at this stage and we will continue to work with you until we have plans that perfectly fulfill your vision.
PRE CONSENT &
Once the concept plans have been confirmed, together we will go through room by room and document your desired finish. This process covers everything from doors to TVs – this is everything you want from your home. Product selection is a big task with so many quality products available to choose from and we have experience and expertise in this area so can assist
and guide you.
Upon confirmation of finishes, the plans are priced officially for the building contract then presented to the Council to obtain
the building consent. We can then agree
a start date and from there we will
produce a timeline for the project.
We encourage you to stay involved during the build. Onsite meetings and regular visits help you stay informed – and it’s exciting to watch the progress. At any time during the build process if there is anything you are unsure of or you want to add or alter,
we are there to offer guidance, support
and expert advice.
Our online project management program allows you to track progress from your office desk, holiday overseas or smartphone.
Once construction is complete and the last detail has been attended to, our final job is to sign the 10 year Master Build guarantee and hand you the keys.
All you have to do is pop the champagne and look to a very bright future in your brand-new home.
