Getting Plans Drawn

Choose a good architect that will encourage you to talk about what you like, and what you and your family need from your new home.   Collect ideas from magazines, brochures and websites, these will help you describe what you like.  Think ahead, to what your family will need in the future.

Getting Consents

 

Managing the Building Process

You may want to do this yourself, but unless you have been involved before, it is likely that your Architect will do this on your behalf.  If you do want to be more involved, clients can be kept in the picture with regular scheduled meetings.  These can help with client questions and concerns before they arise, and keep the momentum of the project running smoothly.  If you want to have meetings with our construction team, just ask.
 
Residential construction projects have a ten year Master Build Guarantee included in the price.  This gets signed off at the end of the construction period, and sent to the home owner by Master Build Services.
 
Final Code of Compliance Sign-off on the project by Council is the responsibility of the owner or their agent (Architect or Consultant).  We can help with this if requested.
