We meet you on site to discuss the possibilities for your new home and explain the building process. By meeting on site, we can make a preliminary assessment of your land characteristics such as slope, orientation, views and planning requirements.
DESIGN AND ESTIMATION
We discuss your vision and recommend the architect that is best suited to your needs, then work as a team to achieve the best design. If you already have your own plans, we can review them with you. At this stage, we prepare a complimentary estimate of costs for your consideration.
We prepare a Preliminary Agreement, which includes a detailed Cost Analysis based on the initial design and your requirements (for a modest fee). This is yours to keep.
We prepare the Master Builders contract for you to sign, then arrange the start and completion date. Once signed, we provide a construction programme and a payment schedule for you to review and confirm.
Working with our Project Manager, you make the relevant selections required for the start of construction. We take you through the options for fixtures and finishes to incorporate your design and lifestyle requirements into your home. When you are satisfied with the design, we finalise the documentation for construction, including working drawings, engineering design, energy assessments and planning approvals.
Once building consents are approved, we start the build as per the construction programme. The Project Manager oversees construction to ensure our material and workmanship standards are met. Once building has commenced, weekly client meetings are held on site with the Project Manager to discuss progress.
We want you to love your new home. Before we handover the keys, we complete a final walkthrough together to rectify anything that needs attention, to ensure you are happy with all aspects. Once completed, a final inspection is booked through the Council and Code of Compliance documents are collected, submitted, and passed. You will then be the proud owner of a new Lewis Build home.
Our commitment to you doesn’t finish when we hand over the keys. We attend to maintenance issues after 90 days, and again after one year of completion of the build. We want to make sure your house is at its highest quality after cycling through all four seasons.
