House Builders Whangarei: Design and Build
Design and build mixes disciplines from architectural design, engineering, trade skills and master builders, leaving customers with the best outcome.
With Design and Build, you’ve got professionals working under one roof, working towards the same goal to build you a home.
The success of any project relies on the commitment and ambition of all parties, including the new home owner and the Whangarei home builder.
When everyone comes together, it makes every aspect of the design and build possible and crucially ensures it is realised.
Choosing the Right Design and Build Team for your Whangarei Project
The first, and arguably most crucial step as a homeowner is figuring out who to team up with for your home and build project. If you’re in Whangarei, it’s good to find a design and build contractor with a Master Builder certification.
In selecting your Whangarei home builder, you must review and consider potential design and build contractors based on their experience, portfolio of built homes and their project management approach. You will want a home builder that understands your needs and the scope of your budget.
Cost will always affect and play a part in your decision making. That is a given. Naturally, you may veer towards the home builder that offers the lowest cost, but this is not always wise. You must consider the scale of your project and whether the low-cost builder is capable of mounting and managing such a project. Are they also offering a fixed price design and build quote.
One of the deciding factors to consider is whether the local home builder can give you high-quality design-build results under the agreed timeframe.
As soon as your design-build team has been selected, this will be followed by a series of detailed meetings about your vision and what you desire for your home. Your home builder will start with the important questions: What do you want your home to look like? How big is it? Where is it located? What is the terrain type? Are there legal restrictions in the area? More importantly, how much will everything cost?
With so many questions we would always recommend regular meetings, whether via phone in person or skype, so that the various questions you will have are met by your homebuilder.
The Careful Planning of your new Home build
During this phase, the design and build team will assess the needs of the project as a whole. A lot of broad strokes here. Your The designer and project manager will work together to evaluate all potential costs and challenges. They will handle all specifications and measurements; these include design plans, utility systems, cost estimates, manpower required and project schedules that must be locked and set before any work on the project can begin.
As with any home building project, once the design has been established and approved, many build phases tend to overlap, the homebuilder can have multiple experts working together to get things going in an efficient manner.
Construction at Full Speed
Design and build construction is all about teamwork. It’s mainly all hands on deck at this phase. Once the construction team is onsite, or working offsite if a transportable home, you can trust your builder to oversee the daily logistics and build process.
An experienced home builder will resolve most onsite issues for you reducing any incidents and minimise any change orders with the specifications and raw materials. Moreover, your home builder project manager, remains your single point of contact between architects, suppliers, engineers, tradesmen and even the local council.
The Last Leg of the Build
Once your home has been carefully constructed, the design and build team will give you an overall assessment of the project which includes contracts, documentation work and forms in its entirety. Any concerns you have about the final result will be addressed as the home nears completion.
Now for the fun part – your Whangarei homebuilder hands over the keys to your new home.
