Our Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Need Plans?

    If the work is just cosmetic and no structural alterations are needed then plans are not required. This would apply mainly to bathroom, laundry and kitchen makeovers. However, other work like decks, extensions, house raises, internal or external wall modifications, plans will be required. If you already have plans drawn up, we can quote off those or if you need plans we can arrange them through our building designer, along with engineers plans and soil tests, if required. When obtaining quotes from different builders you also need plans so that everyone is quoting apples for apples.

  • How long will it take to complete my construction project?

    Every project is different with some being much more involved and complicated than others. A bathroom could take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks, depending on size. A house raise and build under could be anywhere from 3 to 12 months.

  • Will I have to move out of my home during construction?

    This will depend on the scope of work. With a whole house renovation or house raise and build under it will be necessary to move out while work is being carried out due to safety. Smaller projects like bathroom, laundry or kitchen renovations do not usually require that you move out of your home.

  • Do you handle certification?

    Yes, we handle all aspects of the approval process. Once the quote has been accepted, we submit plans to the certifiers on your behalf. Approved plans can only be released to the builder once the QBCC insurance and QLeave Levy (if works are over $150,000) have been paid, which ACC does once your deposit has been received.

  • Who do we deal with throughout the build?

    You will deal directly with the builder at all times. You will have his mobile number so can contact him anytime throughout the build and can feel safe knowing that if you have a query it will be answered promptly. In addition, you can email any queries directly through to the office.

    We only mention it because not every builder is! It is easy to be drawn in by a too good to be true quote and a host of fluffy promises from a builder who is not qualified. Locate the licence or look somewhere else.
