Are you looking for a bespoke experience when it comes to your renovations or extensions? Then look no further than Immaculate Homes! Our team has over 35 years experience working with local councils and within the industry, and pride ourselves on our approachability and professionalism.
The process for building a home is one that is tailored exclusively to each of our clients and their requirements. From the design stage, to obtaining council approval, the installation of your joinery, fittings and fixtures, interior design and everything in between, you can be assured that our work is nothing but the highest quality.
Just as we are all unique, so is your project with Immaculate Homes and each step of the process is tailored to you. To ensure each goal is achieved it is important to ensure that no detail is overlooked. With all that in mind, to help make the process a little easier to understand, we have detailed below what is involved when working with Immaculate Homes.
The first stage of any new project is to start to bring your ideas to fruition. The research phase is perhaps one of the most exciting phases of any home project, as it is the realisation that your home renovation dreams are about to be brought to life!
You want an Immaculate Home and you deserve one. The next step is to make contact with us, which couldn’t be easier. Submitting an online enquiry via a contact form is one way and calling us on 02 9634 1202 is another.
When submitting an online enquiry and depending on your preferred choice of communication, we will either call or email you back to arrange a suitable time to discuss your project in further detail.
We love talking about all things homes. Understanding what you love about your current home and what you would like to see in your new Immaculate Home is what we aim to achieve in this step. Sharing your ideas, dreams, vision boards and design requirements will help our design team be prepared for your first meeting.
Providing us with whatever information you have at the initial enquiry phase will help us ensure the process is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
This meeting is best done at your home as it allows us to get both spatial and graphical understanding of the property and share our ideas for what works best.
After our initial consultation, the next step is creating your concept design. We will undertake a detailed house measure to get your existing property mapped out correctly. From here, our team of architects, designers and builders will work together to place your design requirements onto the plans for ready for our first design presentation with you.
After presenting the floor plan and a 3D perspective and ensuring you are happy with the design, we then work on providing you with a detailed tender costing including all aspects of the project from design approval right through to the construction completion.
This stage can take between 7-10 days to prepare.
The next stage is getting the design documentation ready for planning submission and approval. Planning approval can be either through the traditional Development Application to Council or through our Private certifier as a Complying Development Certificate (CDC). Both land and proposed building design restrictions can impact the development approval process and these details will have been discussed with you during the design phase of your project.
We also organise and arrange for the design documentation from the relevant external consultants such as the Fire, Hydraulic & Structural Engineers and Energy Efficiency which will provide greater detail to our floor plans and elevations in preparation for the planning submission. Planning approval from submission can take between 3-4 weeks for a CDC or 8-16 weeks for a DA depending on your local council.
Once formal approvals are in hand, the structural engineer will undertake a site inspection and complete the structural design of the project whilst we finalise the contract specifications and contract ready for signing. This will include any special conditions which have arisen during the approval process and will ensure our commitment to providing a fixed price contract.
During this phase we love to show off our work and welcome working together to bring your dream home to life!
Once construction commences, a Site Supervisor will be appointed to oversee your project. The Site Supervisor is here to inspect the home at each critical stage, will clarify any details of the build that require explaining, and will resolve any design matters that may arise. The Site Supervisor will be your main point of contact throughout this phase, and will be here to ensure that all tasks are completed correctly and within time frame and budget.
Your Immaculate Home is a unique project and the construction timeline will be dependent on the nature and scope of your build.
The construction may have ended but this is just the beginning, as you now get to enjoy your Immaculate Home with family and friends.
