Symcorp building process timeline for new homes

The Symcorp team are on hand to guide you through every step of your home building project, offering attention to detail, excellent customer service and open communication from the first building consultation right through to project completion.

Our tailored homebuilding process covers:

STEP 1 - Initial free consultation

At this first initial meeting we will discuss:

  • Your vision for your custom home, your style and your wishes.
  • The internal layout, number and types of rooms, and overall size.
  • Budget and finances.
  • Dates, timelines, requirements and the building process.

STEP 2 - House design, plans, & estimating

After the first initial meeting the next steps are:

  • Floor plan drafted
  • Internal and external designs
  • Scope of works is clear, taking into consideration many components such as finances/budget and overall house size and style.
  • This stage is critical to ensure we tailor your home to your budget.

STEP 3 - Building quote

After the design, plans, and estimating step we can now put together a quote:

  • This takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks.
  • The entire job is quoted based on the scope of works and specifications.
  • The complete quote is presented to you.
  • Possible amendments discussed, and quotation finalized with the exact price.

STEP 4 - Fixed price building contract

STEP 7 - Construction

  • Progress Payments at each stage

STEP 8 - Practical completion

Expert home building tips

What do you need? How do you want your new home to look, feel and work for you and your family? Do you have a plan? Have you explored a range of design options?

Stick to your budget

Decide as early as possible how much money you want to spend. Let us know so we can give you options within your price guide. Remember that your budet should cover everything that may arise from your building project, including items such as new window coverings, blinds and appliances if needed. Chat to your lender if you need finance guidance for your project.

What are your future plans?

We can look over your home and offer suggestions for the most effective solutions based on what your current and future goals and plans are.

Ensure you get a proper building contract

A written professional contract will spell out in exact specifics of the arrangements between you and Symcorp Builders which will describe your building project or renovation in detail as well as the responsibilities and obligations of all parties.

Invest in quality, not always price

Be careful not to jeopardise the standard of your home building project by compromising on the quality of materials and craftmanship.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well. We all want value for money and it can be tempting to go for the lowest priced builder, but you need to consider the implications if you choose a cheaper quote. Professional and experienced builders will help you select the best products and solutions within your budget. Make sure that when comparing builders that you are comparing 'like with like' for example, does each quote include the same level of inclusions, materials and products throughout the entire project?

If you need help with this we can walk your through what is included in your Symcorp new home build quotation.
