What is the new home build process?

Beginning a big project like building a new home takes a significant amount of planning and organisation. There are literally hundreds of choices to make during the building processes and it can sometimes become overwhelming. Here you can find the new home process broken down by our builders into an easy to understand building process timeline from start to finish:

Initial free consultation

Designed to your budget and be flexible, the Free Consultation process at your home is aimed to provide you with all the basics and explain the process with drafting and council approval, we work with you to design the project and outline our management process plus everything along the way. Week 1

Finance review

In order to determine your budget you will need to put together a finance plan for your purchasing potential.  This includes borrowing from lenders as well as making sure your financial structure can cover the new building process from concept to completion. Week 2

Drafting & plans

Taking into account the needs and requirements of your family or lifestyle as highlighted in the initial consultation, Symcorp can customise your plan specific to your to your requirements. After the first initial meeting the next steps include: drafting a floor plan, internal and external designs and establishing a clear scope of work. This stage is critical to ensure we tailor your renovated home to your budget. Week 6

Certification & council

As with any sort of major construction, you must have council approval and a full set of certified plans to commence any project. Symcorp can streamline the entire process, step by step, to ensure everything is council certified and approved before building commences. Week 8

After the design, plans and estimating stages we will present a quote to you within approximately 2 to 3 weeks, allowing for possible amendments to be discussed, and then finalising the quote with an exact price. Week 9

Pre-construction meeting

You will be introduced to your Site Supervisor/Project Manager who will be on site managing the renovation, they will be able to answer any questions about the new home or knock-down/rebuild process. Week 9
