Residential and Commercial Builders Auckland – Our Process
Whether you are interested in new builds or house extensions in Auckland, we assure you of an unmatched experience from start to finish.
Here’s a brief outline of the different stages of your construction project. Although every project is unique and presents its own set of challenges, we strive to follow this five-step process to ensure the timely completion of your project.
Step 1 – Initial Consultation
We begin with an in-home consultation to discuss your project and understand your requirements in detail. We will ask lots of questions and listen to your ideas carefully, and look at any drawings or plans you might already have. If you don’t have any plans, fret not, for we will arrange this for you by recommending some of the best architects in Auckland that we work with closely.
We want to build a home that’s unique to your family, your lifestyle and your taste. So we will talk about things that are important to you and your family and what you want to achieve! This is a great opportunity to explain your vision and any specific features you may want to include in your construction project.
Our builders in Auckland Central will explain what consent will be needed to begin your project and explain in detail how we work at Everlong Construction. We will also seek to understand your budget and even provide details about our financing programme.
Step 2 – Initial Design Concept Plan
The next step is to take your ideas and transform them into concept drawings. This may not be necessary if you already have a concept plan or construction consent.
If you do need a plan, then we will have a good idea about your vision and requirements after the initial consultation. At this stage, we will sign an Initial Design and Drawings Contract where we will outline the timeline and estimate costs.
Once the initial documents are signed off, we are happy to refer an architect or draftsperson to for your project. Our builders in Auckland will work with you and the architect to discuss your ideas and vision. Once the chosen architect is engaged and designs the initial concept plan, you will have a better understanding of how your dream home, extension or renovation will look like.
Whether it’s an architect recommended by our certified builders NZ or an architect of your choice, we will work with you and the architect throughout the design phase so all three parties have a mutual understanding of the project.
The initial concept plan created by the architect will include a site plan and elevations as well as proposed and current floor plans. The plans may be revised a couple of times before we arrive at the final layout.
Step 3 – Cost Estimate
Your new home is a significant investment. Naturally, you want to know how much it will cost to bring your design to life.
Once you like the concept drawings, our new home builders in Auckland will work out a cost estimate for the project and present it to you. You will have a clear picture of the costs and how much you will have to set aside for the project and whether it meets your budget. If the cost estimate does not work for your budget, we can look for ways to adjust the design to suit your budget.
At this stage, we’ll also talk about other resources or building consent requirements and any other procedural stuff and paperwork that needs to be taken care of.
Step 4 – Detailed Drawings and Consent
Once you have approved the final plan, the architect will work on creating detail drawings.
Our builders in Auckland Central will also communicate with the council and get in touch with engineers and surveyors if necessary to have your project approved at the earliest.
Once you sign off the detailed drawings, the architect will submit the plans, specifications and construction drawings with your local council.
Step 5 – Fixed Price Quote
Now that your plans have been sent to the local council for consent, it’s time to work out a fixed price quote and sign your building contract. The quote establishes your actual investment.
Our certified builders NZ will provide details about all the inclusions for the price, so you know what you’re getting. If there are some variable features that we haven’t been able to quote for (if you have not chosen your kitchen or shower or the tiles you want, for instance), we will clearly specify those.
As your new build, extension or renovation project progresses and if there are any unplanned or unexpected changes that may affect your budget, or you request a change, we will promptly notify of the change in pricing and timelines so you can make an informed decision appropriately.
Step 6 – Signing the Contract
Once we have agreed on the fixed price/lump sum quote, it’s time to go through the paperwork to make sure everything is covered. It’s a standard contract based on industry norms, so you won’t come across any surprises.
The contract is easy to understand without any jargon. However, should you need any explanation or clarification, our home extensions team in Auckland would be happy to assist.
Next, we’ll agree on the likely start date and prepare for the construction process.
Step 7 – Construction Begins
Once the Building Consent documents arrive from the local council, we will begin to construct your dream home, extension or renovation based on the agreed start date.
Communication is an important part of the construction process. We will assign a project manager who will manage the entire project and liaise with contractors, council, vendors and tradesmen.
Step 8 – Project Completion
The building is ready, you’ve made the payment, the house has been thoroughly cleaned and the keys have been handed over to you. Now it’s time to move into your new home or take over your renovation or extension.
