What made Buildtech homes stand out for us. was the first impression, the presentation of the quote, the explanation of the process of what was involved in the actual construction.

Our Knock-Down Rebuild Process

Whether you are a first home buyer, upsizing to accommodate your growing family or downsizing to retire, building a home is one of the biggest and most exciting purchase decisions you can make in your lifetime. It’s not every day you get to experience the excitement of seeing your dream home come to life.

At Buildtech Homes we’re here to ensure you enjoy the experience, and are with you every step of the way.

We believe in being clear and transparent about the process ahead of you, and this guide will step you through every stage of the entire building process.

1

First point of contact

The first step towards getting started is a phone consultation to discuss your building requirements, here we will ask you a number of questions to determine what you require to build your dream home. If you have the plans for the existing dwelling that’s on the block, we will ask you to send these over for an assessment. If you don’t have access to the plans, we can help guide you in the direction of where to obtain them, or we may need to schedule a Site Assessment to determine the demolition needs involved.

Meet Luke the owner

Your next step will be to book in a sit-down consultation with Luke the owner of Buildtech Homes and our in-house Draftsperson who will be working side by side throughout the whole design period. This consists of a one-hour consultation where you will discuss your wish list, special requirements, block details and budget. Here we can help guide you on possible demolition costs to factor into the overall project too.

We have a range of house plans to get you started on your new dream home, however as every block and lifestyle is different, we can adapt one of our house plans or custom design something to suit your property and needs.

Once you have signed-off on the final floor plans, we will forward them to the applicable regulatory bodies such as BASIX, local water authority, mine subsidence board, estate developer approval, etc.

Once this is complete, we will present your tender to you and answer all your questions.

Following your approval at the tender presentation, we will invite you to place your deposit so we can progress to the pre-construction phase.
