We would like to meet you face to face so we can see how we can serve you and provide you the best option for your needs. Stage 1 includes a site inspection and a display visit.
SEE YOU: We are required to conduct a full site visit to make sure of any potential site issues such as levels, trees and current buildings on the site. This is a free service.
SEE US: We believe that to understand our level of detail, inclusions and way we conduct business is for you to come and see an already built Pod. It’s hard to gage size and why we aren’t the cheapest solution out there until you see it for yourself.
After these two processes are complete our design team will come back to you with a final costing and evaluation of your new secondary residence.
Client confirmation and finalise project budget
Once you’re happy to go ahead with the project, it’s time to pick your inclusions and finishes. This might entail coming to our office to pick or going to our supplier. There are a few signatures and financials we need to get, and then you’re on your way to getting your new secondary residence. All which is outlines in your fee proposal in stage one.
Plans are drawn and submitted for Development Application
We survey your block and get accurate plans drawn on your site and make sure you’re 100% happy with the layout and positioning prior to submission. We then handle the whole process of council approvals, set back requirements and design.
Once you give us the sign off, we submit the Development Application (DA), then it’s a waiting game.
It takes on average 8 weeks to get sign off approval for the DA.
DA and Building Approval complete
We will recieve notification that DA has been approved, from here it is all systems go.
Our team will onboard the building certifier in order to receive a BA, get a start date and then we are ready to proceed to the next stage.
This process only takes on average a week.
This is where it gets really exciting. Construction will take place on your block and the site will be prepared.
1st week- Site prep, 2nd week- Footings and floor frame, 3rd week- Wall framing and roof, 4th & 5th week- Lockup stage, a 6th week- Kitchen & laundry installed plus waterproofing, tiling and painting, 7th week- Beginning stages of Fit off, 8th week- Final fit off.
The process is then complete and certificates created plus hand over.
(all subject to public holidays and weather)
Once construction is complete we will be happy to hand over the Pod keys to you. This will come with all included warranties, product information and certificates.
We give you a copy of your plans and approvals as well as a 180-day builder defect period.
We will follow up with you to make sure you’re continuously happy with your new Pod.
