The Process to your Dream Home
We will meet with you to discuss your ideas, needs and dreams and establish exactly what stage you are at in pre-construction. If you do not have drawings yet we will assist with this. Be ready to talk about your lifestyle and what is important to you. Have a budget in mind so we can assist you to achieve a home you love within your specified budget.
We will estimate for you and present this to you at our office. You will also receive a guided tour of our online client portal which shows you how simple building with Watco Constructions is and gives you the peace of mind and reassurance you desire. If our preliminary estimate is within your budget the next step is for us to prepare final costings. As we are about to start spending money on your behalf there is a small fee for us to prepare detailed final costings and set up your online access to Co Construct.
We will arrange your working drawings to be completed so we can accurately price your project. You will receive your access to our client portal and start selecting choices on the selection sheet to assist us in preparing your final costings. The more choices that are made at this stage the better as this helps to minimise variations during construction.
We will meet with you to present our detailed proposal, specification and proposed construction schedule. We will go through the specification together in detail to ensure you are clear about what our proposal includes and any area where decisions are still to be made. Upon acceptance of the proposal a Master Builders fixed price contract is signed.
Upon receipt of your deposit we will arrange QBCC home warranty insurance, Q-Leave and the Energy Efficiency report and submit the project to our certifiers and council. This process takes approximately 2 weeks. Upon receipt of approvals we will finalise and set the project start date and construction schedule. During this period we ask our clients to finalise all their selections and decisions on Co Construct to ensure the smoothest possible building process.
You will follow the progress of your project online and also participate in weekly walk-throughs with the Supervisor or Builder. Communication will be primarily through Co Construct our online system to keep the project organised and streamlined.
Your home will be professionally cleaned and photographed and handed over by the Builder for you to move into and enjoy!
