Step 1: Consult With a building Designer

Are you ready for the ride of building your new home? In this phase, it is all about investigating, exploring and planning. This is where we work with you to understand your ideas and requirements to develop a design brief prior to providing you with a custom-designed concept plan specific to your needs.

Why would you consult a building designer at CWC? Well…

  • we know design & construction
  • we understand what is (& isn’t) feasible
  • we know regulations & requirements
  • we can offer cost-effective alternatives yet still achieve the same desired outcome.

Step 2: Council Application & Approval

So, you have the design for your home. What’s next?

In Step 2, CWC ensures that all the boxes are ticked to make an application to Council for approval. This involves the preparation of architectural and construction plans, as well as all documentation required for Council to assess the development (which may include a BASIX Certificate, Thermal Comfort Assessment and Bushfire Report).

Because we live and breathe the rules and regulations, CWC can make sure everything is covered and liaise with Council, on your behalf, which means you can breathe easy.

Step 3: Contract with a Builder

Yes! You have Council approval covered! In Step 3, CWC can help to navigate the process of contracting a Builder for your project. We can prepare a detailed Building Specification report that outlines the scope and requirements for the build and make arrangements for your preferred builders to provide a written quotation based on those requirements. CWC will liaise with those builders, and also provide a written comparison of the quotes for you to consider when making your final decision.

Again, we work with you to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed choice based on the specifics of your project.

Step 4: Construction

Woohoo – you’ve reached construction stage! At CWC, we love seeing an idea come to life, so we can help project manage the construction of your home. With this phase, we take an active role in supervising the build, and will prepare a project schedule in consult with your builder, as well as liaising with external consultants, suppliers and trades to ensure the project is on track.

We attend regular site meetings and conduct inspections, as well as holding regular site meetings and inspections as well as progress meetings with you to review the construction. CWC can also assist in providing a full ancillary service of interior design to add those personal touches to your custom design.
