WITH YOU AT THE FOREFRONT
 CUSTOM DESIGN AND BUILD

DURATION: 1-3 DAYS

  • Via website questionnaire
  • Via phone call appointment
  • Via email

Once you filled our questionnaire and book a call, we will ask you some design and construction questions to determine your building requirements.

DURATION: 1-2 WEEKS

We respond to your filled questionnaire within 48 hours. Our initial consultation is an opportunity to meet the Edina Building Group team assigned to your project. Here, you can ask questions regarding your proposed project or discuss all your requirements.

Our initial consultation is intended to advise you how we can build your project within budget and on time. We will require relevant documents to give you an indication of our expected ballpark figure for our design and build cost, which will also enable you to determine your project budget and time frame.

Our ballpark design and build cost will then be prepared and presented to you to ensure all specifications.

DURATION: 3-4 WEEKS

By this stage, you have decided that our expected ballpark design and build cost is within your budget, have considered us to turn your vision into reality, and are willing to proceed with the preparation of the working drawings.

You will then have to approve the Preliminary Building Agreement (PBA) including the preparation of working drawings such as architectural, engineering, and civil drawings, a number of consultant reports, and a land survey suitable for the construction of your project.

The payment for the PBA will only cover the cost of working drawings, relevant consultant reports, and land surveys if required. No construction deposit is required at this stage until working drawings are completed and the exact construction cost has been defined.

DURATION: 4-8 WEEKS

We will start preparing the drawings including architectural, engineering, and civil drawings with other consultant documents and reports once the Preliminary Building Agreement (PBA) is approved.

All required documents will be ready and submitted to the Registered Building Surveyors (RBS) to obtain a building permit.

DURATION: 2-3 WEEKS

You will be provided with a detailed fixed-price construction and project management proposal once drawings are completed. This paid service includes a complete schedule and an estimated cost breakdown of the construction program. Please note that it is a minimum of 50 pages in length, detailing everything you need to know in your project. Any quote or tender less than this, means something is missing.

The associate cost is to be paid in advance to produce an accurate and detailed fixed-price proposal. This amount will be deducted from your first progress payment once the construction contract has been awarded.

DURATION: 2-4 WEEKS

We will prepare the standard building contract (HIA, MBAV, AS) with other required documents once drawings and the final tender proposal price are finalised.

A construction meeting will be arranged with you once all required documents are signed. The warranty insurance certificate for your project will be issued when we receive your finance approval with a request for a 5% deposit of the total contract price.

DURATION: 1-2 WEEKS

We will give you full access to our online project management system for the completion of your selections, price viewing and adjustments, and approval of variations (if any).

You will also have a consultation with our design and colour consultant, and a showroom consultation with our suppliers at this stage.

DURATION: AS PER AGREED PROGRAM OF 5-15 MONTHS

You will have regular updates and meetings with your project manager and site supervisor once construction starts.

For transparency, you can access all your project information during construction and critical stage inspections on our online project management system.

DURATION: 1-3 DAYS

We will walk you through the occupancy permit and project handover process. We will liaise with the council and building surveyors for an occupation certificate for your project, and prepare all job-specific documentation for your records. Then, a project meeting with you will happen where we hand over the manual and present the keys to your new home.

DURATION: 12-24 WEEKS

You will have a 180 day maintenance period to address concerns you may have. This will involve access to our trades and suppliers to ensure your home is well maintained. We will also provide you with regular emails, updating you with what’s required in certain stages after your handover day. We will also provide you with a ten-year structural warranty for your new home.
