Once we have assessed your block online and verified that it looks like our product could fit, We would like to meet you face to face. During this meeting we will see how our product can work for you and provide you the best option for your needs. Stage 1 includes a site inspection and a display visit if we have one available at the time.
WE COME TO 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. Click here to see what is involved in a site inspection.
YOU COME TO US: To understand our level of detail, inclusions and to see how we conduct business is for you to come see an already built Pod. It’s hard to gauge size and why we aren’t the cheapest solution out there until you see it for yourself.
Quote & Proposal
Once you’re happy to go ahead with the project, it’s time to pick your inclusions and finishes. This entails a visit to our Fyshwick office to choose items or letting us know of particular items you’d like to include. During this stage we get our plumber and electrician out to site as well as a surveyor so we have accurate quotes and plans to work from. There are a few signatures and financials we need, and then you’re on your way to getting your new secondary residence. All of which is outlined in your proposal in stage one.
Plans are drawn and submitted for Development Application
From the survey conducted in stage 2 we get accurate plans drawn of 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. This can take anywhere from 8 weeks to 30 weeks depending on each build, client circumstance, weather and more. Please note any custom suppliers, products etc will incur a delay and timeframes that fall over holiday periods will incur a delay. All of which will be explained in your proposal and project at the time.
