Design Process

 

Our design and construction process has been fine-tuned over time and it optimises the entire journey. 

 
Compliance, architecture, interior design, and construction are all interlaced to produce a comprehensive design that blends design and lifestyle aspirations with compliance and financial constraints.
 
Our skilled design team will bring your house idea to life, whether you bring your own concept, or customise one of our pre-designed architectural homes. You'll collaborate with our in-house architects, designers, interior designers, town planner, and estimators to get a full architectural experience without the high prices of a custom home.

Years of design and construction experience have led us to develop a holistic method in which the entire process is controlled in-house, from planning to designing to styling to construction, resulting in a better end result. Have confidence in knowing that the same individuals will be working on your project from the beginning to the end, from project planning through interior design and handover.

Brief, Plan & Estimate

Your design journey will commence with a series of meetings with one of our sales consultants at your home or our display homes. We will work together on your design brief and discuss your budget, site, design, inclusions, aspirations and provide you with an indicative estimate.

Once you are ready to go and have accepted our Design & Planning Agreement (which comprehensively outlines our process and services), we gather any other information that may affect your brief & budget.

In preparation for your initial design meeting, our skilled compliance team will conduct a thorough compliance investigation to find any difficulties or concerns with your block. To avoid unpleasant surprises later in the process, we want to know all the facts before we begin. This information helps you to fine-tune your brief and budget before we start working on your design.

Design

You will visit our in-house Design Studio and be partnered with a H&H architect and your design team.

Based on the brief we've defined, our architects will now conceptualise your home; we design your floorplan, develop plans, costings, computer generated 3D drawings, and full specifications of external finishes, concept landscaping and hydraulics so you can see exactly what your house will look like and know exactly how much it will cost.

After your home has been designed, you will begin the interior design process, which is where you will express your style and where the internal selections are specified.

You will create a comprehensive look and feel for your home by working closely with our in-house interior designers. Throughout the process, you will be guided through the selection of your colour palette, fixtures, and fittings supported by our brand new Design Studio.

In bringing your home to life, our interior designers consider all aspects of design, including space, lines, light, colour, texture, and pattern.

During pre-construction, you will finalise your home's theme and selections, as well as work with our highly regarded industry suppliers to complete your look.

Approvals

We create your portfolio with all plans and specifications once critical decisions have been made.

Detailed working and structural drawings, engineering, internal detail drawings, shadow diagrams and electrical plans, are all part of this package. We'll also work through all town planning and building approval/permits at this point.

The end product is a complete collection of documents, including a fixed-price construction contract that kicks off the construction process.

 

Construction

We arrange the Construction Certificate, order all of the materials, schedule the trades and assign a site manager to you.

During the construction process, we will adhere to realistic timeframes and deliver exceptional workmanship whilst always striving to set new industry benchmarks.

We provide weekly updates on your build until completion, including supervised site visits at each building milestone. As a courtesy to your neighbours, we will personally inform them that we are building in their neighbourhood and seek to ensure they are not impacted by our project.
