We are Architects. We are Interior Designers. We are Project Managers. We are Builders.
Our “concept to completion” process ensures we always have control over the course of your project. By using our proven and streamlined 6 step process we deliver your home in the most cost effective and efficient way.
Meet our architect and design team to define needs and projects requirements. We perform design analysis to evaluate the current building and surrounding conditions, and develop drawings and design concepts in line with the Local Environmental Planning & Development Policies.
We conduct a final review of drawings and consultants’ reports to ensure a smooth journey through council. Once the applications are lodged, we monitor the approval process and periodically liaise with council addressing any items that may arise. Once we obtain the Construction Certificate, we maintain correspondence with relevant regulatory bodies.
Based on the approved drawings, a comprehensive scope of works is completed with detailed specifications eliminating all assumptions at this early stage. Transparency is important for you, the client, to understand exactly what is being built and the costs associated. This also leads to a smoother and efficient build.
Finishes, fixtures and Equipment schedules are finalised along with Lighting, Electrical and Joinery Details to satisfy the clients’ initial brief and approved design concepts.
Once specifications and schedules have been finalised, a detailed Bill of Quantities (BOQ) is produced and the total cost of construction is determined. Client sign-off occurs on the final terms of the main contract, and Home Owners Warranty is issued.
OH&S – Occupational Health and Safety requirements are implemented and monitored.
Project Management – Our Project team will maintain and monitor a detailed construction schedule, and ensure the Scope of Works is properly executed by each individual trade contractor. Regular site meetings are held with all stakeholders including the clients.
Financial Administration – We manage and maintain the project budget and cash flow and communicate to the principal on all matters relating to the budget to ensure all works completed as per budget.
Practical Completion is called when the building works are complete as per scope of works and verified by Casafabrica and the Private Certifier. We then facilitate the issuing of the Occupation Certificate.
At Handover, Casafabrica issue a Maintenance Manual, which includes details of care and upkeep as well as the manuals and copies of relevant certificates.
Post Handover, we perform Quality Control, ensuring our clients’ expectations are exceeded.
