Our Process

New Home

1. Initial design and process meeting


We visit your Home, land or even your favourite café to discuss and document your ideas, requirements, plans and budgets.

At this stage prior to progressing further we require a surveyor to prepare a Detail Survey (also known as a Contour Survey) of your property showing the features and structures (buildings, driveways, walls, trees, creeks etc.) on the land (and possibly the neighbouring land as well). A Detail Survey shows the existing features and structures within and adjacent to a parcel of land and allows TR Building Solutions, Architect / Draftsperson to assess the site and design your home. Council also require a Detail Survey Plan as part of a (DA) Development Application or (CDC) Complying Development Certificate.

A CDC is a streamlined approval process that allows you to avoid the complicated and lengthy Council Development Application process

Design and briefing meetings are held with the architectural designer / draftsperson to develop your brief.

From these meetings your concept design and initial cost estimate is prepared, presented and amended if necessary. Preliminary drawings are issued for review, multiple revisions and meeting may be required before we start Working Drawings.

As the works will be over $20,000.00 we will submit an application to our insurance broker being the Master Builders association of NSW (Insurance Division) who will then lodge with Icare (the current and only insurer) and a certificate will be issued in accordance with the Home Building Act. No building works can commence before this being received.




5. Colour selection/finishes
