The Journey

Step 1

What is YOUR DREAM?

FIRST CONSULTATION FREE

Our Client Manager and Senior Designer Sean Cowburn, meets with you to explore design possibilities and to discuss how Claridge Construction can deliver your dream home.

In this meeting, Sean will discuss your vision/ideas and initial design solutions. Your budget will be taken into consideration, ensuring it aligns with your design brief and undergoes a ‘build-ability’ check.

We encourage you to ask any questions, we want you to feel informed and have a clear understanding of the process and how it all works. Sean will explain to you, in detail, our unique ‘7 Step’ building process.

We are keen to demonstrate our building skill and capability, therefore, you will also be provided a presentation of previous work and case studies of similar work. Available to you is also a list of current and previous client referees for your peace of mind.

Creating the DESIGN

CONCEPT & FEASIBILITY PROCESS

Based upon our initial meeting, Senior Designer/ Client Manager, Sean Cowburn, will continue with your initial design pathway. It will be influenced by the orientation and nature of your property with sustainable design and passive solar principles applied where possible.

Together you will review the options, with the opportunity to brainstorm the layout and all of its features. Sean will ensure your requirements and expectations are met whilst keeping the design brief and budget always in mind. The outcome is your draft site plan, floor plan and main elevation. Everything is centred around your requirements and lifestyle goals.

Once you have approved the initial design, all aspects of your project are formally estimated adopting our exclusive range of quality fittings and finishes and we are able to construct a comprehensive building estimate.

Our Estimator, Jeffrey Martin, will sit down with you prior to pricing, to confirm general finishes are to your expectations and to ensure budget pricing is as accurate as possible.
