…WHAT IS THE DPC?…
The DPC or Design, Plan, Construct is the simple 3 step process we follow for each of our home transformations. Our process has been devised to ensure each of our builders work alongside our clients every step of the way, providing guidance, support and an overall seamless experience when renovating your home.
The design stage is the beginning of your home transformation process. This is the first initial contact with our builders where we organise to meet and discuss the changes you wish to make to your home. Whether you have an idea or two in mind or you are starting your design completely from scratch, our builders are here to guide you. Using our teams' years of experience in building, this stage is where we can create your perfect design for your needs and lifestyle together. We are build and design specialists, so no previous plans are required prior to our first meet! We will advise you on a range of options you have to achieve the home you're dreaming of.
So, if you are planning to renovate but don't know where to start, it is as simple as giving our builders a call and we will help you with all the rest!
After spending time with our builders and developing your perfect design in stage one, it is time for stage two, which is planning your home renovation/ extension! After we have touched base once more and come to a design you are happy with, it is time to organise all the other details before construction can commence. Our Plan stage consists of getting everything we need in order to start building your project, such as making sure all permits are obtained and all the rules and regulations according to your area are followed to avoid any unexpected problems along the way. We will continue to touch base with you throughout this process so you're aware of what stage your home is at during any given time.
Once all of these things have been taken care of it is time to begin the more exciting part of the process, construction begins!
It is time to say out with the old & in with the new!
This is where our builders commence working on your home to finally start bringing your design to life. We understand renovating can be stressful, so we are sure to keep you well updated throughout the entire process, from the jobs being completed on your home each day to who will be on site and when, and of course our builders are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Once construction is done & dusted it is time for handover, by far the most rewarding part of the journey. Here, our builders will guide you through the changes made and any other relevant information.
It is time to sit back and enjoy your brand-new space!
