Our
PROCESS

It's our aim to build you a house you'll be proud to
call your home for years to come.

At G&P Builders, we’re aware that building a home can be a stressful process. But it doesn’t have to be like that! You can enjoy all the excitement of building a new home, and leave the fiddly bits to us.

Judging by the feedback we get from our happy clients, we have been succeeding! Our complete service process ensures you have a smooth build from start to finish and we are happy to be as flexible, as possible, to achieve the result you want.

“After several indications from people in the industry we would be pleased, we pushed forward with G&P to build our place. Bottom line, it was a big project and we have a great outcome. Sure there are challenges, and with a good basis for collaborating and a good open mind solutions come about. G&P were considerate to our neighbours, place importance on safety and good housekeeping on the job site, and delivered on schedule and under budget.

In contrast, our neighbour had 30 variations and 18 months of building with a major Brisbane building brand before he kicked them out to finish the work himself! Great team of trades, working together to minimise interface issues. “

The following is our tried and true process to
building your dream home

Preliminary Discussion

The best place to start is view one of our display homes and help us develop a feel for the project you are trying to build.  General items that will be discussed include:

 

The type of home – lowset, highset, duplex, acreage or split level

Orientation of home – larger or narrower frontage

Number of bedrooms and ideas for their location

Quantity of “living areas” and position of these on the block

Extent of finish – your “wish list”, likes and dislikes

Budget/project estimation – this enables us to set clear expectations for both parties

Your ideas – a plan you have seen or your own thoughts

Design Consultation with Building Team

You will meet with our planning team (Mike, Aaron or Cory) who will look at your block of land and become familiar with your site plan and confirm your ideas from the preliminary discussion. Using this information we will offer a range of ideas and different layouts and concepts to suit your block.  Careful consideration is given to ensure that ideas/concepts meet your requirements and are within your budget.

We will correspond with you after the meeting to confirm a design and proceed towards a formalised concept plan.

Design Review / Approval and Quote Specifics

Concept plans are drawn up and presented to you. Any changes you wish to make will be amended, as well as our honest opinion on the flow of the plan and how it can be enhanced.  At this stage your “wish list” and extent of finish required for the quote will be discussed in order for a fixed price quote and inclusions list (specifications) to be presented.

Presentation of Quote

A detailed quote is prepared and presented for you to review.  A meeting is beneficial to discuss any queries that you may have.  The quote is a fixed final price(pending receipt of soil test), so that there are no hidden surprises!

Fixed Price Contract and Sign Up

If you are ready to proceed we will have a meeting to sign a HIA Builder Contract and specification with you.  An invoice is prepared for your initial deposit to be paid.

Behind the Scenes Work and Approvals

We will obtain all approvals and advise you when it’s time to visit the colour co-ordinator and where and how to make appropriate selections for finishes.

Building Starts

You will be regularly updated on the progress of your job and you always be in contact with the people who you started the journey with, which ensures peace of mind and a smooth transition into your new home!

We encourage you to visit the building site regularly so you get familiar with the aesthetics and practicalities while the house is still under construction. If something is not quite perfect, you can change it before it’s a problem to alter. It’s this sort of flexibility, foresight, and experience that makes G&P Builders a favourite home builder in the South East Queensland region. At G&P Builders, we will ensure the building of your new home runs smoothly and seamlessly so that the transition into your brand new home is an enjoyable, exciting experience!
