We work with our architectural partners at DF Design to turn your ideas into reality.
When your ready to start the journey towards your new home make contact via phone or email and we will book a time for a face to face consultation. We can meet on your piece of land or in our office. We will have a relaxed chat and get a feel for your vision, requirements, budget and begin working on a comprehensive design brief.
If you want help refine your design brief check this link http://www.buildingguide.co.nz/planning/write-a-brief/
Once the Design Brief is finished we can provide you with a fixed price contract for your design and working drawings. This price will be for a full set of working drawings finished to a stage ready for council submission for building consent. Once this contract and the designs are complete you will have full ownership of your plan set. You be required to make a deposit at the time of signing the contract.
Now that the acceptance of the contract is complete work will begin on the plans and working drawings, this is a 4 Stage process including Stage 1 - Pre Design, Site Visit & Site Analysis, Stage 2 - Concept Designs, Stage 3 - Preliminary design, and Stage 4 Developed Design. You will be actively involved in the design and will be kept informed throughout the entire process.
Once the design, working drawings, and costings are complete we will present you with a fixed price contract for the build. You will enter into a Registered Master Builder contract.
The contract outlines the fixed costs, payment structure, and and a whole lot of valuable information to help protect both you as the client and assist us in running a successful business.
You will also be provide with detailed specifications and inclusions to ensure you are informed and your budget is not compromised.
The contract acts as a legal agreement between you and Cassa Building & Design Ltd. Upon signing the contract document you will also be required to make a deposit.
Before the fun part begins you will have the final pre construction consultation where the finer details of the build are confirmed such as colour schedules for the joinery, roof, and paint colours. Our project manager will explain the construction process of your new home to you in detail before work begins.
Construction of your new home will be overseen by Andre Mayo of Cassa Homes acting as project manager. You will be kept informed throughout the build by way of planned site visits, email updates, phone calls, and progress photo updates.
During the build Cassa Homes will comply with all building code and regulatory requirements as well as regular quality assurance checks by the project manager and qualified site foreman.
Once construction is completed and the necessary council inspections signed off, Cassa Homes will action 'Practical Completion' and initiate the '10 Year Master Builder Guarantee'. Your Code of Compliance Certificate application will be submitted and hand over can begin.
