PROCESS

Before starting any sort of apartment renovation project, you need to confirm the following:

  • Strata manager’s details
  • Basic budget. You’re clear on your ballpark budget for the project and communicate this to ensure a tailored solution

A member of our team will book in a phone consult to find out a bit more about your project such as:

  • What is your vision?
  • What is your style?
  • What is your floor plan?
  • Does your apartment require layout changes to the floor plan?
  • Does your apartment require structural works?
  • When would you like to commence the project?
  • What’s your ballpark budget?
  • Do you require interior design services?

Duration of call: 30 minutes

A member of our team will send you a ballpark quotation for your review and approval. This includes:

  • Our company profile
  • Strata approval process flow chart
  • Scope of works
  • Ballpark quotation

Lead time for ballpark quote: 48 hours

We will book in an on-site consultation ($250 + GST) to discuss:

  • Desired floor plans
  • Desired layouts
  • Desired level of finish
  • Desired timings
  • Desired budget
  • Discuss design and construct and construct options.

It’s also a great chance for you to raise any questions you may have regarding the build or design and to get a feel for Mr & Mrs Elias as your designer and builder.

Duration of meeting: 60 minutes

Our team will email you the final revised quotation and works E-contract (7 days after site visit) to sign and lock in a start date.

After receiving this, we ask that you sign the E-contract so that we can begin work on your submission right away.

Lead time for revised quote: 48 hours

A member of our team and structural engineer will attend site to assess the integrity of walls required for removal.

Lead time for engineering plans: 1 week

Our team will submit the following on your behalf;

  • Strata application form
  • Renovation scope of works quotation
  • Basic design
  • Insurances and licences
  • Engineers report (if required)
  • By-laws drafted by our solicitor (if required)

Lead time for strata approval: 3-6 weeks

Whether you choose to do a construction only or design and construct arrangement, we will use the time during the strata approval to further outline the project.

  • Construction only (you guide the design)
    • Week 1: Scope review and define-your-vision meeting (you will be given a document to complete before the meeting)
    • Week 2-4: Scope refinement period
    • Week 5-6: Purchase materials
  • Design and construction (we guide the design)
    • Week 1: Scope review and define-your-vision meeting (with our interior designer)
    • Week 2-4: Scope refinement period
    • Week 5-6: Purchase materials

Steps 7 and 8 can be switched if the project requires it.

Lead time for design and materials purchasing: 3-6 weeks

Once we receive strata approval, we should have the design relatively refined and materials ordered and we will commence the exciting part; the build!
