What to expect when you choose Add Value Renovations
With Add Value Renovations, you’ll have someone with you every step of the way.
This detailed description of our entire process will let you know exactly what to expect when you choose to work with Add Value Renovations.
Step 1 – Get in touch
You can always contact us by phone or, if you prefer an online experience, send us a message through our contact page and we will be in touch within 24hrs.
We’ll ask a few questions to understand a bit more about your project and give you a chance to ask us any of your own. Once we know what we can do for you, we’ll schedule a professional building consultation with one of our senior master builders.
Step 2 – We listen
In this meeting, we will cover all the important topics of your build/renovations. We’ll come to you and listen to your ideas, learn your vision, and understand your goals, including:
Expectations and projections for start/finish dates.
Your dream and inspiration for the renovation.
Cost and timings for details such as plans, architecture and consent.
How we work – our guarantees, project management system and our team.
Importantly, we will look at your budget before you get the plans drawn up. If you go straight to getting plans done, it’s easy to miss your budget completely.
Step 3 – Feasibility
To make sure your dream can be achieved within the council’s rules we will:
Identify issues affecting the site on Watercare’s GIS maps.
Talk with lawyers to check the title conditions.
Obtain and analyse the council property file.
Step 4 – Reporting back
We will provide you with a comprehensive report of what can be achieved on your property within your budget. This is followed by a second meeting with our designers, builders and any specialists.
In this meeting, we will look through each option and help you weigh the pros and cons so that you can make an informed decision about which option is best for your family.
Step 5 – Design and plan
Our experienced architects and builders will work with you to create a plan that incorporates your vision and is practical to implement. We will give you ballpark price to make sure the plan matches your budget, this is about 80% accurate.
After all the adjustments are made, we will consult with you and then send it through to the council for processing.
Step 6 – Quantity surveyor (QS)
We will provide a fixed-price quote based on the plans approved by the council. This detailed pricing schedule will be done by a QS, which covers everything from roofing screws to door handles.
There is a fee to cover the QS and our administration.
Step 7 – Consent approval
As soon as the building consent is approved, we will schedule a site meeting with you to introduce all of our team members and subcontractors. We will update you if there are any variations in the approved plans or anything subcontractors find on site.
We will try to cover all costs before you go ahead to ensure the job will be completed within budget.
Step 8 – Action plan
We plan to perfection to ensure we hit every deadline possible. Our "Add Value Action Plan" provides you with everything you need to know, including:
Project start date.
What will happen at each step.
Progress payment pricing.
What is included and excluded in the quote.
Expected project completion date.
