Design and Build

Design and Build Services, Auckland

Using our design and build services is one of the most cost-effective ways of building a new home in Auckland. As part of the process is already complete before you even begin, the timescales involved are shorter too. Combine this with the fact that we have a lot of experience completing design and build projects, and it is a very attractive option.

At Add Value Renovations, we work with leading architects in Auckland to develop off-the-shelf 3-bedroom and 2-bedroom house plans. There are several house designs to choose from so you can get a home that matches your requirements and tastes.

In addition, you have the option to go with the design you choose as it is, or we can get the architect to customise it if you want to make small changes.

All the designs that we offer as part of our design and build service have been thoroughly checked and vetted by our team. Plus, we have used most of the plans before to build new homes for our clients. Therefore, you can have confidence that we will progress the build smoothly, and you can have confidence in any advice that we give.

How we can build your dream home

Getting unique house plans drawn up can be a costly process as architect fees are not cheap. Our design and build services get you past this stage, reducing the overall cost in addition to being able to move to the construction phase sooner rather than later.

Some of the options that you have to choose from include:

  • Small house design plans
  • Medium and larger house designs
  • Modern house design plans
  • House designs with a more traditional look

Plus, just because you are not going through a unique house design process doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality and it doesn’t mean you have to forego the pursuit of the home of your dreams.

The quality of our plans are as good as the quality of any unique house plan, plus we have options to suit most tastes. Please contact us on 09 393 5658 to find out more.

Benifits of our full-package services

In addition to reducing costs and the time it takes to complete a new build project, working with one contractor throughout offers a range of other benefits:

We have intimate knowledge of the plans we offer under our design and build service, so there will be no confusion, miscommunication, or design conflicts that sometimes occur on other new build residential projects.

Your project will benefit from the expertise we have built up on previous design and build projects. When we are working with architects to create our off-the-shelf plans, we give extensive thought to the supply of materials required to complete your build.

The cost of the build overall will be lower because of all the above.

The process starts by talking to a member of our team.

Please give us a call today on 09 393 5658 to arrange a design and build consultation.


Step one of our process

1) Free Consultation

The first step is an initial consultation with one of our senior master builders, meeting at your property to discuss your vision for the renovation. During this visit, we'll identify your requirements (including your budget) and we will discuss initial ideas.

Step two of our process

2) Concept Plans

We will determine if we can stay within your budget and will send the initial ideas to an architect. They will draw out a good concept of what we are thinking about and what has been discussed in the consultation. Then, we will determine a cost that is around 80% accurate.

Step three of our process

3) Fixed Price Contract

Don't worry about step 2, as we will get far more accurate before anything large is done. If the concept drawing is approved, we can move to the next phase where the drawing gets added detail and the quote is revised until it is around 95% accurate.

Step four of our process

4) Starting Your Dream

Once the scope of building works and all necessary paperwork is approved, we'll create a tailored contract. You can also meet the Add Value Renovations crew before accepting the project. This is when the fun begins, and we turn your vision into reality.
