The construction procedure

Each construction process is exceptional and relies on the project’s scope and complexity. However, whenever we are building a sustainable house, we follow standard steps and the principles are the same for small-scale projects such as renovations.

Selecting a builder

Before picking a builder, you need to research and follow a design process as follows:

Design process

Each design process is exceptional and the steps are different, depending on how complex the project is, and whether you are constructing a new house, renovating or making some minor home improvements.

Preliminary research

  • Examine your existing home and lifestyle
  • Develop the design brief
  • Decide your maximum budget
  • Explore sources of expert advice for every stage of decision.

Picking the appropriate designer like Australian Construction is a crucial step to building your new house. Designers fall into two main groups; building or architect designer. In Australia, the state registers and regulates our architects; the legislation controlling them is different for each state.

To be registered under Australia’s Architects Accreditation Council, an individual should have a recognised architecture degree or express equivalent qualifications, go through a period of experimental training and qualify in a practice test. To maintain registration, architects should have correct professional indemnity insurance and undergo constant ongoing professional development.

Registration and regulation of building designers is also different between states. Building designers are government-registered in Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania. Building designers like Australian Construction provide a wide range of services that may differ from other firms. Some have specialist design degrees while others are qualified drafting experts.

Pick a designer depending on their qualifications, experience and demonstrated ability to build the kind of home you want. Ensure they have professional indemnity insurance. Get references from previous customers and if feasible, visit houses built by the designer.

Most architects and building designers are currently specialists in sustainable practice. Pick a designer with specialist expertise in this field like Australian Construction to get top-quality, affordable results.

Working with your designer

Designers usually organise a team of specialist consultants like structural engineer, geo-technical engineer, building sustainability assessor, landscape designer and interior designer. Get references for recommended consultants to make sure they can deliver consistent, expert outcomes in your region, climate and local government area. You might choose to leave all your home design decisions to the consultants and designer or opt to take part in the whole process.

Whatever the case, talk to the designers about your involvement level before hiring one of them; pick a designer like Australian Construction who is willing to deliver what you need. The way you interact with your designer during the project is crucial. If you become too involved it can restrict the designer’s capability of providing ideal solutions.

On the other hand, under-involvement may give you a house that does not meet your requirements. Ensure that as the client, you are comfortable with all the stages. Many local governments have complex planning controls that can affect your design solution in the long-term so they need to be discussed. Your designer needs comprehensive awareness of these planning controls and likewise  should be able to work with the local state authority or appoint a suitably qualified accountant to discuss council approval for you.

Site assessment

Accompany your designer to the site to conduct ‘SWOT’ assessment (strengths, opportunities and threats). This is the first time you are working with your designer to confirm you have the same goals. 

While on site, consider the following: 

  • Services (gas, power, sewer, water, phone).
  • Access and transport
  • Storm water drainage
  • Bushfire risks
  • Type of soil (geo-technical report)
  • Slope (site survey)
  • Landforms overshadowing  (buildings, trees)
  • Solar access
  • Views
  • Orientation
  • Site-specific variables and climate responsive design.

After the initial site visit, the designer sets up a concept plan and site assessment. Following this first consultation or site visit, request your designer to identify likely design solutions that exploit the site’s openings and strengths. Ensure any weaknesses are addressed early on. For example, inadequate solar access and possible weather threats like flooding, fire risk or slipping soils should be discussed at this stage.

 Brief creation, cost proposal & design contract

Your design contract is usually signed during this stage, if not  earlier. The contract is updated throughout the design process and is the foundation of the designer’s cost proposal.  The designer reviews your first budget to identify possible issues and advises strategies to deal with them.

They then prepare numerous concept designs and permit you to analyse and compare them with your brief. Input from an assessor or a building sustainability consultant is helpful at this stage. It ensures you get top-level thermal performance and the design remains flexible.

Design development

After talking to your designer, pick a concept design that is most suitable to your needs. After this the designer develops the idea into an introductory layout.  This is a crucial stage that involves initial room arrangements, first choice of building systems, and indication of outdoor-indoor flow, and furniture layouts. Choosing materials for internal and external finishes happens at this stage also.
