Do you dream of a quality, custom designed home built in Kapiti Coast & The Greater Wellington Region?
If so you’re in the right place!
We can help you save a lot of time & money.
Many architects mean well but don’t always have a clear understanding of budgets. That’s not always a bad thing, but it can be an expensive thing.
We have established relationships with many local architects and can support your project from concept through keys in hand but only once we have had a look.
A custom home build is such an amazing journey!
As you would already know it can take between 6 months to 18 months. You have to love the builders you are working with – learn more about our team here.
We believe every project is unique and as such we customise to fit your needs every time.
With our friendly approach, we will partner with you to make your vision a reality.
It all starts with a conversation – Are we the right fit for you?
Hayden is partial to Long Black, and you can pull his ear for advice but first thing is first fill in this form to lock in an appointment.
The best guarantee in your town!
Once the online form has been filled out, someone from the Resolute Construction team will be in touch to discuss your ideas, budget, and timeline and try to get a clear picture of your requirements. If we both agree we are a good fit, we will send an email questionnaire for you to complete containing some questions that will give us some background and help us get on the same page with your vision. This will help our first meeting run smoothly. We will then book a date for our first meeting.
Our Managing Director Hayden Nation will meet you in person to discuss your lifestyle and unique vision for your home. This will also allow us to go through the questionnaire in more detail.
This meeting is a chance to bring ideas, photos, plans and any other information you might have. We will give you an insight into our build systems and processes.
We will be able to create a pathway forward by discussing timelines and general requirements and be able to move onto finding an architect. (If you already have an architect with concept plans, please move to step 4)
We will put together a design brief that will outline your vision, needs and requirements. Choosing the right architect for the project is a very important step. Through our network, we will help you find and choose a suitable architect for your dream home.
The architect will design an initial set of concept plans that fits within your design brief, and you will get a better visualisation of what your dream home will look like. We can now work out any special council requirements and a scope of works.
At this stage we will be able to provide you with our clear terms of engagement and a sample Master Builders contract for your appraisal. Our Preliminary Budget is a proven extensive pricing and due diligence process which will help you understand the investment and timeline of the project. When the boxes have been ticked and you are happy with the design and budget, the architect can move onto the detailed drawings.
We can then proceed to pricing your forever home with our open book pricing policy. We will keep you up to date on the process as we engage with our highly experienced network of professional subcontractors to ensure the process is thorough, clear and accurate.
When the quote/estimate has been finalised, we will arrange a meeting to present the quote and go through every aspect of the detailed costings. This is a perfect opportunity to ask all the tough questions, and to ensure all budget concerns are satisfied.
Upon acceptance of your quote, we will formalise and sign the contract documents and apply for your 10-year Masterbuild guarantee, and present you with a detailed timeline and program. A start date will be agreed. We will ensure all council preconstruction requirements have been satisfied.
Meet the Team & Communication
Before construction starts, we will organise for you to meet our dedicated Site Manager, along with our friendly team of builders. We will set you up with our Resolute Construction App that will allow access to our cloud-based project management software. This means you have live access to every aspect of the build with documents, daily log reporting, daily photographs etc. This allows a consistent and transparent communication portal throughout your entire build process and helps to create a successful and STRESS-FREE building experience.
We take over your site and start to build your new home. Once construction starts, you will:
1. Receive daily logs via our Resolute Construction Project Management App
2. Your Site Manager will provide you with weekly site reports
3. We will invite you to fortnightly site meetings with Managing Director Hayden Nation and the Site Foreman
These meetings will keep you informed as your forever home takes shape and will ensure that the project is running smoothly. It will also allow us to keep ahead of any variations you may request or changes that may be necessary.
With any variations or changes that may crop up, we will promptly update costings, budgets and timelines. We will also make sure to:
- keep you informed through this process, so you are NOT surprised with any unforeseen costs, charges or delays
- keep the programme reviewed through the construction process and communicate changes as they become necessary
- work through our 300-point Quality Control Checklist as each stage progresses.
Once Construction is complete, we will engage professional cleaners to spotlessly clean your new dream home, ready for you to take possession and move in. Even when your home is complete, we will keep in contact to attend to any minor issues that may arise. We will take care of your council compliance requirements and close off all 10-year Masterbuilders Guarantee requirements on your behalf.
REQUEST A CONSULTATION
Our director, Hayden Nation, will personally conduct the session, which is normally valued at $300. However, we are offering the session FREE to people that are seriously considering building a dream home to help them make informed decisions towards the next step.
