We are not just selling a finished product – we are selling an experience. An experience that we strive to make as smooth flowing as possible and an exciting adventure rather than a difficult task:
1 – Concept Design
Design and briefing meetings will be held with the architectural designer. We do not have a standard plan range, because we try to build every clients dream and individuality into actuality.
Do you already have plans? Then great! We will work together with you and your architect to bring it all together
2 – What do you want?
If you are like most people, then you have a budget in mind. Our architect will put together concept plans for you based on everything that you have told us.
It is time to tell us about you and your family. We will look at your scrap books, and sample ideas that you have collected over the years. We will listen to everything that you want in your home and present other potential ideas. We will document all of your initial preferences.
3 – What will it cost?
When you are happy with the concept design for your home and before you have committed to the project, Scope construction can provide you with an estimate cost to build it.
4 – Money Talks
It takes money to build a dream house, so once you have an estimate quote to build, this is a great time to ensure that you can finance that design – Talk to your bank manager. When it comes to financing there are a lot of things to keep in mind, such as, owners care items, a contingency reserve and funding for your living arrangement during the build.
5 – The thumbs up!
When you know that you can fund the project and are rearing to get started, we need to get down to business! We will organize for the construction drawings to be drawn up. At this stage we will organize the engineering, soil tests and the nitty gritty specifications.
Once we have these, we will meet with you again to go over selections in more detail. We will document items that have changed from the original estimate and then we can provide you with an accurate amount that it will cost to build your home based on any changes or new ideas that you have requested and based on the structural specifications.
6 – Selections and finishes – The fun part!
Now, you can start your selections process choosing precisely what you want in your home from flooring to colour selections. We will let you know at what stage you need to decide on which selections! For those who don’t have time to look at the selections items, we can provide you with our low, mid and high range packages for things like Plumbing fixtures etc.
Building your new project is an exciting and important endeavour, and Scope Construction wants the process to be as smooth and enjoyable as possible. That is why we provide each of our clients with access to a secure website with all of the details of their project. Whether you are at home, at work, on the road, or on vacation, Scope Construction puts information at your fingertips about your selections, upgrades, financial decisions, questions, documents, photos, and more.
Look at the video on our web-site to see just a few of the ways our online client access keeps you in touch and well-informed during the construction of your new project.

7 – The Red Tape
While you are having fun, starting to decide on the selection items in your home, Scope construction will see your project through the certification process and council to achieve Building Approval.
8 – Hammer Time!
We’re ready to Build! Construction can commence when we have the council approved plans. We will give you a start date and a construction timeline schedule. We will hold regular site meetings with you and update our online website access with photos of building progress.
9 – The Keys to Your New Home!
Once your new home is complete and the final council inspection has been undertaken, Scope Construction will arrange to meet with you for handover. As part of the handover process we will advise you of your maintenance period and product guarantees. You are now ready to move into your dream home!
