Our 8 Step Home Extension Process

We take pride in providing Melbourne property owners with the best home extension services in the market. Our approach to meeting clients’ needs means that we involve them every step of the way, starting from project design right through to the final inspection. 

We make sure that we take all of your input into consideration when it comes to making decisions about your home extension project. This way, we can make sure that we deliver exactly what you want to achieve. We think it is critical that you feel included as much as possible during the entire design and build process.

At Bayside Extensions, we understand that homes are not just physical structures, they represent our personalities and there is an emotional connection. This is why most homeowners want to ensure their house is not just aesthetically pleasing, but also functional so the home can be enjoyed for many years to come.

After considering all the factors that go into a successful home extension project, we’ve designed our process to be as hassle-free and efficient for you as possible. To achieve this, we have an 8 step process that we follow:

1) Initial Design Consultation – Following your initial phone or email contact with our office, a designer from our team will reach out to you to discuss your renovation and extension requirements.

2) Preliminary Measure & Design – Following the initial consultation, the design team will go back to your property and take photographs of the exterior, as well as measure your property and obtain the dimensions of your existing home. Using this information, we use 3D computer modelling software to create some illustrations of what your new extension might look like.

3) Design Presentation – After the existing conditions of your home have been drafted and an initial design developed, our drafting team will produce concept plans, which will subsequently be costed by our estimator.  Our designer will discuss and present the design to you. At this stage, you may discuss any amendments that you may require.

4) Preliminary Agreement –
 When the design and costs have been agreed upon, you will be presented with the Preliminary Agreement to sign, and the Preliminary Payment is required to be paid at this point.

5) Working Drawings – Your Preliminary Payment will cover the cost of the Soil Test, Structural Engineering, Working Drawings, Town Planning (if applicable) and any other items detailed in the Preliminary Agreement.

6) Contract Signed – Once the Working Drawings are complete, the Building Contract and Specification Document will be presented to you to sign and the Contract Deposit is required to be paid at this point.

7) Building Permit Obtained & Building Works Commence – Our team will apply for the Building Permit with your appointed Building Surveyor. We will also acquire Homeowner’s Warranty Insurance and organise the pre-commencement site meeting with you to discuss work schedules, access to the site and material orders, as well as coordinate tradesmen throughout project execution ensuring everything runs smoothly from start to finish. Once the Building Permit is obtained, the building works will commence.
Construction will be managed by our experienced Site Supervisor and our team of tradesmen work with precision – ensuring that even the finest of details are taken care of. Crucially during this phase, we implement very high safety standards.

8) Completion of Project – When the project is complete, we will issue you with the Notice of Completion. We will also make sure that the Code of Compliance documents are also completed and submitted to the necessary authorities.
