Design and Build Process

Design and Build Process

MG Design and Build were established almost 25 years ago. Our fully qualified and experienced staff are experts in designing and building luxury homes. Our design and build process centres on the mission of giving you peace of mind by project managing the process from start to finish – but also providing you with full control so your needs and wants always take centre stage. 

The Process

Our full service design and build process means everything can be taken care of under our expert supervision. No need to go to separate architects, contractors and builders, who step on each other’s toes and don’t work well together.  

From design to build, our utmost priority is to fulfil our client’s wishes throughout the entire process, working together with you to deliver a smooth and enjoyable homebuilding project. 

Step 1: Client Consultation and Time Frame 

You and your family will be the driving force of the project, leading the project with what you envision your property to look like. Our team always starts with a detailed client consultation so that we can establish this and develop a time frame. 

Step 2: Designing your Dream Home 

We will help develop the best plan for you according to your requirements, keeping in mind the surroundings and local planning policies. Our team of architects and interior designers are on-hand to put exactly what you envisioned as your forever home, down on paper. With our build team ready to go, we ensure everything is suitable for construction, so time isn’t wasted in the planning stage, and plans don’t need to be re-drawn.  

Detailed 3D drawings will guarantee everything you wanted is down on paper, even down to the smallest of details. Once the design is finalised, we can deliver the estimated budget for the entire project. 

Step 3: Specification of Construction Materials 

Once satisfied with your architectural design, then we move on to the next step. We specify the materials needed for construction. We also go over your selections for finishes, colours, textures etc. for your new home.  

We manage this step totally for you, so you can focus on other tasks. 

Once this stage is finished, we can let you know the actual cost of your home, as everything will have been ordered and prices will be able to be added up.

Step 4: Build and Completion of Project 

When we start the building process, we tell customers the time frame and complete the build phases without delay. Our builders work with a proper plan and strategy meeting milestones along the agreed timeline. You will easily able to track which tasks our builders are working on, at any given time. 

We keep in contact with you through the entire process, through our dedicated client management team. With two-weekly evaluations on-site, you will be fully involved in the process, from start to end. 

Step 5: Exchange 

This last phase in the build process covers the sign-off, final walk through and exchange.  At this stage, we ensure everything is of the high quality standard you expect, and we hand over the paperwork you need such as building regulation sign-off, warranty documents and anything else. 

After final payment is made, we hand you the keys to your forever home. Now your dream really is a reality!

Design and Build Estimation Service 

As you can imagine, estimating and understanding how much a luxury custom home will cost is a hard question to answer. We have had the privilege of building homes of all sizes and styles which have ranged in cost. There are many factors that influence the cost of a home, from lot size, home size, room features, architectural size, budget for appliances, design aesthetic and desired level of finish. 

If you provide us this information or already have completed architectural designs/specifications, we can produce a price estimation for you. We shoot for no holes in our budget so that it truly reflects the future cost of your home, so we will give you a range of where your final cost may land.
