The stages of preparing your lot for building ensure the foundation of your future home is constructed to the highest engineering standards. So, what’s really involved in the process?
Excavation of land is one of the first steps of the construction process. This step aims to clear, dig, level and compact natural features of the land to ensure it is ready for building on. Earthworks will also ensure the roadways are ready for asphalt.
Installation of infrastructure to manage waste and water is the next step in the process. A network of pipes are installed to connect sanitary drains to main disposal ways. This is the most effective way to remove waste and ensure the longevity of your land and lot.
Construction of road infrastructure will shape the functionality of your future street. Initial mapping will determine the best access ways for each road and footpath. Next, the roads take shape with gutters and your driveway is allocated. Once the roads are ready, contractors and tradespeople will make use of them to access your lot.
In this step, cabling is installed in the streets that will enable your builder to supply electricity to your home.
The nbn™ pit and pipe infrastructure is also installed. We then transfer ownership of this asset to Nbn Co and they pull through the fibre to the nbn™ pits in the street to make individual addresses within the development serviceable.
Your builder also follows steps to ensure a home is nbn™ equipped, such as connecting the wiring from the street infrastructure to your home for your telephone and data points.
The construction of your street is almost complete and new roads will connect you and your neighbours to the amenities nearby. Landscaping may also be going on at this time with the planting of street trees in the Council verge to enhance the streetscape of the community. Footpaths are a part of this and connect your home with walking and riding paths throughout the community.
Once your lot complies with the guidelines of relevant authorities, we are ready to lodge with the Land Titles Office. When registering your lot, the overall plan of your property will be presented for approval and when successful your individual title will be issued. After that and upon settlement, building can commence on your new home!
