Preparing your lot for home construction

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?

Sewer and drainage allows for disposal of waste

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.

The streetscape will take shape with road construction

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.

Electrical and communications are getting wired up

Installing underground electrical infrastructure means your future home is ready to connect power. Qualified electricians will design layout drafts, prepare conduit and install all necessary wiring. In this step communications wiring is supplied to your lot, ready for NBN to connect you to the internet.

The final touches are being made with finishing works

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.

Lodging for registration in preparation for settlement

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!
