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?

 
 

Let’s start from the ground with earthworks

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.

 
 
 
 

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 streets 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

In this step, cabling is installed in the streets that will enable your builder to supply electricity to your home.

The Opticomm pit and pipe infrastructure is also installed. We then transfer ownership of this asset to Opticomm and they pull through the fibre to the pits in the street to make individual addresses within the development serviceable.

Your builder also follows steps to ensure a home is Opticomm equipped, such as connecting the wiring from the street infrastructure to your home for your telephone and data points.

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. Footpaths are a part of these works 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!
