Choosing the right builder for your project can be a daunting one. You want a builder who will effectively manage the quality of your home’s construction throughout the entire build process. Homes by Howe has a six step process to ensure quality construction management across all their builds.

Step 1: Meet and Greet

The first step to ensuring the quality of your home’s construction is to make sure you and your builder are on the same page from the beginning. The best builders in Canberra will want to start by having a candid conversation with you. This is to establish goals, needs, wants, budget and what you hope to achieve. At Homes by Howe every new home starts with a conversation. We want to get to know you so that we can build the best home possible for your lifestyle.

Step 2: Design Consult

Step two. You’ve decided Homes by Howe are the right builders for you. What next? After the initial conversation, the next step to ensuring the quality of your home’s construction is a design consult. A design consult helps us get it right from the start. Consulting a builder during the design phase of your home ensures construction quality from the beginning. It also helps to reduce wasted time and money. Builders are often better equipped than architects to give you realistic prices on materials and build costs. They can suggest design changes that will save you money and improve the overall construction quality.

Step 3: Selection Process

The quality of your home’s construction is only as good as the materials you have available. Homes by Howe’s exclusive trade base guarantee high-quality finishes throughout your new home. This is the part where you get to choose floor finishes, tiles, appliances and more. Whether you decide to go for luxury or standard fittings our service will still be delivered to the highest standard regardless.

The best quality builds are the ones that utilise their allocated budget to the fullest. Quality construction is about producing the highest quality build within your budget. At Homes by Howe we spend time with you to understand all contract inclusions and design requirements. We will then provide you with a detailed preliminary estimate to ensure the quality of your home’s construction.

Step 5: Construction

Now we get to the exciting part! Construction time. To ensure the quality of your home’s construction at every step in the process Homes by Howe has a site manager and builder on site from start to finish. We develop a construction program that allows you to stay up-to-date with the progress of your build. This includes regular on-site meetings to review milestones and discuss build progress. This ensures you get the highest quality service and construction from start to finish.

Step 6: Handover

Once the construction process is complete it’s time for handover. During handover, your builder and site manager will walk you through your new dream home. This is the time to ask lots of questions and check over everything to make sure it is to your specifications. Following the handover, you have a 90-day period to identify and note any concerns. If there are any problems we will visit you at home and resolve any defects to the highest quality.

We hope this has shed some light on how Homes by Howe manage the quality of your new home’s construction. The best builders will be monitoring quality throughout the entire construction process.
