How Our Auckland Home Alterations Work
We work with architects all around Auckland to prepare the construction drawings. We apply for the building consent and when this is granted we will start the construction process. Different jobs demand different Council inspections and once these have passed, we can finalise the building process and apply for the Code of Compliance Certificate (CCC).
Steps to success:
1) Meet and discuss the project
2) Preliminary estimation of the project
3) Meet with the architect
4) Final estimate
5) Apply for Building Consent
6) Organise the start date and delivery of materials
7) Construction stage
8) Inspection stage
9) Project completion, obtain CCC
House Extensions to Expand and Add Value to Your Home
A large part of our construction work involves home extensions.
Common extensions include;
- garage extensions
- ground floor extensions
- second storey extensions
Extensions can also be made into self-contained units with kitchen and bathroom.
Garage and basement conversions
A smart design can turn your garage or basement into a very livable additional bedroom or self-contained unit.
Garages and basements can be converted into habitable rooms without building consent if they meet the standards of the NZ Building Code.
We also have the experience to excavate and or extend your garage or basement and convert it, with any required structural alterations, into a larger and more livable room.
A garage (or basement) can also be converted into a self contained unit (secondary dwelling) with a kitchen and bathroom.
We can manage your home alteration project end to end, help advise on cost effective solutions and support with the consent process.
Load bearing wall removals
Home alterations that involve removing walls to create a more spacious open plan layout, or large windows or doors can often require the removal of a load bearing wall.
Load bearing walls can generally be replaced with a beam.
This type of work will require a building consent. As licensed builders, we can guide you through solutions that meet the building code and if needed also support you through the consent process.
If the wall is not load-bearing the wall removal work will likely not require building consent.
