Our Christchurch New Build Develpment Process

At Janssen Contractors, we guide you through every step of your new home construction, from conceptual design to the finishing touches. Our team coordinates all aspects of the build, providing a seamless, single point of contact to ensure a hassle-free experience. We’re committed to transforming your vision into a functional, valuable, and beautifully tailored space that enhances your lifestyle and increases your home’s value. This process is designed to make building your new home a smooth and rewarding journey, with our expertise and dedication at your service.

Step 1 | Discovery

The Discovery Process is a crucial initial step where you’ll familiarize yourself with our team and our approach, and we’ll dive into understanding your project’s requirements, desires, and goals within your budget. Our experts will evaluate your site to determine the optimal construction plan, focusing on leveraging natural light and maximizing any potential views. This phase ensures that we align our strategies with your vision from the outset, setting a solid foundation for your project.

Step 2 | Design

After gathering details about your site, our next step at Janssen Contractors is to collaborate closely with you, ensuring we’re fully prepared for the design phase. This includes refining our understanding of your preferences and requirements, as outlined in the Discovery stage. We’ll carefully consider the layout and flow between rooms, with a keen eye on optimizing natural light at different times of the day. Upon reaching a mutual agreement, we will request your formal approval and a financial commitment to proceed with drafting the Concept Plans. This marks the beginning of bringing the vision of your home to life, with our Designer taking the lead in developing detailed, tailored plans that encapsulate all aspects of your dream home.

Step 3 | Concept Plans

Once the Concept Plans are complete, we’ll present them to you for review. This crucial step brings the initial discussions to life, offering a concrete glimpse into your future home with detailed floor plans, elevations, and a full site plan. Understanding that perfection requires patience, we’re prepared for multiple meetings to refine the designs. This ensures the final plans accurately reflect your vision, ensuring your dream home is exactly as you envision.

Step 4 | Final Adjustments

As the project progresses and more specifics are defined, our collaborative effort intensifies. We’ll dive deeper into the design, refining it to ensure it aligns perfectly with your vision. The selection process is a pivotal phase where we choose the materials and products that will bring your home to life. This is where your house truly begins to take shape, as we decide together on the elements that will define its character, from construction materials to the interior finishes and fixtures.

Step 5 | Pricing Round

Once the updated plans are finalized, and preliminary pricing is set, we’ll present these to you for review and discussion. This step ensures that the pricing and specifications align with the decisions we’ve made together. Your approval of the final price will then serve as the foundation for the Building Contract, solidifying our agreement and moving us closer to the commencement of construction on your dream home. This process is critical for transparency and ensuring that all your preferences are accurately reflected in the project scope and budget.

Step 6 | Paperwork

After you accept the plans and pricing, we move forward by preparing the draft Building Contract or, if needed, proceed to prepare Working Drawings which may require a further financial commitment from you. Full Working Drawings will be presented to ensure every detail is to your satisfaction. Following this, the final Building Contract and its specifications, integral to the contract, will be presented for your review and signature. We advise seeking legal counsel during this phase. Once the contract is signed by all parties, we will organize the necessary Building Consents from the local council to commence construction. During these stages, you will also have the opportunity to meet with our colour consultants and interior design experts to finalize the aesthetic details of your new home.

Step 7 | Construction Kick-off and Progress Updates

The journey begins with laying the foundation, moving through to the meticulous crafting of your home’s exterior and interior by our skilled tradespeople. We prioritize keeping you informed with regular updates throughout the build. Utilizing advanced building software, we capture the evolution of your home with progress photos, ensuring you’re involved at every stage. Our team expertly manages all subcontractors, ensuring timely completion and adherence to our high standards.

Step 8 | Quality Assurance and Client Collaboration

Our commitment to excellence is demonstrated through rigorous inspections conducted at key stages of the build, each encompassing over 300 checkpoints. These inspections, performed by our construction managers, guarantee the workmanship meets our stringent quality criteria. We understand the fluid nature of building a home and are fully prepared to discuss and accommodate any changes you might envision, assessing their impact on the timeline and budget with full transparency.

Step 9 | Final Inspection and Handover

Before handover, a comprehensive final inspection is conducted to ensure no detail is overlooked, covering everything from structural integrity to safety features. This process confirms that every aspect of your home is built to our exacting standards. Upon completion, a detailed report of the inspection, including any iterations made during construction, is provided to you, ensuring your new home is ready for your family to enjoy.
