The Knockdown Rebuild journey

1) Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will conduct a free site inspection

Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will take the time to get to know you and your block. Once you provide us with a clear copy of the land title, plan of subdivision, or Section 32, your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will perform a no-obligation, preliminary site inspection.
If there are any town planning requirements, construction implications, or site access issues—overhead powerlines, site access, vegetations or construction parking, existing swimming pools or similar—we’ll identify them early on in the process and be there to give you honest advice and proper guidance.

2) Visit us for your one-on-one design consultation

This is the fun part! We’ll take the time to get to know you and your family so we can help you bring your dream home to life. Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will work with you and recommend a home design that suits your block, so you can have a beautiful space that resonates with your lifestyle and personal aesthetic.

3) Initial deposit

Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will present you with an initial quotation for your design. Once you’re satisfied, you make it official by submitting your initial deposit.

4) Confirmation

Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will present you with the Confirmation plans and pricing. Then they’ll work with you to make sure your home is exactly what you want, including any variations. Next, you sign the Confirmation Document and pay a Confirmation Deposit.

5) Prepare for demolition

Our demolition partner will guide you on how to prepare the property for demolition. This involves disconnecting any services, notifying tenants, and lodging an application for demolition with your local council and relevant authorities. You’ll also have to remove any items from the house to ensure the demolition is safe.

6) Town planning

If this is required for your property, we’ll help you navigate the process. And our appointed Town Planner will help you understand and complete town planning reports, plans and documents required for a successful application.

7) Showroom appointment

Working alongside one of our Interior Designers, you’ll visit our state-of-the-art Showroom. This is where you’ll get inspired to explore all of the options available and select luxurious finishes that will bring your style and a personalised touch to your home. Plus, see your dream come to life with Vision: our home visualisation tool.

8) HIA contract signing

Your Knockdown Rebuild Specialist will book a contract signing appointment with you. During this time they’ll guide you through the Housing Industry Association (HIA) contract. They will explain and check all the finer details with you and ensure you are comfortable with your contract before signing it off.

9) Building permit application and demolition

At this stage, our experienced Pre-Site Coordinator will apply for and prepare the building permit, whilst guiding you on the final construction plan for you to sign off. You will then need to arrange for your house to be demolished before we begin construction.

10) Construction

And so the rebuild begins! Our highly skilled construction team will now begin building your forever home. Your Site Manager will be in touch with you regularly to keep you updated on the progress of your build, so you can sit back and relax while your dream becomes a reality.
