The Design Process

The first step in the process is meeting the architect to establish a design brief. This involves visiting the site and outlining the vision you have for your dream home. To ensure in advance designs are consistent with regulations, we consult with the local council and assess relevant authority regulations. We then prepare CAD architectural schematic design drawings, including floor plans and select elevation plans. This is presented to you by the architect, and any alterations are made in response to feedback. The designs can then be presented as a virtual reality walkthrough session with the structural engineer, architect, and builder, where it is possible to visualise the home as a multi-dimensional structure. Fine-tuning is then made for the final design.

You have the option to work with our interior designer who provides sessions to thoughtfully select colour palettes, paints, joinery, benchtops, splashbacks, tiles, fittings and fixtures, and floor coverings to ensure your home is customised true to your unique style and aesthetic. By working with Construct Melbourne from the design phase, you will enjoy exclusive access to our preferred suppliers for lighting, joinery, fixtures, and fittings. This can be extremely helpful for those needing assistance to bring their vision to life and gaining expert tips for choosing complementary features.
