The Process

We, at Brassington Constructions, have always described what we do as a ‘process’.

1. First meeting and site inspection

Stephen, our Managing Director and supervisor, will organise a time agreeable to your schedule, to meet you, where possible on site, to discuss your needs and hear your expectations.  At this meeting he will listen to you and endeavour to gain a more intimate understanding of what you want. He will be able to advise you and will start to formulate a plan for your project.  If you should have existing plans or have people you are especially looking to work with, we will be happy to work with them too.

2. Quotation

After your initial meeting with Stephen, he will begin to develop a quotation for you.  In this quote he will not only include costing for the service he provides, but will consider other elements such as design, gaining council approval and engineering (as required).  It is our policy at Brassington Constructions, to present you with a clear, up front budgets.  We do not inflate fees on external services such as designers and engineering.  We encourage you to seek other quotes for peace of mind.  When you are satisfied with the quotation, we will invite you to sign a HIA approved contract, the contract will include a mutually agreeable plan for progress payments and work schedule.  Allowances are made at this stage for basic selections for bathrooms etc, adjustments may have to made to quotes at a later time, when clients have made their product selections.  When considering selections at the time of quoting, pricing allows for a good quality, basic builders range of products.  We have accounts at various trade outlets for you to choose from.  Alternatively, you can opt to source your own selections and your quote will be amended accordingly.

3. Approvals

Once we have signed a contract, the ‘planning’ stage of the project will begin.  This is where we will work with the design team, engineers and council.  This may not be necessary for every project.  At this stage, it is customary to begin making any selections for bathrooms, kitchens and cabinetry, some items may take some weeks to manufacture and order.

4. Construction

Now that we have all the necessary approvals, construction begins!  Stephen will be on site everyday, overseeing each facet of the construction.  He will bring in small, specialised teams,  teams that we have worked with on many projects.  At Brassington Constructions, we have set a certain level of quality and we only invest in trades that can meet our high standards.  You will have access to Stephen at any time and he will hold regular meetings with you to keep you up to date and informed at all times. 

5. Handover

On completion of the project, we will meet with you and you will be presented with any product information, warranties as well as any certificates required and finally,  a notice of completion.
