Construction - How it Works


What do I need to do?
  • Now that you have completed all your selections you can relax and enjoy the building process.
  • The stamped plans and Council approval will be forwarded to your lending authority. They will issue a commencement letter stating permission for Camelot Homes to commence construction.
How do progress payments work?

The progress payments are clearly defined in the building contract with a building stage and amount.  Once the designated stage has been completed, Camelot Homes will issue you with an invoice.

Who keeps an eye on quality control?
  • Upon commencement of construction, you will be introduced to our Construction Supervisor. Our Construction Supervisor will have an active presence onsite to ensure our quality control systems are implemented and maintained.
  • We collaborate with the best talents in the building industry, capping the number of homes built per year to maintain the highest levels of service and quality control
  • The quality control systems that we have in place at Camelot Homes distinguishes us from many other builders. A custom built home has numerous components which involve many different tradesmen, materials and finishes. To assist in managing this process, we have researched, developed and tested a detailed quality control checklist throughout the entire building process. This quality control system is in action for the duration of the build and ensures that quality measures are maintained.

Am I allowed access to the site?
  • Of course you can. But for security and safety reasons, the site will be fenced for most of the construction. We can arrange for you to access the site with a representative of Camelot Homes. We will also be available for you if there are any instances when you feel a site meeting is necessary.
  • There will be critical stage inspections during the build where your attendance is required. This will be at stages of the build where we have check measures or walk through checks.
It’s not what I expected, can I make changes?
  • Most definitely! Our flexibility and communication is what we are renowned for.
  • Small changes like finishes or fittings all can be accommodated during the build. Whilst its preferred that all decisions are made well in advance, sometimes things don’t turn out exactly how the client expected. Within reason, we can change anything.
  • We will quote the costs associated for the changes before we do them and action them as soon as you give the word.

MAJOR CHANGES TO THE FLOOR PLAN  & ELEVATIONS

  • We can make larger more structural changes as well. This will generally involve going back to  council to make an application for the changes.
  • We will guide you through this process to achieve the outcome you want.
  • These sorts of changes will require significant changes to the cost of the home. We will transparent and quote all costs before they are undertaken.
When will our new home be finished?
  • The contract will provide you with an estimate of how long the construction time will take for your home. Generally, it is an over-estimate and we endeavour to complete your new home prior to the estimated date in the contract.
  • As we get closer to completion you will be given a hand over date.
  • Keep in mind if you make lots of changes during the build, the completion date will be affected.
