Yes! We have a reputation for being the go-to builder for sloping blocks and difficult sites. When approaching a sloping site, our team of experts work with the natural gradient of the land to maximise potential views, breezes, and natural light.
Of course! With block sizes on the decline, we create home designs to suit narrow blocks. We create a home design for blocks ranging from 5.7 metres all the way to 29.27 metres.
Yes, we have extensive experience with building in flood-affected areas. We can create a custom home design that is suitable for flood-prone areas. We will take the building materials, the foundation, and the flood clearance level into account to mitigate any damage to the house in the unfortunate event of a flood.
Yes, we can build from BAL 12.5 (low-risk areas) through to bush fire flame zones. We are fully equipped with the knowledge and experience to protect your home in the event of a bushfire and ensure your new home build meets the necessary complying requirements.
The techniques to build a split-level house are more complex than a standard one-storey or two-storey home build as they often require additional foundation work. However, a sloping block of land is generally less expensive than a flat block, so what you save in the land purchase can often be used to create a more unique and interesting home.
