Engage the experts at David Reid ACT in your knock down rebuild, guiding the
process from start to finish
Current house is no longer meeting needs but don’t want to relocate?
Reluctant to sell and pay all the fees, stamp duty and agent costs?
Dread the idea of constantly renovating your home and it still not being just right?
Like the idea of knock down rebuild but unsure how it would work?
Many homeowners find themselves in the position of realising their home really isn’t suitable for their current circumstances anymore. Whether it’s an older home that is quite simply run down and tired, an expanding family that needs more space or just a layout that isn’t working anymore, there are many reasons why homeowners reach that conclusion.
For most, they simply sell up and move somewhere new. But what do you do if you love the street you live on? The area? The convenience of schools and amenities close by? Not to mention the fees, charges, stamp duty and real estate costs associated with buying and selling.
The solution is knockdown and rebuild!
You don’t have to settle for less or make compromises that are inherent with renovating. With David Reid ACT we will help you every step of the way with your knock down and rebuild, which includes:
- carefully assessing your block of land and discuss its possibilities with you
- working with you to understand how you want to live and how to choose your ideal home
- providing transparent quotes
- organising approvals and permits for your new home
- guaranteeing your construction timeframe
WHY CHOOSE DAVID REID HOMES A.C.T FOR YOUR KNOCK DOWN REBUILD?
At David Reid Homes ACT we put you first. We work with you during a one-hour consultation to clarify your vision for your knock down rebuild. The consultation includes getting an understanding your lifestyle requirements, your block of land and outlining the cost-effective building options available to you. After this consultation, we will be able to provide you with an estimate of the costs involved for the different building options you’re interested in. This initial consultation helps you put things in perspective and gives you an idea of what can be achieved.
Manage Certifications, Permits & Approvals
Say goodbye to excessive paperwork by engaging David Reid Homes ACT. We’ll ensure that you’ll meet council regulations and avoid any paperwork errors which can cause serious delays. All our designs are created with council regulations in mind, taking the pressure off you by preparing and lodging the necessary applications with your local council. We will work through any complications with your particular block and will manage the approval process for your existing home to be demolished. Senior management will undertake the ongoing monitoring of the build to manage build progress and to meet timeframes and budget.
The timing for a knock down and rebuild project can vary depending on how long it takes to obtain necessary council demolition and building permits. Once all the necessary permits have been obtained, demolition can be carried out. All services such as electricity, drainage, gas and water supply, not only have to be disconnected but abolished. This means, for example, the removal of the electricity and gas meter. If your home requires asbestos removal, the demolisher will obtain a certificate to ensure its safe removal in accordance with ACT requirements. This is all taken care of for you, meaning less stress!
Design & Planning Rebuild
Drawing inspiration from your ideas and a wide range of successful existing concepts we work with you to create a unique architectural design that complements your existing block. We want you to love living in your new home for many years to come so this process is collaborative to ensure that your design is personalised to your individual requirements.
