The ins and outs of starting your renovation or new house build


By Warren Jones, Innovative Design and Build Group


Starting your building project takes a lot of time and energy, and there’s always an element of “have I chosen the right materials?” for the look that you are trying to achieve. Once you have nailed down the overall look and feel of your project, you need to consider the cost element. Have you designed something that is potentially out of your budget?


This is where choosing a great team to take you through the process is invaluable.


At Innovative Design and Build Group, we believe in having a clear idea of what the client wants from the outset. It may be something as simple as identifying a layout that you find appealing, or even elements of a plan you’d like to incorporate into your building design. Pictures or even a selection of materials gives us (the designers) a better idea of what you envisage your finished build to look like.


Having a budget in mind is always helpful. Providing your builder with a budget prior to the design stage ensures that we can all work together to achieve your goal within your budget. If situations arise where your budget will be blown out, we can definitely give advice on how to best keep within your budget while still delivery an amazing end result for you as the client. With a clear idea of your budget we can help you achieve those high-end finishes within your price range.


The next step is to start the drafting and design process. This is where the magic happens, and you will start to see the build or renovation really come to life. Innovative Design and Build has established relationships and works alongside some amazing Town Planners, Certifiers and Engineers to ensure that your project will be completed to the highest standard, without any tricky surprises along the way.


Once materials, fixtures and fittings are selected we will then get to the final costings. From there, we find there are very few variables on the final quote. While making these final decisions for your house can be overwhelming at times, have no fear – we work alongside some of the best interior and exterior design experts that will work alongside us to really bring your vision to life. Ensuring your colour scheme, fittings and overall vibe of your project flows seamlessly from room to room.


With all this ticked off and the quote approved, we are ready to hit the ground running and get started on bringing your dreams to reality.
