5 Easy Steps for building your new home

The ongoing reputation of the Lucas Morris Homes name is your guarantee of design integrity – attention to detail and value that comes with every build.

For added peace of mind, the Lucas Morris Homes team have a simplified pre-contract process for each step of the way so that you can feel involved throughout your project’s design and development. A proven five-stage Englehart Group Design process details necessary information for building your dream home:

1. Your New Home Consultation
Major design parameters and site conditions are discussed. Budget objectives are established and an overview of Lucas Morris’s services including design and the management process. A Preliminary Agreement is entered into.

2. General Review
This is where a Site Analysis takes place and consideration is given to site context including slope, views, orientation and adjoining properties. Client expectations versus likely costs are analysed and clients are advised of the feasibility outcome and compliance with Rescode and planning zone requirements.

3. Sketch Plan and Elevation
Design Meeting is held which includes qualifications of concept, room sizes, scope of works and major specification requirements. This is followed by presentation of initial sketch plan, elevation (example below) and estimate of likely costs.

4. Your new Home Contract
A Small Works Contract is entered into covering administration associated with working drawings, specification, development and other contract documentation. When the working drawings are ready for evaluation, selection meetings are arranged to review finishes, design and other services. Engineering is commenced and the specification incorporating the final client selections are completed.

5. The Lucas Morris Build Contract
Following qualification of selections and site costings, the final New Homes Contract is presented including specification, working drawings, engineering and other associated documents. The New Homes Contract is signed.
