Elevate Architectural Transportables - step by step process...
At Elevate we will work with you to come up with the best possible design based off one of our existing designs or come up with something totally new. We'll take care of the Council process and construct the building in our Cambridge yard ready for transport to your new site.
Here's the process:
Make contact with the team at Elevate to discuss the options and come and see the design and quality we have to offer. We'll also discuss your specific project requirements and if a transportable building is a viable option for you and your site.
Discuss your design with us, are you happy with one of our existing plans, maybe you'd like to make some minor changes or do you want a bespoke design of your own?
A preliminary design and estimate can be put together to ensure we can achieve what you are after and that it will be within budget. At this stage we may ask for a 'letter of intent' to be signed which clarifies any costs which may be involved in providing this service.
A finalised design and fixed price will be provided to you based on the completed design. At this stage we'd also discuss whether you'd like us to take care of the onsite Building Consent and possible Resource Consent process as well. This information could then be used by you to source pricing from local tradespeople and suppliers for the required onsite works such as decks, baseboards, landscaping and the service connections such as wastewater, stormwater and power.
This work would be invoiced as an additional service and is totally up to you. Please note that the Building Consent for the building itself is already included in the cost of the building, it is simply the onsite Building Consent that would need to be completed.
Sort the documents. Once you are happy with everything then together we can sign the required documents and get started! When the contract is signed we can finalise the construction drawings and documentation and make the consent application to Council.
You are not alone! The whole philosophy behind Elevate Architectural Transportables is to bring you affordable quality architecture and make the process as easy as possible. While we won't manage the onsite process we have numerous years of experience in the architectural and construction industry so together we can work it out and point you in the right direction.
