Adlington’s Unique Process

We understand that building or renovating a home is a significant investment and an exciting journey. That’s why we have developed a comprehensive process to guide our clients every step of the way. Our process ensures that your project is executed smoothly, efficiently, and to the highest standards. Let’s take a closer look at each step.

1. Initial Contact

The first step is reaching out to us to express your interest in building or renovating your dream home. We will promptly respond and schedule an initial consultation to discuss your ideas, requirements, and budget. This step allows us to understand your vision and establish a solid overview of the project.

2. Meeting

Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, we will arrange a site meeting to assess the location and gather essential information. This step enables us to evaluate the site's suitability, identify any potential challenges, and provide you with expert advice on design and construction possibilities.

3. Preliminary Budget

We believe in transparency and ensuring that our clients have a realistic understanding of the financial aspects of their project. Our team will work closely with you to develop a preliminary budget that aligns with your vision and financial capabilities. Getting clear on this allows you to make informed decisions and avoid any unexpected financial surprises.

4. Project Plans

With the preliminary budget in place, our qualified designers will bring your vision to life through detailed project plans. Using the latest technology, we will create 3D renders that allow you to visualize your dream home before construction begins. This step ensures that all your ideas are incorporated and that the design meets your expectations.

5. Pricing

Once the project plans are finalised, we will provide you with a comprehensive and transparent pricing proposal. Our experienced team will break down the costs, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of where your investment is going. This step allows you to make any necessary adjustments to the design or materials to align with your budget.

6. Contract and Permits

Before construction can commence, we will prepare a detailed contract that outlines all the agreed-upon terms and conditions. We will also handle all the necessary permits and approvals required for your project. This step ensures that all legal and regulatory requirements are met, giving you peace of mind throughout the construction process.

7. Construction

With all the necessary paperwork in place, our team of skilled tradesmen will bring your dream home to life. We will provide regular updates and maintain open lines of communication, ensuring that you are informed of the progress at every phase. Our dedicated client portal will give you 24/7 access to all aspects of your project, allowing you to track the construction process conveniently.

8. Project Handover

Once construction is complete, we will conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that every detail meets our high standards of quality. We will then hand over the keys to your dream home, accompanied by all the necessary documentation and warranties. This step marks the culmination of our journey together and the beginning of your new chapter in your dream home.

By following this unique process we aim to provide you with a seamless and enjoyable experience. Our process is designed to keep you informed, involved, and in control every step of the way.
