Why is site evaluation important?

Site evaluation is a 'snap shot' of your land. It let us determine a number of factors that may influence the development. More importantly, we do it early in the process of designing and adjusting your duplex, avoiding nasty surprises later down the track.

All the documents that we produce as a part of site evaluation are yours, even if you decide not to proceed with the development. Some of them, especially the survey and the soil test report are useful regardless of what and when in the future you decide to build on your land.

Getting closely acquainted with your land lets us offer you a fixed price construction contract. For the first time a small developer is being offered certainty when it comes to establishing the full cost of construction.
