The Renovation Process

  1. Work out your budget
  2. Contact Buildingworks and our project managers will visit site to talk through your ideas. We can offer suggestions for cost saving and also provide a very high level approximate cost for your project, generally based on sqm.
  3. If needed, Buildingworks can arrange a site meeting with an architect so that concept plans can be drawn up.
  4. An approximate price can then be provided before the project proceeds further.
  5. When the approximate price is approved the plan can be finalised to include more detail in the design*.
  6. Engineers may need to be consulted such as geotech (ground condition) and structural design*
  7. Detailed plans are submitted to Council for approval and priced by Buildingworks.*
  8. Project scope is finalised and costs are approved with customer.
  9. Buildingworks contract signed and a start date planned (if project over $30,000 inc gst).
  10. Builldingworks starts on site!

*Please note not all projects require an architect, engineer or council consents.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Our Clients Are Saying

Initially I found it hard to find builders from Whangarei, due to us living in Auckland. I chanced upon the Buildingworks website. It was informative, clean and easy to navigate. Once I contacted them they replied instantly and because of this I went for Brendon and his team.

Although not a huge job by their standards, Buildingworks were professional, accommodating and sensitive to my Mum’s needs.  The work was a high quality and Brendon gave us progress reports at every opportunity.  Brendon is approachable, intuitive and a down to earth individual.  His patience in seeing things through with the upmost care and quality left us feeling good that we had made the right decision to go with his company.

All in all, Buildingworks are dependable, trustworthy and they listen.  I trust their workmanship and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to prospective clients.  I am extremely happy with Brendon and his team and will definitely use them again.
