About The Building Process with Bennett Homes

1. Colour Consults and Selections

To keep the selection process as stress-free as possible, we have created a 3-week colour consultation program to ensure you have time to make all choices required. You’ll have several meetings over these weeks to choose cladding, flooring, plumbing, paint colours, kitchen design, and much more! This can be overwhelming, but our Sales Consultants are there every step of the way to help guide you.

2. Building Consent

Once your final selections have been made and your plans have been signed off on, our team will lodge your plans for consent with the council for processing to issue consent within 20 working days. When the consent has been issued, the building schedule begins and the materials are ordered! At Bennett Homes, we prioritise a seamless and efficient journey from planning to construction.

3. Buildertrend

Learn how to use our project management platform, Buildertrend. With Buildertrend you’ll gain exclusive access to real-time progress updates and photos of your build, keeping you constantly in the loop. Additionally, you can easily request variations and seamlessly communicate with our dedicated team, ensuring all your needs and changes are addressed promptly. Experience the power of efficient project management with the user-friendly interface Buildertrend, where you’ll see your vision come to life.

4. The Build

Your build begins! You will meet your Site Manager who ensures the build remains on schedule and works alongside our teams of trusted contractors. You will see new site photos uploaded to BuilderTrend of your home’s progress along the way. Important dates during the build include the electrical walkthrough (choosing electrical fitting placements with your Site Manager), the landscape meeting (choosing concrete and landscape placements), and the final handover with your Bennett Homes team members!

5. The Final Handover

Once your new home has been completed and the Code Compliance Certificate (CCC) has been obtained, the project is ready for final handover. Your Salesperson & Site Manager will meet with you on-site to take you through the final handover process. This process includes a comprehensive walk-thru of the home, tutorials on how to use appliances and/or your air conditioning unit, handing over important documents and manuals relating to the build, and the keys to your new home so you can start your next chapter!
