Construction: Now is the time for Henley’s Construction team to take the lead, and do what we do best.
The next section will define the main stages of construction for you, and outlines some of the things which may take place during each stage.
Base Stage: Your block of land will be prepped and ready to build on, with temporary fencing installed, site excavation, and underground connections laid. Base stage is complete once the concrete slab is poured.
Upon completion of base stage, a 10% progress payment is due.
Frame Stage: This is when your dream home really starts to come to life. All walls are marked out in accordance with your final drawings, and construction of wall, windows and door frames, and roof trusses begin.
Frame stage is complete once the frame is completed, inspected, and approved by a qualified Building Surveyor.
Upon completion of frame stage, a 15% progress payment is due.
Lock Up Stage: This is a significant milestone as it’s when we’re able to effectively ‘lock up’ your home. Brickwork, wall cladding, roofing, and insulation are all installed. Temporary external doors may be hung and fixed into position in order to ensure the security of your home.
Upon completion of lock up stage, a 35% progress payment is due.
Fixing Stage: This is where we begin fixing everything into position. We will complete all internal plaster, architraves and skirts, and cabinets and cupboards to your kitchen.
Upon completion of fixing stage, a 25% progress payment is due.
Fit Off Stage: The focus shifts to the inside of your home during this stage, and you will see your colour selections come to life. Whilst we paint your home, we will install tiles, benchtops, shower screens, mirrors, and door furniture. We will fit off all plumbing and electrical connections.
Practical Completion Inspection (PCI Stage): Move-in day is soon approaching! Your Construction Administrator will book in your New Home Presentation two weeks ahead of the completion of your home. On this day, you will meet with a Henley Representative who will present your new home to you demonstrating its features and functions. From the date of your New Home Presentation, please allow up to 14 days to all items to be completed for Settlement. You will then be able to complete Settlement from that date.
Upon completion of your home, the final progress payment of 12% is due, along with any additional variations ordered.
Congratulations! Your brand new Henley home is complete and ready for you to move in!
