STEP BY STEP DESIGN AND BUILDING PROCESS

LEAP Constructions |Designer Homes Brisbane

As quality custom builders, we realise the importance of your project to you. We know that you want to know how the building process works from start to finish and all the details in between. Because of this, we provide you with a step by step design and building process that helps outline for you each stage of the building process whilst also providing you with a building design process checklist. Our process outlines from the first contact to the first meeting to the beginning of on-site construction, followed by the building stages.  Our step by step design and building process is flexible as we understand that you may already have plans/design, just contact us if you have any questions and we shall see how we can help you best.
