The design of your new home is heavily influenced by the characteristics of the block of land it will be built on. Before we can begin on designing your floor plan with you, it is essential for us to understand the site. During this inspection, we will assess various factors that will shape the design process.
ANSA Homes will evaluate the gradient of the slope, determining how the land is falling and any potential challenges or opportunities it presents for your design.
Additionally, we will consider the orientation of the block, taking into account the position of the sun and how it can be leveraged for natural lighting and energy efficiency.
“If you don’t fully understand your site costs up front you can be locked in to a contract and later on be hit with additional costs that other builders did not factor into their initial tender price… ”
We also investigate the location of services on the property, such as water, electricity, and sewage lines. All of this information is crucial for planning the placement of utilities within your design.
3.Council + Planning Restrictions
We then take into consideration any restrictions or regulations that apply to the block of land. This includes zoning requirements, setback regulations, height restrictions, or any other local guidelines that may impact the design possibilities of your home.
There are many houses and blocks of land that are affected by some sort of restriction – flooding, bushfire, easement, land in conservation areas – and with those restrictions there tends to be a lot of unanswered questions.
Our consultants have direct access to industry experts to help decipher, up front, what information will be required and the information you need to know when designing your home so you can make informed decisions about your home and the placement of it on your block.
Understanding all of this information is crucial upfront and can mean the difference in tens of thousands, and sometimes hundreds of thousands, of dollars in your final tender price. If you don’t fully understand your site costs up front you can be locked in to a contract and later on be hit with additional costs that other builders did not factor into their initial tender price.
By thoroughly examining these factors, your ANSA design consultant and compliance expert can gain a comprehensive understanding of your site and its constraints, allowing them to create a design with you that maximises the potential of your land while adhering to regulations and also meeting your design requirements.
