Consultation and Designing
Designing is a very crucial stage of every foundation. We listen to your family’s requirements and ask you to provide the land dimensions. Based on the provided information and local Council’s guidelines, we give you the initial concept plan and then organise another meeting with you and amend the plans to meet your family’s requirements.
After receiving an initial deposit, we organise the soil testing and preliminary footing report.
