As vested partners in your building experience, we want you to understand every stage of the journey.
Our process is not like any other you will find among other luxury home builders . Our thorough and detailed approach from the outset ensures the most accurate pricing and transparency along your new home build journey.
We are supported by a team of professional consultants, carpenters and subcontractor trades who are committed to our philosophy of delivering exceptional workmanship.
When you entrust the construction of your new home to us, expect a completely transparent process backed up by outstanding customer service.
The initial meeting with one of our New Home Consultants ensures your needs and desires are understood prior to work commencing on your new home.
Each project and site is unique. If you have land, your consultant will visit your block, detail your new home assessment, budgets and requirements, a nd discuss the process our luxury home builds follow. If you are seeking land, our team can help secure the perfect block for you.
Initial plans and costings are presented and you are introduced to your personal Client Services Manager who will assist you through the remainder of your Kalka experience.
To firm up the final contract and price, our interior design team take you through the colour selection and design process. You will have the opportunity to select all of the colours, finishes and fixtures for your new home.
After all amendments have been finalised your contract plans will be completed.
After this extended consultation phase you will have final drawings, colour selections, upgrades (if selected), time-frames and your final contract price.
This stage of your journey marks the beginning of your construction process w here we bring your new home design to life. Here your final contract is completed and signed and we receive your full 5% deposit. Council applications are then lodged, after which your final construction drawings will be complete and all products ordered.
In order for your build to begin the final Building Approval and Authority to Commence Construction are received. Construction will then commence within 20 working days.
At this stage in the process, you will meet your Site Supervisor who will oversee t he entire construction of your home. During this meeting, your Supervisor will outline the personalised construction program and be available to discuss the process and any questions you may have.
The following earth and site work stages represent the key milestones of your HIA (Housing Institute of Australia) contract and are outlined in the personalised construction program your supervisor will present you with.
If the construction of your home includes a pool, we will excavate the site, then supply and install the concrete pool shell at this stage.
Prior to pouring the house slab, concrete piers and footings are first supplied and installed.
Once we complete the enclosed stage, all fascia and your roof can then be installed. All electrical pre-wiring and initial plumbing and pipework will also be completed at this stage.
At this stage of the construction process, your home’s frame and external wall cladding are fixed.
All the internal components of your new home, including architraves, cabinets, doors, cornices, and shower trays are fitted and fixed in position.
In compliance with your HIA contract, at practical completion all plans and specifications—including all statutory requirements to the building work—are complete.
Your Site Supervisor will maintain a regular dialogue with you throughout the process to keep you up-to-date. Additionally, throughout the journey of your build with Kalka, your Client Services Manager will provide you with weekly progress reports and photo updates.
Upon completion of the construction program, you will be met on site by your Site Supervisor for the near completion and handover meeting. Any concerns raised here will be promptly rectified prior to your official handover.
Welcome to your new home. We will meet you at your new home for the official handover where you will receive your keys and final certifications.
We are dedicated to customer service, and our team works to ensure you are completely satisfied with your investment long after handover. We offer twelve month maintenance inspections along with six years structural warranty.
