Duplex building process

The team at Destin Constructions will guide you through every step of the way. We’ve put together a user’s guide to give you a little insight into the timeline for a typical home build.

STAGE 1 : Select Your Home


This is the beginning of your journey and our experienced and helpful new home consultants specialise in understanding your needs so they can deliver the right solution for you.

STAGE 2 : Requesting a Tender


During this stage we will spend the time with you to understand all tender inclusions. This enables us to provide one final and fixed price up front, inclusive of all your requirements throughout the build.

STAGE 3 : Drawings and Contracts


This is the inspiring part when you see your vision begin to come to life. At this stage you will be assigned a pre-construction administrator who will work with you throughout the process. They will act as your dedicated build liaison, right up to the time we start building your home. After your exterior selections, we prepare detailed plans of your chosen home design and façade in readiness for the next stage.


Upon signing off your final home plan drawings (Submission Plans) we prepare all necessary paperwork for lodgement through council or a private certifier.


After sign-off, we prepare your building contract documentation for you to sign prior to lodgment to council or a private certifier.

STAGE 4 : Selections and Approvals


This is one of the most exciting stages where you will meet your expert colour and electrical consultants to help you choose the interior finishes that will work best in your new home.


This is where your pre-construction administrator will do all the hard work for you and will follow up and advise when approvals are received from all external parties.


The final step in this process is the review. This is where we guide you through all the final details to ensure everything is clear and understood by all parties.

STAGE 5 : Construction


Your official site construction will begin, from the laying of your slab to the completion of your home. At this point you will meet your site manager who will take care of all the aspects of your build and keep you informed along the way.

STAGE 6 : Handover


We will walk through a personal inspection of your new home. Your site manager will go over all required information and talk you through everything you need to know.


We complete a final inspection to ensure all items in your walk-through checklist have been addressed.


Once you submit your list your warranty manager will visit you at your home to ensure that everything is delivering on your expectations and to the Destin Constructions
quality standard.
