Fostering Relationships, Crafting Architectural Homes

Embarking on the journey of building a new home or undertaking a major renovation in Tauranga is not just an investment in bricks and mortar; it’s an investment in a relationship. Selecting the right builder is akin to starting a new partnership, one that requires honesty, understanding, and a mutual commitment to success. At Bespoke Construct, we’ve realized through experience that while pricing is a significant factor, the final decision often hinges more on the strength of the relationship rather than just the cost.

The Importance of a Site Visit

At Bespoke Construct, we cherish the opportunity to be part of this significant phase in your life. That’s why we suggest starting with a site visit. This initial meeting isn’t just a formal procedure; it’s a chance for both parties to interact personally, understand each other’s communication styles, and establish a rapport. Remember, the design and build process is a journey – it should be enjoyable and collaborative.

Understanding your site is crucial. It allows us to share in your excitement and contribute practical insights to your design ideas. If you’re still searching for a designer, our strong industry relationships can help you find the perfect match. And if you already have a design, a site visit is an excellent opportunity for us to discuss it with you and your designer, offering valuable insights into the initial stages of the process.

Client Testimonials and Referrals: The Heart of Our Reputation

Word of mouth, referrals, and industry awards play a pivotal role in the Tauranga building scene. Our work is often sourced from such referrals, bolstered by our award-winning reputation. Bespoke Construct isn’t just another group builder; each project is personal to us. Our clients often share that:

Navigating the Complexities of Building

Building is a complex undertaking, and we spend considerable time helping clients understand the process. Here are some common questions we address:

1. When to involve a builder? The right time to involve a builder varies. While some clients prefer to handle the planning and design themselves, others find it beneficial to involve the builder early on, especially for renovations. A builder’s vision and experience can alleviate stress and set a positive tone for the project.

2. Will I need a Building Consent? Most building and renovation work requires council consent, though some types of work can be exempt if undertaken by a licensed building practitioner.

3. Do I need to use a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP)? For certain ‘restricted’ projects, an LBP is necessary. These professionals are essential for work involving the building structure and weather tightness, and only they can complete the necessary record of work for council files.

4. Does my builder need to be a member of a Building Association? While not mandatory, using a builder who is a member of a respected association like CBANZ (Certified Builders of New Zealand) ensures they are trade-qualified, well-referenced, and continually upskilling.

5. Do you follow a documented building process? Yes, at Bespoke Construct, we follow a documented process for our building projects, which is detailed in our 6C Process.

Choosing a builder in Tauranga goes beyond comparing quotes and evaluating technical skills. It’s about building a relationship founded on trust, communication, and a shared vision. At Bespoke Construct, we understand the importance of this relationship and are committed to making your building experience as fulfilling and enjoyable as the final result.
