Ecoliv Ventnor Project 2

9 Steps to Sustainable Living

The Ecoliv Process

Working with you to create your dream home or commercial space, our Ecoliv team believes in open communication, transparency and efficiency – we keep you in the loop. Below is a very quick overview of our build process which we call the 9 Steps to Sustainable Living.

Step 1.

Preliminary Estimate Stage

Our Ecoliv team connects with you via phone or email to begin initial project discussions. You complete a Client Design Brief, establishing the criteria for your project along with your Site Title Report outlining orientation and constraints. We then provide a preliminary estimate which includes all the foreseeable project costs.

Step 2.

Preliminary Design Stage

Upon engagement as your project designer, Ecoliv conducts a site visit and interprets your Client Design Brief into a site-sensitive preliminary design. At this stage, we provide initial drawings and you select your exterior materials and façade option.

Step 3.

Town Planning / Development Approval Stage

Ecoliv obtains development and town planning approval (if applicable).

Step 4.

Contract Stage

Interior design and materials selection are confirmed including joinery, electrical, colours, fixtures and fittings. Contract documents are prepared comprising detailed drawings, project specifications and HIA Contracts ready for signing.

Step 5.

Building Permit Stage

Ecoliv obtains a building permit and the project is programmed into our construction schedule.

Step 6.

Construction Stage

Construction begins at our controlled construction facility. You’re welcome to visit your home to view progress of the build.

Step 7.

Delivery Stage

Your Ecoliv building is delivered to your site, connected and any onsite works such as decking is commenced.

Step 8.

Handover Stage

Final completion and handover - we provide you with our HIA Home Owners Warranty and the keys to your new home.

Step 9.

You live happily ever after

Ecoliv’s 3 Month Rectification Warranty and 7 Year Builders Warranty provide you with peace of mind for years ahead.
