Getting Started on Your Renovation Project

The process of renovating your home is straightforward, and at IQ Renovations we always keep our clients completely involved in every stage of our building process.

Stage 1 | The Design Process

The IQ Construction team work closely with you during initial site inspections and together we’ll create stunning concepts for your renovation. In line with your budget and timescale, we’ll create your renovation design that will suit your family and your living space. We can also create 3D models so you can visualise the design concept more easily. Once you’re happy with the design, a preliminary plans agreement is signed and we’re ready to get started on your renovation.

Stage 2 | Council Approval

Once you have approved the design, we draft up the planning documentation and working drawings and submit them to your local council on your behalf. This ensures we obtain the necessary planning approval where required.

Stage 3 | Construction Documentation and Certificates

As soon at the council has approved your plans, we work directly with the engineers and certification professionals to arrange the relevant documentation and construction certificates for your renovation project. Once this is in place, HIA contracts are developed and presented to you for final approval/authority to proceed.

Stage 4 | Demolition and Construction

With the building permit in place, IQ Renovations start work on demolishing areas of your property where necessary, preparing the existing dwelling for construction before proceeding with the construction phase.

Stage 5 | Lock Up

At this stage the renovation is water tight and secure, and we are about to start working to install the fixtures and fittings for your new extension. At this part of the renovation the doors, external cladding, windows and roof are all complete and the finer details are now added.

Stage 6 | Handover

When our work on your renovation is completed as per our contract, the property will be inspected and certifiers will sign off on the renovation where necessary.

Then it’s all yours! Sit back and relax in your newly renovated home.
