Design Brief

The initial stage is where your requirements are reviewed with your design brief and budget being established. This is a crucial part of the process where our design team will listen to your family and lifestyle needs to really understand your ‘vision’.

Design Concept & Costing

Our design team, having prepared a design concept based on the initial appraisal, will present you with a structured floor layout, elevations and 3D perspectives (computer images that enable you to visualise the finished product), and a detailed cost estimate.

Plan & Contract Documentation

Plans are then prepared for lodgement into council with full working drawings (inclusive of engineers details) as required by the relevant department. Contract documentation is finalised which specifies the timelines of construction and payment milestones.

Contract Signing

Once this documentation has been finalised and a building permit has been approved through council, final contracts are signed and executed by all parties.

Commencement On-site

The construction team is then mobilised and trades will commence site works and construction of your home.


Dorrington Homes is also able to provide a competitive price on tendered projects. Our experienced team can manage the tender process and have experience in lodging proposals to the quality expected by architects and design teams.
