Subdividing and Building a New House Hampton East

We recently completed a significant project in Hampton East area: subdividing an existing property and constructing a new two-storey house. This endeavor not only highlights our expertise but also reflects our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Here, we outline the stages of this successful project.

Planning Stage: Subdivision and Planning

The initial phase of the project involved meticulous planning and coordination with local authorities to secure the necessary approvals for subdivision. This step is crucial as it sets the foundation for the entire construction process. Our team at Segalbuild conducted thorough site assessments and engaged in consultations with surveyors and town planners to ensure compliance with Melbourne’s stringent zoning laws and building regulations. We meticulously prepared and submitted all required documentation, including site plans, design blueprints, to the City of Bayside Council.

Our planning team worked closely with the client to understand their vision and requirements, ensuring that the new dwelling would not only meet their expectations but also blend seamlessly with the existing neighborhood aesthetic. This involved detailed discussions about the layout, design elements, and sustainable features that would be incorporated into the new two-storey house.

Base Stage: Footings & Foundations

With the necessary permits in place, we moved on to the base stage, where we laid the footings and foundations. This stage is pivotal in ensuring the structural integrity of the building. Our experienced engineers and construction crew employed advanced techniques and high-quality materials to establish a solid foundation. The soil conditions were analyzed, and appropriate measures were taken to address any challenges such as soil reactivity or water drainage issues.

The footings were precisely laid out, followed by the construction of robust concrete foundations. We ensured that all foundation work was completed in accordance with Australian Standards (AS 2870), providing a stable base for the subsequent stages of construction. Regular inspections and quality checks were conducted to ensure that the foundation work met our rigorous standards.

Frame Stage: Framework

Once the foundations were set, the frame stage commenced. This involved the construction of the structural framework of the house. Our skilled carpenters erected the timber frame with precision, following the design specifications to the letter. The framework included all essential structural components such as walls, floors, and roof trusses.

During this stage, we also installed the necessary bracing and tie-downs to enhance the building’s resistance to wind and seismic forces. The use of high-quality, treated timber ensured durability and longevity. Our team coordinated closely with structural engineers to ensure that the frame was both robust and compliant with Australian building codes (AS 1684). Regular site inspections and certifications were obtained to verify the integrity of the framework.

Lock-up Stage: Brickwork & Lock-up

The lock-up stage marked a significant milestone in the project. It involved the completion of external brickwork and securing the house with doors and windows. Our bricklayers meticulously crafted the external walls using premium-quality bricks that not only provided structural support but also enhanced the aesthetic appeal of the house.

In addition to brickwork, we installed high-performance windows and doors, ensuring that the house was weather-tight and secure. This stage also included the installation of the roof, gutters, and downpipes. We utilized tiled roofing materials, known for their durability and resistance to harsh Australian sun conditions. The lock-up stage concluded with a thorough inspection to ensure that all elements were properly installed and met our stringent quality standards.

Fixing Stage: Internal & External Finishes

The fixing stage focused on both internal and external finishes, transforming the structural shell into a livable home. Inside the house, our team installed plasterboard walls, ceilings, and internal doors. Electrical wiring, plumbing, and HVAC systems were also installed during this stage, ensuring that the house was fully functional.

Our attention to detail was evident in the selection of fixtures and fittings. We collaborated with the client to choose high-quality materials and finishes that reflected their personal style and preferences. This included kitchen cabinetry, bathroom fixtures, flooring, and paint colors. Externally, we completed the landscaping, driveways, and fencing, enhancing the overall curb appeal of the property.

Completion: Finishing Touches

The final stage of the project involved adding the finishing touches and conducting a comprehensive quality inspection. This included installing final fittings, painting, and performing detailed cleaning to ensure that the house was ready for occupancy. Our team meticulously inspected every aspect of the house to ensure that it met our high standards and the client’s expectations.

Upon completion, we conducted a thorough walkthrough with the client, addressing any concerns and ensuring their complete satisfaction. The new two-storey house in Hampton East was a testament to Segalbuild’s commitment to excellence, quality craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction. The project not only met but exceeded the client’s expectations, delivering a beautiful and functional home that will be enjoyed for years to come.
