Are Archiblox qualified Architects?
Yes, indeed! Archiblox is a high-end Architectural practice with very experienced and qualified Architects. Your preliminary design is strictly created by qualified architects only. Then during the later stages, we’ll involve the wonderful support of our in-house Interior Designers and Draftspeople.
Are Archiblox registered builders?
Certainly. We have a highly skilled team that is responsible for the advanced technological build of your modules. Our team is also comprised of experienced Estimators, Project Managers, Carpenters, and Finishing Trades. This is how Archiblox achieve a result that is always a cut above the rest.
Can I make a change to the Smart Range set designs?
We love the Smart Range and have devoted a lot of thought to crafting very special and functional areas. This also allows us to offer truly impressive architectural pricing on each product, as much of the sketch has been prepared in advance. In order to avoid paying for an entirely custom project, we highly recommend defining how many bedrooms you’ll require and reviewing those particular Smart floorplans to pick out the plan that best suits your family, your age groups, and your lifestyle. (Note that any modifications to the Smart floorplans will require each department to re-draft, re-render, re-estimate, essentially deeming the project to be entirely custom).
Do you create custom designs?
Sure, we’re very mindful that sometimes you have a particular vision in mind and as the leading architects in prefab, we’re thrilled to help you achieve this through a personalised approach. The process can be as collaborative as you wish. We’ll need to gather a few initial details from you so that we can gather an understanding of the design brief (your requirements) and your budget. Once a quote is approved, we can jump into producing your first design package per the discussed design direction and budget goals.
How do Archiblox homes compare?
We’ve worked hard to ensure we are continuously leading the way in the prefab marketplace year after year. Our homes are strictly designed by architects, and no lesser qualified staff. This already places our team at a superior level of expertise than any other high profile prefab supplier. We are formally awarded for being the standout quality in prefab. We are the only team regularly approached, nominated and awarded for sustainability awards on a global scale. When it comes to comparing with traditional architects, we don’t take 2.5-3 years to complete a project. And our costs are approximately $250-450K lower each and every time for the average 3 bedroom house. As the awards would indicate, we offer the best quality, expertise, sustainability, timing, and certainly cost.
What are the standard ceiling heights?
Our standard ceiling heights are 2.7m for living module, and 2.55m in the bedrooms & bathroom modules. Very often the ceiling heights are adjusted depending on the site conditions. We’re happy to confirm that we offer a boosted ceiling should the client so wish request.
Is there a range of finishes to choose from?
Yes, absolutely. We’re proud to offer an impressive finish as the base starting point. You are then most welcome to make any adjustments you like (to taps, tiles, bench tops etc), to ensure the style and outcome are exactly as you envisaged. Our in-house interior designer comes from a stunning high end background and will offer expert advice along the way.
What is the standard module size?
Our modules vary in size and Archiblox generally produce the largest modules in Victoria. We achieve best results with a module size of up to 5.0 m in width and 16.0 m in length, however can work up to lengths of 18 m. All modules can be attached for longer lengths if required. This ensures the most cost effective result for our clients, as these sizes work best during installation. We can also try various other configurations as we understand each site will present its own unique potential
Where are the modules made?
The architectural workload and presentations take place in our Richmond Studio and the impressively efficient construction takes place in our Laverton facility.
Can I add more modules to my home in the future?
You certainly can. The flexibility of the modular design process ensures we can comfortably add to your home at a later date.
What type of projects does Archiblox work on?
At Archiblox, we’re adept at handling a diverse range of creative projects (new builds, extensions and knockdown rebuilds) from residential and multi-residential (coastal, urban, suburban, rural etc) to tiny studios or granny flats, and also efficient commercial projects from early learning to aged care and everything in-between.
What kind of commercial projects have you worked on?
Our commercial projects so far include retail outlets, medical centres, airline offices, schools, childcare centres, and bed & breakfasts, among others. Our flexible modular designs and efficient prefabricated processes are perfectly suited to the commercial environment – where a quick turnaround and certainty of costs are paramount.
Do you work with other Architects and Developers?
Yes, we’re excited to collaborate with architectural firms and developers, because we know that when great minds come together, breathtaking results always follow. We are very regularly approached to build for other Architects themselves as they’re aware it would take them so much longer to achieve a similar result on their own. Should you wish to collaborate, please get in touch and we’ll help to speed up your dream project.
Can you work with other Architects plans?
Yes, first we need to review the plans. We may need to modify to suit our modular construction methods but we’re always helpful with our feedback and we’d be happy to brainstorm together.
