Our process. Our process.

We do everything for you. Our highly specialised team will project manage every step. From the initial creative concept to Council works (if required), to the exciting interiors fitout, right through to the amazing installation.

Preliminary Design

  • Introduction

    We’d love to hear what you have in mind and how we can make those plans come to life.

    Once you’re ready to pop in, please click here to book a free consultation in our office. This informative 30 - 45min session provides an overview of our super easy step-by-step process, time frames and fee structure. By the end, you’ll be well briefed, signed up, and ready to schedule your site visit with one of our qualified architects. If you are interstate or your schedule is just to hectic don't worry, we would be more than happy to talk through your project and the Archiblox process over the phone.

    ArchiBlox has an impressive and award winning approach to modular design, and this flexibility perfectly lends itself to providing exceptional results in the field of residential as well as commercial architecture. We don’t believe in one size fits all, as we respect that each exciting project comes with its own wealth potential, and of course its own technical guidelines, parameters, and deadlines. So we are committed to ensuring the needs of each individual project are met, no matter the scale of works. And so far we have a diverse range of absolutely delighted clients and collaborations.

  • Site Visit & Preliminary Design Package

    Congratulations on engaging the leaders of prefab, ArchiBlox. Let’s get started!

    We'll send an ArchiBlox Architect to assess your site and surrounds. We’ll also spend quality time discussing either your selected ‘Smart Design’, or your personalised direction for a Custom Design. Please share all of your inspirations and concerns so that we can translate this information for you.

    Two weeks later we'll be ready to present your design package. This includes 3D external renders, the standard Archiblox specifications and any upgrades integrated so far. We'll also include a breakdown of costings that have factored in the external consultants and required reports.

    The charge for our Architectural Service is only $3,395 (VIC), $5,695 (NSW, ACT, SA, QLD, TAS) and $7,275 (WA/NT).

  • Revisions

    With a Custom direction, we're ready for your feedback and to begin making some adjustments so its perfect for you. We're happy to provide up to two rounds of revisions, free of charge. Knowing that costings are updated each time will also help you stay on top of your budget.

    Please note that, with a Smart Design, we don’t delay with revisions as we’ve already pre-prepared the floorplan. This is one of the main reasons that we can offer such great pricing. We’ll skip Stage 3 revisions and jump straight into Stage 4 or 5 for you.

Documentation & Contracts

  • Town Planning or Development Approval (if required)

    This step does not apply to all clients. If your particular site needs to go through a formal council approval process, Archiblox will diligently prepare all of this documentation and submit it on your behalf, so that you don’t have to manage the works yourself. We’ll also coordinate any other relevant surveys and reports that may be applicable in your case.

    Once submitted, we anticipate a three-month approval process, however this can depend on various factors and can take longer.

    If your site does not require this council approval, we can bypass Stage 4 and jump straight into Stage 5. For interstate clients, this means we’re happy to bypass DA and proceed with CDC, where possible.

    The approximate cost of managing this process for a 3 bedroom project are approx. $10,000 - $20,000. Of course, the final cost will be calculated per project.

  • Interior Design and Engineering

    This is the inspiring and creative finish line you've been looking forward to. Our high end in-house Interior Designer will guide you through a stunning array of finishes and fixtures to help you achieve the exact look you are after. Our goal is to provide all the design expertise and guidance so that you don't feel overwhelmed by the options.

    Whilst the specifications are being finalised with your interiors, we'll also be coordinating the last few reports in the background, along with the final consultants and engineering.

    The costing for this architectural documentation is calculated per project.

  • Contracts

    Now its time to compile all of the finalised documentation into a reliable HIA contract for you. This will capture all warranties and insurances for your peace of mind. Once signed off, we can carefully handover with the facility team, and start your build.

Construction & Delivery

  • Construction

    ArchiBlox is proud to formally produce the highest quality prefabricated construction in all of Victoria.

    We’re quick too! So hold onto your seats, the build will be over before you know it! Our Smart Designs only take 8-12 weeks to build in our facility. (Custom Designs may take longer, depending on the scale and complexity.)

    You'll be liaising directly with your friendly Project Manager who will be keeping you posted with progress updates, photos, and phone calls along the way. Your Project Manager will also happily coordinate a visit to the facility if you wish to take a sneak peak.

    Costings for this stage of work will be much like other builds you’ve experienced, and will be broken down as follows. Building Deposit (5%), base stage (10%), frame stage (15%), roofing (10%), windows (10%), lock up (20%), internal linings (5%), joinery (7.5%), and carpentry (10%).

  • Delivery & Handover

    Welcome home! Our ArchiBlox experts will only spend a single day craning your house in, and only a couple of weeks ticking off the finishing touches, services connections, and outdoor decking (if applicable).

    You can now take your kids by the hand as we give you the guided tour through your inspiring and architecturally completed home. The design and detail will be exactly as you’d requested, and the regular guidance will have made the process an absolute breeze.

    We’re always just a phone call away, should you wish to ask any questions during your 90-day defects period. Most often though, we hear from your friends and family that are now excited to begin discussing their own project ideas. Having achieved another beautiful build, we thank you for our creative time together.
