WHAT IS THE PROCESS AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

First, one of our experienced team members will complete a site inspection and provide you with a project quote. Once you have accepted the quote, we will arrange for a soil test. After the soil test is complete, we will contact our engineers to provide computations and designs while we organise a building permit. Finally, work can commence, subject to the building permit approval, within two to four weeks of you accepting the quote.

We know that each job is unique so our experts will provide you with an indicative time frame with your quote.
