Construction here in Perth is already achieving high standards and this is due to the level of trades that are available. Our goal at Carbon Homes is to enhance the already existing skills set with tried and tested European practices and innovative technologies to achieve a high end performing product.

Our team keep up to date with new and innovative building technologies and ensure that these are incorporated into your home design providing the edge on standard homes.

We understand how singular, locally sourced and traditional building materials such as ‘double Brick’ can be used in conjunction with one another to produce a high performing building envelope.

We believe in the principles of being a considerate contractor as all parties affected directly or indirectly by the process can have a positive impact on the end result.

The reward for me is realisation from the client after they have been living in their new home for a short while how much their internal living environment has improved for their family.

We aim to make building a simple process and we will explain the difference of building with us and how we can save you money for the life of your property..

Creative stage

Our Architectural team will to go through ideas and concept designs with you before the full design starts to ensure we all understand the design aspirations. We will work collaboratively with all our client to develop the home you want not just a standard layout. We will discuss your individual design brief to ensure we design the home to include your style and features.

Construction documents & approvals

When we have completed your design and gone through all your specifications will explain the cost and adjust the design to achieve your budgets. The next step is to prepare building contracts and the construction documentation for council approval. Depending on the local authority, it is likely that you will require a development approval. We will engage our own Building Certification Consultants to deal with the application process and government departments to ensures a smooth and fast application process.

Detailed designs & planning

Once all the documents have been completed, we will begin working on your interior design. We want to provide interiors with a point of difference to make your property stand out and we will provide ideas and options for the inside and outside of your home. When we have completed the design, which is tailored to your exact requirements, we will then submit the design for building license.

Construction

The home building process will be planned and efficiently delivered using low carbon homes expertise in construction and engineering.
