HG Building Group have been designing and building energy efficient homes long before it became mandatory.
A FIRST Home buyer and previous Home Owners have, to a varying degree, the same desire: an individually designed Home.
Is it achievable: YES, by tailoring the design to the individual Need and Budget.
How: The HG Building Group Design Team works closely with the HG Building Group Construction Team. Their combined effort produces a design that meets both the aspirations of the Client and their budget.
The HG Building Group Architectural Design Team considers factors like:
Tailoring existing designs to reduce documentation costs
Orientation (the effect the Sun has on the block of land)
Slope of the land, if any
More affordable alternatives and equally effective means of achieving energy efficiency. For example: using a light weight alternative to a suspended concrete slab.
The HG Building Group Structural Design Team considers factors like:
Cost effective foundation designs to provide a strong foundation without un-necessary costs;
Cost effective design of the supporting framework
Less expensive alternatives to achieve the design intent.
The teams work closely together to achieve a sound, functional and energy efficient building that looks and feels like your Dream Home while ensuring that your home is built to your BUDGET.
However, this also means the Budget controls:
The increased choice of fittings, appliances, bench-tops, etc.
The added comfort features; and
The overall increase in value of your home.
But, as many of you know, this must always be in keeping with the value of similar properties in your area.
