A second storey addition can create a parent’s retreat, additional living space or even capture a view. With Unique Residence, your second storey addition is designed to create a space which is functional, adds value and improves your lifestyle. Important factors which influence all additions are orientation, layout of existing home & budget. Your initial complimentary consultation with our Builder Adam, is all about understanding your requirements, expectations and vision.
With Unique Residence, we work with you to provide you complete flexibility and freedom with your addition. Construction packages start from “built to lock-up” through to full “Turnkey completion” ready to enjoy your new space. These may include floor coverings, window treatments and even landscaping.
Design & Approvals
If you already have drawings for your proposed extension or addition project, we can provide you a fixed price quotation.
Otherwise, if you require help to design your second storey addition, we have experienced designers who have designed hundreds of renovation and extension projects. Concept plans are developed to your liking, before working drawings and council applications are submitted. Sometimes, planning approval is required, but most of the time we can skip this step and go straight to building approval.
We organise our works and trades to minimise disruption to your daily routine and your home during construction. Second storey additions can be quite disruptive due to the extent of the works. Each project is different and so we carefully plan and assess the impacts to you and provide you a detailed schedule of the works so that you can organise around the upcoming activities. We maintain constant communication with you and we spend a significant amount of time supervising the works to ensure things go smoothly.
Second storey additions are typically timber/steel framed construction. The advantage of framed construction is reduced time of construction, reduced Engineering costs & wide range of cladding materials available which compliment your existing home.
Your Second storey addition completed to lock-up stage, generally takes 2 months, and about 3 months for a full turnkey package depending on the extent of the fit-out works.
Our efficiency and the way we manage our building projects ensures that you get to take advantage of your brand new addition as quickly as possible, but to the quality and workmanship that you expect.
Upon request, we can arrange a private viewing from our portfolio of completed projects, the results will speak for themselves.
