Demolishing your existing house
It is recommended that you gain at least 3 quotes for demolition of your existing property but do not knock down the house until Kingsbridge informs you.
1. Asbestos Removal
Make sure you are asking the demolition companies if this is a service they can provide as this would be an ideal company to engage.
2. Demolition Permit
3. Removal of Trees
4. Remove existing services
5. Water & Electricity Pits
6. Asset Protection
7. Pool (if applicable)
This wall can be used as the new fence in lieu of replacing with timber/ Colorbond.
Frequently asked questions.
Installing a pool prior to site start is common due to the amount of access saving much needed funds.You will need to provide size and location detail of the pool prior to Tender appointment so that it will not impede the location of the home and once the shell is installed cover the pool with an approved pool cover from Buildsafe.
Generally within 6 weeks.
We may need to think about amending the placement of your new home or revisiting design to avoid any issues. Generally speaking though if you provide a security for your neighbour i.e. temporarily relocating their side gate, provide temporary fencing to the gap and cover with shade cloth.
Allow 8 weeks all up, but generally 2 weeks for applications and 4 weeks to abolish.
