Our Process

We specialise in the design and construction of first floor and ground floor home extensions.
As home addition builders, we work with you from the design stage right through to construction, helping you implement your own ideas and styles with almost 30 years of building knowledge and experience.

Our process to help you:


When you book in for a quick site visit, we will send you an Apex pack which will provide you with our story and more information about our company and past projects. You will then spend time with one of our experienced builders, where you will have personalised and one-on-one time to talk about your home addition. When we attend the site visit:

  1. We listen to your ideas
  2. Then discuss with you what you require in your extension and what your needs are
  3. We also answer any questions you may have concerning your home extension
  4. We make suggestions as to how we could best fulfil your needs
  5. Your home designs, planning, approvals and our simple process
  6. Different ideas you can use that would best suit your situation or needs
  7. We then establish a preliminary budgetary figure of how much the job will/should cost


We will follow you up in a week or two on what you have decided to do and we will provide you with words of wisdom and guidance from our almost 30 years of experience in this industry. If you decide you would like to proceed with a full measure up and quote, we will book a time for you and our experienced builder to visit your home once again but this time to measure up the proposed areas of the addition.


We will present the exact amount the job will cost as well as draft concept plans, 3D computer generated plans and images of what your home will look like after the extension and walkthrough plans. If you are happy to proceed with the extension, you wouldn’t have to do anything else; we take care of everything from then on!
