8 Step Process Overview

For residential construction projects, we have an eight-step process that we go through to bring a project from the first discussion to final completion. Not all of the steps apply to all projects. Most will apply to new build projects, however, as well as to larger renovation projects.
Below is an overview of the eight-step process, but you can read about it in more detail on our Building Process page.



Design Consultation

We’ll arrange a meeting with you where we will find out what you want to achieve. From this meeting, initial sketches can be created. You can work with an architect you have selected, or we can recommend one.




We’ll use our expert knowledge of the residential construction industry to provide estimates for the cost of building your home based on the sketches that have been created. You can then make a decision about moving to the next stage.



Architectural Plans

Your architect will create working drawings. Engineering requirements will also be specified, and materials will be selected during this stage.



Costings and Timeframe

Detailed costs will be worked out, and we will provide you with a comprehensive quote. We’ll also give you a timeline for the project. Once you confirm you are happy to proceed and have signed the contract, we’ll give you a Master Builders guarantee.



Building Consents

Any necessary building consents will be applied for and obtained at this stage.



Project Starts

Work ill start on-site, with all aspects of the construction looked after by our skilled in-house team and trusted list of sub-contractors.



Project Management

This step runs simultaneously with Step 6, as we’ll fully project manage the build. This includes putting project insurance in place, setting milestones, and communicating with you effectively.



Project Completion

After a final quality control check and walk-through with you, your dream home will be ready to move into.

Our Gallery

You can see examples of the work that we do in our gallery, as well as what some of our house plans look like when fully built.

Building Quality New Homes in Rotorua

At Tissink Builders, we have built many new houses over the years, creating a wealth of experience that we will bring to your project. Building new homes in Rotorua is our specialty.

Our many years in the industry mean we have also developed strong relationships with the best local subcontractors who complement our strong, skilled, and well-trained in-house team.

This is the depth of knowledge and skill that we will use when building your new home. We can build from plans being created by your architect, but we can also help if you haven’t got to that stage yet as we also offer a full-scale design and build service. More details on our design and build service are below.

If we are building from your architect’s plans, we’ll use our expertise to make the process as smooth as possible. This includes providing accurate cost estimates as well as providing design input from a builder’s perspective.

Once you appoint us as your house builders in Rotorua, we will start planning the work using our extensive project management skills. Our goal will be to complete the build to the highest possible standard as well as ensuring it finishes on time and within budget. Get in touch to start the process today.

Design and Build Services

We have spent considerable time creating a portfolio of ready-to-go house plans for you to choose from. We have plans for various build budgets, as well as designs to suit a wide variety of tastes. Wherever you are building in Rotorua, and whatever you want to achieve, we are the builders who can help.

By choosing one of our house plans, you will save money as our off-the-shelf plans are less costly than the fees charged by architects. Also, as our plans are ready to go, we’ll be able to start work on-site with minimal delays, helping to make the construction schedule for your new home as short as possible.

You can view the various designs we have available on our house plans page. To discuss what you want to achieve and to get advice from a member of our team, please get in touch with us today.
