Get in touch

More Info

We will provide a free consultation to discuss your ideas and advise on the feasibility of various building options. This allows us to also see how we can add value to your project. Being a local Warkworth building company, the person you speak to on the end of the phone is the same person that you’ll be dealing with onsite when your build begins.

Site discussions

More Info

One of our team will meet with you onsite to discuss your ideas. We will hear what is important to you – your wants, needs and budget expectations – and provide feedback on the spot. If you are unsure on what you want exactly, what you’re allowed to do and what it is all going to cost, that’s fine. At Darcy Homes, our role is to clarify the design and consent process for you.

Choose the right plan

More Info

All great things in life start with a well thought out plan. If you need panning help, our design and build services offer ‘off-the-shelf’ plans you can customise. We will meet onsite to discuss the full scope of works, taking into account your scenery, orientation, natural light, and anticipating possible variables.

More Info

At this stage designs will be reviewed and discussed before we prepare an estimate for you to consider. Once you have approved the final concept plans and pricing estimates, we will prepare all the working drawings, which go to our QS (Quantity Surveyor) for a thorough breakdown of all costs. We price everything, including engineers, estimated council costs, and all sub-contractors and tradies. We then prepare a building contract: a fixed price contract that is presented to you for approval and confirmation. At this point the 10-year Halo Building Guarantee can come into play. Halo is an independent building cover that’s only available to people who build or renovate with an NZCB approved builder – that’s us.

Council consent

More Info

We are here to work with you and for you during what many homeowners find to be a daunting: the consent process for. We take the hassle out of dealing with the council. Once we have agreed on your budget and have a full set of drawings, plans are submitted to council and we manage the consent process on your behalf, taking care of all compliance issues. We will be the initial point of contact with council, respond to any requests for additional information and get consent approval on your behalf.
