About The Project

Location was very important in this project. The land was nicely positioned right next to a primary school and in great school zones. As well as being close the Albany Mall and Mega Centre, it also provided easy access to the motorway. The site gave a very open outlook provding a very spacious feel and not a feeling of being boxed in. With schools, shops and motorway access this made it an candidate for selling easily on the open market.

What We Did

After subdivision we built 1 brick home and 1 weatherboard home. Construction was staggered between the two builds to maximise the tradesmen's consecutive work streams, and optimise timelines.

  • Purchased land and prepared building platform.
  • Collaborating with architect to prepare Building Consents.
  • Maximising the site for outdoor use and open views.
  • Optimising timeline, staggering work between houses.
  • Construction and landscaping of 2 new homes.
  • Preparing homes and landscaping for sale.
  • Selling both homes on the open market.


On completion of this project we had...

  • Reduced holding costs by optimising concurrent building.
  • Turned 1 large property into 2 properties 453-473m2.
  • Built 2 brand new split-level homes, 208-247m2.
  • Provided open view outlooks to both properties.
  • Landscaped the entire site.
  • Location ideal for good schools and shopping centres.
  • Produced healthy profit.
  • Generated 2 happy home owners.
