The Summit Property Development Process

  • 1. Obligation free consultation

    As your development partner, we will sit down with you to understand your goals. We start by listening to you so we can provide you with the best value, end to end solution for your block, to ensure you see maximum return on investment.

    This also includes an assessment of your block, to identify the best development solution that meets your needs and budget.

  • 2. Feasibility study

    Any successful development requires a detailed feasibility study, where we analyse your project to maximise the potential returns and minimise the risk of any cost blowouts.

    Initially we will order a feature contour survey for your block. This allows us to correctly assess your block and create detailed home designs to suit the block, shire/council requirements and at the same time minimise your development costs. 

  • 3. Presentation and approval

    Once completed we'll present the results of the feasibility study to you, including completed designs and an itemised list of specifications and inclusions.

    We present these in a fully detailed fixed price quote. This fixed price quote ensures that you know the exact cost of your development before you commit to building with Summit.

    As your development partner, we want you to feel confident with the costs associated with your investment and your expected returns. We're here every step of the way to answer any questions.

  • 4. Planning approvals

    Once you have reviewed the quote and agreed to move forward, our development team will get started on planning approvals.

    As development experts, Summit understand the shire/council process, and seek to minimise any delays, therefore expediting the process to construction on your behalf.

    For example, we lodge for planning approval before producing working drawings and contracts.

  • 5. Contracts

    We will present, explain and check the contract thoroughly with you, to ensure you have a full understanding of what the contract includes before progressing to the prestart phase.

  • 6. Prestart

    Your dedicated prestart consultant will guide you through the process of choosing the right colours, fittings and fixtures to add further value to your development.

  • 7. Build

    Communication during construction is important to us and you will be provided with ongoing progress updates through our online customer portal as well as a dedicated team member to assist you with any additional information.

    We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service during construction by providing you direct access to your site supervisor at all times during the construction process.

  • 8. Key handover

    At the end of the construction stage, your site supervisor will take you through a final inspection of your development and hand over the keys to your new home or investment.
