Just Screw It can help with your renovation from start to finish with 7 easy steps!
If you're interested in submitting a DA for a renovation, JSI will send over an experienced estimator to discuss what you want to do. We will provide our best opinion as to what we would advise you to do, depending on your needs with a mind for not overcapitalizing and designing something that will/can be approved. At our initial meeting we can give some ballpark costs for different scenarios so you can decide which way to go.
JSI has 4 different building and design people and an interior designer that we use to help design your project. Depending on your particular needs and type of project, JSI will refer the "right" building and design person to work with you to get your desired end result. JSI will usually arrange a meeting with one of our building and design people and if their fee proposal seems fair we then begin the design process.
After the initial meeting with the building designer they will usually come back to you with a concept drawing(s) to make sure they are on the right track. If all seems good then they draft your plans. Usually you have a few progress meeting and a final meeting to fine tune your thoughts.
After the plans are ready for submission for a DA to council, JSI will normally meet with you again to take a full brief as to quality of finishes. We can then begin to "fine tune your estimate" so you have a better idea of the building costs now that we can see what it is exactly you want to build.
Our building planner will fill out all the onerous forms and submit them to council and then manage the DA process. Managing a DA is where we receive any comments from council and provide any additional information requested. If we think your DA might be difficult or have any special considerations we can enlist the services of a Town Planning Consultant that has worked on the "other side of the bench" so he/she can help cut through the red tape and boil the issues down and negotiate with council like no one else can.
Your DA is approved. We now can help you get your CC (Construction Certificate) from one of our private certifiers so you can get your project underway!!!
