As a trusted Blue Mountains builder, we believe in delivering top-notch craftsmanship while being honest and transparent with our clients. Our commitment to the Blue Mountains community means we respect and preserve local architecture while integrating modern improvements.

Do you offer any guarantees on your work?
Yes, we stand by the quality of our work with comprehensive guarantees. All our building projects come with a satisfaction guarantee and a detailed warranty to ensure you have peace of mind long after the project is completed.

How do you handle project costs?
We offer clear and transparent pricing with detailed quotes provided before any construction begins. Our cost structures are flexible to suit your needs, whether it’s a fixed price or a cost-plus arrangement. We ensure there are no hidden costs, and we communicate any potential changes promptly.

 

How will you communicate with me throughout the project?
Communication is key to a successful building project. From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, we keep you informed at every stage. You'll receive regular updates, have scheduled meetings, and be able to contact your dedicated project manager anytime you have questions or concerns.

Are you familiar with Blue Mountains building regulations?

Absolutely. As local Blue Mountains builders, we are experts in local building regulations and have extensive experience working within the Blue Mountains council's guidelines. This includes compliance with heritage preservation rules and specific construction requirements for the area.

How do you ensure compliance with bushfire safety standards?
The Blue Mountains are a beautiful but bushfire-prone area, and we take compliance with bushfire safety standards very seriously. We use fire-resistant materials, design structures to meet Blue Mountains BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) ratings, and follow all relevant building codes to ensure your home is safe and secure.

Do I need council approval?

It depends on the scope and specifics of your project. Certain types of construction may require Development Approval (DA) from the Blue Mountains City Council. Lightscape Building can assist you in determining whether your project needs council approval and guide you through the application process.

Do I need an engineer?

The need for an engineer varies based on the complexity and requirements of your project. Structural, electrical, and plumbing plans often require input from licensed engineers to ensure safety and compliance. Lightscape Building can help you assess whether engineering services are needed for your project.

Do I need a Private Certifier?

Yes, if your project requires council approval, a Private Certifier will be necessary to issue a Construction Certificate (CC) and ensure compliance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA). Lightscape Building can assist you in engaging a qualified Private Certifier to streamline the approval process.

Can you handle multiple building projects simultaneously?
