Frequently Asked Questions

What type of projects do you build?
At Glencoe we build high quality new house, extensive alterations and additions, and light commercial construction. While we offer a design and build process we will also quote on your plans provided by your own architect or architectural designer.

How does the design process work?
We like to meet with you and discuss your requirements. This meeting can either be in your own environment or at our office. From this meeting we will draw up a sketch plan based on your wishes and incorporating aspects that will best suit your site. From this sketch plan we will suggest finishes & budgets. You will then have the opportunity to review this sketch and make changes if required.

How much will my house/project cost?
The cost of your completed project depends on a number of factors: These include style of house, choice of materials, site conditions etc. We can give you an estimated square metre rate on different styles of homes.

What is the time frame to build?
Once again the time frame is influenced by many factors, these include style and size of you project and weather conditions. Regular site meeting will keep you updated with progress.

Where do you build?
We build in the Rotorua, Whakatane, Taupo and South Waikato areas.

What is the time frame for Building Consents?
The working drawings and building consent process is now a lot more involved and this process now takes longer to complete. A building consent can take up to a month to be processed and if a resource consent is required this will take longer. We will apply for these consents on your behalf.

What do I do about interior design, kitchen design and selection of products?
Glencoe offer a personal service. We realize that building is one of the largest investments that most people are likely to make and our service includes visits to interior designers, kitchen manufacturers and we will assist in the selection of plumbing fittings etc.

Do you have standard plans?
No, at Glencoe we believe every client has different needs, all sections are different and we prefer to design a home that is based on your requirements and the best fit to the site taking into consideration the position of the sun, views so that good indoor / outdoor living is achieved. We do have examples of plans that we have built before to give you some ideas.

Is there a guarantee?
All residential projects be it new house or alterations and additions come with a 7 year Master Build guarantee.

What do we have to do?
We will run the whole process for you and work with you to ensure that you have time to finalise your selections for colours, kitchen design etc.

Individual homes designed and built to reflect your lifestyle.
