Many factors determine the cost of building. Some important ones to consider are type of section, style of house, how highly you spec your home; however we will work with you to ensure we provide a square metre rate within your budget. As a guideline we have three investment ranges, our Reflection range starts at $ 2,000 per square metre, our Reflection Plus range from $ 2,200 to $ 2,400 per square metre and our Gallery range and Multi Level rate at $2,400 plus per square metre. The good thing about our rates is that once quoted, they don’t change.
