Initial meeting with Topic Builders, Geelong
Simply bring your ideas into our Geelong office, from a page out of a magazine, sketches, pictures from the Internet or just your thoughts, and we will transform them into home designs that take into account your building style, site and budget.
At Topic Builders we are proud to have strong working relationships with leading architects including Chris Manton from JAM Architects, Leon Meyer and Lachlan Shepherd and our own in-house architect, Buck Grgic.
We understand how important it is that our Geelong house designs are within your budget and our builders and architects work closely together to ensure your individual budget is met. This allows us to provide you with the right advice to achieve the home you want.
Geelong house design concepts
At Topic Builders, our initial concept design stage allows you to meet one-on-one with the architect of your choice to discuss your house plans. We listen to you and incorporate your ideas with regard to your home designs, budget and site details. Importantly, this process also allows our architects to contribute their own professional advice and experience towards your project. The concept design involves showing you the proposed house designs, floor plans and elevations both in two-dimensional and three-dimensional form. The “3D” computer-generated images show you exactly what your new home will look like once it is built.
We will also discuss the level of fittings and finishings you would like, ensuring we provide you with an early but accurate estimate of the project costs. Site inspections are also completed at this stage to confirm house floor plans can be accommodated within the site.

Environmentally friendly houses, Geelong
One of the primary objectives of Topic Builders is to design environmentally friendly houses. By using a sustainable house design you can achieve the most practical assistance available from the natural environment.
Professional design elements and sustainable architecture will ensure your eco-friendly home is cost-effective to run and impacts on the environment as little as possible. Solar panels are often used along with low-voltage downlights and environmentally sustainable timbers. All rainwater is collected via sealed systems and diverted to on-site tanks. The correct alignment of double-glazed windows will control natural sunlight and cross-ventilating breezes. Crucial placement of living areas and well-designed structuring of eaves will also reduce your power bills and minimise your environmental footprint and provide you with sustainable housing.
Topic Builders are proud to design and construct sustainable homes with a six-star minimum energy rating and have a genuine commitment to quality architectural home designs and the use of eco-friendly materials and building practices.

Development of your house plans, Geelong
The design development stage involves the architect and builder resolving any construction elements that might exist with the house designs. At Topic Builders, we work to ensure we maintain the architectural integrity of your design in the most cost-effective way possible.
Soil reports and other relevant site information are recorded in order to produce detailed working drawings and house plans incorporating engineering design, energy ratings, cabinetry and electrical layouts. Our architect will oversee the process to ensure your expectations as a client are not just met, but exceeded. We guide you through the process of choosing external and internal colours, floor and wall coverings and all other fittings and fixtures throughout the home.
You can be confident in Topic Builders – we will step you through every stage of the design and building process to ensure the finished result is a stunning and functional home for years to come.
Contracts & specifications for new homes, Geelong
The final stage of the house design process involves completing documentation for all our new homes in Geelong and district.
As Geelong builders focused on premium outcomes, we ensure our clients receive building contracts, project specifications and complete working drawings. All aspects of payment schedules and required permits will be fully explained by Topic Builders so our clients understand the entire building process.
Most importantly, we ensure that as our client, you are kept fully informed at every stage of the documentation process to ensure a smooth transition to the building process. We are known for our holistic approach to each individual home and we love what we do – building your dream home. Contact us if you have questions about the documentation for your new home.
