Our unique tender and cost planning process ensures that you get the best possible value on your project while making the entire building journey transparent and stress-free.
By working with an exclusive network of builders, whom we trust and have built for our clients before - we remove the risks and uncertainty out of selecting the right builder for your project.
The 3-Step Process
With Over 80% Of Architectural Projects Never Getting Built - Our Service Ensures That Yours Does.
Step 1: Discussing Your Project
Do you have existing plans?
If Yes - YNH will provide you with a quick estimate to let you know what we can approximately get the project built for. If it falls within your budget, we move to Step 2.
If you don't have plans or permits, YNH can organize all the preliminary design and pre-construction documentation for you.
The goal at this stage is to identify whether the project can be built within your budget or not.
If we believe the budget is too tight, or the design and specifications don't work - we can value manage and redesign the build.
We have helped past clients reduce build costs by up to 20% through value engineering.
Who is YNH for?
Typically, our clients are looking to build projects within the $500K - $7.5M range.
Step 2: Cost Planning & Design
If our initial estimate is within your budget, we will begin preparing your tender package for distribution to our builders.
We will also do our own Bill of Quantities estimate - an extremely detailed cost plan breaking down all elements of the build to minute detail.
Using our proprietary estimating model, we get a clear picture of the construction costs before going to tender. This is a full take-off similar to what builders do and takes 5-10 working days to complete.
We do the leg work up front in order to avoid major issues down the track.
This process allows us to sit down together and make educated decisions about your project.
Such as - what to include and exclude, finishes we can optimise, certain items we can quote from our various suppliers and contacts to bring costs down.
The estimating and cost planning phase of projects is the most important - we give it the thought and attention it deserves.
Step 3: Building Tender
Once all the design, specifications, and pre-construction items are completed, we can move forward to tendering.
At this point - You're happy with the cost plan and expected price of construction and the build has all the inclusions and finishes you desire.
It's now time to hand-pick the builders to tender on your project.
We ensure all quotes are apples for apples and that you get the best value to build, guaranteed.
We then help you decide which builder to choose and assist with contracts and negotiations. However, the final decision is all yours.
Whomever YOU choose remunerates YNH out of their margin. Simple.
If any issues arise with the builder - we are there to mediate disputes and ensure everything stays on track.
We specialize in higher-end homes & developments.
YNH prepares an initial design brief that takes into account sizing, budget, and your individual desires.
We work with a number of design partners and will connect you with the most suited for your project.
They will now become part of the project team. YNH and the designer will work in tandem to deliver your requirements.
Note: If you already have existing plans and permits, or would prefer to use your own designer; then we go straight to the pre-tender phase (Step 3).
